Dry Shampoo! Love it or hate it?

I personally love love love dry shampoo but there are certain tips that you should now about using these products!  Dry shampoos usually come in one of three forms — an actual powder, a liquid that comes from a pump dispenser, or an aerosol spray. Dry shampoo can be used in between washes if you’re trying to lengthen the life of your blow-out, trying to add volume to your hair, got up late and you dont feel like washing your hair or even in situations when water isn’t readily available (like when you’re camping, for instance which I would not know about because camping to me is staying a motel instead of a hotel).

Whatever you choose, remember that dry shampoo will only help to absorb excess oil and it won’t necessarily clean out the dirt and grime from a long day’s work, though it might mask it with a pretty scent. Good enough for your lunch break after a quick trip to the gym? Sure. Good enough before a big first date? Probably not so much.

Here are some tips when using Dry Shampoo:

1. Get to the root of the matter: When using a dry shampoo, it is important to spray it right on the roots to remove access oil. Suave Professional Dry Shampoo does have a great scent! 

2. Divide and conquer: In order to get best results, you’ll want to divide your hair into small sections and spray each section underneath at the roots.

3. Flip it for fabulousness: Once you spray each section thoroughly, don’t stop there! Flip your head upside down and gently massage the dry shampoo into the hair. This will really help revive the hair and add volume and texture, making it easier to style.

4. Back (comb) it up:  If you have limp hair, take a brush and gently back comb the hair after you spray the dry shampoo.  This will add volume at the crown of your hair and help evenly distribute the product through your stands.

5. Back away from the regular shampoo  – If you wash your hair too much, it can actually produce more oil, so try washing less frequently—say, every other day or every two days – and use a dry shampoo in between for maintenance. Dry shampoo will quickly become your second day hair best friend.
******For me the only tip you really need!!!  Apply it at night before you go to bed.  It will absorb and you will wake up with refresh hair!!!*****
