My Favorite Things: Suave Dry Shampoo

I'm one of those lucky girls who must wash her hair every day. In fact, sometimes, by the end of the day, things are already headed downhill. The bright side of my hair is that it's literally wash-and-wear. And it's a good thing, since I have to do it every day.

Or at least... I used to! I heard of the miracle of dry shampoo several months ago, and subsequently tried every kind I could — from the Tre Semme kind, to Pssst, to some expensive (in my world) $12-for-a-tiny-bottle kind. I didn't really like any of them. In fact, I thought baby powder was better. But I have dark hair, so that's not really an option.

And then, Suave changed my life. For $2.84, I can now have fresh-feeling and clean-looking "second-day hair." I had always seen in all these hair tutorials, "This works better with second-day hair," and thought, Are you for real?? But I LOVE this stuff! In fact, for my limp, flat hair, it has a second amazing benefit — I put it in my clean hair, and it gives me great texture and volume. And doing it that way also makes it so it never looks dirty in the first place, rather than fixing it after the fact.

It does do the thing that a lot of them do where it looks light and ashy for a few minutes, but it goes away quickly as you brush it. I've also found that another quick hit with the blow dryer takes care of it completely.

So if you are in my club, go give it a try!

  1. I am definitely in the "wash your hair everyday" club. :-/ I really want to try this! Thanks for the tip!

  2. Thankfully, I don't have to wash my hair every day, but I recently discovered dry shampoo as well and it's great for a second (or third, don't tell) day freshen-up. I'm happy to know there's a cheap one. Mine came "free" with shampoo and conditioner I bought at the salon, but I don't think I'd pay for it out right.
