It runs about 4$. I have also used Suave but don’t like it as much. I used to use Bumble and Bumble hair powder a few years back , because that was the only company that I knew made it. It was about 30$ a bottle and only lasted me a couple weeks. I have very fine blonde hair, so I wash my hair every 2 to 3 days to keep it fom over drying and breaking off. I not only use the hair powder to freshen up my hair and soak up some of the oil near my scalp, but I use it to add body to my hair. It also helps hold your hair in place, like a weak hairspray without using hair spray :) my opinion on the price difference between the Solon brand and store brand, is that it is not worth the money, and the store brand works just as well.

It has a cooling effect when sprayed on your scalp.

I do use dry shampoo and love it!— hair gets oily faster when shampoo contains sodium lauryl sulfate.. And other bad ingredients. It dries out your hair/scalp- making your scalp try to compensate by excess oil. That’s why people get oily/greasy hair fast- it’s usually their shampoo. I have really healthy hair! But it used to get so oily! It’s been about 6 months since I stopped using just any kind of shampoo, even designer shampoo, and have only used organic/all natural shampoo.. And I don’t have to wash my hair every day! About day 2 1/2 or 3 I’ll use dry shampoo. I’m excited to see about this cocoa powder though!

It always seems as if my best perfectly messy doos are accidental like right before a shower/bath when I’m not washing my hair. If I notice the accidentally greatness I spray it and leave it. The best advice you can get is if you ever get down time (I say ever because mine is rare), instead of poppin in a movie, checkin social metwork, textin, etc… grab some ponytail holders, hair pins, clips, etc and get infront of the mirror OR if ur on ur laptop often (like me) turn the camera on amd, instwad of takin pics) use it to watch yourself play with your hair…
Try several things, use inspiration from pinterest, look up YouTube tutorial s, read blogs, search images etc… every time u finish take a pic( which will assist in recreating later) find what works for you and ur hair, facial/bone structure, style etc. It can actually become as addictive as social networking lol… if u get frustrated or want advice, tips, suggestions e-mail me :)

Just sprinkle it onto your roots brush it out and use a blow dryer while bending over, it gets rid of the extra powder and gives the much needed fluff to your hair.

I have tried several and that’s the only one that works for me. It is literally my go to. If I don’t use it I have to wash my hair everyday and it gets oily half way through the day. It gives you so much body too. Amazing creation!

Also, Hempz has a great one that I have used a ton. No white residue

Like Batiste & Psst for curly hair (I bought it at a bump-and-dent store, so 75c= right choice! even if I have straight hair) –the best of the group. Tresemme’s is the cheapest I’ve tried, and is okay, but goes on quite wet and I never let it dry enough before I brush it out. Think I should give corn starch a try. Never quite happy with baby powder results…

She put some in an old salt shaker for convince (and asthetic) purposes

You can add some scented oil to it if the smell bothers you. The Google has precise measurements, if anyone is curious.

I prefer big sexy hair dry shampoo to the many others I have tried. Not having to wash my hair often means more early morning pancake making with my kidcubs.

It’s an extra 4-5 minutes in the shower to shampoo and condition. If I were to blow dry (not that good for the hair), it’s almost 15 minutes with the dryer. Air drying takes hours or all day if I pull it up… which I usually do. I can’t do that every day.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Dry shampoo would be the *perfect* baby shower present for an expectant mother. Give something small for the baby, dry shampoo for her. Thoughtful and so practical.

I just have the super (less than $5) cheap kind I picked up at target and it works great.

I recently read that putting it in before bed and thus sleeping on it, helps with the volume and texture and I have to say that I agree!

I really like Oscar Blandi. The tip is tapered for perfect application.

I know they market this for runners and such but I honestly feel like someone needs to market dry shampoo for Mothers. Now I only wash my hair twice a week with wet shampoo and use dry shampoo on the roots the other days. It has made my hair naturally more soft and not so frizzy. I wish I had known about this stuff in college…I can only imagine the time it would have saved me.
