Avoid ending up on one of Glamour’s cringe-worthy Don’t Lists with these dry shampoo guidelines.

Much like vivid red lipstick or potent perfume, dry shampoo can totally backfire if used incorrectly. You know what we mean: sticky, greasy-looking locks and lackluster volume. It takes practice, but once you’ve harnessed the product’s awesome revitalizing powers, it’s a game-changer. Impromptu cocktail hours? Bring ‘em on. Spin class-deflated locks? Fear not. With Serge Normant’s Meta Revive Dry Shampoo as our prime test subject, we’ve put together a compendium of dry shampoo do’s and don’ts.

Dry Shampoo Do’s

1. Do: Rotate different formulas. Stocking an arsenal of varying products, from aerosol sprays to loose powders, will help you tackle every hair gripe. We love to attack our AM bedhead with Batiste’s super powdery dry shampoo and boost volume with Serge Normant’s thick, texturizing spray right before hitting happy hour. P.S. According to office lore, cofounder Katia uses a different dry shampoo every day to score her signature, bouncy locks.

strawberry kawaii hair curlers tutorial! <3 

6 anti microbial foam sponge curlers. Come in different shapes and colors. I have the strawberry ones. They are from sasa.com. Before I tried these I read the reviews. Many people commented that the curlers dried out their hair or made their ends frizzy. It was suggested to use a leave in conditioner or other product to give soft smooth curls. These are great! I deep conditioned and curled with mildly damp hair (about 80-90% dry)
Things I liked about the curlers,easy to secure just twistCute! Much more attractive that old fashion rollersNon heat makes it great for travel, Safe for hairSoft texture made it easier to sleep in that hard rollers. Although you still feel little lumps under your head at least they are soft
When you remove, roll in opposite direction, do not fight with the hair it will get stuck. The foam compresses, the hair winds tighter around the roller = bad times.I would suggest placing the roller on the top and roll the hair up so the ends are not rolled as tightly.
