An aerosol, powder or foam product that contains moisture-absorbing agents like starch, cornflower and ingredients like alcohol. They work to absorb oil and grease in your hair and scalp to make it look clean and/or used in hairstyling to create volume and body.
Foam, powder and spray dry shampoo should all be applied on dry hair and close to the roots, and most importantly, should only be applied on greasy areas of your scalp.
You don’t have to limit yourself to only using dry shampoo in the morning when you don’t feel like washing your hair. Applying it before going to bed actually gives the product extra time to absorb excess oils and a more even result. It can also be used to boost volume and add some extra bounce to your hair. Using dry shampoo before you work out helps prevent sweat and oil from doing a number on your scalp. Meaning you won’t have to wash your hair after every workout, which your hair will thank you for!
Dry shampoo shouldn’t be a part of your everyday hair routine. It should only be used one to two times a week. Despite its name dry shampoo doesn’t actually clean your hair, using it too often will lead to build up and clog your follicles which could result in hair loss and scalp irritation.
Depending on your desired result and hair type, different dry shampoos do different things. Do you want volume for days? Or perhaps you want your hair to feel as fresh as when you’ve just stepped out of the shower? Maybe you’re looking for one that can do it all? We tested a range of dry shampoos to help you find the one that works the best for you. Read about our favourite dry shampoos here.
Dry shampoo can provide the refreshing scent of newly washed hair without the need for water. But if you’re sensitive or allergic to fragrances, it’s a good idea to choose a fragrance-free option.
If you're keen on a scented dry shampoo, but don't want to take a trip to the store to test it out, consider citrus fragrances as they're typically more discreet.
Dry shampoos usually come in spray form, but did you know there are other types available too?
Dry shampoo in spray form is easy to apply and spread evenly through your hair. There's an abundance of options to suit your hair colour and scent preference.
If you go for a powder dry shampoo, you'll want to sprinkle it onto your roots, let it sit for a bit, and then brush it out. This works for most hair colours. The powder might be trickier to spread around evenly. And if you use too much, you might end up with a dusty look.
There's the mousse version of dry shampoo, which resembles traditional styling mousse. One key difference is that the foam can make your hair appear slightly damp initially, whereas spray and powder dry shampoos don't. Mousse takes a bit longer to apply than spray.
Some dry shampoos are designed specifically for blonde or dark hair. But there are plenty of options that work well for all hair colours and become transparent when dry.
It’s easy to buy the wrong thing, so read the label carefully before your purchase. And remember, always brush the dry shampoo into your hair to avoid any unsightly dust on your roots - this is especially important if you have dark hair.
