Why You Should Use Dry Shampoo (Even If Your Hair Isn't Greasy)

We’ve said it time and time again: Just because you shower every day, doesn’t mean you should shampoo your hair every day. Shampooing every day can strip the hair of essential oils that actually waterproof and moisturize the skin and hair. Hair can still stay fresh and like-new in between washes with the help of a magnificent little product we like to call dry shampoo. Take a look at these three ways dry shampoo works in your favor, even if your hair isn’t a greasy mess!

1. It Prolongs Your ‘Do

Whether in powder or aerosol form, these miracle workers lengthen the lives of your blowouts and thermally straightened locks, without stripping your scalp of its much-needed oils. Pro tip: Try spraying your mane before you go to bed so you can wake up with fresh and lovely hair!

2. It Adds Texture and Body

All you ladies rockin’ the bangs or short ’dos should listen up! Dry shampoo is great for adding some bounce and body to cropped hair. It also keeps bangs dry and prevents unwanted separation.

3. It Builds Height

Dry shampoo can be an essential styling tool when used appropriately. Spray some of this hair-saving solution onto damp roots prior to blowdrying or just spray it onto your locks before taking a curling iron to them. The result is gravity-defying volume and fun, full waves!
