Dry Shampoo: Summer’s Essential June 3, 2014 Post Written By: Elissa Bulgatz If you haven’t yet tried dry shampoo, you’re missing out on one of the most versatile products on the market! It’s a great styling essential for your beauty arsenal. It extends a blowout AND is particularly ideal for those days you just don’t feel like washing your hair. Before using dry shampoo, I used to wash (and style) my hair everyday! Do you know how much time that takes?? Not to mention, it’s not healthy for your hair. Washing your hair everyday actually makes your hair greasier, because you’re stripping the oils from your scalp every time you wash it. So what’s a girl like me to do when I have greasy hair all the time? This is when I experimented with different spray, and powder, forms of dry shampoo on the market. These consisted of drugstore buys to more expensive alternatives like my favorite Acure Organics Dry Shampoo! There are a lot of dry shampoos out there today, but very few are actually green and natural. Most of the products are a chemical concoction of dangerous ingredients. The thought of putting that in my hair, or even near my scalp, made me sick. When I looked at the ingredients in Acure, there was nothing to worry about, and that’s why it is our number one pick here at the blog! Another great thing about this product is that is doesn’t have a heavy, perfumed, scent to it. It is also a powder rather than a spray. I prefer powder dry shampoos because it gives an instant volume boost and leaves your hair clean and fresh looking without the stickiness of spray dry shampoos. Every dry shampoo spray that I tried, actually did the opposite of making my hair clean. The spray made it look greasier, dirtier, and even gave my hair a crunchy texture! The only spray I was able to use was one from Suave, that gave my hair just the lift it needed! With the upcoming summer months, make sure to grab a dry shampoo that works best for your hair! Throw it in your weekend, or beach bag, and call it a day! Just like all of us need to relax a bit this summer, so does our hair! What’s your favorite dry shampoo?
