Place the dry shampoo about 6-8 inches away from your hair, and spray your roots in short bursts.
Repeat until your roots are covered.
Allow to dry for a minute or two.
Take the towel and and rub into your roots to absorb the product.
You can use fingers instead of a towel, but the towel does a better job.
Use your brush to continue to move the product through hair and then style as desired.
Roots can also be teased once the dry shampoo has been distributed. That's it!
O T H E R U S E S
- Try using dry shampoo the night before and then brushing through in the morning.
- If you're too tired after a long night out to wash your hair, spray dry shampoo all over your hair, then brush through, to quickly rid stinky hair before sleeping. You'll probably have white powder residue, but the function here is to rid the smell. Check out my other No More Stinky Hair tip.
- Spray a little dry shampoo on your Bobby Pins before using them for extra hold in hair.
- Dry shampoo works for stinky shoes too! I use this when traveling so my suitcase doesn't smell. Just spray a little into shoes and let them dry overnight.
R E M I N D E R S
- Dry shampoo is not applied to hair the same way as hairspray. It doesn't work as hairspray.
- Apply at the roots only, not on the top layer of hair.
- Don't spray heavily and then brush out. Short bursts, towel-drying your roots, and brushing will work the best.
- Use clear or brown powder dry shampoo if your hair is dark to yield best results.
- It is not a solution for actual dirty hair--it works to refresh and absorb oil from roots.
