Solution: Dry Shampoos For Those Too Lazy To Wash Their Hair

May 21, 2008 by Bryn

I can’t really believe I’m admitting this, but I can get somewhat lazy when it comes to washing my hair everyday. I’m wearing it short these days, which as bob and pixie adorned ladies can attest to, usually requires more styling than longer manes do. After all, we can’t just throw it into a ponytail when we don’t feel like putting forth much effort.

Unfortunately, my hair never agreed with my wash-every-other-day plan. It always looked (and felt) a bit too oily and limp at the roots without washing and styling – which caused me to reach for the headband, or even worse, cancel all plans and not leave the house at all. Which is why when dry shampoos came onto the scene, I got more than a little excited. These bottled wonders promised to be quick and easy alternatives to washing and drying your hair. So, I decided to give 3 of them a try to find out which ones came out on top.


The first of the bunch was Samy Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract ($8). When I first sprayed it on, my hair turned a light shade of grey, which was not the most settling experience, but after I followed the instructions and brushed through with a comb, the greyish color disappeared, and I could see the formula absorb all the excess oil. For the rest of the day, my hair looked clean, and had maintained great body and lift at the roots. Samy acted as a combo of dry shampoo, hairspray, and root-lifter all in one.

Ojon’s Rub-Out Dry Cleanser ($24) gives a more natural feel to the hair when applied. It still leaves the hair clean and build-up free, but doesn’t offer as much lift as Samy. I’d recommend Ojon for longer hair and those who want more natural, softer styles. Also be aware that this spray leaves a strong powder scent, so use sparingly.

I’ve reviewed Shampowder before, and there’s no doubt that the powder itself works to keep my hair clean and manageable. However, after using the two spray cans, I must admit Shampowder‘s tube and brush design ($16) lags in the easiest-to-apply department.

And the winner is… Samy Dry Shampoo. If you can handle the temporary Granny effect, Samy Dry Shampoo gives the perfect balance of oil clean-up and styling help. While all three clean up your hair, Samy added much needed body that lasted throughout the day.
