Dry shampoo to the rescue

I have very thin hair and it gets greasy very fast. I have to wash my hair everyday, especially if I have worked out during the day. My hair looks so terrible if it is left unwashed. Unfortunately, I have been hearing so many things about how it isn’t good for your hair to be washed every day. I totally believe it. Although it makes my hair clean and smooth, all the chemicals can’t be that great for my hair.

So anyway, I am trying out something new with my hair. I took a trip into Lush to learn more about what to do. After talking to the employees, I came out with one bottle of lemon scented dry shampoo, a bottle of regular shampoo specially for greasy hair and some conditioner. They say to try every other day washing my hair with regular shampoo and then the other day “washing” with dry shampoo. It’s not really washing though as it’s more like combing. You put the dry shampoo onto dry hair and rub it in with your hands. Then just comb out any loose powder and you’re good to go.

I have already done two rounds of dry shampoo and I will do my third tonight. So far my hair has been extremely greasy. Ugh, I hate it. But I am determined to try it out for at least a week. My co-worker, who also uses dry shampoo, told me that my hair will be stupidly greasy for about a week and then it will start getting used to the treatment.

So here’s hoping that this new dry shampoo endeavour works out for me.

    In my early years of high school/sort of high school, a few people I knew suggested dry shampoo. I hope it works out well for you, because I could never actually fully understand the whole concept around it and why/how it could ever actually work. P:

    My hair is the opposite—instead of really greasy it’s really dry. So I actually only wash my hair once a week, and I use a TON of conditioner in the shower and leave it in the whole time (twisted up into a bun on top of my head while I wash the rest of me and shave etc) and then when I get out of the shower I put a leave-in conditioner in my hair and a non-drying styling cream and I’m good to go. Other days, when I don’t wash my hair, I just wear a shower cap.

    You and I sound like we have similar hair types. Mine is very limp, thin and fine. It gets greasy super easily and it doesn’t hold a perm or curl at all. It’s stupid. D: I need to check out dry shampoo, honestly, I have been meaning to for ages. I can’t afford a LUSH brand though so I will pick up something cheaper at the drugstore. 🙂

    I’m curious to see how it works out for you. Does the dry shampoo work after a workout? I always feel so disgusting, I can’t imagine ti getting the job done.

      No, it really doesn’t work after a work out. My hairs seems to be so much greasier 🙁
