5 Ways To Make The Most Out Of Dry Shampoo

  • 1. Keep It Minimal
    Contrary to popular belief, dry shampoo is not meant to be spritzed all over your mane. This is what actually causes those pesky excess white patches to appear. Avoid that unsightly white residue by following portion control with your product. According to celebrity hairstylist John Francis, focus on the oiliest areas instead. “Start underneath your hair, which is one of the first places to get oil,” says Francis. “As you move up, piece out only the oily areas, with a little product at a time.” It is also recommended to spray at least six inches away from your scalp.

  • 2. Transfer Product Evenly
    Once you spritz on dry shampoo, it must be evenly distributed through the hair for maximum results. Let the product sit for a minute before massaging it into your scalp, which will help the product blend and give limp tresses volume and body. “Make sure your hands are clean before applying dry shampoo because you will have to massage your roots,” says Boston-based stylist Mario Russo. “You want to avoid transferring more dirt and oil to your hair.”

  • 3. Still Sprayed Too Much?
    So you overdid it with the spritzing. Now what? Simple: Brush your hair thoroughly until the white patches are gone. Since your fingers also contain natural oils, you can give yourself a scalp massage, with the extra perk of getting a quick relaxation session.

  • 4. It’s Not Just for Absorbing Oil
    Did you know dry shampoo is not just for oily hair? “I love using dry shampoo as a styling product when applying to fresh, clean, damp hair to build height,” says celebrity hairstylist Nelson Vercher, who has worked with Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian and Donatella Versace, among others. “Spray it on from roots to ends to maintain uniform texture throughout the hair. From there, whether you blow dry for gravity-defying volume or use a large curling iron to create fun easy waves, dry shampoo can help you create the look you want. It works on any hair type, but

  • girls with thin to medium hair will notice the bigger difference.

  • 5. Avoid This Common Mistake
    There is one section of your hair that doesn’t need any dry shampoo love. “Spraying the ends leaves hair full of static and feeling dry,” says Emmy Award-winning hairstylist Terrence Michael Renk. If the tips of your hair feel brittle, consider rubbing a pea-sized amount of coconut oil between your hands and applying it to your ends to moisturize and minimize frizz. Remember, like with dry shampoo, a small amount of coconut oil goes a long way.
