Hair Trend Alert: The Great Unwashed Masses?

I have been alternately blessed and cursed with thick, wavy hair…something that was more troublesome than trendy back in the days when my mother was the one charged with ripping the brush through my hair. Alas, she has only herself to blame and to this day, her hair remains as thick as it was back then.

Each day, I was told, I should wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner. On the few times that I skipped the shampoo or added too much conditioner, I was rewarded with tell-tale greasy hair and a disapproving look. However, according to the New York Times, my hair would now be trendy – not trashy.

The newest fashion fad throws back to the early-through-mid 1900s, when women with means had their hair washed, set, and dried once a week. Now, dry shampoos have eliminated the ickiness of those in between days and women are embracing the luxury of not having to wash their own mane. These new products are hitting the market in two forms: spray-on like this Rene Furterer brand ($23), or as a powder like Shampowder ($16).

Have you tried the dry shampoos?  What do you think?  Is not washing your hair good for the follicles or just plain gross?  Leave your comments below.
