Dry shampoo has definitely become a buzz word around the beauty world.  You’ve probably heard a lot of hair care experts talking about dry shampoo, or even your close girl friends chatting about it.  Regardless, you’ve likely heard about dry shampoo if you’re not already an avid user of the beloved product.  It’s become known for so many great uses, it’s really no wonder everyone’s talking about it.  However, just like with anything else there’s a right way and a wrong way to use it.  We want to make sure you’re on the right path, so we’re chatting about how to use dry shampoo.

When getting started with using dry shampoo, experts suggest first starting by spraying your hairline (in front) before doing anything else.  Now, keep in mind that it’s essential that you’re not spraying the product too close to your hair as it will distribute a lot of product and leave you with a white finish on your hair.  So start by spraying the hairline pretty quickly and gently, not leaving too much product on this area.  Once you’ve done the hair line it’s time to move on to the rest of your hair.  To really get the best use out of dry shampoo the way it’s intended it’s suggested to separate your hair into sections so you have more control of your hair and what you’re spraying with the product.  You don’t need to get crazy with creating a ton of sections, just separating your hair down the center in the back (and however you wear your part typically on top of your head), then just breaking the two sides up in half into a front and back section.  Typically separating right around where your ear is, is perfect.

Once you’ve got your hair sectioned off it’s time to start spraying your roots.  You’re really just focusing on the roots when using a dry shampoo product.  Typically the best way to go about this process is to grab small sections within the sections you’ve created and begin spray your roots with the product (again not too close or leaving too much product behind).  Once you spray each section flipping it over to the opposite side to move on to another section is a great way to keep the already done pieces out of the way.

After you’ve done that to your entire head, some experts suggest running a brush through your hair to evenly distribute the product through your hair and really get a good blending done.  If you want to get a bit more volume you can even flip your hair upside down and use your fingers if you don’t want to use a brush.  This also helps to shake up some of the dry shampoo and any pieces that may have gotten a little extra spraying in.  If you choose to use a brush to distribute the product throughout your hair, opt for a bristle brush as they tend to work better in situations like these for your hair. Now, go make use of dry shampoo like it’s meant to be used!
