Lori and I have been discussing dry shampoo (aerosol spray/powder that adds volume, cuts grease, and extends the life of your hairstyle between washes) for a while now, and I finally found some at the grocery store - Suave - $2.99!  I told Lori and she's going to pick some up too.

I think that, for me, dry shampoo is going to be a complete farce.  I have extremely oily skin and hair.  There is NO WAY that I could dream of going every other day between washes.  Nope, I'm an every-morning showerer friends.  And I hate it.  I don't hate bathing, but do you even know how much I can't stand styling my hair every day?  Lots, that's how much.  I don't see how spraying on some powdered clay is going to keep my oil at bay, but we're going to see!

And if anyone wants to try to mine the oil wells that are my skin pores, I welcome you to try.  I keep the mineral rights though.

I feel your pain Ethne. I'm a total grease bomb, as are my two brothers and one sister. We blame our Dad for our greasy gene. We can't even shower at night because when we do we wake up with hair that looks like it hasn't seen water in days--an oily mess! Some men deal with 5 o'clock shadows. My sister and I combat our 12 o'clock grease-face with blotting sheets. And again at 3 and again at 6 and so on. Ah the life of a greaser.
I'm interested to see how it goes for you. Good Luck!

My sister and I are the exact same way. :) I'm using it right now, as I wouldn't dare to do it on a workday. I'm skeptical.

Okay, perhaps you should have consulted me on this one sis... I know far more than the average human on dry shampoo for some reason.

Sadly Pephy, I have concluded dry shampoo (for you and me) is for emergency grease ball days where we didn't hear our alarm. Or for a weekend day where we don't want to grease it up walking around Target.

However, it can be a great volumizer mid day, or before a night out after work. As to which one? They are NOT created equal. There are natural versions, such as Klorane that cost $18 for 3.2 oz. Salon Graffix makes a great INVISIBLE (keyword here) one for about $7. Tigi makes a wonderful invisible one called Dirty Secret and of course there is the world famous Oscar Blandi dry shampoo. Red ken just came out with one as well, although I have yet to set that planogram at work so you can't get it at my Ulta yet. There is even dry shamp. For blond hair too.

My verdict though, and therefore yours as well sis, is that we cannot use them except for emergencies because? Even if we did degrease our hair, our face would still feel disgusting.
