Dry shampoo: a busy gal’s salvation in times of need — a.k.a. when our hair is hovering the thin line between grossly unpresentable and must-go-up-into-a-messy-bun-immediately. No matter how often you use dry shampoo (be in one, two or a thousand times a day), it’s a staple in all of our lives that deserves love in the highest degree.
But if you’re new to the dry shampoo lifestyle, have no fear — it’s never too late to be seduced by this hair-reviving necessity. If you’re a first timer, Mizani artist Donte Mitchell recommends spraying dry shampoo on your hair in the areas that are the oiliest: “It doesn’t need to be sprayed directly into your hair, but should be more focused on your scalp and roots.”
“I spray dry shampoo on before styling to matte down the oil, then again after styling to add a little more texture and a good matte finish — as well as throughout the day, as needed, on the roots and scalp,” Mitchell continues.
There’s no doubt that a few sprays of oil-absorbing powder is a quick, easy and effective alternative for actually washing your hair in the shower, but the reality is that dry shampoo is not always a one-size-fits-all product.
