Dang, Jonathan, where you been all my life? I wish I’d had Jonathan Green Rootine Dry Shampoo Brush-On Hair Powder ($19) with me on my last few trips because it would have saved two things: 1) time and 2) space in my luggage.
What’s a dry shampoo? Seriously, they’re liked sliced bread, or remote controls. They temporarily take the place, in a matter of speaking, of regular shampoo and usually come as absorbent powders in jars or aerosol cans. The powders refresh the scalp, add volume to the roots and extend blow-outs by absorbing oil and product buildup. When I don’t want to shower (it happens) or don’t have time for a regular shampoo/conditioning with water, dry shampoos come in quite handy!
Available in three shades — Light (for blonde, white or gray hair), Dark (black, brown or red hair) and Black (for black hair) — Green Rootine Dry Shampoo doesn’t contain any synthetic compounds, parabens or petrochemicals, and it’s also fragrance-free and safe for color-treated hair.
I gave the Black shade a try a few days ago and like how the attached brush makes it easy to apply, even at my roots. The whole thing is like a self-contained shower replacement that fits easily into a makeup bag.
The Light and Dark shades are available now at Ulta, but Black doesn’t drop on counters until next month (they’re taking pre-orders for it, though, on jonathanproduct.com).
What do you think about dry shampoos? Have you ever used one before?
