Hair model Tabs the Cat…
I’ve been wearing my normally wavy hair straight lately and waiting a few days between washes to extend the life of my blowouts. To prevent my scalp from getting too funky with excess oil, I’ve been reaching for Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo, my fave dry shampoo, which also gives my roots a nice lift.
The problem: Naturia costs $24.
Ouch! Time to find a less expensive alternative…
And maybe I have. Suave Professional Dry Shampoo refreshes hair “as well as Rene Furterer” — at least that’s what it says on the side of the bottle.
Not even considering the fact that it only costs $3 (compared to $24?), the stuff is pretty good. Then when you DO consider the price, it’s downright amazing! First, there’s how fast it works. Some dry shampoos leave a white cast on my dark hair, particularly around the roots, and take forever to work in and brush out. Suave Pro deposits what looks like a bit of white powder on my roots when it’s applied, but after a few swipes with my brush the white powder disappears. Because it works so fast, the product has been saving me a a few minutes every time I use it instead of Naturia.
Suave says mineral clay helps the product absorb oil AND odor. Now, I wouldn’t want to wait so long between washes that I could smell my hair, but I guess it’s nice to know that Suave’s got my back.
I think I’m partial to Naturia’s floral fragrance, but my nose likes Suave’s light citrus scent too. My roots do get a little more lift with Naturia, but again — $3 compared to $24.
PRICE: $3 for a 5-oz. bottle

How was the rest of your Tuesday?
Mine wasn’t bad. Right now I’m just settling down to re-watch last night’s episode of Being Human (yep, it was THAT good). Did you watch it? Pretty great, right? I mean, as far as vampire/werewolf stories go.
What’s up with all the vampire politics anyway? It must be a side effect of immortality and playing mind games with the same folks, century after century. Forget that. Sign me up for team werecat instead!
What are you up to tonight?
