Messy hair don’t care? Or do we??? I mean, you hear all these different terms that have become synonymous with motherhood…yoga pants, soccer mom, mini vans, wine, messy bun. We laugh about them and even embrace them some of the time because they are fairly accurate depictions of how life as a mom can be. And don’t get me wrong, I rock yoga pants and a messy bun as much as the next woman. But what about the days when I want to wear my hair down but it’s just a little too greasy to be acceptable? Does this mean I’ll have to throw my hair up, yet again, in the messy mom bun *gasp*. Well, I guess not anymore! I was a little late to the dry shampoo party and now I’m making up for lost time. It’s like when I discovered sour cream for the first time at 27 and put it on top of everything for the next year.
Once you’ve jumped on the dry shampoo band wagon it is easy to be overwhelmed by choices. I’ve seen it ranging in price from $3-$50 and in a variety of scents, colors, and textures. You pretty much just have to try them out until you find one that works for you. Well, I found one that works for me and so I’m going to be reviewing it today so that you can determine if it would maybe work for you as well. It’s Batiste Dry Shampoo and it is definitely in the affordable category as far as dry shampoos go.

Tips on how to best use dry shampoo:
-Don’t waste it by arbitrarily spraying it all over your hair. Part you hair onto one side and spray it into the roots. Then part on the other side and spray into those roots. You will see where your hair looks greasy so basically spray it into the roots in those areas.
-After it’s applied you will want to let it set on the hair for 5-10 minutes before you mess with it. You will see how it soaks up the grease.
-I like to use my fingers and just sort of rub the scalp to spread it around and get rid of an excess dry shampoo.I also finds that this helps to sort of fluff the hair up and add volume. Some people would rather use and brush and this is what the instructions say as well. A bristle brush is often referred to as the best brush to use with dry shampoo.
-After you have applied the amount you need and its been brushed or rubbed through, you shouldn’t run your fingers through your hair too much after that. It will cause it to be greasy again.
-If you accidentally spray too much into your hair, don’t mess with. If you use a blow dryer it will help to remove some of the excess dry shampoo.
Here are my Pros and Cons
-Dirty hair? No problem, this is now one of the easiest things to fix in my life. Clean and volumized hair for everyone!
-The aerosol spray that comes out can be a little overwhelming so use in a well ventilated area
-If you use any of the brown tinted products just beware that they can come off on your hands, clothes, sheets, etc.
Dry shampoo is a necessity in my life. I do remember the good ole’ days when my hair was never gross, but alas, those days are long gone. I have high hopes that my 40’s will be the time in my life where I’ll have clean hair and nicely manicured nails again. Until then there will always be a couple of bottles of dry shampoo on my counter. So if you’re over visiting and your hair is loosing it’s luster, I got you, boo.
