I know you said you don't have time, but making a sandbox for her (of course with parents permission) would be awesome, and they could keep it for years. Plus you could always update it each year- repaint the sides, add decoration, etc as a birthday gift.

From Amazon: A turtle that shows the constellations. My baby brother had one and loved it- and my parents enjoyed having a pretty night light that they could use as a learning tool.

Also this keepsake kit will allow the parents to make a new Christmas ornament of their girl's first Christmas, plus they can make an extra one for the favorite grandma. Yes, this isn't really for the daughter, but lets be honest; she'll play with the box and be completely overjoyed.

If you want to really make the daughter happy, this sensory tub is AMAZING. Just a tub, you say? Oh no. This can be filled with sand, small pebbles, noodles, water, beans, etc to fully engage her sensory experience. I teach with a program that has one-year-olds and they go crazy when these tubs are brought out. You can even make it into a cute basket by including things like this and this and still stay in your budget! :)

For me? I'd like this so I can sleep in a few mornings :) Good luck to you in your quest for the perfect present!

You mentioned that you dont want to "weight it down with product" and how im interpreting that is that you don't want it to look greasy or over-worked. This is fine, it's my same preference.
If you have fine hair, do the following with your head hanging down. This will help volumize your roots while you style. Keep product away from your roots. If you have regular/thick hair, do this upright.
Here's what you do -- Invest in 3 things --> moisturizer, sealer, styler.
I've tried literally hundreds of dollars worth of fucking useless products. Here is what i've found works best for me.

  • STEP ONE - Moisturizer: Davines AIO Hair Lotion or LUSH R&B Lotion This will moisturize your hair without making it look greasy and weighed down. Basically this will help accentuate/define the natural texture of your hair. Try keeping it away from your roots otherwise your roots will start to look greasy. You dont want this.

  • STEP TWO - Sealer: Argan oil it shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg. I find this to be a very good brand that lasts you fucking FOREVER. What argan oil does is, in addition to being very good for your hair cuticle health, it takes that moisturizer you just used and seals it into your hair. Plus it adds a little shine and a little bounce. Apply it by using LITERALLY TWO DROPS in your fingertips and rub your fingers together and just apply it mostly to the ends of your hair. Once you've done that, use that last remaining shine left on your fingers/palm to scrunch your hair, kinda like you did with the towel. Keep the oil away from your scalp. It WILL make you look greasy.

  • STEP THREE - Styler: This will depend almost entirely on your hair type, but after tons of trial and error... ive found Oribe Creme for Style works great at creating hold, sealing in moisture, and still giving you hair you can run your fingers through. Its on the pricier side, in my opinion, so ive linked you to the small size if you wanna try first before committing to a large size. What i do is kind of what you did with the STEP ONE moisturizer. Squeeze out a SMALL, a quarter of an inch of product, into your fingers and rub between your fingers. Now run it through your hair, keeping it away from the roots. If you've got wavy or curly hair, do more of a scrunching motion. This is the part of the styling where you try to put your hair into a position you like. I like my hair parted on the left and pushed back, so this is what i do. Once ive brushed it back using my fingers (NOT a brush), i just walk away from the mirror and go on about my day. It is at this point, until your hair completely dry, that you just stop fucking with your hair. Dont touch it. dont move it, dont brush it. Just let it be. Once it's dry, you are free to let your hair fall forward, a little into your face or whatever. Because you pushed it back while it was drying, you'll have some nice volume at the roots, when it falls forward.

    So yeah, this may seem overwhelming, but you can cherry-pick what you are willing to do. Honestly, aside from the head massage, i literally only do the oil/hairwash/style thing once every 5 or 6 days. So it really doesnt demand that much time.

    I figure while im here, i'll also address some things i often see people commenting:

    F.A.Q (my opinions as answers)

  • If i dont wash my hair every day, it gets so greasy: I cant begin to tell you how much damage you're causing your hair by washing every day. My secret weapon for refreshing oily hair and giving it another 3 or 4 days of wear is a dry shampoo. Batiste works great, and it comes in different colors, so if you have dark or red hair, you dont have to worry about your roots looking powdery and white. Hell, in a pinch i'll even just use a small amount of baby powder massaged into the roots of my hair. Wash your hair less.

  • Dont cut your hair: This is bad advice all around, in my opinion. To keep your hair happy, you have to be mindful of split ends you may get. Going to the stylist and asking them to LITERALLY ONLY cut off your split ends every two months or so is great and should only run you about $15. They wont remove any length (be firm when saying that you only need split end removal) and your hair will constantly look healthy.

  • The awkward phase is inevitable: This is and isn't true. It is absolutely true if you just let your hair grow with absolutely zero styling from a professional. This is totally fine to do! You may look like a hair bubble for a few months, but you will get longer hair in what seems like a shorter amount of time, and then once you're at a happy length, you can go get a hair cut and the stylist will give you an actual shape to your cut. HOWEVER, the route that i chose is the longer path -- but the more "stylish" path -- which means that every 4 months or so, ive gone to the stylist so at every single stage of growth, ive had a proper shape/cut. This means that my hair length isnt as long as it would be otherwise, but the great thing is that i've been able to see the possible style for my hair at every single length.

