How to: Get Fresh Hair Between Washes

I don’t know about you all but I’m finding that with each year that I grow older (mind you, it’s getting alarmingly faster each year) – I’m finding less and less time to do basic things in my life. Going for walks along the beach, taking long relaxing baths with a book, sitting around in front of a mirror and playing with all your new make up goodies are all a distant memory. Washing my hair now has become a race for me because I just want to get out and get started on my day of endless to-dos .


I wanted to share with all you time poor schmucks out there two of my favourite Aveda products that will be your superhero for the days where washing your hair is just not an option. As a mom-to-be I suspect this will become a luxury for me to find time to give my hair some proper TLC. Enter Shampure Dry Shampoo and Thermal Dry Conditioner from Aveda.


Together, these two products can revitalize second-day hair or fourth (let’s hope it doesn’t get to that stage too often but I’m not judging either) with its naturally derived ingredients leave your hair smelling so fresh that you’ll forget you haven’t actually washed your hair for a week!


Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo & Thermal Dry Conditioner

What It Will Do For Your Hair

  • How To Aveda Dry ShampooThe Dry Shampoo will absorb any excess oil and give your hair the necessary boost it needs.
  • The oil absorbing ingredients include cornstarch, oat kernel flour and tapioca starch, which combined, will leave you hair feeling revived, fragrant and voluminous.
  • Using dry shampoo will allow you to preserve your blowout or style for an extra day or two.
  • The Thermal Dry Conditioner will prevent the matte and dry look that dry shampoo can sometimes leave your hair with – particularly if suffer from dry hair already.
  • The jojoba and sunflower oils will work to nourish and hydrate your hair. It will also act as a perfect detangler whilst restoring shine and moisture.
  • It will also act as a heat protectant for when you need to use styling tools like curlers or straighteners.


How to Use Shampure Dry Shampoo & Thermal Dry Conditioner

Step 1: Use Shampure Dry Shampoo

How To Use Aveda Thermal Dry Conditioner

Apply the powder mist directly to your roots and lift layer by layer into your hair and then massage this into your scalp with your fingertips to absorb the oil.


Make sure you first tip the bottle upside down to get the powder to the nozzle and then lightly squeeze or you’ll find yourself with a powder explosion.


Step 2: Use Shampure Thermal Dry Conditioner

Make sure to shake the bottle well and focus the spray on the mid to end lengths of your hair and work this through with your fingers. Then simply style using your either a styling tool or any other styling product you like to use. My go-to is to use a curling iron when my hair is feeling a little unruly. 


Make sure you don’t spray directly at the roots because you have natural oils there and this is somewhere where you don’t want the extra moisture.


Why You Need It

Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo Thermal Dry ConditionerThis isn’t something that you substitute permanently for washing your hair but a great alternative for when you are strapped for time.

    I also use dry shampoo a couple of time a week. I’ve have tested out so many of them and they never work that great. I’ll have to try Aveda Shampure, I’ve used the shampoo before and loved it. I’ve never heard of a dry conditioner, I need that as well.

  • RebelSweetHrt

    I’m not a fan of dry shampoo, though I have tried it a few times when I was at the hospital. For me, nothing beats washing your hair with the real thing. 🙂

  • I seriously need to invest in some good dry shampoo. I’ve always washed my hair every day, and I know that’s terribly unhealthy for it – and it strips the color (which, as a redhead, is no bueno). I’ll have to try the Aveda one and see how it works for me. Thanks for sharing!

  • Your hair looks so healthy!! I love dry shampoo, but have never heard of the Thermal Dry Conditioner. I love Aveda and the 2 step processs sounds really good for when I’m on the go. I’ll have to check it out!


  • Krissie Colton

    I love dry shampoo in between washes, i’ve never used Aveda products but have heard they are amazing

  • Candace Hampton

    I wish I could get away with using dry shampoo in my hair, but because I have a different hair texture, I have to use different hair products to achieve the same result. I use something called a “cowash” which works perfectly in-between my shampoos. So good you found products that work for your hair!

  • Julie Ventura Plagens

    Beautiful hair. The product seems to work great on you. I’ll have to try it.

  • Very detailed instructions! I’ve used AVEDA a long time ago. I want to check out their Thermal Dry Conditioner. It sounds like it would be great for my hair.

  • Deddeh Howard

    Aveda dry shampoo is the best, I used this all the time on my trips and I love it. Your hair look amazing.
