There is a new trend sweeping the nation for women everywhere:Â dry shampoo. If you are like me, you are open and willing but just donâ€™t have a clue as to what it is. How does it work? Or, why should you be dry shampooing versus conventional, wet shampooing?
What is it? Dry shampoo is a powdered shampoo that is used to clean the hair when you want to extend the length of a blowout or are short on time.
Why use dry shampoo? Over-washing hair can dry it out and cause hair color to fade. To preserve your color and maintain gorgeous hair, it is best to traditionally wash hair only 2-3 times per week. Itâ€™s also good if you are in a hurry and donâ€™t have time to wash, dry and style.
How does dry shampoo work? The ingredients in dry shampoo soak up oil and dirt on the scalp. When your hair appears greasy, the roots need to be refreshed. Applying a dry shampoo soaks up oil and dirt, leaving your hair looking clean.
How do I use dry shampoo? There are two types of dry shampoos: ones that come in a loose powder form and ones that come in an aerosol form. I prefer the aerosol. Dry shampoo aerosols can be sprayed directly onto the scalp from a few inches away and then need to be brushed or massaged through the area.
