Tuesday Tip – Dry Shampoo

Tuesday Tip – Issue 8 – Dry Shampoo

Last weekend was a long one but also happened to be an extremely busy one.  I had booked myself on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night and hence didn’t have time for some hair TLC until Saturday. I don’t like washing my hair more than twice a week but multiple night-outs leave my hair looking greasy and smelling of acrid cigarette smoke. So what to do?

Stock up on dry shampoo! Think of dry shampoo as a deodorant for your hair.  Flip your hair over and spray liberally.  Let it settle for a few minutes then brush out any residue with a natural bristle brush.  Your hair will look freshly washed with all signs of oil residue gone leaving behind a light, fresh scent.  It will take a few tries before you figure out how much is “just enough” for your hair type.

I’ve tried a few different brands of dry shampoo.  Ojon comes highly recommended but didn’t work too well for me, so I prefer Boots Expert Dry Shampoo, which is easily available in Dubai. Although, In a pinch regular old baby powder will also work.

Just a heads-up, don’t let dry shampoo replace your regular shampoo/conditioning routine since you still need to ensure you properly cleanse your scalp. Think of this as an emergency back-up.

    You are the third person to recommend the dry shampoo from Boots. The last time I was there, it wasn’t available (“out of stock”). I have one from Frederick Fekkai but that isn’t helping much although it’s supposed to be fab!

      I think dry shampoo works for some and doesn’t work for others. I like it as a refresher to keep my blow dry going a few extra days and give me a little more volume. I like Boots because it is cheap and gets the job done.

    I have definitely gotta give this a go !!! I dont like washing my hair too many times in a week either and have tried the baby powder trick when my hair smells after I’ve done something like fry chicken.

    Nice blog by the way !!!
