Cleaning Hair Sans Water

I first heard about dry shampoos on TV (I can't remember if it was on Fox, the Today Show, or E!). Anyway, when my sister stayed with us, she had this with her:

She was able to use it once. I don't think it's the same as a dry shampoo, but you can also clean your hair without using water. This one, however, gave her hair a wet look which makes it seem as though she had showered. I think our mom got it at Watson's. I don't know how much it costs, but the thing is, my sister used up this bottle in just one go (she has shoulder-length hair). I guess, it's really just for those special instances when you want to clean your hair and you don't have access to a shower.

Anyway, I'm still intrigued by the idea of dry shampoo. I googled it and found this recipe for making dry shampoo. I like my showers, but dry shampoo is supposedly good for those with dry hair since it would lessen the hair's exposure to drying elements like water and the usual shampoo chemicals. In any case, I can think of several instances from the past when a dry or no-rinse shampoo would have come in handy. I'll make sure to carry one the next time I backpack or have to take a 20-hour-long flight.

Hi Ivy- We found an interesting product when my husband was in the hospital. I was pretty impressed, although it would be expensive to use all the time.
