Today, I am sharing the best dry shampoo on the market…and a giveaway! Dry shampoo is a must have if you feel like you’re always on the go or in a time crunch. Dry shampoo isn’t a new product, but it has recently picked up popularity thanks to beauty experts and hair stylists who are now recommending washing your hair less to keep it feeling and looking healthy.
In fact, some experts recommend that you only wash your hair twice a week! But with so much time in between shampoos, what do you do when you hair starts looking oily? That’s where the best dry shampoo comes in!
What is dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo works by absorbing the oils in between washes, leaving you with fresher looking, feeling and smelling hair without the use of water. Typically, dry shampoo is sold as a spray-on powder. You can find dry shampoo just about anywhere with prices ranging from $3 at the drugstore to $50 if you want to splurge.
How to use dry shampoo
All you do is spray the product at the roots of your hair and ‘voila’ – cleaner and fresher hair in no time! The most important thing to remember when using a dry shampoo is that you want to be sure to either comb it out or rub it in – you don’t want a powdery white residue to be left behind, darlings.
Dry shampoo is a staple for traveling, if your hair gets oily between washes, or if you want to freshen up mid-day. Because it also adds volume back to your hair, it’s helpful for adding fullness throught the day for those of us with fine hair.
