In news no one wants to hear, oil is actually good for your hair.
Aesthetically, not great. Greasy roots can go away. But our hair follicles release sebum (oil) because it's the scalp's way of moisturising itself, and strengthening and protecting the hair.
So, what do you do about oily roots? You use dry shampoo, the stuff that usually comes in a can and soaks up grease like nothing else.
That said, dry shampoo isn't perfect. Sometimes, it looks chalky or white or like a dusting of dandruff on your shoulders. Other times, it can leave your hair looking and feeling greasier than before.
That's because many of us aren't using dry shampoo correctly. If you think that might be you, keep scrolling for how to get the best out of your dry shampoo.
Oh, and my expert dry shampoo recommendations.
