Dry Shampoo

Recommended Posts

I didn't like the Tresemme one - it looked good upon first application, but after 5 minutes, my hair looked greasy again.  I'm currently using Big Sexy Hair's dry shampoo and it's okay considering the fact that it leaves my hair all crunchy feeling. :/ Still on a hunt for the perfect one. :P

I love Pssst and Batiste. I like Pssst more just because the scent isn't as strong to me as the batiste ones that I have tried. I get headaches really easily. My tip with dry shampoo is to spray it in your hair and let it sit for 5 minutes or so. I spray mine in right before I put makeup on. Then after I let it sit, i run my fingers through my hair as if I'm 'shampooing' it. I feel that my hair looks less oily and I also feel that it doesn't leave your hair with the 'dry shampoo feeling'. :)

Dove works wonders on my hair, but I find the scent pretty overwhelming... any recommendations on ones (other than Psssst) that aren't highly scented?

I also love batiste (the original) and found that if I spray it in my hair at night right before I go to bed it gives it a chance to get tousled through my hair and gets rid of any of the white residue.

I have a few recommendations.

 

If you want that great volume (lets face it, second day hair is usually flat) go with Big Sexy's. Its amazing for that.

 

If you have darker hair and are worried about it showing, go with Kenra Platinum Dry Shampoo.

 

For smell, I like Tigi's Rockaholic dry shampoo.

 

Just some suggestions. :)

 

ps - keep in mind if you're going to be using a dry shampoo quite a bit, probably wouldn't hurt to use a clarifying shampoo once and a while.

Blow Pro Faux Dry! It is amazing. I've tried nearly every dry shampoo under the sun. I don't have much luck with drug store brands at all. I have very fine, straight and easily oily hair that typically needs washed every day. I've noticed if I put a little dry shampoo on my roots at night, that I can get away without washing the next day.

I've used Psssssst  and Batiste.  I prefer Batiste.  When I use Psssssst , I can feel if when I run my hands through my hair, and I can't seem to stop myself from running my hands through my hair when I have stuff in it.  Batiste is less noticeable. I tried both baby powder and corn starch years ago.  It left my hair looking like a powdered wig.
I agree! Batiste has one for dark hair now so it doesn't leave a white residue on your roots. I tried using just baby powder (a recommendation from my very Swedish, very blonde sister-in-law) and it leaves an undesired effect for hair thats on the darker end of the spectrum.

Thank you so much for your advice.  That's why I noticed that my hair is falling and thinning, I should refrain from shampooing my hair daily so I really need to use dry shampoo.  What dry shampoo can you recommend?  Please help, it is tedious if I will make one for myself since I become very busy nowadays.  Lol

I bought this today actually because I was out of dry shampoo and they didn't have the dove one. I've only used Suave before and I don't care for the smell. I like how NYM's has no scent and left no white in my super red hair.

 

ETA: A few hours after using this product and my hair is so soft and clean feeling! Like it feels the way it does the day after washing it. Suave always left my hair so stiff and dry and NYM's has my hair nice and manageable. I have definitely found a winner!

The Not Your Mothers brand didn't leave a white cast in my hair today and I just finger combed it through as I had curled my hair the day or so before.

I like Batiste in the pink can. But I tend to go through dry shampoo fast so I buy the cheap stuff. I usually use the regular Suave one- the smell is strong right when you spray it but fades by the time I'm ready to do my hair. I recently tried the Herbal Essences dry shampoo and this one actually smells really good! I like them both :)

I just bought a Shea Cashmere dry shampoo from Bath & Body Works. I'm super interested to see how it works!

Dove, one of the most trusted hair-care brands in the world, is out with a very effective range of shampoos. Dove Intense Damage Therapy Shampoo helps in repairing the damaged and dry hair, while helping regain the shine. After few washes, you will be able to see visible results. It is one shampoo, which I would recommend personally for dry and damaged hair.

who else uses dry shampoo as a volumnizing/texturizing product? I do.  I wash my hair daily with the liquid stuff - but I have baby fine, very oily , very straight hair.  I find dry shampoo's give my newly washed hair the volume, texture I need and I don't have issues with it looking dull, because my hair is so naturally shiny (due to the oils)

We have about 9 people living in my current household with one main bathroom and one private one. Yeah, I definitely need some sort of oil absorbing product for my hair. Grabbed Treseme because of a clearance sale but wasn't wowed with it & the white cast. I also tried ground oatmeal & made a huge mess with that.

When using dry shampoo, you can apply the product down your part and around your hairline in case of normak hair. In case of oily hair, you may also want to apply it through the top layers of your hair.

I use dry shampoo a few times a week.  I usually shower daily but once a week or so I give my body a day 'off' to regenerate natural oils and keep my skin from getting too dry.  I have really thick heavy hair so if I don't use a dry shampoo on those days my roots start to look slightly greasy and I lose volume.  I haven't found too much of a difference between brands so far.  Tresemme, Suave, L'Oreal, Herbal Essences, and Rusk dry shampoos have all worked about the same for me with just small variations in scent and feel.  Suave, which is probably the cheapest, works great for me.

I use them when I want more volume. It also helps me tease my hair since my hair is really fine and it hold all day!

 

 

(holy crap I had my title spelled wrong. Good thing I'm naturally blonde. I shouldn't type stuff when I'm tired! lol)

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
