I can’t remember when I spotted my first grey hair, but the moment when I first realized I had chunks of it growing in I remember vividly. I was driving home from work one day and it was particularly sunny out. The sun was streaming in the window and I caught a glimpse of my hair in my rear-view mirror. It was shimmering! When I got to the next stop light, I realized that the shimmer was not just a trick of the light, but in fact was a ton of stark white hairs growing in around my temples. I’d been highlighting my hair for years but had only recently decided to take a break from coloring and the lack of blonde highlights made the contrast between the grey hair and my natural brown color quite evident. At only 25, grey hair was, in my opinion, not an option. And so my obsession with fixing this “problem” began.
Apparently, it’s not that uncommon to start seeing grey hair in your twenties (but try telling that to the 25 year old who still feels like she’s 18). In fact, it’s only getting more common and researchers say stress, diet, and environment are likely culprits.
In some cases, a simple vitamin deficiency can be the cause. Grey hair can be caused by a deficiency in B12, B5, B6, Folic Acid, and/or copper. Do not discount a B Vitamin deficiency as it is more common than one might think. The Birth Control Pill has been linked to deficiencies in B vitamins and thus if you’ve been taking it for years, you might want to add a supplement.
Cover It: If you want to cover your grey, there are an endless number of dyes and products to help you do that.
Permanent Color: If you are more than 30% grey you’ll probably need permanent color to cover your grey. We recommend seeing a hair colorist for the first application of permanent dye to find the right color and then you can try it at home.
Demi-Permanent Color: If you’re just beginning to see grey, you will want to steer clear of permanent dye as long as possible since it’s such a huge commitment. For an at home option, try a demi-permanent color like Clairol Natural Instincts. The color washes out in about a month so you won’t have lines of demarcation and if you aren’t crazy about the color, you can try a new one next month.
Highlights and Lowlights: Another option for those with just a little bit of grey is to highlight and lowlight around the grey to blend it in. Highlights and lowlights grow out more naturally than all-over color, so you won’t have to visit the salon as often. That said, do leave this trick to a professional as it’s too hard to see what you’re doing on your own!
Embrace It: We read an article on FindaBeautySalon.com about how to embrace your grey hair and really loved their advice so much we decided to spread it. After all, covering up grey hair is costly and requires a lot of time and maintenance, and we don’t know many modern women who are running around with a ton of money and effort to throw at something that’s natural, not a threat to your health, and is objectively just as beautiful as any other “look”!
Use the Right Shampoo: If you’re going to embrace your grey, you want to make sure you use the right products to bring out its shimmer. A blue or purple tinted shampoo will help keep grey hair bright and prevent dulling.
Try Blending: Rather than dying over your grey hair, ask your stylist to highlight around the grey to blend it. You’ll end up with a gorgeous multi-tonal look.
Work It: You know how Lady Gaga can make anything look cool? It’s all about attitude. If you’re embarrassed by your grey hair, others will sense that and consider it a “problem” too. But if you have fun with it and flaunt it, other people won’t perceive it as a “problem.”
Cut it: Grey hair tends to be more brittle and harder to keep long. If you’re extra careful with your hair care, then long grey hair is beautiful and we think you should go for it. Otherwise, you may want to cut your hair a bit shorter to keep it in good shape. Consider a fun spunky cut to keep the look youthful.
By this point in the summer, if you haven’t already thrown caution to the wind and abandoned your high maintenance hair styling routines, then you’re missing out! What’s the point in having every hair in place when you’re just going to drive around with the windows down or end up wind-blown on the beach? These three simple hairstyles are great go-to’s for summer hair that’s relaxed yet gorgeous, and so low maintenance.
Beachy Waves: This look is super sexy any time of the year, not just summer. Luckily, it’s very simple to create too. All you need for a great beachy waves hairstyle is a little salt spray! You can buy pre-packaged stuff at the drug store, or just fill a spray bottle with water, sea salt, and a couple dollups of your favorite conditioner. Spray into the lengths of your wet hair and scrunch the ends up toward the roots. Allow the hair to dry naturally, and voila!
Braids: Beachy waves are great for everyday, but when you want something a little more quirky or fun, braids are a great option. There are so many different ways to braid your hair and so many types of braids. A side braid is a classic that you can’t go wrong with, but we also love braided updo’s and braided half-back styles. Classic braids are simple enough that anyone can create them, but if you have the time and patience to learn to fishtail braid, it’s the look to get this summer!
