proper-use-dry-shampooWhen your hair is anything but fresh, the only way you can make it seem so is with a dry shampoo. There are days when you shut off your alarm and go back to sleep and when you get up, you barely have time to put some decent clothes on and rush to work or class. As a perverse joke, you seem to have the worst cases of bed head on such frantic occasions. It seems as if the coffers in your head have decided to open up and unleash as much oil as possible, leaving your locks flat, dry and vulnerable to frizz. Dry shampoos become the best alternative if you want to refresh your hair quickly.

What do they do?

Primarily, dry shampoos are considered the perfect product for absorbing pesky oils and grease in between washes and can also give some volume to your hair. This shampoo can be used by people when they don’t have access to water, but need to get rid of some gunk in your hair to give it a little life. The best part is that this shampoo doesn’t strip the head of oils because it doesn’t make your hair as good as it gets after a shower, but it will be enough to last for a couple of days.

How many kinds of dry shampoos are there?dry-shampoo-tips

There are a variety of dry shampoos that can be found in the market today as they have become a secret styling tool for those leading hectic and busy lives. The aerosol spray is used by most people, but they are also available in powder form if that doesn’t work for you. There are also organic dry shampoos available in the market, which are composed of only natural ingredients that can be used safely.

What do they contain?

There is a lot of gas in most of the dry shampoos. One can of dry shampoo typically contains a mixture of absorbing agents, aerosol propellants, conditioning agents, solvents, emulsifying agents, fragrances and preservatives. However, these ingredients can leave particles and odor in the air, due to which the use of dry powder shampoo is recommended by people.

Can dry shampoo be made?

These days, it has become possible for people to make any product they want at home, as long as they have access to the necessary ingredients. Dry shampoo can also be concocted in the kitchen because a few important ingredients that are needed include baking soda, salt, oatmeal, baby powder, cornmeal, cornstarch and oatmeal, all of which can easily be found there.

How do you use it?

Just with every product, excessive use of something is never beneficial. The same is applicable to dry shampoo. Buildup can be created if it is sprayed too close to the head. The spray should be kept about six inches away from the head and should be sprayed near the roots for getting the desirable results. The dry shampoo will dissolve easily when individuals comb, brush or tousle their hair.
