5 Mistakes You Are Making With Your Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is one of the must-have in your bag! 

Dry shampoo is one of the must-have in your bag cause it helps to revive limp hair and banish greasy scalps to boosting voluminous roots. And the best thing, no water needed and it only takes a few minutes of your time. But not many people are using it the right way, therefore they claim that the product doesn’t work.

This miracle product is only miraculous if you use it the right way.

1. Spritzing Too Close To Your Scalp

Hold the dry shampoo about 10 inches away from your roots to evenly distribute the product to your hair. This way you won’t end up with a chalky white look.

2. Applying It To The Wrong Part of Your Hair

Chances are that the bottom of your hair isn’t greasy, so spraying dry shampoo all over can make your hair dry and stiff. Instead of using the product all over your head, simply stick to the top couple inches and you are all good. The scalp is usually the greasy part that you should tackle.

3. Using Too Much Product

Too much product can make your hair look dull and discoloured instead of fresher. Therefore, use a little first, then wait a few minutes and add more if you feel like your hair is still too greasy. It is always easier to add more later than removing the excess.

4. Not Massaging The Product In

The product will not be able to do its job if it just sits on top of your hair. Use your fingertips to massage it into your scalp and roots and you should be able to see the difference.

5. Using It Almost Everyday

Given that how convenient and effective the product is, most of us rely on dry shampoo too much. Using it too often can actually be detrimental as the built-up residue can eventually clog your follicles. So please do it once between hair washes to let your scalp breathe.

Last but not least, always remember that dry shampoo will only help to absorb excess oil and it won’t necessarily clean out the dirt and grime from your hair. It is always good to use the conventional shampoo for thorough cleansing.
