Are you a fan of dry shampoo yet? No? Then you don't know what you are missing. Because this wonder drug is an absolute must-have in your hair care collection.
What is dry shampoo and how does it work?
Let's start at the beginning. Dry shampoo is a powdered hair spray designed to absorb excess grease and oil in your hair and scalp. The result is fresher, cleaner-looking hair without actually having to wash it.
The magic of dry shampoo is in the ingredients. It usually contains starch or rice powder that absorbs excess oil, making your hair look instantly refreshed. Moreover, many dry shampoos also contain fragrant elements, so your hair not only looks clean but also smells fresh. No wonder it is so popular!
When do you use dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo is super versatile and can come in handy at different times:
On busy mornings
When you're in a hurry and don't have time to wash and blow-dry your hair, dry shampoo is your best friend. It revitalises your hair in an instant.
When you are on the road and have no (or less frequent) access to a shower, dry shampoo is a lifesaver. It keeps your hair looking fresh and clean, even after a long flight.
If you want to avoid washing your hair daily, dry shampoo can help extend the time between washes without making your hair greasy.
If you want more volume!
Dry shampoo can boost your hair by adding volume and texture. It can make fine hair look fuller and give thinner hair more body. It can also make your hair a little rougher, making it easier to create hairstyles like braids, buns or updos and make them last longer.
If you don't like shine
If you're not a fan of shiny hair, dry shampoo can help absorb excess oils and give your hair a somewhat matte finish.
How do you use dry shampoo?
Using dry shampoo is very simple. Follow these steps for best results:
- Shake the bottle well before use.
- Hold the bottle about 10-20 centimetres away from your head and spray the dry shampoo on the roots of your hair.
- Let the dry shampoo take effect for a minute.
- Gently massage the powder into your scalp with your fingertips.
- Brush through your hair to remove any excess powder.
Voilà! Your hair looks fresh and clean again.
Dry shampoo is a true panacea that can save you on those tricky bad hair days.
