Put this on your ESSENTIALS list: Marc Anthony Clear Dry Shampoo

marc-anthony-clear-dry-shampoo-2For someone who is rather lazy by nature, making a commitment to my health by working out 6 days a week has been challenging to say the least. I swear, I can justify NOT working out so many ways I even impress myself with my insane creativity. One justification that just doesn’t work anymore is how awful working out makes my hair look, thanks to Marc Anthony Clear Dry Shampoo ($9).                                                                                             sample

Marc Anthony Clear Dry ShampooI have long, color-treated hair that is a pain in the butt to wash, dry, then style, so I try to go as long as possible in between shampoos. I can easily get four days from a good shampoo and blow out…unless I exercise. After an hour of cardio and strength training, my hair goes totally limp and smells like sweat.   I shower every day, but there is no way I am going to wash and dry my hair every day – so my absolutely essential hair care product is Marc Anthony Clear Dry Shampoo.

There are lots of great dry shampoos on the market, but I like this one in particular for several reasons. First, it does a great job at absorbing sweat and oil. It also gives my limp, yucky hair lots of volume and texture. Marc Anthony says it was developed with Nanotechnology and Zeolite, a micro-porous mineral, to cleanse hair without a chalky residue or gritty texture. Some dry shampoos are white, which makes using them a little tricky for those of us with darker hair. The Clear Dry Shampoo is (as the name suggests) clear, so it works for any hair color and doesn’t flake or build up, even when used several days in a row.

Here are my dry shampoo tips: trust me, it’s an absolute necessity to spray dry shampoo at least 6 inches away from your scalp. Any closer and it doesn’t diffuse properly, which gives less impressive results. I typically work out at night and I use my dry shampoo the next morning. I brush my hair, then spray Clear Dry Shampoo all along my hair line. After that, I section my hair and spray just at the roots. Then I clip my hair up and go about my business for at least ten minutes. It’s probably not necessary to wait that long – the point is you’ve got to let the spray completely dry before brushing or combing.  Once it’s dry, I unclip my hair and rub my roots with my fingers. Since my hair is already brushed, the finger trick gives another boost of volume and the effect is like a miracle.

Since my hair is no longer a great excuse not to work out, I have been making my goal of 6 days a week no problem. My hair looks terrific, and I still don’t have to spend an hour every day washing, drying, and styling. Instead, Marc Anthony Clear Dry Shampoo gives me instant gratification while I wait for the not-so-instant gratification of exercising. If you don’t have this yet, go get it!!  You can find it at Ulta and other large drugstores.  – Lisa

Comments

  1. This is such a great dry shampoo!

  2. I wish I could love dry shampoo but I can’t. It’s me, I’m weird

  3. I’m going to have to add this to my list of dry shampoos to try. I have a few top picks, but I’m always up for trying out a new one, especially if goes on clear.

  4. I have a friend that keeps telling me to try dry shampoo and I even have a few samples. I really should try them out.

  5. Love that it’s clear! I wish they all were.

  6. I love dry shampoo but I get frustrated that it doesn’t work as well, a second time. This sounds as if it would. I’ll have to pick it up and try it.

    I love dry shampoo my hair is so dry brittle and falls out like crazy due to chemo meds. I can’t wash my hair every day. Dry shampoo makes your hair smell great and look clean. They even give this to you in the hospital after you have surgery and are in the hospital for long time. I love it!

  8. I’ll put this on my dry shampoo list.

  9. Elizabeth O. says

    I’ve never tried dry shampoo before! Thanks for sharing your experience with it, this one sounds like a great brand especially if your hair is difficult to manage!

  10. This is the first time that I heard dry shampoo and it sounds great

  11. YES! This is my most used dry shampoo because it’s so great (an pretty inexpensive.) I always have a few cans backup.

  12. I think dry shampoo is great. It’s nice for those that need a quick shampoo and can’t get to the shower. I’ll have to check more in to this brand.

  13. Absorbing the sweat is a big one for me. I love dry shampoo for a quick boost when an entire “get ready” routine isn’t viable.

  14. I am yet to find a dry shampoo that does not leave chalky residue or give my hair gritty texture. I have not heard about Marc Anthony’s Clear Dry Shampoo before, but have to try it out asap!

  15. I never heard about any “clear dry shampoo” as I mostly use Ayurveda shampoo, but this sounds good so I’ll try this one also.

  16. Dry shampoos are my bff! I would love to try a clear version!
