Having a bad hair day?
We’ve all had those mornings where you’re running around getting a million different things done and feeling like a chicken with their head cut off. At lunchtime, you realize you haven’t even had a chance to rinse off, let alone wash your hair!
Dry shampoo has quickly become a staple for many parents who find themselves short on time. Experts like Huffington Post and CNN agree that it is a beauty staple that can help salon-styled hair last for days.
With so many options available, it can be confusing to know what to look for in a dry shampoo. Reviews.com has recently released their guide to choosing the best formula for you. They spent six weeks analyzing 54 different formulas to determine what the most important factors are.
Avoid dry shampoos that leave an unpleasant residue on your hair, which can make it feel even dirtier. For those of us with dark hair, it’s important to find a formula that doesn’t leave a visible residue either.
While smell is a personal preference, formulas with strong odors can be overwhelming to sensitive noses and linger in the air.
Spending money to get a quality product is important, and we certainly want the most bang for our buck. However, finding something that fits within your budget is essential to making sure you can continue to feel comfortable purchasing dry shampoo.
Reviews.com put different formulas to the test to analyze how well they actually worked on dirty hair. Some dry shampoos don’t absorb oil as efficiently as we’d like, causing us to have to apply and re-apply and re-apply to maintain the clean look of our hair.
Of course, dry shampoo works best when it’s applied properly. Be sure to spray from 6-10 inches away, blend it in with your hands, and then allow time for it to dry and settle before styling!
