2nd day hair fix.

Ever since I made the switch from washing my hair every day to washing every other day, I have loathed 2nd day hair. My hair was flat, lifeless, and had the grease thing going on. I'm sure that my horrendous hair was probably in my head and that others didn't really notice, but it's something that I've always been conscious of. 

If you're super obervant of my hair styling each day (and I do hope that you're not), you would have noticed that on 1st day hair days my hair is typically down and styled normally. On 2nd day hair days, you would see headbands, braids, ponytails, etc. All in efforts to mask the lifeless hair. 

I have talked to a few friends about this and they have all suggested the same thing: dry shampoo. I don't know that it was about dry shampoo, it just seemed so weird to me. Spray some stuff on your hair and then it's back to pretty? Naaah. Also, it conjured images of Heidi Montag when she was on I'm a Celebrity,  Get Me Out of Here! She was always talking about her dang dry shampoo.

Not really the look that I was going for.

After complaining about this to my sister Sarah, she ever so wisely suggested Tresemme dry shampoo. "Black bottle, green top, and it really works," she said. I decided to give it a go, thinking that if I don't like it then I was only out about $4.
 

After just one use, I can say that I am conferted to the dry shampoo movement. It was amazing- take flat, greasy hair, give it a few sprays of this stuff and voila! Pretty hair! Thank you dry shampoo for making me no longer dread 2nd day hair!

Where did you find it? I've been looking for a good dry shampoo, too. My 2nd day hair is always bobby pins or ponytail.

(My word verification is sumdg which made me think of slumdog, which is what I think my hair is like on day 2.)

I have been using dry shampoo for over a year and LOVE the stuff. I am glad to hear you like the Tresemme stuff, I have been curious. Before that brand, you had to buy the dry shampoo at a salon or my sis in law would get it for me at the PROF stores, but it is still at least $10. Living far away now, it won't be easy...so Tresemme it is.

If for any reason you want to try another brand through a hairdresser, try Rockaholic. It smells SO GOOD!