  • My hair is boring: This is pretty easily remedied! Like with anything else, consult a professional. Ask any long haired friends you have, whose hair you like, who their stylist is and book an appointment! They might recommend layers, they might recommend parting your hair differently, etc. Be firm in telling them you're not interested in getting rid of length, but if your hair is fine, maybe adding volume, or if you have a SHIT TON of hair (first, congrats) maybe its a matter of taking away some weight. If you've got hair-goals, show them a picture of someone whose hair you admire. Maybe a Hemsworth or something.

    Okay...i hope this helped at all!

Invest in a good dry shampoo to keep oil at bay. I like Living Proof. It's pricey but well worth it. To look a it more "adult" and put together, I'll use a hair clip like this or this rather than a hair tie. Still out of the way but a bit more elegant. Also, a hair stylist can help you with a look that is elegant and "adult" but still easy to work with. Get trims so your hair can stay healthy.

What I do is put a wavy hair mousse in my hair when it's damp, blow dry my roots for volume and go eat breakfast/do makeup/fold laundry/whatever for about 10-15minutes, my hair dries fast. Then when it's all dry I have some nice waves and put in dry shampoo to soak any oil up, run a serum through the ends for some shine and to keep fly aways down and clip it back. Sounds like a lot but it takes me about 5-7 minutes of hands-on time. Also I find that the more I take care of my skin, the more rested and healthy I look. I use a good moisturizer at night and a hydrating eye cream. A little under eye concealer and mascara goes a loooooong way in helping my self confidence when going out in public.

Invest in yourself. It's not "high maintenance" to make sure you have clean, neat and healthy hair. Taking care of your skin is equally important in my opinion. I feel so much more productive and organized when I take just ten minutes to put myself together in the morning.

Products I like:
hair clips I haven't used these particular ones, just this style.
favorite dry shampoo
argan oil serum
mousse for volume
love this face moisturizer with spf
this eye cream works wonders for me

Your hair sounds a bit similar to mine tho a bit finer and more prone to be weighed down with synthetic products; that was very intuitive of you to notice! The major pitfall of common store brands is that theyre filled with sulfates, silcone and parabens. They will cling to your hair shafts and build up over time leaving your hair waxy and heavy.

If youre an ingredient reader look at like the top 5 ingredients; you can usually spot the bad synthetic stuff pretty fast. For sulfates, look for ingredients that end in “-ate”, this typically indicates that its a sulfate. Silicones normally end in “-cone”, “-xane”, and “-col”. And parabens can usually be spotted by ending in “paraben”.

Some general advice would definitely be: 1. Dont crank the shower temp up to max. Hot water only makes skin drier which leads to more compensation in oil production. 2. Dont wash your hair every day. you can shower everyday, by all means I encourage it! But save the shampoo for every other day. Most excessive oil problems are actually because youre stripping your hair dry and your scalp is over compensating.

As far as some product recommendations! I would get a nice Clarifying Shampoo ; These are best used maybe once a week if you have thinner hair, tho I have been known to use mine more frequently if my hair feels truly disgusting which sometimes hair just do that. These are good for stripping away the weeks build up of grime and sweat and dead skin. your hair will feel very squeaky after using this stuff. Always condition and leave it in for at least 5 minutes before rinsing.

A good Dry Shampoo for those days you dont have time to shower is a God Send or simply to spruce up your hair on No-Poo days. Remember to comb your hair after applying it cause this stuff can really cake up on your hair if you start to sweat.

Since my hair is so short its really hard to follow most of the instructions of hair regimens (theres a big to do about focusing on your roots versus hair shaft in most hair regimens) so I tend to use primarily Co-Washes! I dont have tight curls or coils but Ive found they are very effective at cleaning my hair, moisturizing it, but not stripping it so much that I end up back where I started. Theyre basically conditioners with a few of the sudsy bits of shampoos mixed in. Theyre similar to a 2-in-1 but they err on the side of the conditioner rather than the shampoo. They are much better for healthy hair and scalp.

A couple of my favorite cowashes are: NYM (Im very fond of this brand XD); Mop Top (if you dont mind a brand thats not in stores) or As I Am (This is the only CoWash I do not follow up with a light conditioner as coconut oil is very heavy on my hair).

With thinner hair its best to try and avoid products with heavier oils that are slow to absorb like Coconut and Olive oils; I would only suggest these if you are going to do something after your shower that will involve intense heat like curling or straightening irons. Products with lighter oils like Argan and Grapeseed will absorb more quickly and wont leave thin hair feeling greasier but will still moisturize it. Jojoba Oil tends to have properties of both and is a good middle ground.

Even tho I use co-washes, there are still surfactants in them and a light conditioning afterwards works wonders for sealing the deal. My fave conditioners usually have really light oils in them because my hair is prone to getting weighed down: Argan Oil Conditioner (my current go to particularly because it has more of a cedar wood and patchouli scent instead of typically floral scents); Argan Oil and Lavender (this one can leave a rather strong girly floral scent in your hair but its absolutely lovely); Leave In Spray or Leave in Milk (And if your hair is being an absolute pain about being weighed down, never underestimate a nice light leave in spray or milk. A little bit goes a long way for conditioning temperamental hair).


