Stranded Dry Shampoo | Reviving Last Night's Hair for Today's Brunch
For any avid brunchinista, you know that many weekends after a night out call for an immediate bellini and avocado toast the next morning with your girls recapping the night before. Whether you crashed at your friend’s place or just overslept and are running late to brunch, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is washing your hair. So, your solution is probably dry shampoo or baby powder.
The only problem? If you’re not blonde or light-haired, that powder you packed is totally going to show on your strands and turn your hair a not so cute shade of gray. My hair is auburn, and I have consistently had this problem since as far as I can remember! It always makes my hair a little stiff too. Not to mention, baby powder in many cases is made with talcum powder, an ingredient with potential to be dangerous.
Thankfully, I discovered Stranded, an all-natural dry shampoo in the form of a loose powder that is customized to different hair colors! Blondes, brunettes and redheads can all use this safe, floral-smelling loose powder without having to deal with the annoyance of traditional dry shampoo or baby powder not matching your hair color. White powder is for blondes, brown powder is for brunettes, and pink powder is for redheads. I use the brown powder for my hair and it completely blends into my roots. I can run my fingers through my hair and feel a smooth, light texture rather than combing through some stiff sections which usually result near my roots when I use traditional baby powder or dry shampoo.
Stranded comes in the cutest packaging, convenient for when you’re on-the-go and know you may need a little pick me up at some point during the day (aka, pre-brunch). It’s free of dyes, sulfates, parabens and gluten! Ingredients include: Tapioca Powder, Kaolin, Silicone Dioxide, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Fragrance, and Rice Hull Powder – completely safe ingredients that you can feel good about!
I’ll be the first to admit that my hair gets oily pretty quickly, even after just 12 hours post-showering. Stranded has become my brunching BFF. It’s incredibly light – all I do is give the bottle a good shake and put a bit directly on my roots. After a few seconds of blending it in, my hair seriously looks and smells as fresh as it would had I washed my hair that morning. It has a clean boost and gives my hair a bit more body towards the top. Who wants flat hair in those fun brunch photos you’re planning on taking, anyway?
Co-Founder Lauren Scruggs Kennedy says, "As a blonde, I used to be a total baby powder addict to soak up the oil in my hair and go another day without a shampoo. Stranded, though, has taken my love for a dry shampoo hair powder to another level - it is filled with the purest ingredients that are good for your scalp and hair, it is easy to throw in your purse, and it smells like vacation, not a grandma!"
Stranded is the ultimate go-to for a safe hair pick-me-up that will guarantee to not only keep your hair from looking dirty, but will match your locks regardless of your hair color. Stranded understands diversity, and not all dry shampoo fits all! Now thanks to Stranded, my "last night locks" will look fresh and fabulous and be completely brunch ready!
