I've been growing my hair out, and as it's gotten longer, my inclination to wash it has diminished rather dramatically. My current routine has me shampooing every four or five days, which is apparently what Kim Kardashian does, as though proves any sort of point. Ms. Kardashian has a baby and a media empire to look after; I'm just lazy.
The result of this, unsurprisingly, is a dependence on dry shampoo, which I use on the first day to give my hair better volume and texture, and apply again on each subsequent day to keep the grease at bay. I'm sure something weird is happening to my scalp at this point, but let's assume it isn't. By the fifth day, my hair is kind of chalky and dense, not unlike Tilda Swinton's styling in "Only Lovers Left Alive." This is also my personal aesthetic goal, so it's a real win-win.
For this, I'm currently really fond of Not Your Mother's Clean Freak dry shampoo, because it is relatively cheap for its size, smells inoffensive and works like a charm. While I could theoretically wash my hair more regularly in general, this product will actually come in handy during Fashion Week, when sleep is more important than hair care.
Not Your Mother's Clean Freak dry shampoo, $5.99, available at Ulta.
