Many people aren't aware that merely getting your hair wet with water is very harmful to color-treated hair. While certain tap waters are even worse than others, the truth of the matter that even distilled water takes away from the life of your color. Water abrasion and other factors strip color.
From a traveler's perspective, washing your hair can be problematic. Some European shower stalls are just weird and difficult to use. /Whether you take a power converter that weighs the same as brick -- just to also use your own blow dryer -- or use the hotel's wimpy dryer, the results are never satisfactory. You might be exposed to harsh weather where your hair could snap off if you don't dry it.
Let's face it, too: many times, you're so jet-lagged, you'd rather log in more pillow time and less hair-do time. This concept works when the alarm failed to go off at home, when you get a last minute call to go out, etc.
In the past, people with color-treated hair were loathe to use a dry shampoo, because that hair-type needs conditioner. Now Pureology has Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo and Dry Conditioner! I was very glad to be hosted to experience it!
With the dry shampoo, you shake and spray it near your roots. It definitely makes you feel fresher, without a drying, crunchy or alcohol "blown" look. With the dry conditioner, you shake it and spray from mid-lengths to ends. It gives a polished, modern finish to your hair, not a 1980's sprayed-out look. Your hair is totally touchable!
This is what they say about it:
Key Benefits Oil absorption at scalp area
Softness, condition and shine through ends
Hair Type Combination of oily hair & scalp and dry mid-lengths & ends
Application Apply Dry Shampoo at the scalp and Dry Condition from mid-lengths to ends
Free of Salt and Parabens
Orange Oil : An essential oil that deeply conditions and nourishes, leaving hair with satin shine and a vibrant finish
Refreshing Minerals: Obsidian and Smithsonite minimize odor and weightlessly absorb moisture without clogging pores
AntiFade Complex: A potent mixture of antioxidants, including Heliogenol and Vitamins C & E, for maximum colour retention
I tried a 4.2 oz size of the products. I don't know if they make an under 3 oz size, but that would obviously be great for TSA/1 quart ziplock purposes.
