Dry Shampoo – A Gift From The Hair Gods


I don’t think there is a woman out there that can’t relate to the above statement.

I would like to meet the creator of dry shampoo. For it is SHE who gives me the gift of extra sleep each morning. That, and the corporate appeal I use to wear.

I still love the dry shampoo…..the out-dated office attire I use to wear everyday, not so much.

But I’m not here to talk about blouses and extra sleep!

My hair is mid-length and somewhat thick. (shout out to Katie at Tranquility in Lincoln (NE) for keeping my mane lookin’ fresh). So washing it every single day isn’t something I like to do, nor have the time for.

On the flip side of no washing it daily, I also like for those who I come face to face with able to see their own face in the reflection of my greasy hair. Gross right? But it’s a fact. Thank god I have trained my hair to go 3 days without washing it. Sometimes even 4…..hell who am I kidding I have gone 5 WHOLE DAYS without a wash.

I think at this point it is important to clarify, I do bath daily. I swear really I’m not THAT lazy….or gross.

Moving on.

So in an effort to avoid that shine…..enter dry shampoo. I have experimented with many different brands and I have found that these two work the best for me.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

phd-dry-shampoo-pdp-topOut of the two I am going to talk about, this one is my favorite. One thing about dry shampoo that I absolutely hate is the white powdery residue it can sometimes leave behind. Living Proof’s shampoo does not do that…at all. Because of this, it is good for all hair colors.  It is lightweight and fool proof to use. I spray it on sections of my hair and let it sit for just a minute or so and then shake out and style per usual! I promise if you give this a try you won’t be disappointed.

Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Shampoo

(Second to Katie….she is at Tranquility…in Lincoln…did I mention that…oh I did, well she is amazeballs so she gets another shout out…rambling..me?? Nope.) Find her on Instagram and follow her. I found her because as you all know (or not, probably not) I am a fan of Lauren Conrad from The Hills and she has been her long time hair guru. So OBVIOUSLY when I was at Target and saw she has created a line of hair care products, one of which is dry shampoo I HAD TO try it!

I must admit I bought this more for the name than the quality.

But I was pleasantly surprised at how much I did liked it! It does have similar qualities as Living Proof but did leave behind a bit of the white residue. But if you are wanting to try dry shampoo for the first time, but do not want to spend a lot of money, this would be a good one to try out.

So there you have it. My favorite picks for dry shampoo. So save yourself some sleep in the morning and go grab some. You won’t regret it!
