Happy Wednesday dearies! How was Tuesday for you? Mine was tiring yet super productive! If you follow me on Instagram (@AskMeWhats), I was busy the whole day for a makeup shoot for one of my favorite cosmetics brand Benefit. I will share more about my experience and the makeovers I've done soon! :)
Today, I have an intriguing question I'd love to ask for months but haven't gotten the chance to! It's all about Dry Shampoos. I've seen dry shampoos years ago through reading international beauty blogs 3-4 years ago. I surrendered the idea of using one as I wash my hair regularly and I don't have any problems with greasy hair as my scalp tends to dry instead. just like my skin.
When I got pregnant, my dear highschool bestfriend sent me some post labor survivor stuff! That includes the dry shampoo from Dove which we don't have it locally but she vouched it worked for her!
Why do I need dry shampoo post labor? Not sure if you've heard about the 1 month "no bath nor shower" after labor. I'm not sure if it's a Chinese thing. To those who don't understand what I'm talking about, it's 1 whole month of not taking a bath/shower after giving birth! Imagine how awful I smell and how horrible my hair looks?
The horrible looking part, I don't mind as I do not plan to get out of the house anyways. But, the yucky, icky feel of grease ball hair is too much it can send me to post partum party (and that's a roundtrip!).
Armed with my first dry shampoo ever, I started using Dove Hair Therapy Refresh + Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo.
A lot of you on Instagram asked: "Does it work?'
Well, the invigorating part, YES, but the feeling of "dry scalp"? So far, I didn't get to experience that and I don't blame the product because a week, 2 weeks or a month of no shower is way too much to test this product. PLUS, let's take it to consideration that this product isn't sold locally so this probably works way better in the States or whatever country this dry shampoo is sold.
Back of the can
After taking the Dove Hair Therapy Dry Shampoo a test, I came into a conclusion that a certain product isn't sold in my country because for the fact that the product may not be as effective as where it is originally available from.
Recently, I've seen Asian beauty brands coming up with various Dry Shampoos. (Both photos below taken from Google images)
from Tony Moly
to Etude House
I haven't tried both but I have to be honest, I'm intrigued to give both Asian brands a try and see if they work.
Do you use dry shampoos? If yes, which particular brand and does it work for you?
Any other dry shampoo brands I should give a try?
