We all know going more days between washings is better for our hair. Less heat means less stress and healthier looking hair. For me, it's just pure laziness. Just keeping it real. Drying and styling my hair takes up the most time during my routine. It's exhausting. If I can get away with a few days in between, I'm all about it. Plus, on the days I don't wash my hair, it gives me a few extra minutes in the mornings. Who doesn't love that?
I've found dry shampoo is critical for extending styles between washings. I've tried several brands over the years--remember this post and this post? And I'm always searching for the next best thing when it comes to dry shampoo (and mascara for that matter!).
I recently tried this dry shampoo by MoroccanOil and I'm pretty much convinced it's the best dry shampoo out there. So you're probably thinking... what makes this dry shampoo different?
Well, many things set this product apart. First of all, it's UV-protecting. That's always a plus, right? Secondly, it utilizes ultra fine rice starches to absorb oil, buildup and oder. What does that mean? Less chemicals. And to top it off, it smells wonderful. If you're familiar with the MoroccanOil brand, you'll be delighted to know this dry shampoo is scented with the brand's signature scent. It's a nice subtle fragrance. Another thing I really like is it comes in two colors--light and dark. No chalky white residue!
If you're on the fence, I recommend starting with the travel size. It's not much of an investment (10 bucks) and you don't have to use as much of this one meaning the travel size will last longer than you think.
Not feeling a premium brand? This drugstore/Ulta option is still one of my favorites, too. See full review here.
