The Dry Shampoo Diaries – Part II

Written By: Fanny Lau

The last series of The Dry Shampoo Diaries introduced three natural options to keep your hair spiffy clean. This time around, we have two new additions to the diaries.

Fat and the Moon – Lavender & Cocoa Dry Shampoo

The first thing that caught my attention about this was the kraft cardboard packaging. Simple, yet sophisticated. Then I read the label and was reminded of this amazing piece of lavender mocha cake slice I once had at Cadeaux Bakery... and I was sold. I also want to note that this is the first dry shampoo I’ve encountered that has a legitimately secure lid for the product – no spillage!

Best way to use it: I like to shake the product onto my palm, and then use a brush to distribute it onto my roots.

Ingredients: organic arrowroot starch, organic cocoa powder, kaolin clay, organic lavender essential oil

Where to get it: $20,, (in-store)

Davines – This is a Texturing Dust

I was originally introduced to this product by one of my former hairstylists many years. I. didn’t appreciate it in my younger days, but I’m making up for lost time. This texturizing dust (besides having an awesome name) isn’t quite a dry shampoo, but rather gives your hair properties of dirty hair and lots and lots of volume.

Best way to use it: Gently rotate the bottle in a figure eight motion to even the product. Sprinkle the dust on the roots of your hair – think salt, but keep it very minimal, and then tousle with your fingertips.

Ingredients: water, silica siylate, isopentyldiol, gluconolcatone, sodium benzoate, VPNA copolymer, passiflora edulis seed oil, oryza sativa rice bran oil, euterpe oleracea fruit oil

Where to get it: Your local Davines salon
