dry shampoo and powders not just for your grandma!

Powdery Blonde Hair on Kate Winslet for April 2011 UK great does she look!

There are a lot of new dry shampoos on the market......makes you wonder it because no one is washing their hair anymore....all too busy....or do they have another use..... traditionally it is used when your hair is a little oily and you don't have time to wash it you just spray some dry shampoo on your hair at the roots and hey presto.....fresh non oily hair!

Well the answer is...they have another use.  If you have fine fly away hair and you want your hair to have a bit more grit and grab - in other words - hang onto the style a bit longer then maybe try spraying it first - at the roots -  with a dry shampoo.    I like Kevin Murphy's Fresh Hair at about $30 it's more pricey than others.  Buy from

Powdery or matt looking hair is really popular in the mags at the moment.   One that I like is OSiS Dust It - Mattifying Powder by Schwarzkopf.   It gives a soft matt look.  Its similiar to the popular Bumble & Bumble powder  that has been really popular overseas - its half the price though.   

This powder will give that "second day" look and feel instantly.  Will add great volume; works especially great on fine hair!  Really good for creating that bed head look.  At around $20 its good value - buy from

Direction for powder use:
  • sprinkle a small amount of powder into palms and rub together
  • rake through hair and lift into style for matt finish and natural touch
  • for extra root volume apply directly to roots
  • for extra separation, apply more powder in small amounts where needed
