Sometimes, ain’t nobody got time for that! We’re talking washin’, dryin’ + stylin’ yo hair when…you’ve over-slept, you’re dashing out the door fashionably late, or water isn’t readily available (huh-hum, glamping).
This beauty-wonder has been around for centuries, but recently reappeared on the scene since so many beauty experts began
recommending that we wash our hair less-frequently. Washing our hair daily also washes away beneficial, natural oils that keep our locks + our scalp in tip-top shape. Dry shampoo is perfect for using between washes to pump up the volume + keep it fresh. It works by absorbing excess oil from your scalp + hair, + making it almost appear + feel freshly washed again. Despite the name, it’s not however, meant to take the place of regularly washing your hair with water, but more as a means of lengthening the days between washes, or to use in a pinch. So, if you haven’t tried it yet – what on earth are you waiting for, girl?!
How To Use It:
There are a few ways to apply this baby, so see what works best for you! Focusing only on the roots, always use the less is more approach + say buh-bye to gross, greasy hair!
• Shake it directly onto you hair, right out of the container.
• Shake some into your hands + sprinkle it on your roots.
• Shake it into your hand + apply it with a clean makeup brush, for the best control, + coverage.
Your best bet is to apply it the night before to let it settle in for as long as possible. If you don’t have time for that, it will still work – just give it as much time as you can the day of. Then, brush it through the length of your hair to evenly distribute. Flip your head upside down, + use a blow dryer to rid your hair of the excess powder.
People with darker hair may find that it can leave a whitish or grayish cast if it’s not already tinted. One little tip is to add some cocoa powder to the mixture.
