Dry shampoo rose to fame when it was recommended for use on hair that was not washed. Indeed, daily shampoo is not recommended on hair but women had issues with the greasy feeling on unwashed hair. This is when dry shampoo came to the rescue and enabled women to enjoy beautifully, volumised hair without the need to wash it. But did you know that there are far more uses for dry shampoo? These styling tricks enable it to become one of the must-have hair styling products in the market.
It gives hold to hair when teasing or backcombing.
When you are creating an updo and you need to do backcombing or hair teasing, you can use dry shampoo to lock in the hair, so to speak. Make sure you apply dry shampoo onto the specific section you are working on. Then, you can begin to tease that section. Doing so provides two-way benefit for your hair: 1) it keeps other parts of the hair out of the way while you are backcombing, and 2) it provides better hold to the overall style.
It allows your style to set longer without the stiffness.
Before dry shampoo became popular, hairstylists and women from all over the world relied on hair spray to enable hold on the hair. But the main issue with hair spray is that it can get too stiff, especially when the formula dries up. When you use dry shampoo, you won’t have to deal with the issue of stiffness as it provides subtle hold. It provides the right kind of hold to keep the hair in place. But you would still be able to run your hands through it unlike when you use hair spray.
It can conceal dark roots (for blondes).
Another lesser known thing you can do with your hair using dry shampoo is to conceal dark roots for blonde women. Dark regrowth is one of the biggest puzzles facing women but there is no need to worry about that anymore because you can use dry shampoo to temporarily cover that up. For this purpose, make sure you opt for the powder dry shampoo. The formula will leave behind white powder on the roots to make it instantly lighter and cover up dark roots in an instant.
It prevents curls from clumping.
Use dry shampoo to keep your waves or curls from clumping together. This is a good technique for creating that brushed out curl effect rather than having them all clumped up together in a uniform pattern, which looks so unnatural. Make sure you apply the starch-based dry shampoo all over your hair before you style it. When the formula coats the hair strands, it will create that matte finish so it is less likely to come together.
It can add bounce to your bangs.
Love bangs but hate it when they stick to your forehead? Try using dry shampoo! This is a no-fail technique that enables your fringe from establishing resistance from your skin’s natural oils, which will make it more likely to stick onto the skin. Refrain from applying the dry shampoo all over your bangs, however. Just place them underneath the bangs (the part that comes in contact with your forehead).
