Eliza's Game-Changing Dry Shampoo

The end all be all of drugstore dry shampoos.

Because I have hair that is both very fine and very straight, I'm a huge fan of using dry shampoo to build up texture and create that thing known as "cool girl bedhead." I also loathe washing my hair because I am a lazy human, so I've experimented with a lot of dry shampoos in my day.

I would like to share with you now what I call The One De-Greaser To Rule Them All: Tresemmé's Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo, which retails for just six bucks at Duane Reade. I truly believe that any dry shampoo that costs you more than $10 is 100% not worth it, because those things run out so quickly. You heard me: I think Klorane is overrated. 

Here's why it's great: It has "mineral clay" in it (I'm reading this off the bottle, because it also sits on my desk.), meaning it adds a little bit of a chalky feel to your strands. Not so awesome if you scrunch your hair and then eat a sandwich with your now product-laden fingers, but so, so worth it if you want to give your strands a new, undone lease on life. Think of it as your hair's "Eat, Pray, Love."

This particular product is formulated specifically for fine/oily hair (hiya!), so I accept that it may not be as game-changing for some as it has been for me. But for $6, it's worth a try.
