I woke up today with a bit of a cough. I don’t really think that I am getting sick or anything, but my body always struggles to adjust when the weather starts to change. Believe me when I say that it is really starting to get cold out. It was only 34 degrees (1 degree Celsius) when I took the dogs for their walk this morning.
Not only was I not feeling well, but time just felt like it was whizzing by. Activities that normally take me 5-10 minutes to complete now seemed to take 30 minutes! Maybe that’s just part of having a little bit of a cold. When I hopped into the shower, I simply didn’t have the time or the energy to wash my hair. I have A LOT of hair, y’all. It isn’t exactly long, but it is pretty thick. Washing my hair is an entire event in and of itself.
Luckily, I didn’t to worry about washing my hair in the shower thanks to Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo. I recently started using this dry shampoo and it has totally changed how I think of dry shampoo as a product. I have always been a big fan of Batiste dry shampoo or Not Your Mother’s dry shampoo in a pinch. Living Proof had me intrigued, however, with it’s promise of actually cleaning my hair. I had previously avoided this dry shampoo due to its hefty price tag when compared to other brands, but decided to give it a try.
Y’all. I don’t know if I can go back.
First off, I used a lot less product than I do with others. Sure, I paid more up front…but if it lasts longer and goes further, isn’t it the same price or cheaper in the end? Normally, I cannot run my fingers through my hair or touch my scalp without a weird chalky feeling after using a dry shampoo. Not with this one. It actually feels clean. On top of that, it smells really good. It smells clean and slightly floral. .
Granted, I still need to brush my hair, but check out the before and after pictures below.
As you can see, Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo pulled the oil from my hair without leaving any residue. My hair also isn’t left with a dull color like it can be with some other shampoos. No white spots giving away my “I haven’t washed my hair in a week because I am using dry shampoo” secret.
I honestly went into this thinking that there was no way that I would be convinced that this was worth the money. BUT. IT. IS. I have decided that this is going to be a new must-have item in my gym bag. Even when I have recently washed my hair, it tends to get a bit greasy after a trip to the gym…especially when I am doing a lot of running. Not anymore.
