Yep, It's Possible to OD on Dry Shampoo (and Here's How to Fix It)
Oh, dry shampoo, we don’t know how we ever survived day-three hair without you. But you really can have too much of a good thing. If you’ve ever spritzed on the miracle mist one too many days in a row and ended up with dry, grungy-feeling locks, this one’s for you. Here are the three products you need to get your hair back in shiny (but non-greasy) shape.
Step 1: Alterna Caviar Clinical Exfoliating Scalp Facial
Here’s the sad truth: If you go too long without a wash (three days is the ultimate max), dry shampoo will mix with the oils on your scalp, creating a pasty substance that dulls your once-shiny locks and just feels gross. If you’ve ever tried to simply shampoo it out, you know it doesn’t exactly work. You need a product that’s actually formulated to break up the paste. Enter: Alterna Caviar Clinical Exfoliating Scalp Facial. The textured brush allows you to work the formula into your scalp for the ultimate cleanse.
Step 2: R+Co Oblivion Clarifying Shampoo
After you’ve broken up all the dry shampoo gunk, it’s time to wash it away. A clarifying shampoo will get the job done, and this one won’t strip your already-dry hair of the oils that remain. Give it a good lather, leave it on your hair for one to two minutes to let it do its thing, then rinse and repeat (if necessary). The final result? Squeaky-clean locks that won’t need a spritz of dry shampoo for days.
Step 3: Rahua Color Full Hair Mask
It’s no secret that color-treated hair is drier and more brittle than virgin locks. But even if your hair isn’t colored, this nourishing mask will bring your dry shampoo-laden locks back to their clean, soft glory. Formulated with all natural ingredients like rahua oil and Amazonian clay, it soaks into strands and makes hair unbelievably shiny—maybe even more than your pre-dry-shampoo days.
