As a lazy environmentalist, the idea of a dry shampoo appeals in concept and practice. I get to skip a wash and save water and energy for the planet. However, finding a dry shampoo that isn't spray-on lighter fuel is another matter. What about hair powders? Great idea...if you can find one without parabens (toxic for fish) or talc (toxic for me).

Eventually I did: Principessa Bianco Breeze Hair & Body Powder. But then I came across too many reviewers who complained that the white powder refuses to blend in and is as visible on the head as a snowstorm. Finally, I turned up Lulu Organics Hair Powder ($40).

Lulu soaks up shine, doesn't leave a nasty chemical residue and it smells (in my case the jasmine/tuberose combo) delightful. Organic ingredients include Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO) horsetail powder. The OTCO is a nonprofit organization that promotes "biologically sound and socially equitable" agriculture. Products don't have to be grown in Oregon to qualify for certification.

Ingredients in Lulu Organics Hair Powder

White clay, baking soda, USDA Organic corn starch and rice powder, and Oregon Tilth Certified Organic horsetail powder and essential oils (lavender/clary Sage, patchouli/amber, jasmine/tuberrose).

    <p>This one (Lulu) doesn't leave any residue (but I am blond-ish). Otherwise Bumble & Bumble has a range that comes in different tints for blond/brown, red and black hair.</p>

    <p>Martha, could you elaborate a bit more on one thing please. I have stayed away from dry shampoos because I keep hearing that white residue like powder are left in your hair that need to be dusted/combed out. How does this fare in that aspect in your experience? Thanks again.</p>
