I have a confession... I don't shampoo my hair very often. Cue the gasps!
Skipping washes is less taboo nowadays, so my audacious confession is not so scary, I'm one of millions and this of course means the rise dry shampoo. Based on recent research, they days of constant washing are coming to an end, and for good reason.
Washing one's hair regularly could mean a dryer, flaky scalp and hair breakage. For colored hair it also means fading pigment, leading to more coloring and of course, more damage.
Speaking of which, the other day as I was about to spray my usual dry shampoo, I read over the ingredients. Butane. Propane. Alcohol. Chloride... Um?
While these ingredients have been tested and show no "damaging" effects to human health... why would I want lighter fluid on my head?? Aside from the lighter fluid aspect, alcohol and chloride are extremely drying. Personally, I have had trouble with dry, breaking hair my whole life- so this doesn't sit well with me.
At this point it was official, I was on the hunt for an inexpensive, high quality dry shampoo.
What is it
Verb, the Australian based company just began selling their items at Sephora, so I was curious- especially since all of their products are under $20. I liked the look right off the bat because it doesn't come in an aerosol can, so I'm thinking no butane or propane.
Why we like it
As it turns out, the ingredient list goes beyond the light fluid - Verb is an all natural company and come to find out this dry shampoo is almost entirely fruit extract. Score!
How we tried it
I actually tried this on just washed hair, which gave me a messy, textured look. Usually after I wash my hair sits flat, but this made me look as though I got a blow out! Double score!
Did I mention this product also smells great? I imagine from the plant and fruit extracts but it's delightful, I can't wait to see what other items this company has to offer.
