Welcome to another edition of What I’m Loving Wednesday! I haven’t done one of these in a long time and I have a few products that are past overdue for a review!
I posted this pic on my Instagram the other day and asked if anyone had any hair topics they wanted covered and most everyone wanted to know about dry shampoo!!
First up lets talk about hair type. Not every product works on every hair type and I only know the ones that work best for me. My hair is super fine but I have a ton of it. It gets super frizzy in humidity and is pretty wavy/curly naturally.
Don’t be fooled by the pretty curls, these are flat iron curls and I have discovered that if I use my Chi to curl my hair and the right products I can get at leaf 4-5 days out of a wash. I used to be an everyday hair washer because my scalp was super oily. It still is and you can definitely tell when it’s straight but when it’s curly and has lots of volume on top I can get away with it.
I’m also trying to grow my hair out, I want Duchess of Cambridge (the former Kate Middleton) hair, and my hair stylist says that if I can wear it curly it will seem like it’s growing faster because I will quit focusing in looking at the length when it’s straight. And you know what? She’s right! So far anyway…
On to dry shampoo!! Currently I am loving Oribe’s Dry Finishing Spray.
Technically it’s not a dry shampoo but it works like one. I love that it’s clear so I can use it on my dark hair and not have to worry about white stuff on my scalp that looks like dandruff. I think the key to using a dry shampoo or texturing spray is knowing when to use it.
If I am wanting to stretch a style, particularly flat ironed curls, right before I go to bed I will spray my Oribe all over my scalp on the top of my head and the sides (where my hair gets super oily) and be sure and rub it in really good. Then, I put it up in a ponytail and go to bed. The next morning I take my ponytail down, fluff the top, run a wide tooth comb through my hair and I’m good to go. No oily scalp, no gritty dry shampoo feel. I can do this 3-4 nights in a row and make a style stretch 4-5 days.
If you have never tried Oribe products I highly recommend them. They are expensive, I think my Dry Texturizing Spray was $35 for a bottle but it is soooo worth it! It smells amazing and has lasted me 5 months so far! Tom Ford designed the smell for Oribe products if that tells you anything.
Side note- I was in Dallas this past week and stopped by Dry Bar to get a blowout and grabbed a bottle of their Triple Sec which id supposed to be very similar to Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray. It smells like heaven in a bottle. I will be trying it soon and will have a full review for you soon!
Dry bar hair, don’t you wish every day was a blowout day…
So now I want to hear from you! What is your favorite dry shampoo or texturizing spray?? Can you also add in your comment what type of hair you have so we can all get an idea of what type of hair it works on??
