Because life's too short to wait for your hair to dry.

Everybody has to do it, but it somehow manages to be one of the most annoying tasks in the world. And frankly, there are way too many good excuses to not wash your hair. Let's take a minute to thank the gods of dry shampoo.

1. I'm Working Out Later

You can't get your hair clean if you're just going to get it dirty again, don't be ridiculous! Who cares if you need to be at work in the meantime.

2. I've Got A Date Tomorrow

But what about today? What about today?

3. The Wet Look Is In

Grease does not equal wet. Repeat after me: grease does not equal wet.

4. I Can't Wash It At Night

You can't sleep with wet hair, you'll catch a cold!

5. I Can't Wash It In The Morning

You can't go outside with wet hair, you'll catch a cold! Wait...

6. It Helps Your Do Stay In Place

Maybe if you skip one day, but when you skip three...?

7. This Is Why Dry Shampoo Was Invented

It wasn't invented to be used five times in a week. Sorry.

8. I'm Wearing Athletisure

I know you think it look like you've just been working out. But it doesn't... it just doesn't.

9. We Wash Our Hair Too Much Anyway

This one is actually probably true. The only problem is, you've trained your hair to be greasy. So now it is greasy.

10. It's Just Brunch With My Bestie

They'll understand, sure. And you're convinced you'll wash it right after... but you won't.

11. I'm Saving Water

That would be true... if you weren't spending twenty minutes just staring into space in the shower.

12. Nobody Can Tell With An Up-Do

They can, though. I promise you: they can.

13. Curly Hair Doesn't Look Greasy

I tell myself this. It's not true. I sit on a throne of lies.

14. But I Don't WANNA

OK, it's not an excuse— it's just a fact. And you know what? You don't have to do anything you don't want to do.


Skipping a wash can easily turn into skipping three. I mean, you're only seeing your friends anyway— right? You ain't got time for a blow dry.
