A Bad Dry Shampoo Experience

Why Must You Be So Cruel, Cheap Dry Shampoo?

This morning, I made a mistake. Instead of my trusty Klorane or Biolage hair refresher, I decided to give a dry spray from the drugstore, the aptly named Psssssst ($6), a try.

I sprayed it in, brushed it out, and my hair looked more than fine. It looked quite nice, in fact. Later today, however, I ran my hand through my hair, only to come back with a ton of white powder on the tips of my nails. The dry shampoo had settled onto my scalp despite a thorough brushing. Gross. I also got paranoid that my hair looked all powdery, and spent a good portion of the afternoon trying to make my scalp as hidden as possible. I usually love a good drugstore version of more expensive products, but this time it just wasn't the same. I've also heard good things about several less expensive dry shampoos, and Psssssst has probably worked well for someone sometime, but that day was not today, and that person was not me. Better luck next time, Walgreens.
