I know we’re coming to a close, but that doesn’t change that we have a few hot weeks ahead of us. And you know what they say about heat, right? That it propels sweat. And the thing about sweat is that it has this way of infiltrating the human head and rendering hair completely and utterly, in spite of a morning’s shower, oily. So, what’s a girl on the go and without time to shower/blow dry/wait for her hair to dry and then straight-iron it to do?
She’s to look no further than the nearest drug store, where the dry shampoo flows like coyotes in the wild (do coyotes “flow” in the wild?) and the regular shampoo languishes elsewhere. Like corn dogs in a freezer. Or something.
As someone who prides herself on the concept of traditional hygiene and an absence of it in relation to the self, I can confidently attest that I have tried at least 70% of the dry shampoos currently on the market but none of them — and I mean none of them — have salvaged my hair from the depths of looking like I just rubbed my hair in slice of pizza, extra oil, the way that Klorane has. Not even baby powder, which, if you’d have asked me about six months ago, would have garnered a response like, “OMG! You, like, *totes* have to try it! So cheap!”
Someone told me you are subject to hair loss if you use it too frequently, which upon further investigation appears to be unproven. It is still a scary thought, though, so I tried a whole big bunch of designer dry shampoos in lieu of the powder and found respite nowhere save for where Klorane is sold. It seems to give me the French glow and the appearance of apparent cleanliness. I’m still with hair, too, so that’s a plus. But then again, I might just be shouting for trees from deep inside of a forest, so, if you have any better methods to skirt showers, PLEASE DIVULGE.
I SAID NOW, KEVIN!
[Klorane Dry Shampoo is not to be confused with shampoop which is that thing where you poop in the shower and don’t even realize you’re pooping because you’re too busy washing your hair, which hasn’t been washed in so long because you’ve been using Klorane! Also, please picture this emoji.]
