Since March 12th is the day to set clocks forward an hour, which means I lose an hour of sleep, not a good thing for this busy girl. But take notice, Klorane Dry Shampoo named daylight saving day as National DRY Shampoo Day, a day to celebrate NOT washing my hair, which gives that hour back to me. Yay! Actually, I’ve been using dry shampoos for about 5 years now, as it does save me hours of time in the morning washing/styling my long hair. Below is my step-by-step method for a 3/4-day reprieve from washing my hair, and I even reveal the longest I’ve ever gone “dirty” below.
I rely on dry shampoo to stretch the time between shampoo days and as a styling product giving me volume and body. My insider tips? I use dry shampoo at nighttime, right before I hop in bed – as everyone’s scalp produces oil over night that gets distributed through hair while sleeping. In addition, if I lightly spray it all over and use my fingers to drag it through to the ends, I end up with a beach-blown texture for casual days.
Shampoo in the morning with my regular shampoo, but use conditioner only on the ends, style as usual. That same evening, I spray the dry shampoo very lightly throughout my head, being careful just to get the roots of my hair, rub lightly into scalp with my fingers and put into a loose messy bun for bedtime, using a soft hair tie.
I comb/brush out my hair from the night before. I use the dry shampoo where I normally part my hair and along the hairline at the face, flip my hair over to spray the nape of the neck at the hairline, brush out again and style using my flat or curling iron. That evening I spray dry shampoo as a touch up only at the part and the hairline.
I part my hair in 2 inch vertical sections all over and spray lightly on the part lines, comb/brush after I’m completely done, and style as usual. That evening I brush my hair thoroughly to remove dry shampoo, and apply a moisture treatment to my hair all over, with a cap, sleeping in it if I can, otherwise leave on for 30-45 minutes before bedtime (this is a great time to mask my face) and then rinse out and shampoo.
I either use my regular shampoo that 3rd evening, or the following morning, and then repeat the process. When I go to a salon for a professional blowout, I can stretch the blowout another day by skipping the evening moisture treatment, apply dry shampoo lightly again, and wear my hair in a pony tail or braid or twist on the 4th day.
Klorane has quite a few versions of this shampoo, including one for oily hair, and a travel mini-size, so a little something for everyone. Oh, and the big reveal – I have actually made it to SEVEN days in a row using dry shampoo, before I caved and washed my hair! Happy NOT shampoo-ing your hair day! xoxo Robin
