Dry Shamps. How To.


Shamps. Like champagne. But more practical. Much less fun. Regardless, this is a skill that I've mastered and a skill I believe every Renaissance woman should know (especially because it could add a good 15 minutes to your beauty sleep). You can thank me later.

Please realize this is an early morning (pre-coffee) rushed vlog. BUT, it's got the good stuff in it.

Also note: the camera is sitting below my mirror which I need to use for confirmed shamps success. So, it's not pretty or perfect, but neither are greasy roots.

At the end I happened to throw out a WHOLE lot of random names and information.

Good news: I've learned how to put together a graphic that holds all the brands of which you might need to know the name. As well as the notes I have to share with you regarding them.

1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7

These are my shamps confessions: I have not yet tried out number 3: Not your Mama's. A bottle is on the way from Amazon and I'll share those results later. I also haven't used No Drought (number 7) mostly because I don't want to have to use my fingers. But I've seen it around and heard it rocks. 

Cheers you little shamp-ions! 
(See what I did there?)

  1. Oh I have yet to find one I really like. I'll have to try the Dove! I'm pretty sure I threw away almost a half bottle of the TRESemme- really didn't like that!

  2. I am so glad you posted this because I have been wanting to try dry shampoo! I get so tired of washing it every single day because I know its pretty damaging to your hair. Dry shampoo would probably give my hair a break. Going to Target today to pick up some Dove :) By the way, just give me your perfect voluminous hair!

  3. I have never tried the dry shampoo you use. I use Not your Mothers and Lushes brand!!!! You should do more videos like this!!!!

  4. I really want to utilize dry shampoo. The only one I've tried is the tres semme and I thought it was gross. Must try some others!!

  5. I was not a fan of the Tresemme, but I think I'm ready to try again :) I thought this was super helpful. Happy Friday!

  6. How did you figure out the graphic? I have been trying for so long and just can't seem to figure it out. I am so new to photo editing programs.

  7. I'm still trying to find a good one for BLACK hair. I saw one for dark brown but tried it and it still looked weird. :(

  8. I am still trying to master the art of dry shampooing but I think I am getting the hang of it. I have been wearing my hair up on most dirty days but today I'm wearing it down and it actually looks okay. Transitioning from everyday washing is hard work in progress right now !

  9. Oh... and the Dove brand is what I use too... love it!

  10. I have heard that cocoa powder works for dark hair.... similar to baby powder plus has an awesome smell!

  11. I know that this is going to come as a HUGE shock most likely, but I have NEVER used dry shampoo ever. This is a great tutorial to get me started!

    Have tried a couple of different dry shampoos, with no such luck, will have to try dove!

  13. My only experience with dry shampoo was in the hospital when my SIL brought me suave's. It was okay-ish, but only because it was better than nothing! I'll have to try Dove's! Thanks for this!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I need to dry the dove one (I'll add it to my list of ones to try, currently have the new herbal essances one on there), but I love the Suave one, you should try it out if you haven't already. It smells really good and works pretty well. The Not Your Mothers one that you have listed works really well, but I'm not a huge fan of the smell and it can leave my hair white sometimes.

  15. This is silly but I am seriously thankful for this post because I have been looking for a dry shampoo to buy. YOU HELPED! haha. on another note though, I'm your newest follower. haha. yay for a new blogging buddy :) excited to be tagging along now!

  16. Dry shampoo saves my life many days! Thanks for this!

  17. I'm just getting into the dry shampoo game and I have to admit I've never let it just sit on my hair before brushing/styling so I loved your advice! I've only tried one other, but I do love Not Your Mother's. I got it free from Influenster so I have no idea how much it actually costs but I'll definitely keep Dove in mind if I'm not willing to fork it over for NYM.

    ReplyDelete
  18. What an AWESOME idea! I never would've thought of that!!!!!!! Thanks!!!! :D

  19. Batiste is my favourite - and I'm sharing on my blog this week too x

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have just started using Herbal Essences dry shampoo, it comes in a white bottle, and it is great! Thanks for writing this article, I've been through so many dry shampoos in my life and I am always looking for a good new one!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Fantastic video! You are so right, both the garnier and tresemme are not quite up to par. I've been using the Loreal everstyle that I like. I'll have to give the Dove a try though. I use their mousse which I love so it only makes sense I should try their dry shampoo!

