Have you jumped on the dry shampoo train yet? If not, you really must. They are a great way to freshen up! Additionally, when you to shampoo less frequently, it helps to extend the life of your hair color and blowout. You can even use them on clean hair to add a little texture and volume.

Dry shampoos are generally available in powder or spray form and are applied at the scalp before being brushed through.  If you want to get geeky, they work because they contain  starches that absorb oils. The starch varies from product to product.

I'm thrilled that Paul Mitchell has just launched its new version called Dry Wash. It's part of the brand new Express Dry line along with Stay Strong Hairspray. I've been using Dry Wash for the past week or so and it works great and smells clean and fresh.

I was so excited for the dry shampoo, I almost ignored the hairspray. But I tried Stay Strong this morning and I LOVE IT. The superfine mist dries on contact, leaves no sticky residue and doesn't have that telltale "hairspray" smell. It has a powerful hold but it's weightless. Not sure how they did it but it's really fantastic.

The good folks at Paul Mitchell have offered my readers the chance to win an Express Dry Stylist Kit including one full-size Dry Wash Express Dry Waterless Shampoo, one full-size Stay Strong Express Dry Strong Hold Hairspray, and one limited edition teasing brush. These products are so new, they aren't available for purchase on the website yet! Here I am playing with my set (and the Vine app) this morning:

To enter to win, leave a comment on this post and let me know if you are already a fan of dry shampoo. Which one do you currently use? Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest for 3 entries a piece. Just be sure to let me know in the comments. The winner will be chosen by random drawing on March 15, 2013. Must be 18 years or older, US resident to win.

  2. I LOVE dry shampoo, especially as a mom of a newborn and a toddler. It makes me look so much more put together than I actually am.

  3. I have not used dry shampoo yet but look forward to adding it to my collection. Sounds like such a useful and convenient product.

  4. I use dry shampoo in order to keep myself from washing my hair every day. My hair tends to look greasy quickly if I don’t either wash it or use the dry shampoo. Right now I just have some of the Tres semme stuff from the drug store. It works but I am sure the Paul Mitchell stuff smells awesome!

  12. I’ve only used the dry shampoo by Ion which I got for my Sally’s renewal this year. It really helps if you have bangs because they don’t look icky as soon! I’d love to try the Paul Mitchell one!!!

  13. I use the little travel size bottle which I think is Tresemme. I don’t think it’s that great (usually stick to corn starch!) so I’d love to try a professional brand. Thanks!

  14. And I now Like you on Facebook.

  19. I have never tried dry shampoo but I travel a lot and hate how hotels dry out my hair and skin. This would help!

    Would love to try it.

  20. I would love to try this! I’ve been looking for a great dry shampoo and this sounds (and looks) amazing!

  21. So awesome! Thanks for the opportunity, I have never tried dry shampoo but I’m definitely curiously about it.

  22. Looking forward to trying this! It sounds awesome, what a brilliant idea! And I love Paul Mitchell products.

  23. I would LOVE to find a dry shampoo that works for me. I have fine hair and lots of it. I hate to wash it ever day since it dries out my hair but it starts looking greasy on day two. Years ago I had a brand I loved but they stopped making it. Since then, I’ve tried many dry shampoos and most haven’t worked for me. I’ve tried Oscar Blandi, Dove and a few others with not much success. So, I’m thrilled Paul Mitchell has a line because I’ve always had a lot of luck with his brand. Can’t wait to try it!

  24. With having a dad to watch and grandkids that would be great to have dry shampoo to use. I did the powder shampoo 50 years ago. It wasnt to good. Thank goodness it only took them 50 years to make a good one.

  26. Dry shampoo has changed my life, so glad you decided to write about it Sonya! I have been using the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo powder for the last 4-5 months between washings, Im trying to only wash my hair 2-3 times/week. I really like it, but I bought some of the Paul Mitchell at Pincurls and it’s fantastic as well! I think the Paul Mitchell is a great styling product for my hair by adding volume and texture, while the powder is better at absorbing oil. Can’t wait to try the new hairspray!

  27. I haven’t tried dry shampoo yet, but I’ve been wanting to. I follow you on Facebook and pinterest, haven’t jumped on the twitter bandwagon yet :)

  38. Honestly, I have not tried it yet. I have heard mixed reviews from friends. I can wash my hair daily and it is fine, so I’d be curious to switch up my routine with dry shampoo.

  39. I’ve used several brands. Hated Big Sexy Hair’s, the nozzle constantly clogged. I currently have a cheap brand – Suave, it works decently but the smell is so permeating I hate when I need to use it. The smell hangs around all day.

  53. I have heard nothing bad about dry shampoo!
    In the past, I bought 2 cans of dry shampoo from bed head but the can would freeze up and I couldnt use it anymore. So I just got discouraged from purchasing any at all.
    Usually I will just use baby powder. I really would love to try Paul Mitchells line… hopefully the cans wouldnt freeze up! ; ) haha.
    Thanks for the opportunity!
