How To Use Dry Shampoo!

Dry shampoo is the best thing since sliced bread. I remember the days when the only option was baby powder, and I'd be covering myself and my floor in a white dust whilst rushing to get ready! Gone are the messy mornings, where your hair would turn three shades lighter and look awful. Thank you to the inventors of dry shampoo.

As wonderful as dry shampoo is, it can't just be sprayed onto your hair. Doing so gives a similar result to baby powder! The process is simple and fast, and knowing what you're doing will reap rewards!

Note: while general shampoo removes the hair's natural oils and the dirt, dry shampoo absorbs it.

Step 1: Brush through your hair, ensuring there are no tangles.

Step 2: Spray the dry shampoo into your hair, focusing on the roots. Hold it about 8in/30cm from your head.

Step 3: Work it in using your finger tips, doing your best to absorb the oils/dirt. This is the most important part, so make sure you rub it in until you're happy with the texture.

Step 4: Brush out the dry shampoo! It's not meant to stay in your hair.

Step 3: Style!

The best part of dry shampoo is that as well as giving you an extra day or two without washing, it also gives a wonderful body to your hair. For this reason, you can even spray some on after straightening your hair to puff it up a bit!
Lastly, dry shampoo does lighten your hair. For you blonde girls, this can be great when you want to brighten your style up a bit. It is important for you dark brunette and black haired girls that you use a dry shampoo specifically for dark hair. Batiste have a great range, with various colours and fragrances. Definitely check them out if it's your first time!

So, what's your opinion on dry shampoo? Do you use it? If so, what brand do you use?