  22. Batiste is in my hair TODAY! I got the two brands I hadn't tried out over the weekend and Batiste smells AMAZING. So fresh and there's not much grain. It could quickly be a favorite (slash floral bottles draw me in). :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. So I got two more bottles over the weekend. Not your mother's is awesome. Smells like lemons and I like it. But it's definitely a learning curve because I kept getting the white edges on my skin... Then Batiste, LOVE. It smells fresh and pretty and my hair doesn't feel grainy. Maybe try that one? And it comes in brown so you don't get the white fluff.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It seems gross at first... Seriously, but patience. I went from washing every day to going four days now... I NEVER thought that's how I'd feel, but now anything less than three makes me frustrated! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have Suave on my grocery list (seriously) because anything you love will obviously be a love of my own. NBD.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yes, cocoa powder! People say it's way better too because it's natural... I know it's lame, but I just don't care THAT much. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. You will laugh, but I did it on Paint. I'm too "budget-friendly" for Photoshop so I use Paint and Powerpoint and GIMP (which is like Photoshop but a free, open-source program) to do all my stuff. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. You can do it girl! You just have to find one that you love and go for it... Day after day after day! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Not your Mother's is wonderful. Just got my bottle over the weekend and tried it. The smell is AMAZING... But it is heavier duty I realized so I'm getting used to the thicker feeling of my hair (which makes it even bigger and I love that!).

    ReplyDelete
  30. Anna, you can do it! It's like finding the right shoes, you've got to try a bunch out and there'll be one that always comes out on top. Then you can use it day after day after day!

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's so tricky... But I realized that I lost my sensitivity to it after a while.. Which is kind of disgusting now that I say it, but I can go two or three days with dry shampoo and have it down then the fourth day I just throw it up in a top knot!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Girl, it'll be key when baby comes! Showers and getting ready can be reduced by so much time (I seriously take half the time when I dry shampoo) so baby snuggles can take that place! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. The first few times I tried it I hated it. Or I'd be frustrated with the feel/smell. But then it just grows on you. Slash I didn't mind how it took me half the time to get ready in the morning! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've heard love-hate reviews with Suave. Some say it's not heavy-duty enough for sweaty girls... Which I am one of, but others swear by it. Try Dove's I'm so confident you'll love it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. YES, Not Your Mother's does leave whiteness! I got my bottle over the weekend and tried it and.. well, it was very white on the edges of my hairline! Suave is on my list to get this week!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hello lovely! So glad that it helped and that you're sticking around so we can get to know each other... Please tell me how dry shampoo goes for you!?! I love when Mama's get into it because how much does it help to take less time in the bathroom with little ones running amuck!?!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You're such a dear. I have Batiste in my hair today for the first time and love it! The smell is... YUM. :) xoxo.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've realized the more I let it sit the better it goes... I got a bottle of NYM's over the weekend and love it... Though it was a process to not end up with a white, dusty hairline! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Herbal Essense... To the list! :) It's so hard to find one that has EVERYTHING that you need, but I guess that's what all the product trial is for! Good thing I enjoy the comparisons.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh thank you Elizabeth! It's funny how quickly a bottle can be a wah, wah, wah failure. I tried Garnier's and thought, ugh! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Future Dr. H, you use it too. Or come to my house, drink wine, and let me do it for you. Deal?

    Yes! I want to see your new house and your wonderful face!

  43. Ok so I was in Dallas when you did this. I just watched it. I LOVE IT. I totally use dry shampoo and it's done WONDERS for me too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. So what are your thoughts on the not your mothers brand?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Soooo, I loved it. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it for months. And then they recently changed their formula (and now it's all cheaper to buy) and I cannot stand it because there's not enough powder to dry my hair up... So I look like a grease ball regardless of how much I spray. I've moved back to Dove, but I'm not 100% committed to it. I have a bottle of L'Oreal's stuff waiting to be used. I'm thinking of trying out the No Drought shampoo even though it's not a spray (which is not as convenient). :) Hoping to do a follow up post in the months to come! :)
