beauty + my new fave dry shampoo

Let's talk about dry shampoo.

If we're being completely honest, I've never been a fan. I've tried multiple kinds from multiple brands, and usually it just ends up being a waste of money. It's literally like my hair was rejecting the product.

I love fixing my hair, but it's very time consuming, as well as bad for my hair's health. Blow drying + curling every day is not the best! I generally use a hell of a lot of Oribe Texturizing Spray each time I start my hair from scratch, and it keeps my messy waves in tact from mid-shaft to ends, but my roots are a different story. 

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know the angel that is Lauren Conrad cut her hair a couple years ago from long, perfect waves to a short, beachy bob. It was amazing. Not kidding, I chopped off my hair a week after she did (there were other reasons why I cut my hair too, obviously, but LC's influence was a contributing factor). The lovely Kristin Ess, the celebrity hairstylist known for her amazing instagram and beauty blog, was the creative genius behind LC's bob. You can also see her amazing work on Lucy Hale, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and Halle Berry. 

Basically, I live for Kristin's instagram, so I was so happy to find out that she had paired with Target for her own haircare line! I went to Target this past week and picked up the one item that I desperately needed - a halfway decent dry shampoo.

Guys. Unreal. Can't tell if this is gross or beauty-conscious, but I haven't washed my hair since Tuesday and it still looks fresh! I like the fact that when I spray the dry shampoo on my roots, I can physically see the powder. This hasn't been the case with the other options I've tried. Once applied, you rub the powder into the roots and your hair is instantly refreshed.

Don't get me wrong, my hair is as messy as ever, but since that's the look I'm going for, it's not a negative.

That being said, I don't really know how this product would look if you didn't want bedhead waves. It works so well with the Oribe spray, but I'd really like to see someone with smoother and less hair than mine try this dry shampoo. 

Have y'all tried any of Kristin Ess' hair products? Or do y'all have another fave dry shampoo I should try? Let me know!
