Hey guys it’s me again.
Hair products. That’s what this post is about, more specifically: dry shampoo. If we’re being completely honest, I’ve always just used whatever hair products happen to be in the shower when I get in it, putting basically no thought about what goes in to my hair. What else is a teenage boy supposed to do?
So until about two weeks ago, I had no idea what “dry shampoo” was. It sounds like an oxymoron, or some new-age term for a bar of soap. I’m sure plenty of you reading this already know what it is, but if not, let’s go on this journey together.
I’ve always had this issue where my hair is super oily, even the day after I take a shower. When I was younger (16-17) I couldn’t care less that my hair looked bad or that it felt weird, you’re lucky that I showered more than once a month. In my early 20s I learned that this isn’t okay (thank you, November). People actually do care what your hair looks like and if you look like a slob, people are judging you. This is fine when you’re in high school, everyone had their rough years, but you’re an adult now. If you’re trying to get a decent job or go to college, people are probably weirded out by the kid with the gross hair who looks like he hasn’t bathed in 3 months. End rant.
So while I was at Target November asked me to pick up two things of dry shampoo, one for her, and that I should get one for myself. She told me to get the Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo. It was only about $5 at Target and it seems to do what it’s advertised to do pretty well. Basically, if your hair is super oily (say you passed out at 8:00 PM because you were up until 4:00 AM the night before writing that paper that was due 3 days ago), but you don’t have time to take a shower, you can just spray this stuff on your hair and it soaks up all of the oil and makes your hair look brand new again.
So I did some research on dry shampoo and found that it’s basically a super fine powder that was designed to soak up all of the oil in your hair. You just spray it on and it completely takes away that greasy look. It’s kind of crazy how well it works, actually. Whenever I would not take a shower and end up with gross, greasy hair for the day, I would just deal with it. Now I don’t have to.
I’m probably not the most qualified to be reviewing this product since I know nothing about hair care, but sometimes it’s nice stepping out of your comfort zone and giving an unbiased opinion on something that you would have never purchased on your own, but end up loving.
