Oily hair season is here again. I have some seriously curly hair (read: dry with a tendency to frizz) and it protests being washed. So, I have to deal with a sweaty, product ridden scalp for most of my week.
I find myself planning my hair wash days around the events of the week, and prioritizing my activities based on clean hair. I have used baby powder in my hair for years to mask the greasy roots and give my hair the volume it lacks after a couple of days of non washing.
I recently started experimenting with dry shampoo, and have really loved what I'm seeing. There are some that are leaps and bounds above others, and I have found one brand in particular that not only controls the oil, but builds volume and adds a touch of shine. There is no George Washington-esque white tint and the smell is heavenly. It smells nothing like a baby's bottom, or really any powder at all. It has a fresh, almost fruity smell that even got Micah sniffing my head.
With disturbing frequency actually.
It's Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo! It runs around $3-$4 in most drugstores, and is really the best low cost version out there that I've tried. It's light, smells gorgeous, and really builds volume and leaves my roots soft.
I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a light, great smelling dry shampoo that really leaves the hair feeling a bit cleaner.
