I also know this to be true: A LOT of women admit to this. We all hate washing our hair because it is so much work! All the products and the washing and towel-drying and detangling and the combing and drying and curling/straightening. It's a process. It's one I try to avoid or do as little as possible.
But there's this one little problem...my hair gets greasy. It can have all the curls and body on the bottom but up by my very outgrown roots the oil builds and makes my dark roots appear even darker. When my hair reaches this point I have two options: 1) wash it, or 2) top knot/bun and attempt to hide it one more day.
Except for this one great thing: dry shampoo.
Before I started switching to all safe products I was all about my dry shampoos, but I was on a continuous search for one I loved. There are a lot of safe ones out there, but I kept noticing common ingredients in the safe ones like corn starch or brown rice flour. One lazy morning I REALLY didnt want to wash my hair so I thought, "you know what? I have corn starch in my kitchen...it's worth a shot." So I put corn starch in my hair.
And you know what? It works. It's not perfect. It requires some rubbing in since, well, it's white and my hair is not. It sometimes gets in my fingernails if I scratch my scalp. It doesn't necessarily give my hair body but it takes away the oiliness by my roots which naturally makes it look a tad more voluminous. Like I said, it's not perfect. But, it's cheap. You already have it in your cabinet at home. You're welcome. I might have just saved you $15-$20.
So if you're on the hunt for a dry shampoo, and you don't want to spend a lot? Give it a whirl.
If you do want to spend some money, however, or if it doesn't work for you, here's one I want to try from a company in Canada. I have yet to buy it but I'll probably give in at some point. You can let me know how it is if you should cave before me.
