so, what exactly is dry shampoo?

dry shampoo is a clever product that cleanses your hair without needing water. available in aerosol spray or powder form, it zaps excess oil from your scalp, leaving your hair looking fresh. unlike standard shampoo that needs rinsing, dry shampoo is sprayed or sprinkled onto dry hair and then brushed out.

different from your usual lather-rinse-repeat version, dry shampoo uses alcohol or starch-based ingredients to soak up oil and grease while adding touchable texture. perfect for quick touch-ups, it keeps your hair looking (and smelling!) on-point between washes. to fit dry shampoo into your routine, simply use it whenever your hair needs a pick-me-up.

how to use dry shampoo

using dry shampoo like a pro couldn't be easier. follow these simple steps for the best results.

step 1: prep

if it’s an aerosol dry shampoo, make sure you give it a good shake. if it’s a powder, no need to shake.

step 2: section your hair

part your hair into small sections with a comb. this ensures you hit all the right spots.

step 3: apply to roots

hold the bottle a few inches away from your scalp and spritz the dry shampoo directly onto your roots. hot tip: don’t get too close!

step 4: target oily areas

apply only to the oily bits. for thicker hair, you might need a bit more product.

step 4: wait

let the dry shampoo sit for a couple of minutes to do its thing. you can dig out a pair of matching socks or pour a second cup of coffee while you wait.

step 5: massage and brush

gently massage it into your scalp, brush out any excess product and you’re good to go.
