Greasers were cool in the 50’s but since I’m not in the fifties nor am I a member of Sha Na Na, my greasy hair just isn’t cute. I have been plagued as long as I can remember with the need or should I say that I must wash my hair daily or it’s oil slick city. Now I’m not too lazy but I don’t always feel like washing my hair 365 days a year either so recently I made a new purchase.
I popped into my local Sephora the other day and picked up Frederik Fekkai’s Au Naturel Dry Shampoo. I chose the Fekkai line because the ingredient list was cleaner than others dry shampoos and I wanted a talc free version along with being free of the other following ingredients:
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
The description states the Dry Shampoo employs cotton fibers, rice starch, and cornstarch to effectively eliminate excess oil from the hair. Now when I first tried it I thought this doesn’t work. I was going to take it back but I figured I should give it one more try. The second time I gave it a whirl on some pretty darn greasy hair and I was very pleased. I woke up late to get ready for work, had to hustle and the dry shampoo was my only hope of making it on time. Well I have to say it really came through not only did my hair look oil free and fresh but it stayed that way until a late night cocktail.
The key to making this product work is to not be light handed. The first time it didn’t work because I just hadn’t applied enough, it takes a hair amount to cut the through the oil. I start by working in the product around the frame of my face, massaging it in with my fingertips and then working it back through the length of the hair. I would say avoid your ends though, no reason to waste product on hair that’s not oily.
