So, then, what to do about hiding your less than clean hair from the masses?
In a conundrum one night when I was due to meet friends in a measly 20 minutes, I grabbed a can of TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo and sprayed it on my roots. And magically, my greasies disappeared with a few sprays!
To use, basically shake the can, position it a few inches away from your head, and spray onto your roots. The product comes out slightly whitish but once you run a brush or fingers through the hair, the product disappears.
For me, the results of the product were fantastic. Any oiliness at my roots disappeared instantly. Also, the dry shampoo has a slightly flowery smell which helps mask smoke smells. The product does mattify the hair a bit so you lose some shine at the roots, but hey, its better than greasiness!
Besides being great for extending a blowout or other hairstyle for one more day, the Dirty Secret dry shampoo would be great for updos where you need a little bit of texture to make the style "hold."
I paid around $18 for Dirty Secret dry shampoo but I found it here for a little more than $16.
