water-saving shampoo

Maybe you've heard of dry shampoos, a way to clean hair or at least fake it in between washings. In the past, women might throw some cornstarch-based product in their hair, comb it out, and call it day. While this method worked for some, it was more like masking the appearance of dirty hair rather than actually cleaning it. Apparently there's a more effective way to wash hair without water. One such product is Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo -- and they've just come out with a non-aerosol version. Great for travel, going out after the gym, or when you're just in a rush, this dry shampoo is one of those secret weapons of stylists at fashion shows or film sets.

Since I'm always looking for ways to save water and wash my hair sans toxins, I'm just going to have to try it. Get yours here.

Eco bonus: Pierre Fabre, creator of the Klorane Institute, has long been a supporter of plant biodiversity, through research of botanicals for cosmetic and therapeutic applications.
