Always Time to Dry
Washing your hair frequently not only strips it of its natural oils, but also, the process can be quite time consuming. Sometimes we truly just don’t have time to wash our hair, and well, other times, we’re just too tired and lazy. Alas, no more fretting about that oily hair, which hasn’t been washed in 2 or 3 or 3.5 days. Dry shampoo has become a savior, and trust me, once you use it, there’s no going back. If you have long hair and a lot of it, shampooing, conditioning, brushing, drying, and even putting product in your mane so that you don’t have to blow dry it, all take time and effort, and sometimes or most of the time, you’re simply not up for it. When was the last time you discussed the joy and pleasure of hair maintenance with someone? Probably never… While I have never washed my hair every day, lately I had found myself dreading washing my hair and needed to know what I could do to eliminate the dread AND the washing. I had once heard that baby powder cured oily strands, but after doing some research, I found it to be a bad idea. Not only is baby powder made with talc, which many people are allergic to, but also, baby powder has the tendency to clog the hair shaft preventing growth and leading to build-up. After eliminating that idea, I ventured to Sephora and began browsing the hair section. Since I always opt for natural products–organic if possible–I was immediately drawn to Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo With Oat Extract (non-aerosol). While I had vaguely heard of dry shampoo, I had never thought much about it–I’m low-maintenance when it comes to hair and never ponder the idea of using any type of hair product. As I began reading the container, I was thrilled to find that the ingredients are as follows: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch (Oryza Sativa), Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Hectorite, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour (Avena Sativa), Kaolin, Silica, Cyclodextrin, Fragrance (Parfum). And while I stray from fragrances, the product is natural, and after smelling it, I realized the subtlety of the fragrance. I decided to try it, and now, I’m hooked. What more can one ask? It’s eco-friendly, inexpensive, it works amazingly well, bides you time until your next wash, and gives your strands a nice break from H2O. The next time you’re in a rush, you’re in a mode of lethargy, or you visited the gym on your lunch break and can’t wash your hair, you’ll be in pure luck with Klorane.
