    thanks Kate; I’ve had really good luck using a couple of Oribe products so I am open to trying the masque. Unrelated, did anyone hear or try this product? I’m so fascinated but not sure I can justify the cost when I have a similar drugstore product that works just fine http://www.davines.com/en/products/view/volume-creator-en

    Idk, I’d definitely try it, but $75 is kind of insane, and I don’t see any reviews of it. Also, Walmart is selling it for $11?!

    I got a travel size of Bumble + Bumble Pret a Powder at Sephora and was really impressed with it. Nice smell, great volume boost, and it is supposed to absorb oil like a dry shampoo too, but my roots weren’t oily yet. It looked a little white at first but I blended it in and it disappeared.

    Well. They bought jet.com and have done a huge push on the e-commerce side to compete with Amazon. I think they are doing what Amazon does and selling the products through third-party vendors.

    yep, clicked through a product and you are absolutely right, it is from a 3rd party vendor and not sold in my local store. Still need the antler kit though so….

    I also recommend a ceramic brush for finishing out with the blow dryer. I switched to one a few years back and it helps to eliminate the need of a straitner or a curling iron.

    rather than start a new thread, I’ll just post here, this is partly directed at @kate bc she suggested washing/styling my hair as little as I can manage. I have dry hair but my problem is I am a gymrat and feel disgusting not washing my hair after a sweaty workout. Is there a way around this, like, would dry shampoo work in this situation? thanks again everyone

    Well, you can’t put dry shampoo on sweaty roots, your hair has to be dry, so I’ve heard that this is the best way to handle it:

    Put your hair up in a loose bun, or high ponytail with a creaseless hair tie, and with a cloth headband around your hairline. After showering, either with a shower cap on or towel wrapped around your head, take your hair down, flip your head over, and dry your roots on cool until dry, then add some dry shampoo, work it in, wait 30 seconds, brush or comb it out, restyle.

    Or, if you HAVE to wet your hair and clean it, try alternating shampoo with using just conditioner to wash your hair. Conditioner alone will clean it, you just have to use a lot. But really it’s best to wet clean and style infrequently, so I’d try to time my sweatiest workouts for days when my hair needs a wash anyway.

    @em I have the same problem — I work out a lot, too, and look a hot mess when I’m done — and I’ve never figured out dry shampoo. (It doesn’t seem like there’s much to figure out, but my hair doesn’t look clean or good after I use it. It still looks kinda dirty, and heavy/weighed down at the roots.) I read in maybe the NYT recently some secrets of a hair stylist and he recommended mixing apple cider vinegar and water (1 drop of apple cider vinegar per ounce of water), saying it has the same effect as dry shampoo without the product buildup if you spray it on your roots. I haven’t tried it but plan to.