Headband: When all else fails, have a few cute headbands lying around to pop into your hair in an emergency. Sometimes all that wind, salt water, and heat can really take a toll on your hair. A brightly colored or patterned headband will help distract away from whatever’s going on with your hair and keep you looking chic. Headbands are a definite necessity to keep in your desk at work!
You know those days when you just can’t get out of bed? You know you need to shower but in that half-conscious state you convince yourself that no one will care if you’re a nasty greasy mess at work. Well your co-workers might not care, but you will and do. When you finally pull yourself out of bed with 10 minutes before you need to leave you look in the mirror and panic at the sight of your greasy hair. The simple solution? Dry Shampoo. If this is a regular morning routine for you then you may want to invest in some high quality store bought dry shampoo like:
Honestly, you probably don’t need to spend $20 on dry shampoo. The Batiste is probably your best option for a store bought dry shampoo. Most dry shampoos are made with simple starch or talcum powder, which brings us to the DIY recipes. If you’re in a pinch and happen to have any of the following on hand at home, you can make your own. It will be a bit messier than the aerosol kind, but better to make a mess on the floor than to have a mess in your hair.
Corn Starch: Simple corn starch will soak up excess oils wonderfully without any scent whatsoever. Just be sure to brush through thoroughly.
Corn Starch + Cocoa Powder: If you’re brunette and corn starch makes you look a little grey, then use this dry shampoo recipe from the blog Light Clean Simple. Just mix one part corn starch with one part cocoa powder. Or add a bit more cocoa powder if you’re hair is super dark. It will darken the powder so it blends in better, but there’s no cocoa scent once you brush it through.
Baby Powder: Not our favorite since the smell is so strong, but it will definitely cut the grease in an emergency.
Any Makeup Powder: If you have any loose powder lying around that will probably work too. Nothing absorbs oil like the corn starch, but if it’s an emergency then just use a lot of loose makeup powder.
Hope that helps you on lazy days! Really, what modern woman can live without this kind of knowledge?
I have had issues with uneven skin tone for most of my life. I guess my problems come from the fact that I have super pale skin that’s prone to redness and discoloration. The slightest breakout will cause a red mark that lingers for months while just a minute in the sun gives me ridiculous freckles and melasma (brown discoloration). I used to just slap on layers and layers of makeup to deal with the problem, but ever since I tried Rosehip Seed Oil, my skin has made a total turn around.
A lot of people who have issues with discoloration turn to AHA, also known as glycolic acid, which peels the top layer of skin and helps to even out skin tone. Although the AHA worked for me to some degree, it also left my sensitive skin irritated and pinkish all the time. Rosehip Seed Oil has similar abilities but actually soothes my skin, making it appear more even and healthy and glowy. I also find that I’m not battling oily skin since using Rosehip Seed Oil, and I’ve read it has the ability to balance your skin’s natural oil production. I swear a few of the premature wrinkles I’d gotten from using acne fighting products seem to be softer and less noticeable as well. And it’s not just me. My friends have all commented lately on how “rested” I look and asked me what I’ve been doing.
In addition to being great for lightening scars, evening skin tone, and softening wrinkles, I’ve also read that Rosehip Seed Oil is great for stretch marks and moisturizing hair and skin (particularly elbows, knees and heels).
I’ve been using the Organic Rosehip Seed Oil by Aubrey Organics and have been really happy with it. I really trust Aubrey Organics: they have really high standards for the production of their products to ensure they are as organic and pure as possible. I actually also started using the Aubrey Organics Rosa Mosqueta Shampoo as well. It contains Rosehip Seed Oil so I don’t actually have to rub the oil itself into my fine easily-weighed-down hair. The shampoo is working so well: it’s their “safe for color treated hair” shampoo and I find my color lasts a lot longer since using it.
Oh but I’m almost forgetting my favorite benefit of Rosehip Seed Oil: the smell!! It’s seriously the best smelling natural scent I’ve ever smelled. It’s one of those great light lingering scents that’s not at all strong but just smells so fresh and clean. Plus–BONUS–My boyfriend is totally intoxicated by it.
How will you wear your hair on your wedding day? In a classic chignon? Long flowing waves? Or a half up-half down style? A lot of brides who wear their hair down on a regular basis want to wear their hair down for the wedding but fear they’ll look back on pictures and wish they’d worn a more “timeless” look. Kate Middleton famously wore her down for her wedding to Prince William, despite everyone’s expectation that she’d wear her hair up since the affair was so formal. Kate supposedly said she wanted to look like herself. If you’ve been wrestling with the decision whether to wear your hair up or down at your wedding, consider the following:
Your Venue: If you’re having your wedding in a church, an opera house, or a theater, then an up-do is probably most appropriate. But if you plan to get married in a barn, on a ranch, or on the beach, consider wearing your hair at least half down.
