Even though it’s called dry shampoo, it is not actually a shampoo. It does not clean your hair the same way shampooing your hair does.
Not all dry shampoos are the same. Different products have different consistencies. Some can help texturize your hair while others provide volume. Some brands will have dry shampoo for dark and light hair. The dark one usually comes with a tint. Dark or light it may leave what looks like a powder residue. Don’t give up! All you have to do is rub it in a little.
With dry shampoo, what works for some may not work for others. Always try new ones to experiment and see which one you like best. Let us know in the comments which dry shampoo you love!
The What, When, and How of Dry Shampoo:
What does it do?
Absorbs moisture caused by natural oils.
Extends your blowdry or style.
Helps extend color.
Makes hair appear cleaner.
When should I use it?
Best applied at night so it starts to absorb oils before they build up.
As soon as you notice that your hair is starting to look oily.
After you’ve completed a workout and are unable to wash your hair right away.
Anytime you’re trying to avoid washing your hair.
How should I apply it?
Apply dry shampoo to the crown of your head spraying directly onto the roots of your hair. Massage the product into your roots using your fingers. The dry shampoo should absorb right away. As mentioned earlier, if you notice a powder residue just rub it in a little more.
There are dry shampoos that come in the form of moose. When you apply the product it looks like you’re literally applying moose but it will start to dry up in a couple of minutes.
