So remember years ago when Julia Roberts said something about not washing her hair for about 2 weeks after she had it professionally styled? Even though I think most of the world thought she sounded crazy, I didn’t and still don’t. I know what she means.

I have long, fine straight hair that can get frizzy depending on the weather. It can also get extremely flat. It can also get extremely crazy looking in general. So it was with great interest that I started reading about drybar. Basically, your hair is washed and styled (you get to choose one of several looks, or your own style) for the flat fee of $35. Of course you can add a scalp massage and deep conditioning treatments for slightly more. Oh yeah, and they have complimentary treats, champagne, and even walk-in appointments! Sadly, there isn’t one located near me, although when we get to New York, I’m definitely getting a monthly membership.
About a month or so, I was totally out of shampoo and conditioner (I had been on a beauty product diet – basically I was forcing myself to use up all the old half-finished whatevers), so I grabbed sample packs of Oscar Blandi’s Jasmine Anti Frizz shampoo and conditioner that I had laying around. I hate the smell of Jasmine, but I used it anyway out of semi-desparation. Whoa. I managed to make my hair look kind of amazing (even with my inept blow drying technique) and I could wear it straight for 3 days in a row and then up in a variety of ways for about 3 more (with the magic of dry shampoo, revitalizing mist, and a hair dryer). All in all way better than the hour each day it would normally take me to wash it, blow it straight, and pray it doesn’t frizz.
I can’t imagine how good my hair would look using this shampoo and conditioner all the time in combination with the people at drybar. Epic, I think. I agree with Julia, if I could make my blow out last 2 weeks, I would!
