Introducing The Most Invisible Of All Dry Shampoos

verb-embed
I didn't think I was that picky about dry shampoo. Celebrities and pros could wax poetic about their Klorane, editors could write sonnets about their René Furterer. But, not me. Nope — as soon as the first drugstore dry shampoo hit the shelves, I snapped it up and proceeded to use it (and it exclusively) to tame my locks between shampoos...mostly on the days when I shacked up in NYC instead of riding the commuter train back to the suburbs. Nothing like being a little dirty to make one truly feel like a part of the big city, right?
I continued to buy bottles of this OG dry shampoo when I ran out (or, more likely, when the nozzle clogged beyond repair, as this product was wont to do). Sure, the product turned my roots a bit gray. Yes, the clay in the formula kind of made my hair gunky while it was working its mattifying, volumizing wonders. But, hey, if it's not broke, don't fix it, right? Or, alternately, if you are a broke, struggling actress — which I was at the time — you buy the affordable version of a product, and avoid torturing yourself by experiencing its better, more expensive brethren.
Whelp, long story short, I became a beauty editor, and my first deskside appointment was with this really awesome indie hair-care line called Verb. Verb products are incredible across the board — I love their Volumizing Spray and Ghost Oil, but my favorite product, without a doubt, is their dry shampoo. I was terrified of the idea of using a dry shampoo that sprinkled right onto your roots, instead of spraying on, but as I happily learned, this stuff is totally and completely invisible. It cleans your hair, leaves it fluffy and barely scented, as if nothing was there at all. Even after multiple days of using it in a row. And, damn, if I'm not the happiest unshowered lady as a result.
Verb Dry Shampoo, $14, available at Woodley and Bunny.
