Lately, I seem to be getting asked a lot of questions about dry shampoo! I thought a little post about this genius product was in order. There are a few application tips that will help you get the most out of your dry shampoo, and I want to share my current favorites!
Dry Shampoo Tips You Should Know
You probably aren’t using enough. I shake up the can really well, part my hair and spray, spray, spray at the roots of my hair. I hold the can about 6-8 inches away, and I flip sections of hair around so that all of the top of my head is covered.
You need to work the dry shampoo into your hair a little. Many women forget this step, just spraying in a little and thinking that’s it, all done. But, you’re not! Spray it in, and let it sit for a few minutes. Then come back and either brush your hair or just move your fingers around in your hair. This will take care of any powdery look and distribute the product.
Many brunettes think they can’t use dry shampoo because it can look a bit powdery, but that just isn’t true! Look for a tinted dry shampoo (I have a few favorites below), or use the next tip.
You can apply your dry shampoo before bed instead of in the morning! When I do this, I use a little extra and just spray it and don’t brush it around. In the morning you won’t be powdery, I promise! Something about the night before helps a lot!
Finally, dry shampoo isn’t only for soaking up excess oil. It also adds texture to your hair, which is great for those of us with silky hair that is difficult to hold styles! I love to spray a little in my hair right before I put it up or curl it. The added texture makes styling much easier and it holds much longer.
