As I am starting to finally have more good hair days than bad, I'm interested in keeping the style as long as I can. This translates into me trying to find a dry shampoo that meets my needs:
Easy to apply
Doesn't make hair feel too heavy
Doesn't make scalp feel too dry
It's a lot to ask, but it has to be out there, right? Recently, I got a chance to check out Monimay's Hair Shadz in Copper Red. This powder comes in a dispenser with a brush. There is no nozzle, no shaker, no air blaster. Just a simple brush.
You can control how much product comes out by turning the silver ring at the top of the container. Then you just turn the brush upside down, tap it lightly and begin applying it to your hair. Not only does it act as a dry shampoo and root concealer, it also provides SPF protection for your scalp.

This does a great job concealing my roots, which is a huge concern, considering my hair is growing like a weed and is nowhere near the color I've been sporting for 15 years. Hair Shadz gives a serious amount of color coverage. My hair is actually two tones and this blends the roots to appear as if everything is one color. As far as working as a dry shampoo, it does a nice job. My hair doesn't feel too dry or heavy, which is the issue I have with many dry shampoos. I like my hair to feel like my hair on a good day, not my hair on a hangover day - you know what I mean? This definitely mattifies your hair, like most dry shampoos, so be sure to add a bit of shine back to your hair with your favorite shine spray.
The only downside to this product is the brush. I wish it were retractable so you could put the plastic cap back on without smooshing the brush itself. Other than that small flaw, this works beautifully! UPDATE: Apparently, the brush does goes down, I just haven't been able to figure it out. Which means this product is close to perfect!
Pick it up from dryshampoo.com for $29.95.
