My Favorite Dry Shampoo Trick

dry shampoo hack

If you have oily scalp and dry hair like mine, dry shampoo is a life-saving product. Over the years of experimenting with different types of dry shampoos, I learned one hair hack that really makes all the difference. Today, I’m sharing this hairstyle tip with you.

The most important thing about this trick is to follow all the steps before you are taking a shower. By doing so, you allow your hair to absorb the product and even save some time on styling.

Step 1: Dry Shampoo

Spritz your favorite dry shampoo all over your hair and massage product into your roots. I usually use a spray, but powder options will also do.If you are blond, you can also apply baby powder all over your hair — the effect would be the same as with an expensive product.

Step 2: Hair Clip

Secure your hair in a loose bun by using a plastic hair clip. Put on a plastic shower cap. During this step, you will probably see a bit of residue, but don’t pay attention to it as it will disappear on its own.

Step 3: Brush Through

After you took a shower, remove the hair clip, and brush your hair through. Spritz your hair with a bit of hairspray. You will notice that your hair looks much more voluminous and healthy-looking.

    I have tried using dry shampoo but I hate the feel of it on my hair. I do think it’s more of a mental thing because I usually wash my hair everyday and the knowledge that it’s not washed just make me feel dirty. LOL!
