  1. How do you feel about Dry Shampoos to freshen your hair in between washes? If you like them is there any brand you recommend and how do you recommend to use them? Thank you!

    1. Hey Chenoe123: Dry shampoos have their place in the hair world. I recommend Naturia by Rene Furterer Paris. You shake well and then spray at your roots. It feels slightly powdery, but it absorbs extra oils and gives you added volume. A 3.2 oz aersol can cost around $24 USD. I hope this was the type of dry shampoo that you were referring to. There are some wet "rinseless" shampoos out there, but they are mainly for patients confined to bed rest.
