We all do our best to wake up with plenty of time to groom ourselves in the morning, but every so often, you just can’t drag yourself out of bed. Before you know it, you’re rushing to get to class on time – at this point, appearance isn’t of great importance. Sometimes, it’s late enough that you aren’t able to hop in the shower, wash your hair, and finish the rest of your morning routine. But with the appearance of more and more dry shampoos and conditioners, this can all change.
Even if you wake up too late to give your hair a full-on lather, various companies offer hair-cleaning solutions that don’t require the use of water. The products promise to get rid of oil and smell, without leaving residue. Just sprinkle some of the powder on your hair, leave it on for a few minutes, comb it out, and you’re done.
If you’ve never tried dry shampoo before and want to test it out at an affordable price, try the new Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo. They offer different types of dry shampoo for different hair types, so whether you’re curly, straight, thick, or thin, one of their products will work for you. Plus, they come in foam and mist as well as powder, so you can pick which kind suits you best! They’re also infused with citrus, so your hair will smell as great as if you’d taken a shower.
For those more adventurous with their hair care, there are a lot of companies that make organic beauty products, including dry shampoo. Frederic Fekkai released a dry shampoo consisting of only natural ingredients in 2009. The popular line is carried by Sephora and other beauty retailers. Anthropologie also carries a unique brand of dry shampoo called skinnyskinny (featured in the January 2011 issue of Nylon Magazine). Skinnyskinny shampoos are also composed of all-natural ingredients, and they offer a variety of unique scents, some of which include jasmine, grapefruit, and lavender. But at $32 a bottle, make sure you’ll actually use dry shampoo before investing in it!
Don’t let oversleeping be an excuse for not looking your best. Use dry shampoo on those late mornings, and no one else will ever be the wiser.
