Dry Shampoo Review: Battle of the Brands

Which dry shampoo will come on top? It is time for YOU to decide! This dry shampoo review battle of the brands has been HIGHLY anticipated and I am so excited to finally have it for all of you! I tested 10 different dry shampoos and rated them on their smell, price, residue they left behind, and how well they worked at making my hair feel clean.

Dry Shampoo Review Battle

I go about 15 days between washing my hair. I have done this for years and honestly didn’t think much of it until I had mentioned it to a few friends. They were blown away that I could go that long. My hair is just so used to it at this point, I am sure I could go much longer if I wanted to. 15 days seems to be my sweet spot for my hair though! I obviously wouldn’t be able to achieve this without dry shampoo, so I have quite a lot of experience with different dry shampoo brands I have used over the years. I wanted to bring back a lot of them that I have tried in the past and a few that I hadn’t ever tried before. I put 10 dry shampoos to the test, just for you guys!

NSYNC No Strings Attached Inspired Puppet Makeup

No Strings Attached was one of the very first albums that I ever bought. It helped shape my love of music at the ripe age of 11.

So instead of living my middle school dreams of seeing NSYNC perform live, I lived my second best dream of becoming a puppet just like the boys of NSYNC. [Read more…]

Music has always played a big part in how I am inspired. I can’t sing and I can’t play instruments, so I have to share that inspiration in a way that doesn’t involve music. That’s why I am so excited about my new Album Cover Makeup series! Every month, I will have a new music album that has inspired me in some way or has somehow shaped who I am. I can’t even put to words how excited I am for this series! It is my passion project for the year. I know that it isn’t something that most of you are as passionate about as I am, but I hope that you can get excited to see what albums are featured and what crazy things I come up with every month!
