It's a wonder how my hair hasn't completely fallen off my head...

I’m going to make a little bit of a confession – I rarely wash my hair. I know, I know. Gross, right? You’re picturing my as Tom Hanks in Castaway, right? (Let’s be honest, if I let myself go, I could actually end up looking like that. Beard and all.)

The truth is, while I dislike washing my hair, I still need to do right by the Glam Mama nickname. Greasy hair doth not a Glam Mama make! So I’m letting you in on a little secret – dry shampoo!

I much prefer using dry shampoo than take the time to wash my hair (and either having to blow-dry it or wait 2 hours for it to air-dry). I use this super-cheap variety from a nearby pharmacy.

The saleslady told me it’s popular with Chinese moms in confinement, apparently because they’re not allowed to wash their hair or even touch water. (Side note: I think that’s mostly a stereotype – I have Chinese friends who have strict confinement, and Chinese friends who take a shower like 5 minutes after delivery.)

I’ve been thinking of upgrading my dry shampoo. Comfy Care is a very basic powder-type thing. I have to fluff my hair a lot to really get it evenly spread and not end up with white marks all over my hair. These days there are very glam-looking hairspray-type dry shampoos. I saw the Batiste Dry Shampoo collection at Boots when I was at Heathrow Airport last month:

But I didn’t get any because I worried that I wouldn’t be allowed on the plane. Obviously it was a brain fart, because I’d already gone past the last security check at that point. Durhhh. Major regret there.

Fortunately, yesterday I noticed an ad  for dry shampoo on my very own blog! As it turns out, HiShop sells this at a very reasonable price - RM35.90 (click on pic for details!):

We all know how cray-cray Raya season can get. Lest I end up going to unsuspecting relatives' houses with wet hair or, worse, a ponytail (my typical, boring, uninspired option), I think I better keep up a nice blowout from the salon and eke out a few extra days with it by dry-shampooing. I look forward to trying this dry shampoo out! Here’s to hoping that a couple more decades pass before I look like the very handsome Tom Hanks.

  2. I've long recommended that people seeking to possess a good understanding of this kind of topic spread their particular research across many blogs so as not to abide by wrong information. You've got provided so many sites for people like me for starters. But this can be confusing for some. Let's not forget the only real enemy here's not being focused. This will happen to some. And so my advice is: Stay focused. Thank you
