We’re not saying it’s the end of your hair-washing days, but dry shampoo is a convenient option if you’re rushed in the morning, have somewhere to be after the gym, or have naturally oily hair. It can make flat, greasy, or even sweaty hair look presentable in a flash, but the benefits of dry shampoo don’t stop there. Â Even better, you can use it to make hair look greatâ€”even when it’s freshly washed.
Still not convinced? Here are 5 reasons why we can’t get enough of this genius beauty agent.
1. You can create bombshell waves
Achieve a glam look with minimal effort.Use a 1-inch clampless curling wand to create loose, tousled waves in 2-inch sections around your entire head. Spray dry shampoo on your roots, then flip your head over and run your fingers through your hair. Finish with hairspray to lock in volume.
2. It’s a quick defence for humidity
Tame your mane in rainy or humid weatherâ€”no matter your hair texture. Fine and straight hair can go flat in the face of humidity. To prevent limp locks, style as usual, then spray the roots with dry shampoo.
3. You can go longer between shampoos
When you haven’t washed your hair for a few days, the natural oils in your scalp come to the surface, causing hair to look matted and greasy. But if you don’t want to take the time to shampoo every day, or if you find daily washing doesn’t agree with your hair, use dry shampoo to remove dirt and oil.
4. It’s a great post-gym fix
We love having that after-gym glow, but the frizzy, sweat-matted hair look? Not so much. If you prefer working out during lunch or you tend to make post-gym plans, dry shampoo should become a gym-bag essential.
For a fresh look without having to get your hair wet, apply it to your hairline, part, and your hair’s under layers, then shake or brush it out.
This is especially helpful when you’re travelling and you want to keep your hair looking fresh the entire trip. Just pick up a travel-size bottle.
5. You can make your own
Whether you’re out of your favourite product or you want to try an extra budget-friendly option, you can make DIY dry shampoo with something you probably have in your pantry. Sprinkle some baking soda onto your roots and comb through with your fingers until your hair feels fresh.MYNEWSHUB
