Ladies, let’s talk about dry shampoo — the world’s sneakiest beauty product.
When I first heard the term dry shampoo, I was uber skeptical and well, just plain confused (how can shampoo be dry?!). But with a little practice, I’m officially hooked and now a walking advertisement for dry shampoo. Let’s break down my love for this time-saving product:
Dry shampoo comes in spray can and is applied to your hair without water (yay, shorter showers!), soaking up grease and oil. It’s a genius way of extending the life of a blow-out when all you need is a touch up to your roots. Think of it as baby powder’s more mature sister. My college roommates and I swore by using baby powder in our hair (we were lazy), but it never quite rubbed in all the way, leaving a white residue. You won’t have that problem with dry shampoo.
How to apply: Just spray the greasy areas — for me, that’s right around my hairline — and massage it into your scalp with your fingers until the powder-like substance blends in. The oil is soaked up and you’re left with a fresh-smelling head of hair.
My #1 tip when applying: don’t be shy — spray with reckless abandon. Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme, but dry shampoo works best when you spray generously. Just go for it, otherwise you won’t notice a difference.
In case you’re still skeptical, here are before and after photos. Note: don’t judge my greasy before shot. It’s been hot and humid in DC this week!
