No time to wash greasy locks? Stretch unwashed hair another day with these products.
Dry shampoo is the ultimate solution to sorting out oily locks first thing in the morning. Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo refreshes, revives, and rejuvenates your hair, no water or blow-dryer required. The easy-to-use spray application soaks up oil and removes product buildup. Most importantly it boosts volume, flat hair being the telltale sign it needs a wash. The product’s lemon verbena scent is the final deceiver, giving your hair that freshly shampooed smell.
In addition to dry shampoos there are an assortment of “hair powders” on the market. Ditch their hefty price tag for some good old-fashioned baby powder instead. The drying action of baby powder soaks up excess oil and can even appear to temporarily lighten roots between color appointments. The soft talcum smell will also give your hair a pleasant gentle aroma.
This may strike you as strange, but perfume’s alcohol content makes it a great last-minute solution. Just like dry shampoo and powder, alcohol will absorb the grease that makes hair appear dirty. Spritz your roots with your favorite scent, holding the bottle approximately 2-3 inches away from your head. Because alcohol can strip your hair of its natural oils with prolonged use, be sure to use this method sparingly and mainly for those desperate, overslept, Monday mornings.
