Anyone else’s hair cycle work like this?
Day One Hair = Gorgeous and fluffy.
Day Two Hair = Doing exactly what you want! Perfect.
Day Three Hair = Who dumped oil on my head? Ugh.
If you’re in the same boat as me when it comes to how quickly your hair can look oily, then I think I’m about to change your life. Ok, maybe I’m being a little over dramatic but this product makes me very excited to share with you.
I recently got my hands on the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo and it is a life changer. Dry shampoo as a whole is pretty new to my hair routine. I am not quite sure why I have never used it in the past, maybe I was afraid that I would do it wrong, but I assure you, it’s the easiest hair product I have used in a while. Dry Shampoo can help to extend an extra day between washes and from what I understand – that is not necessarily a bad thing to do. (so don’t feel dirty!)
I really can’t describe the scent of it other than it has a ‘clean’ smell. I have used some dry shampoos in the past that smell more like hairspray but this is light, airy, and just clean. It also takes no time to apply. You take sections of your hair and spray towards the root.
****Tip: Use sections that are near where you naturally part you hair since that is where I need it the most. Don’t feel like you have to spray down your entire head – focus on the areas that you style your hair into since it will most likely be the oiliest parts.
When you spray this dry shampoo it will come out looking a little matte white or gray in color. Don’t be alarmed – that is completely normal. Think of it as putting baby powder on your head (which is the old school way to do this anyways). You’re going to rub it into your scalp so all that color will no longer be visible. Once done, I typically like to run a brush back through it and then style accordingly for the day.
Bonus Tip: One thing that I do right before I use dry shampoo for oily hair is give my self a mini blowout. I use my hairdryer and a round brush to add some volume back to my hair and help dry out some of the natural oils on my scalp before spraying. I feel that it helps me with adding some volume back to my hair style especially if I am planning to wear it down after using the dry shampoo.
If you are new to using any dry shampoo in general, here are two other dry shampoo recommendations that I have tried that you can start with too!
Batiste Dry Shampoo // This is a great and affordable place to start. Honestly, this was the first dry shampoo brand that I tried and it was their tropical scent! Its under $10 and does the job very well. Now I have the classic clean – but if you are looking for many options in scents – this is the most extensive selection I have seen.
Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-powder Dry Shampoo // I had a sample size of this one and it worked just fine. After doing a little more research, it seems to be a better option if you have medium to thick hair instead of thin hair like mine. What’s great is that this has a UV protectant built into it so its a great alternative if you’re going to be out in the sunshine all day.
As you know, there are so many brands and types on the market – what is your favorite?
