One Beauty Product I can't Live Without

For this I'm going to have to go with a good dry shampoo. My go to these days is Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk and it is seriously the most amazing product I've ever used. It's on the pricier side but worth every cent. A bottle runs about $19 (yikes! I know!) but a lot of Ricky's Stores, not sure if they are elsewhere, sell 2 for $29. I used to buy them on Birchbox (which is totally how I found out about this awesome stuff) but Ricky's is way way cheaper.

Klorane also makes a dry shampoo with nettle which is meant for even more oily hair, but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe I should though.. will keep you updated! 

I've tried many, many, many dry shampoos over the years. Some left weird a residue, some made my hair feel like butt. This one though, this one is a beautiful beautiful concoction of love. It makes me hair look clean (check- the whole point of a dry shampoo), it makes my hair manageable, it makes my hair feel soft, fresh and easy to run my fingers through.

Dry shampoo makes for an easier day in general, it cuts down on bathing time and then I don't feel weird if I decide to not wash my hair for a few days. I used to be a serious hair-washer, everyday if not twice. Now it's more of a 2-3/week. But it still looks and smells great because of this perfect product. don't ever leave me!

And now on to the good stuff in life- introducing you to one of the awesome peeps who hangs out on my sidebar!

 "Hey, I'm Rachael, the writer behind The Rachael Way!  I blog about living in China, my struggles as an expat, being a first year teacher, life in general and the tough stuff.  Really, nothing is off limits on my blog.  I hope you'll stop by and say hello!"

Seriously though, this gal is pretty awesome. First off she just moved to CHINA to teach for the year (read some of her FAQs here). I love reading her posts about translations and prices, her post about the Chinese Wal-Mart blew my mind. Rachael has some great tips about growing up and enjoying life in general, and who doesn't appreciate someone whose favorite gif is of Zooey Deschanel.  We are all weird in our own ways and we gotta embrace it! Go say hello to Rachael and see what else she has been up to! (plus she just got a bloggy makeover and it looks fantastic!)

Happy Friday!!

annnnnddd because I want to shamelessly promote my new favorite jewelry line (Chloe & Isabel) make sure you ENTER the giveaway I've got going on right NOW! Only a few days left! You can check out my initial review and some of the goodies I got here.


  1. I'm so glad I read this. I will have to try this one for sure. I have the oiliest hair...possibly of anyone alive. I use to use baby powder in my hair to cut out the oil on the second day, because like you the dry shampoos I have used made my hair feel and smell terrible. But now I have dark hair and baby powder just won't work. I googled this and found it pretty cheap so I thought I'd share it with you. It's the nettle formula cause that's what I was looking for but they may have both.

  2. Ah! I needed this so bad! I have yet to find a good dry shampoo. Rachael's blog looks like a must-follow as well :) Last: I nominated you for an award! Check out my blog for info!


  3. Klorane makes the best dry shampoo!!!!!!!

  4. ahh they do! and it's so much cheaper! Thank you so much for sharing this- you just saved me a ton of money. I love this stuff and it really is some of the best out there!

  5. You should definitely stop by and say hello to Rachael-she is fantastic and has some really great posts about life. And for sure try Klorane Dry shampoo- another reader posted a link where you can find it for much cheaper (thank goodness!). Also thank you for the nomination!! You are too sweet!

  6. Yes! It is amazing, I'm so happy I found it- basically changed my hair life. I used to use tresume, and then drybar- but both left a funky residue and made my hair feel awful. Klorane is just overall spectacular.

  7. No problem! I'm ordering it today!

  8. This made me crack up! "Some left weird a residue, some made my hair feel like butt"

    I bought the Pantene dry shampoo and it leaves my hair feeling like butt too! I haven't tried any others because I thought they were all the same. I will have to try this one!

  9. I use tresemme dry shampoo, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and then my hair feels like "butt" haha so weird. Will have to try this one out!!
    Oh and just to let you know, I've nominated you for an award! :D Head over to my blog to check it out!
