Mornings are stressful. I hit snooze five times, shower, put together an outfit, try to do something with my hair, eat some breakfast, do my makeup (can’t skip that!), grab some coffee (or that!), brush my teeth, grab leftovers to eat for lunch, frantically search for my keys/cellphone/wallet, and rush out the door hoping that I look halfway pulled together.
Since I don’t usually manage to squeeze all of those things in; it’s my hair that gets the shaft (terrible pun, I know). It takes a considerable portion of my morning to wrestle my long, easily tangled, color-treated hair into something presentable. But, if I don’t wash my hair every morning, it looks oily and limp. How can a gal keep her hair looking beautiful and healthy, but save previous time?
The answer is René Furterer NATURIA Dry Shampoo ($24, 3.2 oz). René Furterer, French stylist and creator of the first spa for hair, became interested in plants and natural oils at a young age, and later used that knowledge to create hair treatments that were natural, innovative, and effective.
NATURIA Dry Shampoo is one such product. Formulated without parabens, triclosan, sulfates, petro-chemicals or pththalates, this is a safe, convenient, and natural way to freshen up your hair. A unique mixture of rice, cornstarch, clay and silica powders, caraway, basil and peppermint essential oils helps to absorb oil and restore volume to limp locks.
It’s incredibly easy to use. Just give your hair a generous spray (be sure to keep the can at least 10 inches away from your hair), let it sit for two minutes, gently pat with a towel and then brush your hair. It applies evenly without leaving an ashy cast to my dark brown hair. Even when I accidentally spray it too close to my hair, the dry shampoo is easily dispersed by rubbing my hands in my hair.
• easy to use aerosol spray
• applies evenly
• kept my hair looking clean and fresh all day long
• no problems with the nozzle clogging
• a slight tint prevents hair from looking ashy
• a bit spendy, although comparable to other high-end dry shampoos
• it does have a strong scent (though my boyfriend didn’t mind it at all!)
Overall, I’d say this is definitely a product that’s worth giving a try! It’s quick, it’s easy, it avoids the need for excessive washing and heat, and keeps hair looking fresh and clean all day. It gets 3 out of 5 stars from me.