Natural settings lend themselves very nicely to natural, free-flowing hair.
Your Personal Style: Don’t wear an up-do just because someone else (your mom, your bridesmaids, whoever) tells you you should. You’ll feel most beautiful on your wedding day if you feel like yourself. Are you normally a t-shirt and jeans girl? Then a fussy up-do will probably make you feel uncomfortable.
The Weather: Even though we recommended hair down for a beach wedding, if it’s a particularly windy or rainy day then you may want to wear your hair in a secure style just to be safe. You can still probably get away with a half up-half down do, but just ask your stylist to make sure it’s tightly secured so no pieces will be falling in your face.
Pictures: Peek-a-boo bangs may be sexy on a day to day basis, but in pictures they can be a nightmare. It’s okay to have a couple loose, narrow tendrils but if your hair is in your face in all your pictures you’ll be really sad.
You Gut Instinct: Probably best not to over think this one. Try to think back on the original vision you had for your wedding day–did you imagine your hair up or down? Go with whatever your heart wants.
Your Future Hubby: If you’ve thought through all of the above and still can’t decide, consider how you think your future hubby would most like to see you look on the big day. Usually even the most indecisive bride can arrive at a decision when she imagines what she wants her husband to see walking down the aisle.
What’s not to love about this classic, gorgeous, yet laid-back hairstyle on Jessica Chastain at the 2012 Oscars!? This wavy half-up half-down hairstyle would be great for an easy going bride or an outdoor wedding. Chastain pulls it off beautifully. She looks so feminine and relaxed. So how can you get this style
to hold the waves. If you’ve got naturally stick straight hair, you may want to wash it the night before, as having some natural oils will help the waves from falling flat. Flip your head over and lightly mist a thickening spray on the lengths of your hair. My favorite is Bumble and Bumble’s Thickening Spray. It adds body without getting sticky and smells great!
2. Next, use a comb to create a loosely centered part. It doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, We like this look better when the part’s a little messy.
3. Now, we’ll create the height that Jessica Chastain has at her crown. The goal here is just to add volume: this look is about understated elegance, not drama. So no huge bouffants on this one. Simply grasp 1 inch sections of hair near your crown and begin using a fine toothed comb to tease in a little volume. Teasing can be dangerous so it’s best to use a seamless comb to avoid breakage. Once you’ve teased most of the hair around your crown, you can lightly use a boar bristle brush to smooth over the top of the teased area.
4. Then simply use a few bobby pins to secure the hair you’d like to include in the half-up portion. If you have bangs, leave them loose in front, but if not, you’ll want to pull it all back. But again, this style is about being relaxed.
So don’t slick hair tightly back: let it fall somewhat naturally.
5. Next grab a 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide curling iron and begin curling 1 inch wide sections, always turning the curling iron away from your face. If you’ve got layers, try curling the shorter pieces toward your face to add a little natural-looking variation and volume.
is getting married this weekend and I opted to do my own hair for the wedding. When I decided on that, I didn’t realize that all of the other bridesmaids would be getting their hair “done” at the salon and I would be the only one attempting to look “done” on my own. So now I’m in crisis mode, trying to find the best way to create an updo that is easy to recreate. I know I want to wear my hair up because the wedding is outside and I don’t want to have to battle the elements. It would probably be easiest just to straighten my hair and wear it down but since my hair is naturally wavy, chances are it would frizz up mighty quickly. I had decided on wearing a bun because of my new found friend, Goody Spin Pin, but adding a bit of pizazz will help everything look more polished. So I’m going to add in a braid.
I found this great compilation picture of braided updos over at Hair.ph and I’m going to use it for inspiration:
By adding in a simple braid to garnish the sides of your hair, you can transform a normal bun to something red-carpet worthy. So here is how I’m going to create my hairstyle step-by-step:
Step 1: First I’m going to separate the portion of hair that I plan on braiding. It will start at my front part line and be about two inches thick. I will pin that atop my hair and save it for the end.
Step 2: Next I will use my 1″ curling iron and curl the rest of my hair in about 1 inch sections to give it body and depth, hairspraying each section as I go.
