During this stay-at-home-time many of us are taking the opportunity to shampoo our hair less frequently, while at the same time we’re doing our meetings, job interviews, even happy hours, on Zoom, FaceTime, Skype or other video calls. It can be a bit of a conundrum. Pre Covid19, I generally shampooed every other day, hence 3-4 times a week. Now, I’m washing my hair twice a week so it’s flat and limp on pre-shampoo day – not a great look. I need all the fluff and fullness I can get into my long straight hair. I’ve been experimenting with a lot of dry shampoos and here are some of my favorites.
SGX NYC is a NYC based brand that works with top hair stylists to create hair styling products of salon quality, but not as salon prices. Products are made in the US.
The Volumizing Dry Touch Shampoo by SGX NYC is a Best of Beauty Award winner. It’s formulated with sea botanicals and bamboo and quickly absorbs oil. It works a double duty shift as it both cleanses your hair and adds textured volume. And if you’re a fragrance aficionado as I am, you’ll love the fresh freesia, jasmine, fig leaf and sandalwood scent – however, it won’t interfere with your regular perfume.
Beautiful Brunettes….you can stop worrying about the white residue from dry shampoo. SGX NYC has you covered with The Brunette Tint of Color Dry Shampoo. It blends perfectly into medium to dark brown tones while cleansing and refreshing hair. The lovely fragrance has notes of juicy citrus, water lily, pink rose and tonka bean make for a…ahem….heady delight.

Got2b is one of the brands of the Schwarzkopf family of hair products who have been creating hair color, styling and hair care products for 120 years. Products are made in the US.
Fresh it Up Instant Refresh Foam Cleanser by got2b is very different from any other dry shampoo I’ve tried, and it’s great. It’s not a spray on, but rather it’s a mousse-like foam that targets roots to refresh them. It adds volume to hair that’s been flattened by sleep and oil. I apply a good sized dollop of the fresh smelling foam into my hands, bend over and apply to my roots just where I want the most volume. I then work my hands through my hair near my scalp quickly so it dries almost instantly. My extra tip: Use it on freshly washed hair to add a little more volume after blow drying.
Fresh it Up Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo by got2b is the perfect dry shampoo for the day after your shampoo, when your hair just needs a light refresh. Simply spray where needed, underneath, or at the part, and then simply brush away any residue.
