No matter what your hair type, we all have suffered from an oily scalp at one time or another. Sometimes there’s only so much dry shampoo you can spray on. That’s where Dessange Paris comes in. Their Purifying Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask and Balancing Shampoo are the ultimate oil fighting duo. The Pre-Shampoo Mask specifically targets the scalp unlike most hairs masks which are made for the ends.

My trouble spots have always been…