Case in point: The unique and unutterable agony of a bad hair day. For many women (and men!), the best way to battle a bad hair day and ensure a sleek, beautiful style is to invest in a high quality styling tool that will tame curls, vanquish frizzies, and generally leave you looking like a million bucks.
? Some people swear by their GHD flat irons, while others are die-hard CHI advocates, and still others feel naked without their BaByliss. It can definitely be confusing, but if you find a flat iron you like that has the following qualities, you’re set:
Adjustable Settings. A flat iron with adjustable heat settings is a must-have.
One size does not fit all when it comes to heat, and while you want the plates to be hot, you should also be able to lower the heat a little when necessary. The best strategy is to use the lowest possible setting that will still effectively straighten your hair. All of the best flat irons have this feature, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find.
In fact, metal plates can literally fry your locks, leading to breakage. Even if the damage isn’t that drastic, you’ll still be left with dry, frizzy, damaged hair – basically, the exact opposite of what you wanted when you bough a flat iron in the first place! Choosing an iron with ceramic or tourmaline-infused plates will give you a soft, shiny finish. But make sure the plates are 100% ceramic, not just metal coated with a ceramic finish. (Again, if the flat iron is made by a reputable manufacturer, this shouldn’t be a problem.)
Luckily, with most straighteners, you get what you pay for, so if you invest a little extra you can safely expect a high-performance flat iron . You should also find out whether your flat iron comes with a warranty; many do, and if your flat iron happens to break, you may be able to get it repaired or replaced at no additional cost.
As with any significant beauty purchase, a little research goes a long way toward ensuring that you’ll be able to enjoy decidedly fabulous hair days for many years to come. What kind of straightener do you prefe
This is probably because I’ve been blessed with hair that just never had many issues; it’s thick, straight and healthy with little to no frizziness – the definition of “wash and go” hair. I’ve always chosen my shampoo based largely on how it smelled in the bottle, and if the accompanying conditioner made it extra soft, that was a nice bonus.
If you’ve ever wanted your hair to smell like minty gum without actually having minty gum in your hair, you will love this.
Actually using the shampoo was an interesting experience for me. Ignore what it says on the Queen Helene site – this stuff doesn’t lather. (That’s because it’s free from lots of nasty additives that can damage your hair, but still.) Instead of diluting it in water, I used a really small amount – like a few drops – and applied
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always felt like I had two choices when it came to buying makeup: I could go low-end (i.e., drugstore) or I could go high-end (i.e., department stores/Sephora). Drugstore makeup is super affordable and easy to come by, but higher-end products are usually better quality and better for my skin – not to mention the invariably sexy packaging.
…plus the $5 I paid for a 1-year membership to the “Beauty Club”
I decided to take the plunge and get a club card because there are tons of discounts exclusive to club members listed on the website; plus, they gave me a $5 coupon good on any purchase during the month of October, so it’ s like my member
As for the awesomeness of my purchases, I’m thinking of doing a series of individual reviews, because seriously, they’re all great. The Palladio powder foundation, in particular, is so much better than the Neutrogena Mineral Sheers I’ve been using – and it was about $5 cheaper!
In conclusion, if you haven’t ventured into a beauty supply store
I am a huge fan of a messy bun. Maybe it stems from my days of dance classes growing up or maybe it comes from not always taking the time to “do” my hair every morning. Whatever it is, most days you can find me with my hair in a bun. I have quite the assortment of bobby pins of all shapes, styles and colors….and now I don’t know what to do with them….
The package comes with two spin pins but since my hair is so thin, I’ve only needed to use one to keep my bun in place. One pin! Normally I use five or 6 bobby pins and they fall out throughout the day and I have to constantly restyle. But with the Spin Pin I take my hair, twirl it into a bun and then take my Spin Pin and twist it up into the bun from the bottom like it’ s a cork
And I’m done. It is unbelievably simple and holds into place remarkably well. Women with thicker hair – I’m looking at you, Melissa – will probably need to use both pins but, still, I’m pretty sure you’re going to love it. Plus! You aren’t limited to just creating a “messy bun” – you can do several different up-dos with ease. I have several weddings to attend in the next few months…guess how I’m doing my hair….
Has anyone else tried the Spin Pin yet? Are you loving it as much as me? Or did it not work for you? I’m curious! Let us know with a comment…
Did you ever want to experiment with different shades of makeup without the hassle of cleanup? Or you simply didn’t have time to explore the endless options? Well, now you can explore endless makeup and hair looks right from your computer! Yes, that’s right, your computer. Ladies, now, you can see how you look with a makeover, without actually getting a makeover. You c an prevent
So shooting recently wrapped on the final Harry Potter film, and it’s not surprising that the young stars of the series might want to do something a little “out there” to celebrate their newfound freedom.
