Dry Shampoo Basics


Dry shampoo's primary purpose is to clean your hair without water. The ingredients are meant to soak up oil and impurities to leave the scalp and hair fresh, clean, and free of build-up. The recommended application method depends on the formula, which will be either an aerosol or a loose powder.

Dry Shampoo: Uses, Tips, and Tricks


Quick, easy cleansing is what makes dry shampoo such a treasure in the beauty industry, but the different formulas can be useful to different people. An aerosol is best for guys and gals on the go. Just a spritz on the roots and a quick massage into the scalp is enough for these formulas to clean.

Powdered dry shampoos are often a bit messier and require more precision to apply without some spillage. These are great for soaking up oil but aren’t ideal in a rush.

Texture is very often a happy side effect of dry shampoos. They’re great to use throughout the hair to add movement, body, and texture. Want some quick, tousled waves? Take small section and spritz/dust with your dry shampoo, twisting and teasing the sections after application. Bam! Instantly refreshed look.

Styling an updo, or even a basic bun, is much easier with thicker, less slippery strands. If you have fine hair, spray some dry shampoo all the way through before styling for extra hold. Massaging a loose powder formula into the roots helps provide great body and a sturdy base for any style.
