How to Use Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is made to reduce oil, grease, and dirt from your hair without water. It’s a great product to use when you’re on the go. 5-Minute Crafts will show you how you should apply dry shampoo in an effective way.

Step 1

Start by shaking the bottle. This step is often missed, but it’s really important. By shaking it, you’re mixing up the good stuff inside, which makes the shampoo more effective.

Note: Before using the shampoo, make sure your hair is dry. You should never apply it to wet hair.

Step 2

Apply the dry shampoo 4-6 inches away from your hair. Do it toward the roots and focus on the areas where you are more oily. Never spray dry shampoo all over your head.

Note: Apply a little at a time to achieve the look that you want.

Step 3

With the help of your fingertips, massage the product into your roots and scalp so it absorbs the oil effectively.

Step 4

Style your hair as you would normally. Dry shampoo is great for braids, ponytails, or messy buns as it gives the hair some extra grip.

Alternative to the popular aerosol

If you don’t want to use an aerosol or you can’t keep the right distance between your hair and the spray bottle, you can always try powdered hair shampoo.

Start in 1″ to 2″ sections. With the help an applicator brush, put some powder on the bristles and then apply it to your scalp in a dabbing motion. Make sure to not use too much.