That pretty much sums up my feelings about the latest hair color craze, a brown/blonde hybrid that has been inelegantly dubbed “bronde” by professional colorist/Shear Genius judge Kim Vo, who enthusiastically declared, “If blonde and brown were to have a love child, it would be bronde!” when asked about the new trend.
Keep the rest of your makeup and accessories to an absolute minimum (I think Salma could have added some red polish without going over the top, but she looks lovely with nude nails too), and you’re ready for some hot summer nights!
Shampowder review – which I largely agree with, by the way – provided a basic rundown of the product, its promises and how well it delivers on them, I figured I would use my turn at the LatestBeauty pulpit to answer another burning dry shampoo question you might have: How does Shampowder compare to Tresemme’s Fresh Start Dry Shampoo, which I snatched up for less than $2 at the drugstore? Read on for the details of this heated beauty battle…
EASE OF USE: Fresh Start is dispensed in a spray can, which – as Meagan mentioned – is pretty standard when it comes to dry shampoos.
Shampowder, on the other hand, comes in a cute little tube with a brush for more targeted application. I like that the tube is clear, so you can see how much Shampowder you have left, I love how the bristles are protected when you close the cap, and I love the portability. I ‘ll admit that the brush application did take a little getting used to
Personally, I think it’s somewhat baby powder-esque, but a lighter, more sophisticated version of baby powder. The Fresh Start isn’t terrible, but it’s also a little odd and takes some getting used to. Shampowder smells great from the beginning, and it won’t overwhelm you if
OIL-ABSORBING ABILITY: Okay, I have to be honest here…I haven’t been using the Fresh Start a whole lot lately. Why? Because I keep reaching for the Shampowder instead! It’s so much better at absorbing oil and adding subtle body without forcing you to sit there while it soaks in and then brush it through a million times until the white foam disappears (if you’re lucky). Mineral pigments in Shampowder mean that it’s tailored to match your hair color (blonde, black or brown/red), and the fine texture means that it’s absorbed instantly into your hair.
PRICE: Finally, we have the little matter of the price tag to consider. Tresemme’s dry shampoo sells for around $6.99 (or less, if you can find a deal or you have a coupon – like I said, I got mine for just $1.34). Shampowder, however, retails for $15.99 on the Buttercream Cosmetics website. That makes Shampowder more than twice as expensive. However, I do feel like the quality you get is much higher, and the price tag seems fair.
In seconds, you look like you just stepped out of the salon!”
I am a bit fascinated with the concept of dry shampoo so I was eager to try out Shampowder, sent to us by the lovely folks at Buttercream Cosmetics. My interest was even more piqued when I saw the form of the dry shampoo: Instead of being dished out by a spray can like most dry shampoos I’ve tried, it came in a cute little powder brush. It looked like makeup and I instantly knew this was going to be different. What really intrigued me though was the fact that the inventor of Shampowder, Jayne Polan, says that she uses it almost everyday and only washes her hair every 5 to 7 days. That is a long time to go without a shampoo and water cleansing….was I up to the challenge
There are two things that I really like about Shampowder:
The applicator makes it really easy to target the oily parts of your hair and is super convenient to store in your purse for whenever you need it. The portability of the product goes a long way in its favor. I especially like how the silver portion protects the brush bristles when you put the lid back on for storage. When you try Shampowder out, you’ll know what I’m talking about. I h ate putting
a lid back on a brush and crimping the bristles – a personal pet peeve of mine.
The scent is a light vanilla that is pleasant and in no way overwhelming. The smell of dry shampoos has been a major reason I haven’t used them more regularly. I tried out Ojon at one point and learned an expensive lesson about smelling something before you buy it. It stunk so badly that I used it once and had to take a shower. Not so with Shampowder. I am very sensitive to smells – I can’t even wear perfume – and the scent of Shampowder is very subtle and noninvasive.
As far as effectiveness goes, Shampowder can really increase the volume of your hair which is one reason I like dry shampoo. My hair is pretty limp on its own and Shampowder definitely kicked it up a notch. I tried to go a week without washing my hair, like Jayne does. The first day of not washing, I was really pleased. My hair looked clean and it didn’t feel yucky. The second day of not washing, my hair felt okay in the morning with its second Shampowder application. By midday I was starting to feel a little antsy about it though and threw it back into a ponytail.
