So I've decided to post tips twice a week, on Monday and on Thursday. And if I happen to miss one day please forgive me and I promise to get something up quickly. I'll still tell my stories -- wait till you hear about my recent move, it's a doosey -- but this way I can share some fun finds with you.
What I would like to highlight today is TRESemme Dry Shampoo. Some people think it's disgusting to not wash your hair every day, but girls -- and Kody from "Sister Wives" --, it's a proven fact that washing every day dries out and weakens your hair. Your natural oils are a wonderful conditioner, which is why Marsha Brady brushed her hair a hundred times every night.
As a wavy-hair girl, I haven't washed my hair every day since high school when I began working at a salon and the stylists taught me how to work with my loose curls instead of straightening them every day. I soon learned I only needed to wash my hair every 2-3 days. For me, the problems with infrequent washing are flakes, oily feeling around my hairline, and oily hair smell.
So I was shocked when my new roomie told me she washes her hair even less than I do -- only twice a week. She uses a dry shampoo, and I'm not even kidding, her hair has incredible bounce and not a hint of grease in it every single day. Except her brand is way expensive, and I was still skeptical about it after Heidi Montag's stint in "I'm A Celebrity! Get Me Out of Here!" She swore by her dry shampoo and it was NOT doing amazing things for her hair.
AKA Why I Will Never Get Plastic Surgery
A few days ago when I saw an ad for TRESemme I figured I should give it a shot since it was around $5. I last washed my hair on Sunday evening, so I should have washed it on Tuesday. Instead, Wednesday morning I sprayed the dry shampoo on my roots and all over my hair to make it smell fresh. The mist turned into a powder that must have soaked up the oil, because two minutes later when I brushed it out, the powder disappeared and my hair looked fresh.
The fancy brand may be better, but for now I am quite pleased with the results.
Now somebody please send Heidi a bottle.
