Who here wishes they had bought stock in the dry shampoo companies?!?! Yeah, with three teenage girls…that would be me!!!! Lord Help Us!!!!

But I also don’t like the way it tickles my throat when I use it…which is probably a sign of it not being good for me!!!! So I went out searching for an alternative using my essential oils….and I found one!!!! And I’m happy to share with you!!!