Sometimes a beauty synchronicity occurs here at the Latest Beauty headquarters. Completely independent of one another, Melissa and I were checking out Tresemme products…but we had no idea that either of us were. While she was testing out their new dry shampoo, I was developing a love affair with Tresemme’s Heat Tamer Spray. Here’s how it happened:
I had just gotten the best haircut of my life and I was looking for ways to keep my “fresh from the salon” look going. I was paying careful attention to what products my stylist used on my hair so that I could recreate the look at home. I had already invested in a CHI flat iron so that I could straighten as well as he does. And I started taking the time to blow dry my hair with the aid of a round brush. But I still felt like was missing something. I noticed that he sprayed on some sort of protectant before flat-ironing my hair and I decided that is what I needed. I wanted an affordable drugstore option so I went to Target and began my search.
I was a bit overwhelmed. There are A LOT of products available to protect your hair from heat and I wasn’t sure which one would be best. I ended up choosing Tresemme’s Heat Tamer for two reasons:
1. It smelled really good.
2. It was under $5.
I decided, if anything, at least I wasn’t spending too much if I didn’t love it.
…I love it.
My hair feels so soft when I use it. And I use it whenever I’m using any heat appliances - hair dryer, flat iron or curling iron. And I recently was on set and the hair stylist commented on how good my hair smelled and then she demanded to know what products I used. I was quick to rave about my Tresemme find. I have very fine hair that is “volume-challenged” so I was worried that using another product might weigh it down…but that’s just not the case. I’ve been having some of my best hair days since I made this little discovery.
Do you have a protective product that you can’t live without? Tell me about it!
* Tresemme did not send us products or compensate for these reviews - both the heat tamer spray and dry shampoo were bought by us and independently reviewed.
So I finally got around to using my Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo, the drugstore dry shampoo that I’ve been obsessing about for the past week or so. As a dry shampoo newbie, I was smitten with the idea of being able to go an extra day without washing my hair but not having to worry about greasy roots or unpleasant odors - plus, I heard that spray-on shampoo can be an excellent way to add a little texture to even clean hair, and since I’m always looking for ways to mess up my (occasionally boring) straight hair, I was definitely on board. So how did my experience measure up to my expectations? I’m happy to report that I really love this product…with one major caveat!
The first time I used the Fresh Start Dry Shampoo, it had been around 24 hours since my last proper “wet” shampoo. I sprayed it on as per the bottle instructions (really easy to do, except for the part where you have to shake the bottle vigorously between each and every spritz - argh!), let it sit for 2 minutes to absorb oils, and brushed it through. (This does require a thorough brushing, but I didn’t notice any white residue leftover when I was done.) The smell was pleasant, although not overwhelmingly awesome, but what I really loved was how thick and manageable it made my hair! I could tease the crown! I could pin it back, and it would stay! I could swoop it up into a lovely ponytail! Again, my hair is usually too soft and swingy to be styled, so I was an instant dry shampoo convert.
The next day, I decided to tempt fate and try the Tresemme again. Now, I have no idea what went wrong - are you not supposed to use dry shampoos two days in a row without a proper washing in between? Does the product build up at your roots? Or did I simply use too much? In any event, this was not the happy walk in the park I had experienced before! I had to brush my hair so many times to remove all of the chalky residue that my brush became positively caked with dry shampoo. I actually had to stop and wash my hairbrush in order to continue. Not good! I did apply more than I had the previous day, so I’m going to blame this completely on user error and say that, with a little common sense and proper application techniques, Tresemme’s Fresh Start Dry Shampoo is a great product for the price. I can’t compare it to other dry shampoos, but I was definitely pleased with my (initial) experience, and I look forward to using it again.
If you’re thinking of picking up a bottle for yourself, you should still be able to score the $1.34 Walgreens deal if you print out the Tresemme Fresh Start coupon and head into the store before the week is out!
If you’re thinking of checking out Tresemme’s Fresh Start Dry Shampoo, which I previewed last week, then get thee to a Walgreen’s immediately! The drugstore chain is currently offering a sale on all Tresemme hair care products - they’re marked down to 3 for $10, which comes out to $3.34 apiece. If you print out this coupon, which gives you an additional $2 off any Fresh Start product, you can walk away with a brand new, full size bottle of dry shampoo for just $1.34! I bought mine today, and plan to review it later this week, but I can guarantee you won’t find a better deal than this. What are you waiting for?
