To give you an idea of an average week in the life of my hair, here's my weekly routine:
- Sunday Evening - wash hair
- Monday - wear hair mostly straight, maybe pinned up a little bit
- Tuesday - wear hair curly (done with straightener or my cheapo Conair curling iron)
- Wednesday - wear hair loose and wavy (do nothing aside from spritz some non-aerosol hair spray over my hair in the morning)
- Wednesday Evening - wash hair
- Thursday - wear hair mostly straight
- Friday - wear hair curly
- Saturday - wear hair loose and wavy
- Sunday - wear hair in a bun on the top of my head
Klorane, for those of you who don't know, isn't all that bad but doesn't soak up much "oil". The product comes out of the can in a very fine mist, which is probably OK if you have super thin hair or are looking to clean just your bangs after work before you head out, but it didn't quite do the trick for me. TRESemme is horrible and feels like gum in your hair. I tried to pawn the bottle off to my husband after one use (he's also a dry shampoo fan) and even he couldn't deal with the stickiness of the product. Batiste is the best I've found thus far - aside from my favourite powder dry shampoo from Cake Beauty (the company whose products you'll be able to win in my April giveaway).
Batiste is easy to use and pretty affordable. If I grab a can from the drug store, it's usually about $8 or so. Once in a while a can turns up at a beauty depot or Winners/Homesense/Marshalls for $4-$6. To use, you just brush out your hair, spritz a little all over, and then run your hands through your hair or brush it again to distribute the product evenly throughout. It's best if you apply it while you hold your head upside down so the product can really reach your crown and roots well. Personally, I like to opt for the Tropical scent as the original is a little noticeable and the Rose scent is way too strong for my liking.
