Dry shampoo is one of the hottest hair essentials on the market all over the world right now. It has changed the hair washing patterns for many women and men. In order to use dry shampoo properly, it is important to understand the concept of dry shampoo and its many purposes and uses.

What is dry shampoo?

Dry shampoo is essentially shampoo in a powder form and is used without any use of water. It is usually in an aerosol can and is applied to the roots of the hair like a hairspray. The powder is meant to absorb any dirt and oil that is in the hair, giving it a clean and refreshed feeling without actually shampooing the hair. It is a great product to have when you do not have time to wash your hair, but it needs a little something to get through the day.

Why should I be using dry shampoo in between washes? 

  • Shampooing your hair daily can be harmful to your hair by stripping the hair of essential oils.
  • The powder in dry shampoo can add volume and texture to the hair, which can help bring lifeless locks back to life for day #2.
  • If your hair is colored, shampooing often can accelerate the fading of the color. Using a dry shampoo will help keep your colored locks last longer.
  • Dry shampoo helps remove any odor in the hair so that it smells fresh and clean.

What are the differences between all of the dry shampoos available?

There are many different brands and types of dry shampoos available on the market for consumers. It is important that you find a dry shampoo that is silicone and sulfate free to keep your locks from drying out or from creating build-up on the hair. We highly recommend Living Proof’s PHD Dry Shampoo and Oribe’s Gold Lust Dry Shampoo.

PHD Dry shampoo is made using Living Proof’s healthy hair molecule (OFPMA) and their triple-action cleaning technology from MIT. It is one of the most remarkable dry shampoos available and recommended for all hair types. Gold Lust Dry Shampoo is great for removing oil from the hair while adding a subtle softness to the strands while providing their signature Côte d’Azur scent to last throughout the day.

*Please note, dry shampoo is not meant to replace liquid shampoo. It is still important to maintain a healthy scalp with a regulated washing schedule.
