Time for July’s best of beauty post! If you are a busy girl with little time to get ready, having to wash and style your hair everyday can be a pain. Take it from me, with long thick hair, it can take me up to an hour just to blow dry it. Thank the beauty gods for dry shampoo. Just a quick spray, comb through and I am out the door. But with all the brands on the market, which one should you buy? I am here to make your life easier. I have tried a variety of brands and rank them in the following order:
1. Aloxxi ColourCare– This dry shampoo is definitely my favorite. It sprays clear, leaves a lovely scent, and does not leave a funky white residue. It keeps my hair feeling fresh all day. I actually brought a bottle of this to New York Fashion Week with me last year and it was a lifesaver saving me a lot of time getting ready for different events. Great for color treated hair too. $19 (Right now on sale on Amazon.com for only $12.59!)
2. Klorane Extra Dry Shampoo – This version is for all you healthy nuts out there. Klorane contains oat extracts and is paraben and sulfate free. The reason it is second on my list is because it does not spray clear like Aloxxi. Other than that, it is still a great dry shampoo to invest in and leaves a light weight clean feeling. $18
3. Rene Furterer Naturia- Also sprays on white, but is fairly easy to brush out and return to your normal color. A bit heavier than the Klorane or Aloxxi products, but still a decent dry shampoo. The essential oils leave a nice smell to your hair. $24
4. TRESemme Fresh Start- Honestly I am disappointed in this product. It sprays on bright white so be prepared to spend a few minutes brushing it back to your normal hair color. It then leaves a dandruff like residue. Not worth the $5.99.
Baby powder also works as a decent dry shampoo, but be prepared to smell like a baby all day. Make sure to brush your hair thoroughly after applying to avoid having dust-colored hair. You can also add a bit of eye shadow to help the baby powder mesh with your hair color. Be warned, baby powder can leave a heavy residue in your hair and I would not suggest using it for more than a day.