The best part is that a lot of these tips can also be applied to the skin of your face too. Too oily? Your showers may be too hot or the soap/astringent you are using may be to HARSH and are stripping everything away, good and bad. Try something lighter like a Toner. Moisturizing after washing your face can be important. Some toners also moisturize lightly (like Rose Water Toners) but if youre still feeling a bit dry, light moisturizers made for facial skin can be a nice way to finish up a shower routine!

Also Always remember to wash you pillow cases regularly!


The most important thing to remember is that changing the chemistry of your hair and skin routine can take a bit of time to settle in so you might not see a change immediately. Id say give it at least 1-2 weeks to really see if things start clearing up and if they dont keep track of the changes and adjust and try different products. its a bit of a pain in the wallet, believe me, I went thru half a dozen or so different products before I narrowed it down to a couple things: coconut oil was too heavy for my hair and jojoba oil was to slow absorbing for my skin but Argan Oil and Rose Water are a true delight; Im allergic to Salicylic Acid and thats a huge ingredient in a lot of products and acne medications; and my skin is Combination so it can vacillate wildly between oily and dry states. I did find a nice set of products tho that get the job done eventually! I hope you can find some faves yourself!

u/whatsadrivein · 315 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I don't use Asian hair products, but if you're in the US, I'd be happy to DM you my American recs.

Edit: Other people are listing American products, so I'll go ahead.

On days you wash your hair

1.) Wash. (I have oily hair, so I like Kristin Ess's Micellar Shampoo. I have not found a shampoo specifically for fine hair that made a difference.)

2.) Don't condition in the shower. Instead, use a leave-in conditioner. I've had the most luck with The Good Stuff Volumizing Hydrating Foam.

3.) Comb your hair. I like using a Wet Brush instead of a comb. It just seems less harsh.

If you're blow drying it, be sure to at least flip your head upside down and use your fingers to tousle your strands and comb them out while you dry it. Round brushing obviously helps, but I haven't mastered this at all, so I don't do it.

If you're not blow drying it, use Tigi Bed Head Queen for a Day Thickening Spray. Scrunch up your hair with your fingers to give it some extra texture.

4.) When your hair is dry, dry shampoo the hell out of it. I don't care that you just washed it--this works better than anything. I like Batiste Volumizing in the hot pink can. This serves the exact same purpose as loose volumizing powder, and is way easier to use. Batiste also makes dry shampoo in different hues, just in case white powder shows in your hair!

5.) Want some more volume and texture? I do! I love OGX's Bodifying Sugar Spray. I also use my fingers to scrunch here.

6.) Top it off with a strong-hold volumizing hairspray. I love OGX's Fiber Full Big Hairspray.

On days you don't wash your hair

1.) Dry shampoo.

2.) OGX's Bodifying Sugar Spray.

3.) Need more texture and volume? I love John Frieda's Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray to scrunch with my fingers.

4.) OGX's Fiber Full Big Hairspray.

5.) Dry shampoo again whenever your hair starts looking limp or showing grease.

Want to extend your hairstyle for another day? Dry shampoo right before bed. I do it after I've washed my face so I don't forget it.


A note: I have found that keeping my hair in a bob (right above my shoulders is my preferred length) achieves way more volume than longer hair. Fine hair feels so light, but it's heavy on itself. Plus, regular trims keep your hair shaped and primed for a style. It's just way easier to manage than hair that hasn't been trimmed and shaped in a while.


Edit 2: Whew, thanks for the gold!! I hope these work for y'all!

Nice, she's usually pretty booked out, but her balayage grow-out always manages to be a beautiful color. It never looks ashy/copper, I don't know how she mixes but I always love the grow out color so I only have to see her 2-3x a year. She understands asian hair too, which is sometimes harder to find. Also, as long as we're talking hair which I loooove, she recommended the Oribe hair mask which I splurged on since I'm a diehard Oribe fan. Due to being broke, I've had to switch over to bumble&bumble invisible oil shampoo/conditioner which I bought on sale during black friday and it's a pretty good dupe. The oribe hair mask extended the color/quality of my balayage by a significant amount of time, like at least a few months. I recommend getting it if you can, it's worth the investment, because when I got lazy and stopped doing weekly hair masks using that stuff, the difference is very noticeable. I used it weekly after one balayage and never used it after my second, to run an experiment (and also life got in the way) and it's a very noticeable difference. Leave it in overnight if you can. It lasts forever too because you only need a tiny bit, I still have it, I wish I had learned about it years ago but oh well. It's a splurge but it's now on my holy grail list and I've tried a ton of products. They also have this dry shampoo paste which I like a lot better than the sprayable kind.

