Wash it Out: Shampoo Alternatives
But the good news is that drugstore brands like Tresemme and Suave have their own versions. The reviews on TotalBeauty.com and Sephora.com vary wildly depending on the product, so it will take some trial and error to find one that's right for your hair's texture and color. Some dry shampoos leave a powdery residue or stinky smell behind; some cater to specific hair colors. When you're traveling or on the go and don't have time to shower, why not give one a try? Or if you're really intent on saving money and the environment, mix up your own shampoo with baking soda. Again, depending on your hair's length and texture, it takes a bit of experimenting to get the balance right, but start by mixing one tablespoon of baking soda in a small amount of water. Wet hair and work the mixture into your roots and let sit for a few minutes. Rinse, then add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a cup of water and pour it evenly over your hair. Let it sit for a few minutes and rinse. Frizzy hair may require less baking soda and more vinegar; use less vinegar if your hair gets greasy.
