Romeo, Romeo where art thou Dry Shampoo?????. Finding a good one is hard, and finding one that actually does what it’s supposed to is even harder!
Spending time on shampooing/blowdrying/styling my hair in the morning is fine and all if that was the only thing I had to do, but aint no body got time for that everyday! I prefer to use my time to make an extra blog post, or chat with kiddos, or leave early to get a coffee and enjoy the scenery on the way to the salon. This tip to switching up your dry shampoo routine of how you have been applying it will leave you mesmerized and wondering how you didn’t think of this to begin with!
But what if I told you that how you’ve been applying your beloved dry shampoo isn’t actually the best, most effective way? Just switching up your routine even a tiny bit, you could wake up with legitimately killer-looking hair? Because that’s exactly what I’m telling you, and you’re going to want to keep reading to find out how.
Here’s how dry shampoo is supposed to work: You blast it on your roots, and a bunch of oil-absorbing powders/absorbent’s wrap themselves around your strands to suck up grease and neutralize odors. So when you brush your hair out a few minutes later, the gunky-powder theoretically gets brushed out a bit, too. Easy, right?
The problem is that most of us usually just spray on our dry shampoo, then haphazardly rub at our roots as we’re running out the door—giving the powder virtually no time to work its magic. The key is to let it the product work, while you are sleeping! Wake up and the give a quick rub at the roots or a take a big barrel curling iron for some extra body and fouled waves. Volume thru-out the day and you’r hair smells refreshed!

“If your roots are extra oily, you can spray them with dry shampoo at night before you climb into bed, so the powders can soak up excess oil while you sleep. Using this method will totally transform your “dry shampoo” routine and you’r hair will thank you!
Seriously, when my hair is at its greasiest (which is basically every other night, thanks to having fine hair), I blast the hell out of my roots with dry shampoo, add a loose braid for a little texture in the morning or just leave it straight, then go to bed. In the morning, flip my head over, massage my roots to distribute the powder (if you’ve got straight hair, you can also brush it out), and boom: Voluminous, matte, clean-looking hair that smells super clean!
If you still notice some oil, spritz on some extra dry shampoo, I always keep the R+Co SPIRITUALIZED DRY SHAMPOO MIST on hand just to re-fresh if I need to. Remember to wait a few minutes for the powder to absorb, and then brush out or massage your roots.
