3 Alternatives To Dry Shampoo, None Of Which Involve Showering

May 2013

Ouidad Moisture Infusing & Refreshing Spray ike pretty much all Ouidad products, made with curly hair in mind; but it's a damn fine choice for pretty much any thick, dry hair type. Its blend of panthenol (that's a slightly faster way to say provitamin B5), ginseng, spirulina, and other plant-y stuff helps brittle hair look healthier without weighing it down--your sweaty roots are already doing that just fine, thankyouverymuch. It can also be used as a detangler on wet hair. Again with the double duty! Dry shampoo is a one trick pony! detangler

I found the perfect product just in time for summer, Ouidad's Wave Create Sea Spray . My hair is thick and curly and it is difficult to find products that do not weigh my curls or waves down, making them look flat and greasy. Ouidad Sea Spray is fantastic; I just flip my head and spray into sections. When I flip my head back up, my hair is beautiful, flowing, tousled waves. The ingredients of seawater and salt create volume and texture while making hair healthier as you apply the product. Ouidad is unbelievable because usually spray is hard and sticks to my head, making my hair extremely dry. Ouidad's Wave Create Sea Spray has a triple function, the algae extracts help to condition hair-maintaining elasticity; is rich in B12 amino acids that deeply nourish your hair. The spray literally creates gorgeous texture, while moisturizing your curls or waves. My beauty routine for my hair this summer will consist of throwing this one product into a beach bag and I'm ready for day or night with tousled waves for the beach or beautiful ringlets for dinner by the water.

At this point in my natural hair life, much like my friendships, I keep a close circle of products. However, every now and then a new one attempts to infiltrate the circle. When I received Ouidad's Curl Recovery Meltdown Extreme Repair Mask in the mail I thought why not be open to new friends. After a proper detangle and shampoo session, I applied a generous amount of the repair mask to each of my already sectioned damp hair. The creamy texture made for a smooth and easy application. I was able to coat my delicate strands with ease and achieve complete coverage with particular concentration on my ends. I allowed it to stay on for about 20 minutes and then thoroughly rinsed. While this is more of a repair treatment product, I used it in lieu of a deep conditioner. When I received the product I immediately took to the instagram air waves! The end result was soft, moisturized, refreshed curls and I had more hair on my head than in my bathtub. As with all of my reviews, I used it a minimum of three times before sharing so I can get an accurate assessment of how it works for my hair. I used the repair mask in conjunction with the Ouidad Curl Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner. If you didn't get a chance to read my experience with this product, click here. My hair is color treated and is very porous so this treatment had my name written all over it. I'm happy to say, my curls and I have a new friend in Ouidad. Ouidad seems to be launching new products left and right. This is the third of their Curl Recovery selection. Good news for us curlies! For information on how to purchase this product and other Ouidad products, visit their website. Thank you Ouidad!

Fashionista: Tell us your curly story. Raakhee Mirchandani: Curly hair is a tough hand to play when you're in middle in school in suburban New Jersey in the '90s. Growing up, all I ever wanted was to look like DJ Tanner. Those perfect poufed bangs, the soft lion's mane. I'm from a family of women blessed with glossy, luscious, Indian hair. The kind you can run your fingers through, that hangs down to their waists. This head was torture. My hair stuck straight out and for a while I had a weird ‘fro, the result of a bad haircut and lack of styling products. All that changed once I discovered Ouidad, the patron saint of curly girls. This mane is high maintenance. And expensive! I've got loose gorgeous curls that tend to be dry so I deep condition every single day. (I only shampoo once a week, but I alternate between Oribe's Moisture Masque and Ouidad's 12 Minute Deep Treatment daily.)

After a recent foot injury forced me to give up my thrice weekly run, I retired my beloved Asics in favor of my goggles. But while swimming two to three times a week has proven to be an incredible exercise option and even alleviated some of my foot pain, my hair and skin are suffering the effects of chlorinated water and a tight swimming cap. “Swimming in chlorinated water can weaken the bonds in your hair making it harder for your hair to stay hydrated, and also making the strands break more easily,” says Jessica Wu, MD, a dermatologist and the author of Feed Your Face. She adds that chlorine can irritate your skin, making it look and feel dry and flaky. So while the irony is not lost on me that I'm literally swimming in H2O and can't reap the hydrating benefits, I had to look to some outside sources to keep my skin and hair moisturized after hitting the pool. To Quench Parched Strands I've found that using leave-in conditioner like Ouidad Botanical Boost Moisture Infusing Refreshing Spray right after finishing my laps (yes, my hair still gets wet even in a swim cap) helps counter the drying effects until I hit the shower.
