How To Apply Dry Shampoo Correctly

Ways To Save Time With Dry Shampoo
1. Keep It Fresh
When your hair are greasy and you are short on time in the morning, after the gym or just don't want to wash your hair everyday.
2. Add dimension
Freshly washed hair and some hair (like mine - Asian hair) can be too smooth for braids and updos. A little dry shampoo gives hair the texture it needs to hold its shape.
3. Hold hair up for detail work
Because dry shampoo adds body and holds, it can be great for detail work. Spray or sprinkle a little along your hairline. Use your fingers to gently work hair into waves or curls as your desire. Or add a little to the back sides of the sections you are for extra hold for back-combing or teasing.
4. Cover dark roots if you're a blonde
Dry shampoos now come in a range of colors, so if you're between touch-ups, use a little along your hairline to disguise the first signs of your natural color.
5. Keeps your bangs from sticking to your forehead
Spraying it under your bangs only will keep your fringe from sticking to the oil on your forehead. You don't need to spray dry shampoo all over your bangs — the underneath is the most important part. It keeps your fringe together nicely as well.
6. Reverse your styler
Redo your hairstyle without washing and drying, simply sprinkle in some dry shampoo, then go over hair with a blow-dryer and large brush. It'll help return hair to a more natural state.
7. Tame your brows
Sprinkle a bit of dry shampoo on your index finger to coax your brows into line while adding thickness. If you have sensitive skin, be sure to test a tiny amount on an inconspicuous spot like your ear.
