Dry Shampoo: A Mini Guide

Rushed mornings, after the gym, on a plane…  there are so many moments when dry shampoo can help save the day! How does it work exactly? And how should you use it? Read on for all the answers!

ONE PRODUCT, MANY ADVANTAGES!

Created from a corn starch, oatmeal or rice base, dry shampoo works like a sponge by absorbing the excess oil that builds up in your hair, leaving your roots lighter and brighter. It’s a great way to perk up your hair between washings or to awaken tired hair during the day.  

Another advantage of dry shampoo is that it adds texture to your hair so it’s less slippery, which means your braids or pony tail will have better body, your tuck will last longer and your clips and barrettes will hold more easily. Talk about multi-tasking!

Even out your complexion

Caution! Dry shampoo is absorbent but it doesn’t get rid of impurities. On the contrary, if too much powder builds up, it can suffocate the roots and irritate your scalp. It’s important to wash your hair and scalp with regular shampoo whenever you can.

HOW TO TURN HEADS…

All you have to do is master the spritz!

  • Start by shaking the container to ensure a homogenous consistency– little lumps can clog the spray head and lead to uneven distribution.

  • To refresh your hair fully, spray towards the roots and then work outwards along the lengths of your hair. Make sure you respect the distances suggested by the manufacturer: too close and you’ll get too much product, which is hard to disperse properly. Once you’ve covered your entire head, let the product work its magic for a few minutes then brush gently to spread the product and eliminate any residue.
  • To texturize, spray the shampoo onto the lengths of your hair, like a lacquer, and shake your hair lightly before styling. That’s it!

Dry shampoos are gaining in popularity, with more choices available than ever before. Targeted versions of the product are also hitting the shelves: nettle for oily hair, oatmeal for sensitive scalps, volumizers for finer hair, brown or beige tints for darker hair. There’s something for everyone!
