Never Wash Your Hair Again

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010
Who wants to shampoo, condition and blow dry every day? Not us. And besides, didn't our hair dressers say that it wasn't good for our hair to be constantly cleaned? So, instead of wasting precious time watering the grease out of your locks, buy a bottle of dry shampoo and just cover the grease up. Dry shampoo is perfect for traveling, touring, over-sleeping before work or those of us who have better things to do than lather, rinse, repeat. We put together a list of some of our favorite dry shampoo products. Check them out below.

Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder Black

This Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder Black, is a spray-on powder is perfect for those lazy, greasy girls with dark hair. Make sure you shake the bottle vigorously before spraying onto your hair--always hold bottle about 10 inches away--or else you will end up making your hair twice as greasy. This product is not for blondes, unless you're trying to home-job yourself a skunk head.

Keratin Complex Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo smells like a dream and powders on easy. Be sure to shake your hair with your fingers to avoid clumping. Simple and fresh. A standard option to showering.

TRESemme Dry Shampoo Spray

This TRESemme Dry Shampoo Spray is the cheapest (drug stores sell it for around $4) and most durable dry shampoo out there. It will volumize your hair better than any high-end hair spray and lasts for days on end. Not to mention that the bottle seems to be endless.

Johnson's Baby Powder

Sometimes the best way to dry shampoo is the D.I.Y route. If you have bleached blonde hair and don't mind seeing your scalp turn white, Johnson's Baby Powder offers the best bang for your buck and smells like a freshly bathed baby. Who wouldn't want their hair to smell like a clean child?

LuLu Organics NYC Travel Size Hair Powder

We suggest the LuLu Organics Lavender Clary Sage scent. A little patchouli, but some of us are totally down with that.

Long Hair?

Monday, October 25th, 2010
Long hair has long been a symbol of youth.  Major fashion magazines perpetuate this expectation and "short" is just what you're expected to do with your hair once you hit a certain age, that is unless your a, hippie (gasp). Author, Dominique Browning who wears her long hair with pride, tackles this issue in "Why Can't Middle Aged Women Have Long Hair?" for The New York Times. Even though most of us reading hearty are still "young enough" to wear our hair long, Browning's article is an interesting look at women and their expected image in society. We'll all be middle aged one day. Read Domique Browning's article "Why Can't Middle Aged Women have Long Hair?" here. Image via: NYTimes

Lulu Organics Hair Powder

Friday, October 15th, 2010
Yes, we were just complaining about having to do our hair yesterday, so we would like to preface this post by saying we do in fact shower. But, that doesn't mean there aren't days when dealing with your hair is just too much. Lulu Organics Hair Powder is an organic hair powder (okay, you already assumed that from the name) that you can sprinkle into your hair on the days you miss a wash. The powder comes in four different scents: Lavender & Clary Sage, Patchouli & Amber (maybe a bit too hippie for us), Jasmine and Tuberose, and they recently also introduced a travel size version (which we love). So go ahead and don't wash (your hair that is)!

ROUND-UP

Frances Bean Cobain calls out her mother, Courtney Love on Twitter. What Would Kurt Do? [ShowBizSpy] Have you had Bedbugs? Has someone you know had them? If you live in New York, Vancouver, Toronto or anywhere except Gainsville, Florida, you probably have. Critter Counselling is here. [Jezebel] Who the hell wants to drive on a punk tour? These clowns. [Vice] This is the best hair we have ever seen. [Studded Hearts] Spot a pal. [Punks I'd Like To Fuck] We're still constantly on the hunt for a good set of big, flashy dagger nails. Beat us to the punch with these claws. [High Snobette]

Hair Magic

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010
Angelo Seminara's hairdos are magical. Creating his patterns electronically, Seminara turns them into a stencil, cutting the design out by hand. Then with dye he paints the stencils on to sections of the hair. So, that hair you're seeing above hasn't been crimped, it's been dyed to look that way. Has your jaw dropped yet, too? Even though we know how it's done, it's still magical! Via: UO Blog

Oily Hair

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010
Greasy hair may be in style, but this is oily on a whole new (better) level. We've all been saddened by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and seeing pictures of the poor helpless creatures makes it that much worse. While there are a variety of ways to help out, one that struck us as interesting is donating your locks to help soak up the oil. Hair, fur, fleece, feathers, and nylons can be made into booms that will help soak up the oil along the coastlines, and anyone can donate! For more info visit Matter of Trust. Via: Refinery29
