let's talk dry shampoo, shall we?

so. once upon a time i decided to take a risk and buy some dry shampoo from sally's that i'd never heard of before. i can't even tell you the name cause i got rid of it shortly after i bought it. it. was. the. worst. it sprayed on heavy and thick - it weighed down my hair and left huge white patches in my hair. i had pretty much given up on this dry shampoo business until i read a raving review about tigi bedhead dry shampoo.

you guys. seriously.

it's the best.

it sprays on like my aerosol hairspray and feels light as a feather. i swear it's invisible. i hardly have to massage it in before it has worked it way completely through my roots. it smells like heaven and not only does it do its job of soaking up the oils but it also gives my hair extra volume and shaping abilities. i use it almost every day, even on days that i shower, just because it makes my hair do whatever i want. fact: my husband uses it more than i do.

i use tigi's classic "dirty secret" dry shampoo, and their new "oh bee hive!" dry shampoo. i use them both equally, but they are different. i use the dirty secret when it's been a couple of days since i washed my hair and i need something a little more heavy duty (but it's not really heavy). the oh bee hive! i use when my hair is still pretty clean but i want more volume, because it feels a little lighter. i also feel like it has some extra shaping skills. oh, and the smell of oh bee hive!... mmmm.

i usually use one of these dry shampoos paired with the fructis aerosol hairspray in the picture. this is the best drugstore hairspray i've found and i've consistently gone back to it for years. i was introduced to it by my friend, haylee, and it's been my favorite ever since. it's light but strong, and also smells good. my main attraction to it is that it does flake to pieces and it still leaves my hair really flexible. <3 my fructis.

*tigi gave me the dry shampoo for free, but i am not being paid to post about it.

Once I pop this baby out I'll be right back on my dry shampoo obsession and I'll give these a try!
