1) Dry Shampoo. If you haven’t tried this stuff you should… seriously amazing. I’ve tried three dry shampoos to date, each has pros and cons.
--Bed Head Rockaholic Dry Shampoo. Smells fab, doesn’t add too much texture and quickly absorbs oil. The problem? The aerosol quits working long before the can runs out of product. It’s really annoying and the product doesn’t last long.
--Batiste Dry Shampoo. This product can be purchased at Sally’s Beauty Supply. It’s cheap, works well, and out lasts Bed Head by a long shot. The problem? It smells weird. The fragrance is strong and not all that pleasant. Come to think of it the smell might have had something to do with my can lasting so long.
--Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo. Of the dry shampoos this was by far my favorite. It smells good and lasts longer than the Bed Head alternative, although in the end, the nozzle still clogged before the product ran out. It leaves your hair with kind of a hair sprayed feeling but it’s oil absorbing powers last at least two days (I haven’t tested it beyond that but I have no doubt it could keep your hair oil free for a week).
2) TRESemme Waterless Foam Shampoo. This is not a dry shampoo. A mousse-like product pumps out of the bottle. This is nice because the nozzle never clogs. It makes your hair smell fantastic but I was really disappointed when it came to oil removal. It really doesn’t help in that department.
3) Baby powder. This is by far the cheapest option and it works well. Just be careful to rub it in all the way because otherwise you’ll be walking around all day with white powder in your hair (people around you will be asking themselves: Dandruff? Early graying?... just trust me, rub it in).
That’s all I’ve got… Any suggestions from our lovely readers???
