Dry shampoo used to be an option many years back. It is a great way to extend your hair style between shampoos. Dry shampoo is coming back in fashion and it is about time. Styling your hair takes time and can be damaging to your hair. If you flat iron your hair it looks great until you have to wash it. Then the process of applying heat needs to be repeated again. This is all very time consuming and damaging to the hair.
Many women are not sold on the idea of paying $200 or more to get a Brazilian blowout at their salon which makes your hair smooth and silky even after washing it. If you don’t do a process like this, you probably rely on flat irons, heated rollers or blow drying in order to get the look that you want.
Dry shampoo to the rescue! You can flat iron your hair and add an extra day or even two before needing to shampoo it. Color-treated hair can also last longer by not shampooing as often.
Tresemme has a very affordable line of hair care products. From shampoos and conditioners to styling aids, their brand is good quality at a bargain price. When I saw that they had come out with their own line of dry shampoo products, I decided to give it a try.
The Tresemme Freshstart Waterless Foam Shampoo is for dry/curly to normal hair. The 6 ounce bottle cost $5.49 at my local chain drug store. The formula contains Witch Hazel, Citrus and Aloe Vera. It says that it refreshes your hair by removing excess oil, impurities and odor. It also moisturizes and lifts limp and dull hair to make it look freshly washed.
The instructions seemed easy enough and my hair (washed 2 days prior) was ready for the test. The first step was to pump the product 2 to 3 times depending on the length of your hair. Mine is shoulder-length but thick. With 3 pumps I had a decent enough of mousse-like product in the palm of my hand to start with. The citrusy smell was very pleasant.
I spread the product through my hair and then gently rubbed it in with a towel. I brushed my hair into place and immediately felt a slight tingling sensation on my scalp. My hair does look refreshed. I normally have the kind of hair that needs frizz control but today the dry shampoo worked well without it. The instructions say that you may need to use a frizz control product after the dry shampoo.
Tresemme also makes a refreshing mist for additional odor reduction and shine. I have not tried this product yet but I am going to pick it up. A refreshing mist is great for someone who is a smoker or may be around smokers.
Am I sold on dry shampoo? Yes. This is a great product for someone like myself who doesn’t want to shampoo her hair every day with water. This product can help your hair color last longer, cut back on the damage you do to your hair from heat-styling and save you valuable time in the morning. It is a must for those mornings where you need to wash your hair but you just don’t have the time.
The price is affordable and with an appealing scent, having dry shampoo on hand will help to make bad hair days a thing of the past.
