Hope you had a great weekend! Today I am going to be talking to you about one of my beauty life savers. DRY SHAMPOO. If you don’t use dry shampoo, you gotta try it you will be amazed. And I’m going to tell you exactly how I use it to get the best results. So stick around.
What is Dry Shampoo:
Dry Shampoo is a powdery spray that typically smells really good. The powder in the spray absorbs any excess oil in your hair leaving it feeling, looking, and smelling much more clean. Added bonus…must dry shampoos give your hair extra volume. And who doesn’t want more volume?!?
Why You Shouldn’t Wash Your Hair Everyday:
Washing your hair everyday can strip the natural oils your scalp and hair produce causing it to get really dry, then your scalp wants to overcompensate and produce way too much oil thus creating a vicious cycle. If you wash your hair everyday because it’s really oily, challenge yourself for one week by only washing your hair every other day and see what happens. The oil will start to diminish on it’s own. If you’re hair is dry you can go more than every other day, and I am super jealous of you! :)
How To: Use Dry Shampoo
Once you’ve found a really good dry shampoo you will want to use it all the time. I promise you that!
1 // I separate the top layer of my hair into 4 pieces. Two are on the side of my hair right above my ears, 1 section is my bangs all the way until the crown, and the last section is the crown of my head. You can separate this anyway you want, do whatever is easier for you to get to the root.
2 // Start with any of the sections and hold the dry shampoo at least 6 inches away. Spray the root and move on to the next section.
3 // If you have the time wait 5-10 minutes after you’ve sprayed the dry shampoo. The longer you wait the more oil the powder will absorb.
4 // With a brush or your fingers blend the dry shampoo into your hair. Make sure you really brush the areas you sprayed out or you could be left with white powder in your hair depending on the brand you use. If you massage your scalp with your fingers just like you are washing your hair it will create more volume making your hair look freshly washed.
That is really all you do and you can go on and style the rest of your hair like you want to.
My Favorite Brands of Dry Shampoo:
1 // SexyHair H2NO Dry Shampoo: This is what I’m currently using because I ran out of my fave. It smells really good, and it doesn’t leave a white powdery cast to it.
2 // Batiste Dry Shampoo: This is my absolute favorite kind, it works so well, there are tons of different scents to pick from, and it’s really affordable. They also have options for blondes, and brunettes.
3 // Suave Beautiful Clean Dry Shampoo: This smells AMAZING, and it really works. Plus this is probably the cheapest dry shampoo I’ve seen.
*One of my favorite tricks with Dry Shampoo, is to spray my hair really good before going to bed, don’t brush it out and let the dry shampoo do it’s work while you sleep through the night. If you are like me your hair gets oily through the night… I must sweat or something haha! But seriously this works so well!
Anyways that is how you use Dry Shampoo, I promise when you start using it, it becomes it will become one of your holy grail beauty products that you always have to have on hand.
