I’ve talked before about my desire to shower less. I tend to shower about twice a week or after really gross activities. I like to utilize something I’ve come to call a “whore’s bath” (excuse my French). Basically in between showers I grab a washrag and wash my girly bits and underarms and sometimes my feet. I don’t like to shower unless my hair gets gross. Of course, the summer has me bathing more because those hot hot days make my hair oily faster.
Not anymore! I was offered a chance to “try it dry” by experimenting with Batiste Dry Shampoo. I’ve used basic corn starch powders in my hair before in emergencies to soak up some oil, but Batiste is made with rice starch, which is light on your hair so it won’t weigh it down or leave a heavy residue. Batiste offers this concept in a spray can that has the whole process simplified. I went from “Dang, I shouldn’t have slept in!” to “Oh snap watch out fools!” in less than 5 minutes. My first experience was on a day I overslept when I needed to go to a photography appointment for a nursing shoot. I couldn’t go take pictures looking like a bum, of course.
The first thing I noticed about Batiste Dry Shampoo is that it came out deathly white. I was very scared at first, but it rubbed right into my roots no problem and didn’t leave any residue on my hair so it literally looked like I had showered earlier in the day. I was surprised at the volume it added to my two-day hair and I felt pretty confident walking out into the world accidentally skipping my shower. I do recommend washing your hands immediately afterwards because it does leave some white on dark colored clothing. I had to change shirts quickly before heading out the door.
I now use Batiste on two-day old hair and shower on day three. I like being able to keep my shower schedule to twice a week even though the summer heat likes to make me suffer. 🙂
Batiste Dry Shampoo comes in lots of scents, and some even have tint to them if you have red, blonde, or chocolate brown colors in your hair. You can find the makers of Batiste on Facebook and Twitter.
