Hey everyone, Brittany here. Shannon asked me to begin doing some of my beauty product reviews by video, so here is my inaugural video for A Girl’s Gotta Spa! I kind of got carried away saying “it smells awesome” a lot in this video, but you’ll forgive me, right?

Sometimes a girl needs a quick fix to remove the shine from her hair before she has a chance to blow dry and style.

Jonathan Green Rootine Dry Shampoo Brush On Hair Powder ($19 at Sephora) cleanses and refreshes the hair and scalp without the use of water.