Also as long as I'm here if anyone can recommend a good dermatologist....

u/dailydoseofDANax · 1 pointr/AskWomen

this happens to me towards the end of my wash cycle -_- (i try to only wash my hair once a week, twice tops) so to stretch it out, i use a verrrrrrrry soft boar bristle brush combined with this spray- works super well! they have it in different scents, but this is the one i've been using for the past 6 months and it has argan and hemp oil which are both great for hair! just squirt a little on your hands, run through the parts prone to tangles/tangled parts, and brush through with the soft boar bristle brush. i use this one :)

then afterward if you feel like your hair is a bit flat/limp (i also have fine, delicate, easily breakable hair so i know the styling struggle!) i will squirt a littttttle dry shampoo on the crown/roots, will brush through with a round boar bristle/nylon brush, and then use a hair dryer for less than 30 seconds just to give it some volume. works pretty well for the last 2 days before i wash again! i prefer to use batiste with a hint of dark brown because i'm a brunette and it doesn't leave any residue, and they also have lighter brown/blonde. this one by tigi is also ok but is definitely stickier than batiste i've found

since my hair type is like yours, i've noticed on the days i keep touching it cuz i have this nervous hair flipping tic, it gets greasier and knottier A LOT quicker, so try not to touch it at all!! hope i helped! :)

Edit: sorry the links formatted so weird- I input them on a desktop but just now saw on Mobile they came out all sorts of wonky. I'm sorry about that!! 😖

u/Sylvi2021 · 2 pointsr/amiugly

I have super oily hair but I also love to dye my hair crazy colors so I can't wash it every day or my dye lasts 2 damn weeks. Dry shampoo can be your best friend. It gives your hair volume without weighing it down. Batiste makes really great inexpensive ones. They make one for brunettes that doesn't leave white residue in your hair like others. I also love this one

This pomade is also really awesome for styling that doesn't leave nasty residue. Use a tiny bit, rub it between your palms and style.

u/Bri-ness · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

How does this post on AskWomen get approved when I just tried to submit one like 10 mins ago with that exact same wording, but changed "hair product" to "skincare product" and mine got auto-deleted.....??????????

Anyway...... I LOVE Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. It smells great and it's the best dry shampoo I've tried. It doesn't leave that white, powdery residue and gets rid of the oily-ness (?) without having to wash your hair. I try to not wash my hair every day, so I'll use this in between and it works great for me. It's cheaper to get on Ebay though. Same product, just not as pricey!

u/solosoulrider · 2 pointsr/BurningMan

Ahhhh these are my favorite things to encounter!!!!!! A few things I love as a stanky lady on playa (in case you care)

  • poo-pourri. Maybe buy 10ish and just restock if they are commandeered?
  • dry shampoo
  • spray deodorant
  • lavender wipes to go

    Another BIG one I would love to see -- why not also decorate a cool, small trash bin for people to put their wipes into? The wipes are not supposed to go into the potty hole, but time after time again I see them in there when I look into the hole. What I imagine is that someone didn't know, brought it into the porto, used it to wipe their poo-poo, & see the signs but are now like "well shit what do I do?" So maybe having a place for their wipes would help this!? It will be gross for you but just strap on those rubber gloves baby!

    I'm assuming you are planning to come through every once and a while to check on your gift so maybe it can be a little daily :)

    In terms of securing stuff, would it be kosher if you got a few of these bad boys and then tied the items to hang them?


    I have no idea if this info is helpful but hope it is!! And hope I get to experience your porto gift!
u/anastasiabeverhausen · 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Dry Shampoo does wonders when you're at the 1 or 2 day getting oily stage - it usually gets me another 12 hours out of a wash. I have really fine hair that gets frizzy when I wash too often. Also, when you're in a pinch, just spraying some normal hairspray on your roots & brushing it through can get rid of some oil.

Also, finding a good stylist & maybe spending a little extra money every 6 weeks or so on a haircut helps too - a good stylist can help you choose a style good for your face shape and cut some great layers in your hair that makes it easy to care for and give it lots of cute movement. Also, they can work with your callicks :)

u/GlassRockets · 1 pointr/DIYBeauty

For the dry shampoo, if you actually want to use it not just right before you wash your hair (Which I definitely recommend because I can get away with washing my hair twice a week, it's a lifesaver if you sometimes live a busy life, and I use it even on freshly washed hair because I achieve volume I would never get without a blow dryer.) Then I would get pre-made dry shampoo here's the one I currently am using (But get the one for blondes if you're blonde)

The way I use it is I pour some on my oily areas like the back of my head and massage it in to distribute, flip my hair to the side, repeat, flip my hair to the other side, etc, until it no longer looks or feels oily and I have hair to the havens. If you don't have a ton of hair you might prefer a more precise application using a clean makeup brush. If there's any visible tint of the powder I brush it to distribute it.

Although the powder takes a bit longer to use than the spray, it's alcohol free, without all those awful chemicals, less drying, and lasts longer.

As for making your own there's a lot of recipes and most of them will probably work just as well as pre made ones. I just prefer them because they're scented and conveniently come in bottles with shakers.

For blondes:

  • Arrowroot powder (this is preferable over others)

  • Cornstarch

  • Baby powder

    For ginger hair:

  • Cinnamon

    For deep red tones:

  • Sugar free DUTCHED cocoa powder

    For brunettes:

  • a mixture of arrowroot and sugar free non-dutched powder

    For black or almost black hair:

  • sugar free cocoa powder

    If your hair looks too dull to your liking, brush it out more and apply a shine serum on the bottom half of your hair.
u/JustinJSrisuk · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

For a dry shampoo, I recommend two products: the first is the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo, it is a good all-purpose dry shampoo for about fifteen dollars. It has a neutral, unisex scent that is far less offensive than the Batiste® one that's found in pharmacies everywhere. If you have an oily scalp and hair, I suggest the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle - Oily Hair as its a little more heavy-duty.

