Dry Shampoo Journal with Meghan Donovan of wit & whimsy
It’s no secret that when it comes to shampooing, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Avoiding a daily shampoo helps prolong color-treated hair, benefits the environment by saving water, maintains hair’s natural oils to prevent dryness and breakage, and a myriad of other pros.
If the idea of skipping a wash makes your heart skip a beat – don’t fret! Guest blogger Meghan Donovan breaks down the key to hair maintenance in-between wash days: dry shampoo. Follow along as Meghan details her three-day dry shampoo journey and spills her top styling secrets. (Spoiler Alert: Your day 3 hair will never be the same.)
“Dry shampoo is always in my arsenal to make my hair look and feel better longer after washing. Since I have color-treated hair, I try not to over-wash it and therefore usually only wash it two to three times per week. A favorite trick is to add a bit of dry shampoo at the roots after curling my just-washed hair. It gives a bit of texture and volume, and adds grip for styling clean hair, which doesn’t always hold well.
I rely on Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk not only for soaking up any grease in the morning after Day 1, but also to give my hair volume. My hair has thinned as I've aged and with that, my volume has suffered. I love the oomph my hair gets after using the dry shampoo. I spray at the roots, let it sit for 45 seconds and then brush it out for a fresh, voluminous style.
Another one of my favorite dry shampoo tricks is to apply it to my roots at night on day two. This way, it helps to soak up oil while I sleep and styling is even easier in the morning! Thanks to dry shampoo, my day three looks just as good day one.”
