I am a greasy lady. I sweat while sitting. I sweat a shit-ton when stressed. When I work out, forget about it. In my younger days I was a two-shower-a-day lady. In high school/college I could have easily supplied enough moisture to function as a household humidifier. Marriage, big-girl job, and three kids later I do not have time for such nonsense.
Enter dry shampoo. This shit is amazing. Not only do I look good, it is idiot proof (I mean, I figured it out eventually). Follow the instructions and you are golden. You look like you tried a little and you smell decent. Best trick I know, pile your hair in a knot and spray your roots, rub it in, comb it out, done.
Only drawback is the white residue. Make sure you distribute that stuff evenly. I walked around for good 2-months with noticeable skunk stripes before I figured that one out. The worst was when I bought the brunette tinted variety. I sprayed that in my ears on accident. It was like a self-tanner nightmare in my ear canal. Do not do that.
Anything that makes the morning routine even slightly easier should be fully embraced. Dry shampoo simply helps keep me looking like I have my shit together, even when I clearly do not.
- By no means do you need to break the bank either. I really love Dove brand… hear that Dove? I’ll take all the free dry shampoo you can send now.

Just figured out the dry shampoo too! By the end of day two I could great a bike chain with my hair without a wash. Enter dry shampoo and I go three days now! Fabulous!! But must mush in the stuff, I had white streaks too! Mom of 5 Boyz!
