N&J Product Testing: Top 5 Dry Shampoos For Girls On The Go!


Summer is all about simplicity; easy living, staying cool, out the door, off to the beach and…not washing your hair? Yes! Ladies get yourself a shower cap because the miracle that is dry shampoo is exactly what you need to stay care-free and keep your hair salon-fresh during this season’s heat waves.
Exactly what is dry shampoo – and why is this concept not gross? Hair experts have been telling us forever that washing your locks every day isn’t a good thing. It strips hair of natural oils that keep it shiny and can bring on the dreaded split-end. Not only that, but stylists rave about the body and workability of “day old” hair. My response would be: “But my hair gets greasy!” In comes dry shampoo!
Basically each brand has a similar main ingredient which absorbs excess oils – a waterless way to freshen and restyle your hair when you can’t (or don’t want to) use regular shampoo. What does this mean in real life? The amazing blowout you got on Friday can now last until Monday! It’s also perfect for those mornings you’re running late, traveling, to stick in your gym bag, for busy moms, and even to add mega body to already washed hair! Now the only question is which one should you use? I’ve done the research for you, and these are the best five on the shelves!

This Allure Beauty Award Winner has a unique natural formula that absorbs impurities and oil in the hair without the use of parabens, sulfates, petro-chemicals, phthalates or triclosan.

If you think more expensive means better quality, let me change your mind! This dry shampoo has a light tropical scent, cleanses hair with mineral clay, and is a major value. It also gives lift and texture without any residue. (Suave Dry Shampoo Spray, $3.00-$5.00, www.suave.com)
