You’ve probably heard by now (likely from us!) that it’s not good for your hair to shampoo every day. Daily washes will strip your hair of the natural oils that keep it conditioned and healthy. Still, you may feel that your hair gets a little lifeless – especially at the roots – without daily shampoos. That’s why we think the concept of dry shampoo is so wonderful. Spray a little into your roots on a no-wash day, and you’ve got volume, texture, and shine in just seconds! But, like any hair product, not all dry shampoos are created equal. Drug store brand dry shampoos will dry out your hair and leave behind a residue. Salon quality dry shampoos, on the other hand, are designed to strengthen your hair for the long term, not just make them look good in the short term. L’ANZA’s new Healing Style Dry Shampoo, introduced earlier this summer, is one of our very favorites.
In case you need further convincing, here are a few reasons we love this dry shampoo:
1. It’s completely residue free. L’ANZA calls this the first “sin-free” dry shampoo because it is virtually weightless. It’s made with a rare mineral clay called Hectorite which adds an incredible boost in absorbency. That means the product is going in to the follicle of your hair, not sitting on top of it and creating a sticky residue. The result is hair that not only looks freshly washed, but feels that way, too.
2. The ingredients are amazing. We’ve already sung the praises of Hectorite clay, but L’ANZA didn’t stop there. This product is packed full of natural botanicals like Keratin Cactus Complex, Seaweed Extract, and Peppermint Leaf Extract that revive and purify your hair. An added bonus of all those natural ingredients is that your hair will smell great.
3. It’s so easy to use. This isn’t the kind of hair product that will create an elaborate, time-consuming morning ritual. In fact, it’s just the opposite. On days that you don’t shampoo, you simply spray this into your roots, massage it through the rest of your hair, and walk out the door (well, you might want to put on some makeup and clothes first!). You’ll have volume all day, and you’ll save the time you would otherwise have spent on your morning blow-dry and style.
There you have it – three reasons to skip the wash and spray your way to happy hair! And if you’re ready to try dry shampoo, this is the month to do it – all of our dry shampoos are 20% off during the month of August!
Happy styling, from the 140 Crew!
