6 Alternatives to Dry Shampoo
Having a stylist on hand 24/7 is something most of our budgets don’t agree with and the lifestyle of being a busy working girl means that we can’t spend as much time as wanted (or needed) on our hair.
This means there may be occasions when you don’t wash your hair every few days as you should, but instead have to purchase products that can help your hair to look fabulous every day of the week, regardless of your schedule.
Some women swear by dry shampoo, but if you have any experience of using it, you know that it’s a quick fix for the first day then after that, your hair will often look and feel worse than when you started using it.
