Fix greasy hair in a flash

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

We’ve all done it at some point… come home too dronk too late to hop in the shower and woken up with nasty, greasy hair and min time to sort it out before work. Drat.

Fortunately, reviving your locks in seconds is all to easy if you’ve got a nifty bottle o’ dry shampoo. Personally, I’m crazy about Batiste dry shampoo, R54,95, exclusive to Clicks.

Batiste dry shampoo – the busy girl’s bestie.

Available in five different scents, just a few spritzes on your roots will absorb any grease and leave your hair smelling clean and fresh – even if it isn’t.

I tried the Tropical variant last night and really liked its scent. I reckon it’s supposed to be reminiscent of pina coladas, but to me it smells like Brand New Barbie. (You know the smell girls… it’s the one you experience the moment you rip open that box and take in the deliciously sweet scent o’ Mattel… And yes, I know you must think I’m mental, but go give it a sniff and you’ll enjoy an instant flash back to Christmas morning circa the 80’s…)

I also like that, unlike other dry shampoos, Batiste didn’t leave my ‘do looking grey.

Next time you’re in Clicks, go take a look. However, if you’re really in a fix, try sprinkling a bit of baby powder on your roots. Just be carefully that you don’t get any of it on your clothes or your colleagues might think you’re suffering from a nasty case of dandruff! Ick!
