Dry Shampoo

With the summer here, and running from work to the beach or a party with barely time in between to get home and shower. Or when you are trying to preserve a coloring, perm or straightening.. Dry shampoo is a good way to keep your hair clean without over shampooing. (a real shampooing every other to ever 2 days is better for your hair.)

*all links are to amazon for your ordering convenience (unless otherwise noted) as well so you can see other versions.

Years ago I came across Batiste Dry shampoo which was a spray. I can’t remember where i purchased it or how I found out about it but its great for after the beach, work day, workout and so on. I even keep it in my overnight bag for when I stay over someone’s house. (I have long hair, I don’t want to clog up their drain.)

Oh yeah and now, there’s a variety of scents to choose from. I’ll have to see if I can find the tropical one.

Here’s the regular size 6.73 oz can  &

a pack of 3 travel (purse) size 

 

 

 

 

While once the one type (out of the UK) was good, you can’t keep others fingers out of the cookie jar. Other companies jumped on the bandwagon with not just sprays but Mists, foams, powders and sheets.

All four of those types are used for different hair types.

Powder – nonaerosol powders typically have larger particles and therefore thicken better than mists.

In case it is not..  There’s Drop Dead Gorgeous Shampoo for brunettes and blondes.

 

Spread it evenly  through your hair with a Scalpmaster Shampoo Brush.

I’ve been using these brushes for everything for years, and my cat loves them too! She brushes herself with my old one. Shampooing, conditioning and dry shampoo. Even getting an even amount of product (hairspray or gel depending on the style.)

So I came across this on Pinterest  and there are a few things I think I’m going to have to change for my version when I write it up. (Which I may do in my 2018 BUJO. Some I will use others I don’t really need to follow liek the make-up brushes, I don’t use make up often let alone aside from some chapstick or gloss I don’t use it in the summer (rarely, I will put a smudge of eyeshadow)

Exfoliate I would say is best every other day and if you have sensitive skin 2x a week. Although if you are a tanning buff like me (i do use 100SPF but I tan fast as well!) I would exfoliate everyday (or night before) especially your legs BEFORE you shave with a pumice stone or preferably a Loofa  (and no its not the shower Poofs…  They make them for your face too!)

go in the sun and use some baby oil while you still have water dripping on you. You nor a boyfriend or Husband will be able to keep yourself from ‘petting’ your silky legs. And it won’t burn you that way you still get the tanning effect from the baby oil but you will have your sun block over it so you won’t get burned.

weekly Exercise? Thought that was supposed to mostly be a daily thing!!?!?! Though I really hear every other day

I’ve read once a month is fine for cleaning your make up brushes, but then I guess that depends on all the different colors etc you use.

‘grooming eyebrows’ should be bi weekly not monthly especially if this ‘grooming’ means waxing or tweezing. Don’t forget if you get your eyebrows professionally waxed, that you can go a month without having to go back if you maintain it. After a week or even a few days check to see if any hairs have emerged and tweeze those buggers out! This way you stay polished looking and don’t have to pay whatever it is every other week. (or even cheaper, DIY! My Wax cost me no more than $10 and it takes a lot less time than even if you have an appointment you sometimes have to wait… then go through it… it takes me no longer than 5 minutes to do my own.

 

You should condition your hair weekly and month should be a deep condition or hot oil treatment (especially if you have split ends) If you use product in your hair, blow dry it even in summer, or or is just naturally dry and strawlike… you will want to use conditioner every other wash, and once a week use a deep moisturizing conditioner. (and may I suggest a leave-in conditioner.)  also if you have naturally dry hair.. instead of every day (which is what is drying it out… try every other to day or more… say you last washed your hair on Sunday.. wash it on Tuesday night or wait til Wednesday. This way the natural oils can seep into the hair to smooth the follicle as well as you won’t get split ends much. And if During the summer use a little conditioner and sunblock mixed to smooth on the ends of your hair and your scalp. (this way your head won’t get burned nor your hair fried!