About the leave-in conditioner, there are a few great ones under twenty dollars - and the great thing is that a bottle will last you at least six months (at least, if you use an appropriate amount and avoid overdoing it). A classic product is It's A Ten Leave-In Plus Keratin, an all-purpose leave-in spray that moisturizers, smooths and prevents breakage. If you're seeking something to add a bit more shine, Biosilk Silk Therapy and CHI Keratin Silk Infusion both strengthen and condition hair while leaving an appealing sheen. If you're looking for something that moisturizes and softens hair but leaves more of a matte finish, then Alterna Caviar Complete Correction Hair Cream is one of my favorite haircare products - bar none. Finally, if you're looking for something that isn't a serum or cream-texture like the four leave-in conditioners I listed, then I recommend the SACHAJUAN Leave In Conditioner which is a spray-on liquid leave-in conditioner that is very hydrating but still rather light; and it has a pleasant fragrance to boot.

All of the products I mentioned are around $15 - $25 dollars. Sorry about the essay, but I buy and experiment with a lot of haircare products so I like to give people options when it comes to which products to use. Hope this helps with what you're looking for!

u/v_veronicamars · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Ooooh I luv this topic!!!!

I take multiple 12+ hour flights a year :/ Here's my little routine!

Before the flight: Get plenty of rest, pack the night before so I don't freak out in the morning. Take some zinc.


  • Black joggers
  • Black tank top
  • Black cardigan
  • Some kind of outer jacket/shell with pockets and a hood (so I can keep my head off the headrest)
  • Sneakers that are easy to slip on and off
  • Scarf to cover my face in case someone is coughing!! Added bonus: prevents people from seeing me sleep with my mouth gaping open and drool trickling out. Also keeps face warm.

    The all black keeps me looking kind of serious and savvy. I used to wear skinny jeans on the plane, but my knees would start throbbing (and probably treading into DVT territory, don't forget to read /u/Rogue_Fibre's PSA below about her experience with DVT...

    Makeup: Moisturizer, waterproof eyeliner, and a lip stain. Otherwise I look really tired. (side note: It's so dispiriting to go to the bathroom and look at my pores which seem to open up on the plane!! Does anyone else look at themselves in the mirror and feel that way?)

    In my small bag that I keep with me in my seat: Hand sanitizer, eye drops, glasses, iphone & charger, headphones, pills (ibuprofen, benadryl if I need to sleep).

    I swear by this Muji inflatable neck cushion which fulfills, in my mind, two purposes: 1) Keeps my head off the icky headrest with those nasty flimsy excuses for headrest covers, and 2) is SUPER comfortable! I used to always make fun of people who use those neck cushions, but they give a lot of support if you're sleeping - they prevent your head from rolling over to the side and giving you a neck cramp.

    I always request aisle seats! This makes it easy to run to the loo and just walk around if I'm bored. I pretty much have to pee all the time.

    My hair tends to lose volume on the plane, so sometimes a little bit of R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste gives my hair a bit of lift!

Hey All!
Recently I’ve been hating my hair a lot, it’s thin, wavy, frizzy, easily tangled, damaged. Great.

I started watching YouTube videos about the CGM and I’m in shock, as a Latina I don’t typically see many girls with my hair type. They’re either SUPER straight or SUPER curly. I thought I was just cursed with the middle child.

I would like to begin! From my understanding the three main ingredients to look out for are sulfates, silicones, and alcohols.
I don’t ever use heat on my hair and I tend to dye it 1-2 times MAX per year, so I was so confused on how comes over peoples hair were in better condition.

Products I use are:

Pantene Pro-V Advanced Care

Not your mothers clean freak dry shampoo

not your mothers sea salt texturizing sea salt spray

ogx argon oil of Morocco

unwined HASK rose wine color protection 10 in 1 leave in spray

These are all the products I used which have high reviews but NOTHING is doing my hair justice.
Thank you for listening to my ted talk

My hair needs justice.

u/audreats · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I've started working out before going to the office, and am in a similar situation without a shower. Here's what's helped me.

  • Body wipes. I currently use these. One for the pits & ladybits, and one for everywhere else (arms, chest, neck, etc).
  • A good spray of gold bond, and fresh deodorant.
  • Dry shampoo - either in a spray or powder. Just make sure you give your hair a good ruffle afterward so you don't get powdery spots.
  • Headbands are a godsend! Especially with a ponytail.

    Good luck!
u/mewmewkitty · 9 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I swear by dry shampoo! I always have it on me for post-workout or when I'm out camping. I have really thick hair which gets super gross very easily. In the past I've used this and it worked great. I'm currently in love with No Drought from Lush. Great product and it doesn't dry out my scalp like the aerosol cans do.

u/aeb1022 · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

9-5'er checking in- I've been working out 7-8 am, M-F for the last ~3 months and I love it. (never thought I'd say that lol!)

