Dry Shampoo: Mingin' or Marvellous?!
So, all of the above is good. We've established that dry shampoo is useful and handy, especially in a crisis situation. The odd time, my brother steals my hot water (yes, MINE, I turned on the immersion therefore I own it) and I throw a fit and end up having to dry shampoo my barnet and throw it up in a ''chic'' bun.
However, I must stress that that this is the odd time. In spite of the fact that my hair is ridiculously thick, coarse and extremely long, I still manage to wash it every second day. Sometimes I just let it dry naturally and then put it up, but the important thing to note here is that it is clean. I love the feeling of clean hair and can't stand it being overly greasy. When I use dry shampoo, it's a strictly short-term solution, and you can guarantee that I'll be in the shower within a matter of hours.
Enough of me boasting about my personal hygiene. I don't want to rag on people that use dry shampoo more than I do, I just don't understand why. Even when my hair was bright red, and every wash would fade the colour a little, I simply couldn't rely on dry shampoo. I literally can't stand the feeling of it in my hair and it drives me insane. Is this because my hair is so thick? I don't know.
And then there are those who rely on dry shampoo, well, too much. Dry shampoo, in my opinion, will not wash your hair properly and is not a substitute for real shampoo. People need to know when to stop! I really don't think it's cool to only wash your hair every week/week and a half and just rely on Batiste in the meantime. Really, what's so cumbersome about just washing your hair?!
Are you with me on this one, or are you a firm dry shampoo devotee?!
