The Best Dry Conditioner

spell and the gypsy collective Wild Bloom Midi Dress

I know I’m not alone in saying that dry shampoo is one of the most important beauty products of busy lady life (for those of us who have oily hair and care about this kind of thing).

joico-blonde-life-violet-shampoo

During my drastic cut and color, I blurted out, “I need to get purple shampoo. First thing in the morning.” I was experiencing what I will call “brass anxiety.” My hair has red undertones, so whenever I go lighter I fear my strands turning tawny. My stylist could sense my fear was real. She sent me home with a little care package.…