I can actually get ready for work faster at the gym than at home because of the lack of distractions. I'm asking for a gym bag for Christmas, because all of this crap does not fit in any single bag that I own lol. I bring a towel, turbi-twist, toiletry bag with shampoo/conditioner/face wash/body wash/razor, hanging toiletry bag with heat protectant spray/deodorant/body spray/moisturizer/cotton swabs, makeup bag, straightener, body lotion, dry shampoo (clean freak for the days I don't wash my hair, shower shoes, and small zippered bag for my jewelry. I keep extra pairs of undies in a small pocket of my bag, and should probably actually keep an entire change of clothes in my car. I have forgotten underwear, bra, and towel before (not all on the same day, haha!). It's super important to prepare everything the night before. I lay my towel out in the backseat of my car during my work day so it dries. I keep my work clothes folded in my bag overnight and during my workout, and I haven't had a problem with wrinkly clothes, I guess partly because of the type of fabrics I wear (drapey tops and jersey knit skirts).

Sorry for the stream of consciousness lol. I am a huge advocate of the before-work workout.

Ok, I've tried a few dry shampoos and here's what I came up with.

  • Got2b Rockin' It - This stuff works the best, though one can of it does not seem to last very long.
  • Suave - This dry shampoo works very well. It's almost as good as Got2b's. One weird thing is that the directions say to spray the powder in, then press it with your hand so your heat can help it work. I haven't seen ones like this before, but it does work better if you do it like that. It's definitely great for the price.
  • Tresemme - I don't know why I've tried this multiple times, because each time it was just terrible. I think I had two cans that just stopped spraying, and simply oozed after using it once. It's a crappy product, and it doesn't last long before it starts sputtering.

    You say you have fine hair and are afraid of weighing it down. My hair also weighs down easily with product, and I love how dry shampoo seems to give it more body and oomph. I usually use it when I straighten my hair so I don't have to wash it and re-straighten it the next day. I don't use it multiple times in a row without washing my hair though since it will start to build up at that point and make your hair gross.

    EDIT: Also, although I haven't tried it, I've heard a lot of good things about Batiste. Unfortunately it's just not sold in stores in my area and I don't really feel like buying it online.

    EDIT 2: Something else I just thought of -- dry shampoo can sometimes make my scalp a bit itchy, so I don't know if it will affect your eczema at all.

I wash my hair once a week. I will add I can only wear it down for the first and second days. After that I wear it up with long sideswept bangs. Dry shampoo is love dry shampoo is life.

I workout for 2 hours per day, I sweat like crazy... But it's literally just salt water, it's not gross... It's like buying the expensive beach texture sprays but for free. Just dry it fully and is dry shampoo afterwards.

My absolute favorite dry shampoo is Klorane the non-aersol squeeze one. It's more expensive but lasts months, the spray ones only lasted me 3 weeks or less.

Puff it on... brush your teeth or do your make up, then brush or rake it out with your hands! Voila! Fresh hair.

It does take a few weeks to tone down the oil... but literally it's a matter of using more dry shampoo during that time period until your scalp gets used to you not washing away the oil every 24 hours.

u/VooDooBelle · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I have fine, straight as a board hair that is super oily and I wouldn't make it without dry shampoo.

I started using this dry shampoo and it made a huge difference for me. It's actually part of a "system" that they now carry, but I think that I've used the hair mask maybe twice. Even with this conditioner, I'm still careful to only condition my ends. If I put it on my scalp my hair would be so greasy that it would look wet.

I also sometimes use Batiste in brunette

If you're in the US Walgreen's is having a buy 2 get 1 free sale on hair care. You can mix and match the brands.

u/peachroses · 2 pointsr/Hair

Hello! As a girl that has very oily hair/scalp I recommend using dry shampoo! I just started using it and it has made such a dramatic difference, I was so pleased. The one I'm currently using is batiste, it gets rid of the oil and grease in my roots and makes my hair look fresh, adds a bit of volume and it smells really nice. Batiste comes in lots of different scents, too.

I've also heard really good things about suave's dry shampoo link but haven't used it myself yet. Suave's might be a good starting point since it's so cost effective (affective?) and might be easier to find than the Batiste.

u/Apothnesko · 1 pointr/HairDye

I'm not too familiar with that but i use this and its my favorite I've used it for years, its pretty natural it seems

u/bpstyley · 16 pointsr/AskWomen

I don't have long, thin hair, but I do have major issues with flat hair due to buildup caused by hard water. Applying Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo to my roots before bed (and sometimes again in the morning), and using Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray after styling have been my saving graces. The Oribe spray is pricey, but one can lasts FOREVER (8+ months for me), smells amazing, and works incredibly well!

u/BootyByHershey · 10 pointsr/NoPoo

Oh wow.... I don't know a whole lot about water only washing but I wanted to jump in and say that I'm sorry to hear what you're going through :-(

I looked through your comment history to see if you're male or female (hope you don't mind). I assume that since you're a guy, you have short hair already... perhaps pick up a decent [dry shampoo] ( and only wash once a week? The dry shampoo should keep it smelling fresh and not looking greasy in between washes. Also, if your hair seems dried out from shampoo only, perhaps look into the apple cider vinegar/baking soda method? Should be a little easier on your hair.

