Dry Shampoo: Your secret weapon for great hair

Dry Shampoo: Your secret weapon for great hair

My name is Tricia Clarke and I LOVE dry shampoo!

I’ve been talking about DRY SHAMPOO for years  but it is FINALLY catching on. When I give talks to women’s groups I no longer get blank stares when I ask if the crowd knows what dry shampoo is…BUT I am surprised at how many are not really taking advantage of it’s magical powers.

Why do I love dry shampoo so much?

Well friends, did you know,  dry shampo can:

  • save you time
  • conserve water
  • help you workout more
  • allow you to SLEEP more
  • make you LOOK GOOD

It is a game-changer once you use it properly! SO–get ready to take some screenshots, I’m about to change your life! Are you ready?

So you want to know the most the most important rule for dry shampoo? Of course you do!

Here it is, folks!

STAY AHEAD of the greasies!

If you wait until your hair is greasy and gross to start applying dry shampoo, you are fighting a losing battle. You may as well admit defeat and wash your hair. You can avoid this by using  THREE tips:

1.) Use dry shampoo AT NIGHT

That’s right, before you go to bed, apply dry shampoo at your roots–do the ZHUSH (more on that later) and then pull your hair up into a big bun. When you get up the next morning, take down your bun, shake out your hair and carry on!

2.) Use dry shampoo BEFORE YOU WORK OUT

Don’t wait and try and use dry shampoo AFTER a workout. Use the same method as bedtime, but before you workout. When you’ve finished your sweat sesh, take down your bun, and blast your roots with a blow dryer on the cool setting. Boom!

3.) Use dry shampoo on HAIR WASH day

I only wash my hair 2 days a week, and one of the ways I extend my time between washings is to put dry shampoo on after I finish my blowout. Remember, the key is to STAY AHEAD of the greasies!

Now that you know my favorite tips for USING dry shampoo, maybe you are wondering WHICH dry shampoo you should use? Well friends, I have tried them ALL! Keep reading to find out my faves!


After YEARS of trying every dry shampoo I could find, I can tell you that one of my favorites is:


Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Tapioca Dry Shampoo

This formula ticks three boxes:

  • It’s affordable
  • Two options for fragrance: Warm Sugar or Unscented


The key ingredient is Tapioca Starch–and this works way better for me than other formulations. Check your favorite bottle–what’s the key ingredient that absorbs excess oil? If it’s not tapioca or rice starch, you may want to try one that utilizes these ingredients. I have fine, straight hair and dry shampoos containing either tapioca or rice starch work the best for me.



Below is a picture of all the dry shampoos I bought over a span of 2 years. See any you’ve tried?


And NOW, thanks to my girls at Olive Grace Collective salon in Lake Geneva,  I have a new favorite, and you really must try it. AG Hair Dry Shampoo follows my principle of using Rice and Tapioca starch and smells absolutely amazing!
