The "How To" of Dry Shampoo with Cibu

Cibu Ka Pow Dry Shampoo

It’s hot, sweaty and pretty much unbearable during the summer months here in Vegas and I certainly don’t want to wash my hair every morning, or even every other morning.

With my busy schedule plus the added Mad Max-esc unbearable heat, by Friday I’m pretty much running on 50% Dry Shampoo and 50% Coffee.

Blowing out my hair is a sweat filled process full of sectioning, blow-drying, heating and styling that I would equate to a 30 minute work-out at the gym- which is why I was obviously thrilled when I became familiar with the hair refreshing nirvana that is Dry Shampoo.

For those of you that have yet to make this life changing discovery, dry shampoo is a spray sent straight from the heavens to restore volume, texture and soak up excess oil from second, third, fourth, (cough, fifth, ahem, cough) day hair, all without water.

I use Dry Shampoo only slightly less than oxygen and my holy grail of Dry Shampoo is Cibu Ka Pow Dry Shampoo.

Ka Pow is so amazing it pretty much B%^#@ slapped all the other dry shampoos out of my medicine cabinet.

This spray will extend the life of your blowout, absorbs oils and is perfect for creating that tossled beachy texture. The best thing about Ka Pow is that it works on various hair types and human hair extensions!

Last week I watched a model spray dry shampoo all over the top of her head, like hairspray.  My inner beauty blogger voice was screaming “You are using that WRONG”!  but my outer stylist voice stayed quiet.

Alot of people fall into this beauty-gone-wrong trap with products they hear a buzz about and purchase without knowing how to use them properly.

So I, being a dry shampoo aficionado am going to break it down for you.  Step by step how to get the most out of your Dry Shampoo.

Tips for Applying Dry Shampoo:

  1. Start with dry, dirty hair. NEVER use Dry Shampoo on wet hair.
  2. You want to hold the nozzle around six to eight inches away from the hair and don’t focus on one area for too long, to avoid product build-up.
  3. Separate your hair into sections and apply throughout your locks at the roots…. only the roots. Focus on the crown of your head.
  4. Once you’ve evenly sprayed the dry shampoo into the hair, massage it into your scalp like you would wet shampoo in the shower – making sure it’s all rubbed in and evenly distributed.
  5. For added volume, flip your hair upside down, then use your fingers to blend the powder, shake out your roots, and allow the dry shampoo to move towards your ends.

Follow these steps and your Dry Shampoo will give you great hair for days…and days…and days.. and then maybe one more day. LOL

Cibu Ka Pow Dry Shampoo is available at and select hair salons.

Everybody Loves a Dirty Girl- B. The Product

Some of us are dirty girls–addicted to blow-outs and obsessed with making them last longer. 

Sometimes it’s 2 or 3 days before you wash your hair, maybe even a week.  In order to keep our locks (and color) looking lush between washings we turn to dry shampoos.

The idea behind dry shampoo is to remove excess oil from the hair follicles without having to actually wash the hair using a traditional shampoo and water.

Anyone that has ever tried a dry shampoo knows that it can be a blessing and a curse.  They are usually made of a powder and unless you are a blond, you end up with a powdery residue that you feverishly try to rub and blend into your hair, but it always seems to look powdery at the scalp.

A few weeks ago I was browsing through Neiman Marcus when a little silver bottle caught my eye.

B. the Product  Dry Cleaned dry shampoo.  It looked interesting so I turned it over to read the back: “Remember: Everyone loves a dirty girl”  OK they had me.  Now I MUST try this product.

The first thing I noticed is that Dry Cleaned is an aerosol dry shampoo.  I hadn’t seen it in that form before.  It comes out clear, silky and doesn’t leave powder on your scalp!  Hallelujah!

I love this product so much!  I wanted to show you how different it is from most dry shampoos so I took a “leading” dry shampoo brand and compared it to Dry Cleaned.

Here’s how it went:

First I tried B. the Product  Dry Cleaned on my hair.

It went on clear and clean with no further steps. Plus my scalp felt fresh and reinvigorated!

Next (on the other side) I tried a “leading” dry shampoo brand.

Powdery mess that I have to try to rub in!

After quite a bit of rubbing, it’s still a mess and leaves tiny specs in my hair that look like dandruff.

Besides the lack of mess, one of the benefits to B. the Product  Dry Cleaned is that it also adds volume to your hair!  You can actually see how the Dry Cleaned side has more volume!  See the difference below!

I spoke with Brandon Martinez celebrity hair stylist, owner and creator of B. The Product who told me why B. The Product stands out from the rest.

 “I was frustrated that there were so many products out there that just didn’t work.  I really wanted to create a line that was affordable, provided great styling and instant gratification.  B. The Product Dry Cleaned is clear and doesn’t leave a powder residue like many other products on the market.  It works for any hair color and doesn’t weight your hair down.  It actually provides volume.”

I am sold!  The product is amazing.  Check it out for yourself!  You can grab some at Neiman Marcus!