In any case, I hope things improve for you and your family very soon.

u/Kalthia · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

I would not worry about fully showering and doing your hair at work if your hair is long. If you can shower (lucky you!) just do your body and keep your hair dry. Wash your hair at home.

I used to wash my hair every morning, but was pleasantly surprised when I started commuting that I didn't need to. If you want you could try something like this:

u/munkigirl0 · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

This is the best stuff ever

It also gets good reviews if you want to look it over. It disappears even on my super dark hair, doesn't clump, one bottle lasts a looong time.

edit: found the listing with reviews/cheaper:

u/Chedipe · 2 pointsr/femalehairadvice

Though I'm not sure about bleaching it cause it's fine. I have fine hair too and I've lost many a hair because of it. I would suggest doing highlights to add some dimension. red. Your natural hair color already looks perfect on you but red highlights would look fun. It wouldn't be that much hair either so you wouldn't end up losing as much hair. There are also ways of thickening it up though. If you don't end up dying it at all or if you do. Castor oil, neem oil, and many other things have helped people thicken their hair.

u/cheetahg1rl · 1 pointr/minimalism

Another vote here for dry shampoo. I only wash my hair twice a week and dry shampoo is what saves me between washes. Maybe it could even be worth investing in a few headbands to keep it back which may help with presentation. For extremely low cost options, baby powder or cornstarch can substitute in a fix, but only works well with light hair. Spray on dry shampoo is available just about anywhere these days. She may also consider having a supply of baby wipes/face wash wipes for freshening up between showers. This is a great and affordable brand

u/kayceelee · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I like Pssst!. It makes my hair super soft and clean smelling/feeling.

u/MegaGuns · 2 pointsr/Coachella

I am a big fan of dry shampoo. I use it a lot when camping if you don't have a lot of water to use. (Also use on occasion when I don't have time to wash my hair)
The powder soaks up the oils in your hair and makes it smell clean as well.
This is my favorite.

u/GirlOverboard · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

The problem with dry shampoos is that their effect seems to change depending on your hair. I tried a couple that seemed to make my hair worse despite having overall good reviews.

For me, personally (short, relatively straight hair, a little greasy, med-brown), the two that have worked best for me are:

  • Pssssst! Instant Dry Shampoo. It's a little perfumey, but if I avoid spraying it on the front part of my hair, it doesn't bother me much. You can get it for $5-$8 a lot of places. Probably the cheapest you'll find and one of the few that I've tried that didn't give me a headache.
  • Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract. It's a pretty gentle formula and despite a fairly strong smell, it doesn't agitate my sensitive sense of smell. Some people that prefer more floral smells seem to find it weird smelling but once it's brushed out, I don't even smell it. Warning, the aerosol spray comes out at a million miles an hour.

    Another option is baby powder, which smells nice... but if you have darker hair, it can be hard to brush it all out so it doesn't have a greying effect. I've also found it creates static in my hair. I've heard of others suggesting unsweetened cocoa powder if you have darker hair, loose face powder for medium brown hair, and cornstarch or finely ground oats (I'd imagine you'd want to avoid instant) for medium to lighter hair. I haven't personally tried any of those last three so proceed with caution. If any of them work for you, though, it'd be cheap and natural!
u/goddesskali · 2 pointsr/FancyFollicles

This is my favorite that i've tried!

I've also tried this brand and I liked it:

there are so many different brands and they're usually not too expensive :) those two are my favorite though, because they seem to absorb the most oil and not leave your hair with a lighter look from the spray, and also give it volume!

u/Samphati · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

I've used Batiste and Psssssst extensively, and I tried Not Your Mother's a few times. Of the three I'd say Psssssst works the best for me, and the other two seem about the same.

Batiste is definitely the most powdery, so that may be a problem depending on your hair color. I also agree with the other poster about Batiste making my hair look less greasy versus others making it look freshly washed.

u/sirynfollyfallen · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

my favorite dinosaur is triceratops because my name is Sarah and the little triceratops chick from land before time, Cera, was my favorite growing up.

u/qx3rt · 1 pointr/actuallesbians

Good luck! Try this brand and it should work for you!

u/joanmavis · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

As a student, I assemble my backpack, check the weather and pick an outfit the night before. I shower every other night to save time in the mornings, and wake up, use dry shampoo and a long bristle brush to volumize and de-oil the slept-on hair. With loose waves, I scrunch in some aloe gel. Moisturize the face, apply deodorant, apply face powder, mascara and fill in the brows. If you want a little more glamour, do a light blush, a neutral eye shadow, and a lip gloss/stick/tint. That's all!

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/PCOS

My wigs were too annoying to deal with. I find that if you wash your hair every day then it will dry it out and cause it to look thinner plus break a lot.. The wig caps I was using and would pin it used to pull more hair out than I liked but I was probably doing something wrong.. I wouldn't use extensions either as I've been told they do a lot more damage than good since they're relying on already weak and thin hair..

