What is dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo is like a refreshing pick-me-up for your hair, a leave-in shampoo and styling product all in one. It is the lifesaver you reach for when your hair is looking a little greasy but washing your hair simply isn't featured in your busy schedule.
You might tie your hair up when it's in need of a wash, but that doesn't alleviate the look of oily, dull hair around your face. You can put on a hat, but a hat isn't suitable attire everywhere you go. The answer? Washing your hair with dry shampoo!
Dry shampoo will cleanse your hair and scalp, absorbing excess oil and odour while adding light texture and volume to your style. Using a leave-in shampoo eliminates bad hair days, helping you to make it to the day when washing your hair becomes a priority. It is the ideal styling product to use between washes for instantly cleansing, refreshing, and restyling your hair.

How to apply dry shampoo
Leave-in shampoo is designed to absorb excess oil, so it should be applied to the roots where a greasy build-up tends to be heaviest.
You should always shake dry shampoo spray well before spraying onto your roots from approximately six inches (15 centimetres) away. Give it a moment to dry, then massage it lightly into the scalp before brushing it evenly throughout your hair.
Put the finishing touches on your hairstyle if needed, then set it with a waft of your favourite hairspray. Voila! Ready to go!
How well does dry shampoo work?
Leave-in shampoo is a very effective method of absorbing excess oil and lifting the roots for visible fullness without oily residue. Fabulous for controlling oily hair between hair-washing days, the best dry shampoos will also lift and refresh the roots in dry hair as they become flat and greasy. Simply spray sparingly and massage lightly into the roots. If your hair is dry it is best not to brush dry shampoo powder right through to the ends of the hair.
Dry shampoo sprays tailored to light, medium or dark hair are ideal for lightly cleansing the hair between washes, and if they are applied correctly and brushed through, there should be no annoying flaky bits or residue, just like your good quality hair spray.
Dry shampoo powder vs mousse?
Dry shampoo absorbs excess natural oils in the hair to give you a fresh look without having to wash your hair in the shower. Dry shampoo powder is great at absorbing moisture in your hair, however, it tends to leave a residue, which can be particularly obvious in darker hair. Dry shampoo mousse or foam, on the other hand, doesn't leave a residue so might be the better option for those with darker hair. Everyone's hair is different, and what works for some might not work for others, so the best way to find out what works for you is to try different types.
