How to use dry shampoo
When time doesn't allow for a full hair wash routine, or when your hair gets greasy right after washing it, dry shampoo can be your best friend. Using dry shampoo is easy and effective, and we have some tips to help you get the best results:
- With most formulas, it's important to start by shaking the bottle well to activate the product.
- Apply evenly to the roots of your hair, focusing on where it tends to be oiliest.
- If you are using a spray dry shampoo, make sure to hold the bottle about 12 inches from your scalp. This will ensure an even application and is the easiest way to avoid white and sticky product residue.
- Work the product through the scalp with your fingers or a brush.
- Finally, brush through your hair to remove any product residue and enjoy refreshed hair!
Did you know that if you struggle with hair that feels greasy right after washing, you can even use dry shampoo on freshly washed, dry hair? Apply the product where you tend to get oil build-up, such as your bangs or along the hairline, and massage as usual. If you are using dry shampoo on freshly washed hair, you can go for a lighter product like Maria Nila’s Invisidry Shampoo.
What is dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo has become a haircare hero for anyone who wants to keep their hair looking great on the go. Dry shampoo can come in the form of a powder, mousse, or spray and is designed to effectively absorb excess oil and grease from the scalp and give your hair a freshly washed look. Having dry shampoo on hand is a secret for getting perfect hair when you need it most, whether you're having a hectic morning or simply want to refresh your hair between washes. Dry shampoos are also available in travel size so you don’t have to compromise with your look when you’re on the go.
How does dry shampoo work?
Dry shampoo works by combining absorbent ingredients, such as rice or potato starch, to absorb excess oil from the scalp. These ingredients work by drawing out the oil, leaving hair less greasy and more refreshed. Dry shampoo can also give your hair a fresh scent for that freshly washed feeling.
Dry shampoo can be used to add texture and volume to your hair. If you choose a product that has a little hold, like Maria Nila’s Dry Shampoo, you can apply the product to the lengths and roots to make up-dos last longer.
How to combat greasy hair without dry shampoo?
If you find yourself without dry shampoo and struggling with greasy hair, you can try using products you already have in your bathroom or kitchen, such as baby powder or potato starch. Apply the product to the roots and brush through the hair to distribute the powder evenly. This can help absorb excess oil and give your hair a cleaner feel. If you have a sensitive scalp, it’s best to be extra cautious when using products that are not specifically made to be used in your hair.
Dry shampoo for brown hair
If you’re a brunette, you’ve probably tried dry shampoos that leave visible white product residue. To avoid this, use a dry shampoo that is made to leave no visible traces, so you can enjoy fresh-looking hair without worrying about white or gray residue. As the name suggests, Maria Nila’s Invisidry Dry Shampoo is formulated to leave no trace in your hair.
