I don’t know how my friends who only wash their hair 1-2 times a week do it. Maybe it’s because I have thin hair, which tends to need to be washed more often than thick/curly hair, but I can’t go more than a day without at the very least conditioning. Last week however was one of those horrible, stressful, headache-inducing days and I went two days without washing my hair and then went to the gym. I came home and was running so late to a lunch that while I had time to shower, I didn’t have time to wash my hair – gross, I know (and this was after a spin class!). My hair was insanely greasy so in panic I grabbed a bottle of Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo ($19). I don’t use dry shampoo because I always worry that it will look like I have dandruff, but this bottle was laying around from an event gift bag and I thought dandruff is better than looking dirty!
To my surprise because I needed so little of the dry shampoo it actually didn’t leave any residue and completely rid my hair of that unwashed, greasy look and feel. I wish my hair’s natural oils looked better on me, but they don’t and when in a pinch this is a miracle worker. I should add though that I have dirty blonde hair. When Beauty Snob Kelly gave this dry shampoo a try she did see residue on her hair/scalp, so be a bit cautious if you have dark hair and remember that a little of this product goes a long way.
