Pssssst! I Found a Better Dry Shampoo.

So there I was, sitting in my hair stylist's chair chatting about not washing my hair everyday. This is a common conversation when I go in there. We also talk about parting my hair on the other side so as to hide all the baby hairs that stick up like a rooster all the way down my part, and how I just can't bring myself to do it because it feels weird.

(Motherhood. Moving on.)
She casually said that another stylist in the salon was using "Pssst" and liked it.
Me: "What?"
Her: "Pssssst."
Me: "Is it a secret?"
Her: "No. It's Pssssst."
Me: "I don't get it. What do you mean?"
Her: "No, the name is actually P-S-S-S-S-T or something like that."

{And scene.}

Well, a few weeks ago I was perusing Walgreen's for a deep conditioner (that supposedly Pantene has just put out, but I can find anywhere) and I came across the aforementioned Pssssst!

Girls, I have to tell you that it's 100 times better than the Tresemme and Suave. No powdery residue, smells like lime and coconut, rather than a product X which you used in Junior High. It truly makes your hair look clean, and instead of gritty, your hair feels normal. I bought mine for $6.99. While it runs a few dollars more than the other products mentioned, it performs that much better, so I'd say it's worth the price.

Apparently it was popular in the 70s, and the can says "new package design" so maybe that was done in the early 80s from the looks of the design. I think there's a lesson here for all of us -- don't judge a dry shampoo by the can.


  1. Good to know! I always use Batiste from Sally's but the nearest store is 25 miles away. The average person would probably be appalled at how often I (don't) wash my hair :)

  2. I've heard of Batiste but never tried it. I'll add it to the list. My hair looks best on day 3, but I rarely let it go that long because it looks so weird on day 2!
