Maintenance is the key! We look after our hair all the time, specially on the weekends. From experimenting with home remedies, to trying the most exorbitant cosmetics, we got it all! On the worst hair days, dry shampoo is here to save it!
What is Dry Shampoo?
Dry Shampoo is a dry substance that cleans your hair without the use of water. Dry shampoo works by absorbing oil from your scalp and hair, and making it look and feel freshly washed again. It’s simple and convenient when you are in a rush and want to refresh your hair. When you want to refresh your hair, just spray some dry shampoo, and you will look put together without even trying. It also extends the life of a fresh blowout, it increases the body and bounce.
What does Dry Shampoo do?
Its beneficial to those who have colored hair because we all know from each wash the color gets more dull. Save your hair color by not washing your hair as much. Dry shampoo is great for boosting volume, texture, and hold, which are perfect for braids, buns, or updos. It also eliminates odor and refreshes your hair. Plus, if you have an oily scalp, it removes the access oil and helps regulate oil production. Here are some advantages that I’d like to share from my own personal experiences.

How to Use Dry Shampoo
Shake dry shampoo and hold it at least the length of the can from the head (8-12 inches). Spray on the root starting at your part line, and divide into smaller sections to ensure the whole head gets product.
Flip your head upside down and gently massage your roots all over with your fingertips.
Use pads or brush to comb through to disperse throughout the whole head.
Important Things to Know Before Using Dry Shampoo
- When using dry shampoo, make sure your hair is not wet. Dry shampoo only works when your hair is dry.
- When applying dry shampoo, it has a white residue. Let the product sit on your hair to start soaking up the oil. Give it a chance to work! It will eventually fade but if you still see the white cast just comb through your hair.
- Try not touching your hair. We have the natural oils from our fingertips that can make your hair oily again and we all know you don’t want that!
