The salt to pepper: Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo and Dry Conditioner

Purology title

Bonnie and Clyde, Thelma and Louise, Mario and Luigi, some things were just meant to come in pairs.  Although you can just shampoo your hair and that’s it, usually a conditioner is thrown in the mix for the perfect cleanse.

Dry shampoo has been around for a while now as it’s perfect for those on-the-go who either A) don’t have time to wash their hair, or B) want to prolong the life of their hairstyles (hey, professional blowouts are expensive!).  But what about dry conditioner?

I’ve never heard of, or even thought about dry conditioner until I saw that Pureology came out with one to accompany their Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo.  I absolutely love Pureology products as they make your hair look and feel great.  They are super expensive but oh so worth it.

The Fresh Approach system is the first complete dry cleansing collection for colour-treated hair.  Because waster abrasion is the number one cause of hair colour fade, a dry shampoo and conditioner can save your colour-treated locks and keep that colour you spent hundreds on nice and fresh.

Okay, so we all know that dry shampoo is ideal for controlling oil build-up at the roots and for adding some extra volume.  You spray the product directly on dry hair, focusing on the roots and then brush or finger-comb through.  Dry conditioner on the other hand instantly tames and moisturizes dry, undisciplined hair, as well as controls static. It also adds some shine. Instead of focusing on the roots, you focus on the mid-lengths to ends of your hair.

There are a few brands that have come out with dry conditioners, but I have just tried Pureology’s version.  I really like the Dove Dry Shampoo, but I have to say that both the dry shampoo and conditioner give Dove a run for their money.  These don’t leave a coloured film on your hair (neither does Dove, but it’s common for a lot of other brands), and the system has their Antifade Complex in it, which extends the life of colour and enhances vibrancy for superior colour retention, as well as minerals obsidian and smithsonite, and orange oil, which deeply conditions and nourishes.  Oh, and then there’s the fact that this stuff smells amazing. When it comes to dry shampoos, I’m not picky, as long as they do their job and don’t leave my hair looking starchy and white.  And then I smelled this stuff and seriously, I would buy this just for the scent alone.  It’s hard to describe, but this smells so luxurious, it’s like a Neiman Marcus or Barney’s for your hair.  It smells expensive. Seriously, you need to give these a whiff.

Before and after

At C$23.35 a pop, these are pricey but they work.  I feel like a dry shampoo is a must nowadays and the combination of the two will have your day-five hair looking like you just came from the salon.

Have you tried a dry conditioner?
