Why I Love Dry Shampoo
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Waterl<ss. All opinions are 100% mine.
Can I tell you a secret? I only wash my hair twice a week. Yep, just two times a week. Are you a twice a week kinda gal too? I used to wash my hair every.single.day until I found out that was a major no-no. My hair just looks SO MUCH BETTER on day 2, 3 and even 4 of not washing it. The texture is PERFECT and I actually have volume!
Why You Shouldn’t Wash Your Hair Every Day
Washing your hair every day strips your scalp of its natural microbiome and can cause dryness and inflammation. It can also make your hair look and feel lifeless and brittle (trust me I know because this happened to me after years of doing it!) When you do wash your hair, you only need a quarter size amount – anymore than that is a waste.
Benefits of Dry Shampoo
So what do I use to keep my hair fresh and clean in between washes? Dry shampoo. It’s my secret haircare weapon and I never leave home without it! I bring it on ALL of my trips – like this last one I just took to Paris. I love the texture I get in between washes. It really is so much more voluminous and holds curl way longer. Not all dry shampoos are created equal and achieve that voluminous/fresh look though. In fact, many leave behind a white powder and residue which is SUPER evident if you have dark hair like mine. I was so excited when haircare line Waterl<ss reached out to me about their completely clear, residue free dry shampoo + conditioner.
Waterl<ss Dry Shampoo + Conditioner
Waterl<ss was created by a very small team of scientists. Right after creating the line, they were able to implement and see real life results when the people of Cape Town were hit with a serious drought/water scare. They sent their products over ASAP, and the response they received was overwhelmingly positive. I’m not surprised because I fell in love with the products right after trying them too.
First of all, I LOVED the smell and I am someone who is super sensitive to smells. Second of all, both products are completely clear and lightweight, so they left ZERO residue behind which is rare for dry shampoos. And third, they both WORK. My hair smelled great, was refreshed seconds after spraying it, and it felt stronger especially after using the dry conditioner. The dry shampoo is something I use multiple times a week – morning and night (if need be for date night!), and the dry conditioner is a great treatment to use after curling my hair too many days in a row.
