Pssst! I love you!

I used to bitch about dry shampoo. The can ran out too fast, it was too expensive, it left my hair feeling all weird…I could go on! That was until I spotted this retro lookin’ sonofagun on the shelf.

Psssssst is absolutely brilliant. I actually got more out of this than I did others I’ve tried (SORRY OSCAR!!!). That’s right, Pssssssters, you’ve knocked my Oscar Blandi to the back of my hair product cabinet. Not only is this a great dry shampoo, but it’s a very effective root booster as well! I was feeling pretty oily this weekend so I sprayed it all around my head on the roots. I flipped my hair over, looked up, and guess who looked like she partook in a discreet roll in the hay? THIS GIRL!

Oops, sorry. My subconscious added this picture in for some reason.

It also has a strangely comforting smell. Like your friend’s mom or a kickass teacher’s classroom. Weird, I know, but you’ll kind of just have to believe me. Also available: instant dry shampoo for wavy and curly hair. It’s a great refresher after those half-assed gym sessions and it promises to not weigh down your curl!

Thanks, Psssssst. Love you like a love song!

Got my dreams crushed by dry shampoo…

For a woman like myself with unruly, often belligerently frizzy hair, daily shampooing and conditioning is out of the question. Weekly washing of my hair is more realistic. With the time it takes to wash, blow dry, & flat iron…forget it! I mean, there aren’t enough hours in the day for me to get a decent workout in after work and then park in front of the TV for my required 6 hours of Bravo TV a night (I love you Andy Cohen!!!). Clearly I make some sacrifices, but dirty, sweaty hair isn’t one of them (sorry, this post is starting to sound like a tampon commercial). That’s when I turn to dry shampoo, which can be a wonderful thing. Sometimes.

Enter Suave dry shampoo. This economical, trustworthy looking can looks great. It retails for less than $3 and you can get it pretty much anywhere. I followed the directions exactly: shook can, held said can 8-10 inches away from my hair, sprayed directly on oily roots, used heat from my hands to absorb the excess powder. It worked just fine. The fact that it left that powdery, sticky substance on my hair was kind of off-putting, but I can handle it. After this first use, I was satisfied with Suave’s dry shampoo. When I went back to use the can a second time (a few days later), the can was COMPLETELY empty. Unusable. All gone. Why????

Because fuck you, that's why.

I thought I was going crazy, so I bought another can home. This time I used it twice, and when I went for it a third time, it was completely empty again.  Really? Am I an idiot or is this happening to anyone else?
