10 dry shampoo problems every gal knows too well

*clutches Batiste* My precioouuuusss.

DRY SHAMPOO IS one of the great inventions of modern times – right up there with the polio vaccine. But that doesn’t mean it’s without its problems. We know them all too well.

1. It doesn’t really solve all your hair issues

Not if your hair gets greasy quickly, anyway. Chance putting it on instead of showering in the morning, and by midday your fringe will be lank, yet smelling of ‘floral and flirty blush’.

2. That cotton wool-like feeling your hair gets after using it

No matter how much time you spend brushing it out.

3. When you spray it too close to your head and get a fetching gray streak

4. When you forget to massage it into the back of your head

Might be time to get the roots touched up. Jk #dryshampooproblems

Hey there, Pepe LePew!

5. Or end up with a unintentional bouffant

6. When it sort of flakes off and you pray to god people don’t assume it’s dandruff

But why would they think otherwise? Of course they think it’s dandruff.

7. The good stuff is so bloody dear

8. When someone asks to borrow yours and you monitor their every spray

“If you use it all, this friendship is over, Karen. Over.”

9. Knowing that one can runs out so, so fast

*sighs* FINE. If we have to.