However I have found that on off days when my hair is looking oily (the day after washing it :/) I use dry shampoo, specifically Klorane, but don't go overboard or your hair will look powdered, it's mainly best to get in the roots and as if you're lathering work the powder onto your scalp and down your hair to look less powdery. After about two minutes? Thicker looking hair! Was awesome.

So yeah.. I've given up trying to fix the problem which sucks because I lost 100lbs to look better and by the time my weight was down I'd just lost enough hair that I didn't feel it was able to be fixed. I asked my doctors for help as well and they passively shooed me off.

C'est la vie .. or something :P

u/ahhh_zombies · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I really like Pssssst. It is inexpensive and gets the job done. It also seems to brush out easier than other ones I have tried.

u/ensuta · 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty

They definitely exist in Japan, though I have no experience with them. Shiseido has one, and so does DHC. I don't use dry shampoo, so unfortunately, this is all I can really come up with... but definitely keep searching, because they exist!

u/springquery · 0 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Thank you for your replies.

If so, maybe some products can make the hair shiner and sleeker and have bigger volume without washing, maybe can not the clean the hair, and I can blow-dry the hair after using it.

How about the three products:*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Anyone has the experience with the two?

For the leave-in conditioner, leave-in treatment, if I use them, can I still blow-dry my hair with them on?

Thank you. I do not want to wash hair every day.

u/shenricks · 12 pointsr/xxfitness

Pull your hair up in a tight bun, wear a headband, towel it dry and maybe bust out the hair dryer post workout if it's soaked. But I live on Batiste. I wash my hair once a week despite the fact that I go to the gym 6 days a week haha. No complaints from my husband or co workers. Recently I tried using this recommended Badlands clay but it really doesn't do much for me as far as taking out oil and is more like a texturizing clay.

Pssssst! Dry Shampoo

Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo

Edited: I stunk at making pretty links :P

u/haleyadee · 6 pointsr/orangetheory

I swear by powder dry shampoo. It absorbs moisture and sweat way better than an aerosol dry shampoo does, and feels less chemically. Baby powder also works fine, but can look a little dandruff-y if you don't give it enough time to absorb. Otherwise I search through pinterest for bun hairstyles on days when it's just not cooperating or I don't have time!
edit: I use [this power dry shampoo from amazon] (
When I do wash and dry it in the morning before work, I use a blow dry accelerator spray which doubles in protecting your hair from heat damage. I like the biolage one, its a little pricier, but the tresemme one worked well too!

u/sherlocked · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I also use the R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste in between washings (sulfate free) and will also vouch for it. :) It's been my experience that a dry shampoo paste is easier to use because I can actually apply it to the roots, where it belongs. I do think the R+Co one involves coconut oil though, so maybe not the best option for you if your skin doesn't like coconut.

u/sarshadd · 1 pointr/BurningMan

I've been using R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste

but am excited to try some of the other suggestions on this post!

u/niconico · 2 pointsr/FancyFollicles

I ran across this at the drugstore and have been using it ever since. It's a nice refreshing scent. Have you tried using baby powder?

u/double-dog-doctor · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Klorane is my favorite dry shampoo ever, and it comes in an non-aerosol version.

u/InfernalWedgie · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

Use a dry shampoo in between regular washings. Wash your hair 3 times a week, use dry shampoo in between. Batiste is a popular dry shampoo line

u/itsok_imapirate · 6 pointsr/BDSMcommunity

My hairdresser friend gave me some tips for helping my hair to grow out and I will just pass them on to you: take your vitamins and consider adding biotin into the mix. Minimize your hair washing to 2-3 times a week, she suggested this dry shampoo between washings. Try to let your hair down as often as you can, trying it up can stress your hair and cause breaks. Deep condition your hair a couple times a month with coconut oil, you can wrap your hair up under a shower cap amd let it soak in.

u/spacemermaid · 10 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Have you tried the baking soda/vinegar approach? You basically wash your hair with baking soda powder, then use a diluted water/apple cider vinegar rinse as a conditioner. Google it, it is sometimes called "no-poo."
Also, you could try supplementing with dry shampoo to combat greasies while your hair adjusts to your new routine. This is my fav dry shampoo; I don't know what I would do without it!

u/brawburner · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I don't think you really need to spring for it. I got the cheapest one available at Ulta on recommendation from one of the girls who worked there and it works just fine. You said somewhere that you have poofy hair naturally - I do, too. The brand of dry shampoo that I get doesn't poof up my hair at all. It just gets rid of grease at the roots and makes it not smelly. And it was only $3 at Ulta.

u/agent_philcoulson · 1 pointr/Hair

My hair is the same. Honestly, I had to try about 10 volumizing shampoos before I found one that worked. I use John Freida Luxurious Volume shampoo and conditioner. After I blow dry it, I use this texturizing spray.

It's trial and error. You just have to keep trying different things.

u/17January2017 · 30 pointsr/yoga

Dry shampoo:

This particular dry shampoo is my favourite:

Any dry shampoo will do, my only suggestion is to avoid ones that are "re-stylers" because they are part hairspray too, which isn't what you'd want.
