Looking for a beauty hack for your hair that will not only help it look and feel great but will also protect it from damage? Dry shampoo is the summer’s best beauty hack, letting you enjoy great-looking hair all summer long. It’s such an amazing tip that you’ll want to share it with all your friends! Here are all the facts you need to know about dry shampoo.
What is dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo is a special product that you apply while dry to freshen up without a shower. Professional dry shampoo products help eliminate that greasy feeling you sometimes get between regular shampoos and leave your hair feeling and smelling fresh and clean.
Why use dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo is one of the best beauty hacks because it lets you shampoo less frequently without ever feeling like your hair is not at its best. That’s important because frequent shampooing can strip vital oils from your hair, drying it out and causing frizz and flyaways that make it almost impossible to style. Even oily hair shouldn’t have frequent shampoos because stripping away too much natural oil causes oil glands to overproduce, making the problem even worse. With dry shampoo, you can cut back to only 2 or 3 regular shampoos per week, using dry shampoos on off-days for amazing hair.
How does dry shampoo work?
Dry shampoo uses special ingredients that soak up excess sweat and oils, giving your hair a fresh feeling in between the days where you shampoo in the shower. These starch-based ingredients are super absorbent, but they don’t over-strip, so your hair stays soft and protected.
How do I use dry shampoo?
It’s important to use dry shampoo correctly so you get the most from your product and the best results for your hair. Here’s how:
- Separate your hair into sections so the product will get to the roots. Use clips or pins to keep the sections separate.
- Hold the can about 12 inches away from your scalp and apply evenly to the roots.
- Unclip your sections and use your fingers to massage the dry shampoo evenly throughout your hair.
- Once it’s blended in, brush out your hair and style.
You can also use dry shampoo to enhance the results of your wet shampoo to keep your hair fresher longer. Apply it as directed above to wet, freshly shampooed hair, then blow-dry.
Which dry shampoo should I use?
Choosing the right product is crucial, so you’ll want to use a professional product like Redken® dry shampoo to get the best results. Drug store brands often contain harsh ingredients that can harm your hair, but professional brands used by stylists like Redken®, Pureology®, and L’Oreal Professionnel® use only gentle yet effective ingredients to care for your hair.
How often do I use dry shampoo, and are there any other hacks I should know?
You can use professional dry shampoo products anytime you need them, since their safe and gentle for your hair. Use them on those in-between days, or as noted above, to enhance your wet shampoo.
In addition, regular detox of your hair and scalp will help cleanse away pollutants that keep your hair from looking and feeling healthy. Our expert stylists at Cameo recommend Redken® Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo one to two times each month for a refreshing detox that will help improve your hair’s softness and ability to style easily.
