Hair Freshener

Standard

I’ve been wanting to try dry shampoo forever, but I heard so many negative things {like it turns your hair white or leaves behind residue} that I put it on the back burner. Now, since I’ve lightened my hair, frequent and damaging hair washing is out of the question, so I finally decided to give dry shampoo a go. Yesterday, while out gallivanting at Wal Mart, I headed to the hair products aisle and spotted got 2b rockin’ it encore fresh dry shampoo. It was less than $4, so obviously this was my choice for my first product test. I typically like to test out hair products when I have no immediate plans so, JUST in case it goes horribly wrong, I have time to tackle my mane. Last night I happened to have dinner plans, and my day of running errands ran VERY late leaving me ZERO time to wash and restyle my hair. I had no choice but to blindly use my just purchased dry shampoo, and luckily – SUCCESS! It worked like a charm leaving my hair feeling, smelling, and looking fresh.

There are a few things you should know before dabbling in dry shampoo. First thing’s first here; although I found this very effective, it is NOT a miracle worker, so make sure your expectations are realistic. This product will help you “skip a day of shampooing”. Although a brilliant substitution, you will not achieve the same result as actually washing your hair. If you have super thin and oily hair, dry shampoo’s may not be the answer. I have VERY thick, light brown hair. I usually skip a day or two of washing anyway, so this product is perfect for me in that I don’t need a ton of assistance skipping a day or two.

Secondly, read and follow the instructions. This product is in aerosol form and comes out in short, fast bursts, so make sure you point and aim before you shoot! Sparingly apply at the root in small sections and let it sit for a few minutes. It comes out powdery white, but don’t be alarmed! Just rub it in with your fingertips, and then brush it out and it disappears. If it doesn’t disappear, you probably used too much. That’s why I said sparingly…you can always add more if needed, but if you add too much too start you’ll be left with a greyish tint {practice makes perfect…don’t be discouraged if you eff it up the first time}.

Lastly, keep it simple sister! I’ve watched several video tutorials for this product where women did extras, like leaving it in for 20+ minutes and/or blow drying the product. These extra steps are not necessary. These type of products are meant to be quick-fix solutions and to help avoid damage, so these extra steps pretty much defeat the purpose of the product itself.

All in all, this product gets a solid 2 thumbs up from me, so here’s hoping that if you decide to try it that you have the same success with it!
