Second-day hair don’t care!

Err…make that third-day hair don’t care.


OK, fourth-day hair.

Yes, fourth-day hair. last week I ran three days in a row without washing my hair (no judgment) and, dude! — by the last day my roots were janky to the Nth degree.

I was only able to tolerate myself thanks to Tresemme’s new Fresh start Renewing dry Shampoo. I was actually kind of shocked by how well it worked.

Now I’m thinking I might’ve even been able to make it to five-day hair…


Since I got my hair chopped a couple weeks ago, I’ve actually had to — gasp! — style it in the mornings (because I can’t just put it up in a ponytail anymore and forget about it), so to save a little time between shampoos, I’ve been spraying Fresh start on my roots after my morning shower.

It contains oil-absorbing mineral clay and sucks up sweat and funk like a root-sucking hair vacuum!

After using it, my scalp definitely feels less greasy, but doesn’t feel thick or packed with powder, which happens sometimes when I use other dry shampoos. My roots actually feel less dirrrrty when I use this stuff — not as clean as real shampoo, obvs, but all things considered, it’s pretty terrific for two- or three-day hair.

And I love how much it lifts my roots, which flatten and lose volume between shampoo washings, but spraying Fresh start at my roots restores a lot of bounce and movement.

Was ist mehr…

No white roots! The powder is virtually invisible. It comes out of the bottle stark white, so it looks a little scary at first, especially if you have dark hair, but it disappears once massaged in.

This mist is foine! one of the problems I have with a lot of dry shampoos is the spray bottles are weak and don’t cover enough area, but this one has oomph. The spray spreads in a fine mist, sending out a swath of powder to cover a good amount of hair, but it’s still easy to control. It’s quick and easy to use.

The fast-fading fragrance comes on strong. I’d like it more (it’s floral, a mix of white flowers, I’m guessing) if it wasn’t so strong, but it fades quickly.

A weightless wonder. It feels like nothing — zero weight — even after days, and it creates crazy volume at the roots. I really hope Tresemme makes a travel version that I can bring with me on trips.

I almost can’t believe this is only $6 because it seems more like one of those fancy-schmancy $20 dry shampoos. sehr empfehlenswert!

FYI for the bargain hunters, Fresh start is BOGO (buy one get one 50% off) now at Ulta and ulta.com.

I may or may not have said this out loud after watching the season four finale of game of Thrones the other night.

Finally, after YEARS of being behind on the show, I’m all caught up, and I seriously have no idea what to do with myself now, LOL! If you want to chat about the finale, let’s do this.
