Dry Shampoos

I saw this article in the Globe and Mail recently and it got me to thinking. I have tried going without washing my hair before but I can never go longer than 24 hours without wanting to pull my hair out. My hair is on the thin side and gets a little oily during the day and night, so I always wash it in the morning. It gives it whatever volume it can muster, shine and it feels nice to have on my head! But apparently your hair gets better when you don't wash it every day? I don't know if I can do it! I've tried dry shampoo and baby powder and while that helps the oily appearance at my roots and gives it some bounce, I can't shake (literally), the heavy, almost crawly feeling on my scalp. It FEELS dirty.

Does anyone else have this same problem? Does anyone out there have amazing hair because they don't wash it? Who has a dry shampoo that does the trick for them? Tell me! Help me!



  1. I also have fine/thin hair - and while I don't know about Baby Power, I use Corn Starch to deal with oil. I sometimes spray a bit of vinegar to freshen things up. For the past 6 months I've only washed it once or twice a week, at the most. I feel it's fuller when I don't wash daily and my scalp is much less dry. I've tried the dry shampoo from Pantene, but it's just denatured Alcohol and very drying. The Corn Starch seems to do the trick for me.

  2. Klorane is best IMHO. Batiste is a close second, moreso because it smells nicer... but doesn't perform quite as well. A MUST for any girl with a fringe!!
