Spray On The Root

This maybe common sense but for dry shampoo to actually work, it needs to be sprayed in right at your root to remove excess oil. Be sure to choose one with a great scent that leave no residue.

Section Out Hair

For optimal results, section out hair and spray at the root. Spraying overall in large section of hair won’t work as well.

Work It Through

Once you spray each section, work in the product. You can either massage dry shampoo into your hair for extra volume and texture or use a brush to brush out and restyle your ‘do as you desire.

Put Down Your Regular Cleanser

If you over cleanse your hair, your scalp can actually start to produce more oil, so try to wash less frequently. Try every other day or even every few days, and use dry shampoo in between. It will easily before your most favorite and essential styler.
