Dry shampoos: the next beauty revolution? We asked a pro, who said:
“Women are washing their hair less and less, partly because lived-in texture is hot and partly because there are so many good dry shampoos on the market,” says Ruth Roche, Artistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care
Roche is right. First and foremost, the carefree textured look is so right now. And second, dry shampoos are becoming so common, they're assuming their place right next to hairspray (and in your styling routine)!
Here, Hot On Beauty editors list some of their favorite water-free refreshers.
Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo
Rather than using talc, which can make hair appear chalky, Pureology's special formula contains smithsonite and obsidian--a blend of rich minerals that absorb oil while leaving behind smooth and touchable texture. It also contains an anti-fade complex to prolong color vibrancy, especially important during the high-exposure summer months. pureology.com
