Hey Joy, I'm glad you liked the post! It was awesome hearing back from you! And do you have a fav dry shampoo? That would have been neat to see on the list!

Oooo good one! I would actually like to hear your thoughts on a Dry Shampoo as well. I have tried a few for livening up hair after a workout and before I get home to properly wash it. I am at a loss for what is tried and tested out there!


Great post! I have tried a lot of the products listed and can't wait to try out the rest!

Thanks guys - good question. I tried a dry shampoo back in the day from Paul Mitchell but wasn't really a fan. I felt like it made my hair even more dirty. I haven't tried any this year but might to see what other formulations are like. I heard Ojon's is really good. :)
