Dry shampoo

Just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents.

I recommend Pronto dry shampoo by Oscar Blandi. I prefer the powder version over the aerosol spray version--it lasts longer and looks better to me. You can get it at Sephora or Ulta for about $11.00 for the 1 oz size, which has lasted me about a year using it an average of once a week. Anytime I've gotten a little sweaty (like at Disney) and don't have time to totally wash my hair and start over or if I washed my hair the day before and it still looks pretty good just a bit oily at the roots, this stuff works great to absorb the oil and look fresh as new. I used to use a bit of baby powder and rub it in my palms and then rub it through my hair at the roots, which accomplishes basically the same thing, especially when it has been too long between highlight jobs and my roots are getting dark, but I like this soooo much better. It smells great, and doesn't feel as gross by the end of the day. Now this IS NOT a substitute for a real water and shampoo wash, but it does do the trick for a day in the above situations for me. BTW, I am a blonde (darkish blond), so I am not sure how the white powder would work on dark hair.

HTH someone. Loving the tips on this thread!!!!

When we're dreaming about tucking our Lush items into our Vera Bradley backpacks and checking to make sure we have what we need to apply under our girls why yes we might be Dis'ing a bit ~~

Need to add we are one bare mineral wearing, waxing, de -frizzing, no sweaty tatas bunch!
Took me a couple posts to figure out BFE .... is that in the US? Canada? UK?


Another plug for Cake's hair/body powder, it comes in two shades, one lighter/one darker & I mix them to get a more "natural" look

I know that some people dont tell their doctors that they are going on vacation. But I make sure to have a check up right before we go just to make sure everything's okay! I did talk to my doctor about things that could help out with walking and he prescribed me a Anti-inflamitory medicine to take once a day with Advil. Needless to say I dont have any trouble going to the parks and walking all day. I'm also slightly pooh-sized and it helps out alot!

I did have the funniest dream the other night that DH recreated our wedding, and then said he moved up our WDW trip to leave that day, and added an extra week.

My reply? "Where are our ADRs?" After throwing a hissy fit about not having them and going on the DxDP, I asked for the park hours so I could start calling to make something happen.

Then I said "OMG. I haven't ordered anything from LUSH yet, we haven't gotten in AK's mini hipster, I haven't bought bodyglide or moleskin, I need to reorder my bare minerals, I need to redo my planning journal and NOTHING IS PACKED IN PLASTIC BAGS!"

Yep, I've been Dissing too much

Hi Manda

It's like reading a post I wrote myself! (Although I haven't used bodyglide......yet)
