AOL Fall Beauty Awards

filed under:

For the past month, I’ve been working with AOL on their Fall Beauty Awards as a judge for hair products. Blonde hair can easily get damaged if you don’t take care of it and treat it with the right products so I’m always researching and trying out new hair products. As an AOL hair judge, I’ve tried handfuls of different products including the nominated dry shampoos, anti-frizzes, treatments, hairsprays, and heat protectors. My favorite products to try were the dry shampoos because I use dry shampoo more frequently in my everyday life than I do some of the other products. You can see all the products and meet all the judges here!

The AOL Fall Beauty Awards nominated four dry shampoos for the award of the “Best Dry Shampoo.” The nominees were:

Living Proof Perfect Hair Dry

Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher

Amika Perk Up

Drybar Detox

Over the last few weeks, I was so excited to try all four dry shampoos. As a teacher, I run around like crazy and constantly maintain a very busy schedule during and after school. Sometimes, not everything gets checked off my to do list. If I’m too exhausted to shower before school in the morning, I rely on dry shampoo to get my hair through the day. All four dry shampoos have worked like a charm but I have picked my favorite one. My dry shampoo of choice is the Drybar Detox.

I love the Drybar Detox because it livens up and brightens up my old, tired hair to make it look new and thick again. It makes my hair feel fresh again because it absorbs oils, which makes my hair look and feel clean instead of a day or two old. In the few weeks leading up to getting my hair highlighted blonde, I always feel like my hair looks dirty, even when it’s not, because of my roots. The Drybar Detox is truly my winner because it helps me in this time of need… it adds body to my roots that desperately need a lift. Hallelujah! While all four dry shampoos worked wonders in my hair, I have to say the Drybar Detox tops my list, followed closely by the Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher and the Living Proof Perfect Hair Dry.

Winner: Drybar Detox

  1. I swear by dry shampoo! I’m finding that the one I used does not keep my hair looking fresh for the whole day though. I am looking forward to trying Drybar Detox thanks to your recommendation!

    1. Hi Larisa! I actually felt the same way about dry shampoo until about a year ago… I didn’t see the point or the need but I’ve gotten completely into it! It can actually be a lifesaver and I think you’ll love the DryBar dry shampoo! Give it a try 🙂
      XO, Jillian
