The Best Way to Use Dry Shampoo
Maximize the strand-saving benefits of lazy shampooing
Dry shampoo is a great way to save time on days when you’re in a hurry--and it gives your hair a break from all those color-stripping products and damaging heat.
But if you rethink the way you spray it on, you’ll get better results. Try these three tricks for terrific tresses:
1. Apply it before bed. Even if your hair isn’t greasy yet, this preemptive move ensures the dry shampoo absorbs oil as soon as it’s produced, so you wake up to fresh locks.
2. When you do apply it, spritz it on, then wait a full two minutes before brushing or styling. Start combing too soon and you’ll remove the product without giving it enough time to do its oil-absorbing duty.
3. Use dry shampoo on clean hair, too. It’s a foolproof way to create volume and texture--ideal for updos or braids.
