Item of the Day

Aight, let’s get real with each other – sometimes you just don’t feel like washing your hair, right? Maybe you don’t want to get up fifteen minutes earlier in the morning or you’re in a hippie phase or you just don’t want to. Hey, that’s okay. This is a safe space, be free here.

Unfortunately, no one wants to leave the house – especially going to work or meeting friends – looking like a ragamuffin. I feel like I always look like a ragamuffin anyway, but that’s a whole other story and I like to do what I can to at least look like I have it together a little bit. That means I can’t walk around looking as though I’ve just been caught in an oil slick or taken a dunk in a gallon of grease, which means having clean hair.

Dry shampoos have always been a bit of a mystery to me, but I’ve heard rave reviews for the wonders they can work on the unwashed mop. I was skeptical at first, I’ll admit, but then I tried Cake Beauty‘s version and quickly became a believer.

Cake’s Satin Sugar powder is for hair AND body, but I’ve only used it on my hair. It smells delicious (yes, like cake! Lemony vanilla-y cake!) and actually soaks up some of the dirt and grime that builds up in the whole 24 hours since I last showered. Not to mention that it covers up my roots, which is great for my tendency to put things like dyeing my hair off until the situation is dire. I know, I’m not really doing much to help my ragamuffin image, here.

I use the powder for dark hair – duh, ‘cos my hair is dark – but there’s also a powder for lighter shades that I hear is amazing. And for all my health-conscious ladies, it’s paraben free, so that’s a definite drawing point.

It’s a bit pricey at $18, but I also know that I won’t have to shell that out again for a while as a little bit goes a long way with this stuff.
