Oh No! You Didn’t Know Everything Dry Shampoo Can Do? Right This Way, Please...
You probably already know that dry shampoo can be your BFF.
It saves you tons of time because you’re not washing your hair every single day. And it protects those luscious locks from damage due to overwashing, right?
Dry shampoo is great for soaking up excess grease and dirt without going to the trouble of doing a full wash. And since it adds fullness, bounce, and texture to your hair, it’s super as a hair styling product.
When it comes down to it, dry shampoo is the ultimate “hair hack” that’s got a bazillion uses. It’s kind of like a Swiss Army knife – except for your hair! And, like any good hack, not all of its true flexibility and array of uses are widely known.
So that’s why we’ve compiled our favorite tips ‘n tricks that dry shampoo can be used for. And let us be blunt here, cool? You might not be dry shampooing properly yet . . . because you may not realize its full capacity.
Let’s take a quick gander at dry shampoos superpowers:
Before you get that beauty rest
Teeth brushed? Check. Face washed? Check. Dry shampoo? Yep, now’s a good time. It may seem like going to bed with a head full of volume means you’ll wake up with the same volume. But we usually wake up with a flat side where we slept.
The simple solution for that: Spritz your hair with your favorite dry shampoo to wake up with frizz-less volume. This one’s fail-safe, so just add it to your nightly routine STAT.
Banish bobby pin slippage
Soft, fine hair doesn’t hold bobby pins for the long haul. They tend to slip and slide all over the place. And how can you get your groove on when you’re constantly adjusting your bobby pins?
Try this pro move next time: Spritz each pin with a tiny hit of dry shampoo to hold the pins in place. Works like a charm, and now you’re truly hands-free!
Bring your bangs back to life
Bring your bangs back to life with a quick hit of foam to the fringe and then restyle away.
No more sticking your head in the sink to wet and restyle!
Just do this anytime you need a quick bang boost. You’ll be stylin’ and profilin’!
Rookie spraying move to avoid
Please, please don’t spray continuously in one section. You’re bound to miss patches that way, plus too much of something is never good.
Do this instead: Use a smooth, sweeping motion to ensure full root coverage with an even, thin layer of product.
Patience is a virtue after you spritz on dry shampoo
Let it sit a bit to give the product a chance to work into your hair and really absorb the oil at your roots. It only takes 30 seconds!
Then massage it in before you brush or comb it through. Don’t immediately brush or shake it out because your ‘do might need a redo if you do.
Massage and work it
Once you’ve let the product sit to absorb the oils for a few seconds, use your hands to work the dry shampoo into your scalp. Otherwise, it can’t do its job and just sits there on top of your hair like a thin helmet. Yikes.
Hair color is key
First, use the right color dry shampoo for your hair. If you have dark-toned tresses, say goodbye to dull roots and an unflattering white cast to your hair—because that’s what traditional dry shampoo may cause.
On the flipside, those with lighter tones using a dark shade of dry shampoo will end up with dark, discolored roots. So pick the tone that most closely matches your own color.
