Shampoo Dry

Let me start with this, dry shampoo does not serve as a "hall pass" to avoid showering all together. Okay, now that we've got that out of the way; dry shampoo is a gift from the hair gods above for those of us that sometimes wake up late, have more hair than we know what to do with and those of us who can't get their hair to do anything by lie there on top of their head.

Dry shampoo is the miracle worker for any situation. I love using it on clean hair, right at the root when I want some added volume without backcombing my hair into a rat's nest. I will lift up a section of hair at my crown and spray the dry shampoo underneath that layer right at the root. Then, with the section still lifted, I'll take my other hand and rub the product into the roots, the more aggressive (maybe that's not the right word), the more volume. Then, lay the top section back down over and smooth as necessary. Instant poof!

This is also a great trick for those summer days when you just want to throw your hair up into a ponytail, but don't want it to look like you just threw it up. Work some dry shampoo into sections of your hair at root, rub the product in good and really fluff it up. Then, loosely pull your hair back into a ponytail to avoid flattening your volume and voila! A ponytail with body.

You could always use dry shampoo for it's original intent as well, which is to combat oily hair at the root, which happens when you skip shampoo days. You'll want to lift large sections and spray with the dry shampoo, work it around at your root to really work the product in to sop up oil, then take a comb or brush and brush through the sections to avoid a powder residue.
