    Anybody use dry shampoo?

    If so, do you recommend a particular brand? Preferably one that's not messy and would work well on a brunette. (I understand some of them are powders and are easier to use on blond hair.) TIA for any info!

    New DVDS: equipment?

    Hi Cathe & SNM, I asked this question on another thread, but I think it's gotten buried somewhere. Do you have a rough idea at this time of the equipment needed? Will any of the workouts be equipment-free? I pre-ordered regardless but am just wondering. Thanks!
