Q & A : Getting rid of “bed” hair

My friend Suzie from Suz’s Space saw me rave about dry shampoo a few weeks ago. Yes, I know it’s been around for ages, I can be a little bit slow when it comes to these things – sometimes. Anyway, I knew about dry shampoo before I went to the Instant Rockstar event, but I hadn’t tried it out and didn’t know that they had released one with black powder for dark coloured hair. So yes, you can imagine my excitement when I found out a)I can get away with not washing my hair for 3 days and NOT have limp, oily looking hair and b) not have to worry that I’ll have white powder on my hair either!

Suzie has short, cropped, wavy black hair and was wondering if dry shampoo would help get rid of her “bed” hair. She didn’t want to have to blow dry her hair nor did she want to put any other products in her hair. Here’s what I have to say:

The great thing about dry shampoo besides being a convenient solution for those days where you just need to up and go, is that it also helps to create texture  and volume on your hair. Here’s how to apply dry shampoo on your hair:

  1. Section your hair – not where you normally have your hair parted.
  2. Hold the dry shampoo spray about a few centimetres away and spray onto the parting you’ve made.
  3. Brush your hair back.
  4. Do these steps to different sections of your hair.

I’ve included a video from Beauty Heaven showing you what I mean:

The end result? Some body to your hair and bye-bye weird “just got out of bed” hair. A precaution though – try not to use dry shampoo a few days in a row. The maximum I’ve used is 2 days in a row. For instance, I’ll wash my hair on day one, then use it on day two and three and by day four, I’d have to wash my hair. Remember to wash your hair with shampoo TWICE – the first time is to clean out the product and the second time to treat the hair.

Some brands of dry shampoo out there you can try out are:

Instant Rockstar Dirty Weekend (Dry Shampoo) in Dark rrp$16.95

Bastiste Coloured Dry Shampoo rrp$12.95

Cedel Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair rrp$7.99

I do hope this solves Suzie’s hair issue and hopefully she’ll have the “I just washed and styled my hair” look!

    Thanks for putting these things to the test for me. I’m looking forward to having that “just washed and styled my hair” look.

    I love that Batiste dry shampoo. Good to know I can get it in my hair colour – must try that!

  • Leticia says:

    Love the video demo. It shows the real effects and I am definitely would try this for myself. Maybe post a review on the actual experience by me.

  • Maggie says:

    I am still not convinced of all these dry shampoos that I keep hearing about. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me. One of these days I will have to try one.
