Review Wednesday: Dry shampoo 2

I have mentioned numerous times that I don’t wash my hair every day. It’s not as gross as you think. Really.

It’s really bad for your hair and scalp to wash it every single day.

Because I don’t wash my hair every day in order to keep my hair looking fresh and clean I use dry shampoos. There are a variety of them out there.

And I like to find different dry shampoos to use, just like with regular shampoo, I switch around.

A Review Wednesday I did in May was on a variety of dry shampoos.

After that review came out friends introduced me to even more dry shampoos with some donations and suggestions on purchase.

I have tried all four pictured and am ready to review them for you.

Just a reminder that if you ever want Go Fit Girl! to review something I am happy to take donations and try a variety of things.

Friends of Go Fit Girl! have given me onion goggles, reusable washable produce bags and dry shampoo.

I will review this in order of least favorite to favorite.

Psssst! The True Original: It was hard for me to get over … Continue reading

Review Wednesday: Dry shampoo

I have talked in the past about how I don’t wash my hair every day.

Washing my hair is quite a chore. Plus washing your hair every day is so bad for you hair and scalp.

But this post isn’t about why you should or shouldn’t wash your hair every single day.

Today I am reviewing dry shampoo. And not just one or two. I am reviewing five different brands.

Worst to best:

Bumble and Bumble: The concept of this dry shampoo makes sense. Too bad in reality it doesn’t

work and is quite messy.

B&B colors their dry shampoos for blondes, brunettes, red heads and those with black hair.

When I used this dry shampoo the brown spray got everywhere. There were brown dots on my face, hands, all over the sink counter.

I was always worried that when I sweated at the gym I would have brown running down the side of my face. That never happened. But when I dabbed the sweat on my hairline my towel turned brown.

The product was sticky and messy. But at least there wasn’t a smell.

Tresemme: I tried two versions of this brand of “dry” shampoo. … Continue reading

Review Wednesday: The Tye

The tye.

I first discovered this hair tie at my regular yoga studio, Namaste.

They come in fun colors and are inexpensive.

I have a lot of hair and the tie holds it pretty well.

During any sort of yoga class, hatha or even during an aggressive yoga class it stays in place. In a more active cardio class I had to repony tail it up. But to be fair I have to do that with my regular black hair bands.

I was told by someone who has thinner, finer hair that it works well for that type of hair as well.

While not wearing it in the hair you can wear it around your wrist and looks like a fun bracelet.

After wearing the tye in all of my hair I can put it on my wrist and soon after it goes back to almost its original size.

I pretty much always have hair ties with me. I have so much hair and there are times I need to just get it out of my face.

Along with the black hair ties around my wrist you will sometimes find the tye around my wrist as well.

These would … Continue reading

Sharing dry shampoo secret

I have written in the past about how I don’t wash my hair every day. It’s not good for my hair or scalp. It has been more than two years since I have stopped washing my hair every single day.

I wash my hair two to three times a week. It seems to be just right for my hair and scalp, which is what this NPR article mentions.

I have noticed that my hair doesn’t get quite as greasy as it used to.

But when it does, or my hair needs a little freshening I use TIGI’s Rockaholic Dirty Secret Shampoo. It absorbs grease and gives hair a clean smell.

While in Vegas this weekend we hung out a lot at Elllis Island Casino, which is a little more divey than casinos on The Strip. And the air quality is not quite as good either. The food is cheap as is the great tasting home-brewed beer … but the nasty cigarette smoke lingers. Bleh!

I should have brought Febreze with us, but that thought never entered my mind until we reeked of cigarette smoke. I thought since the dry shampoo gets my hair smelling fresh, … Continue reading
