How to Apply Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo may not take the place of real shampoo, but when you’re in a hurry, it’s a great way to eliminate grease, cover up odor, and even add some volume and shine. Dry shampoos work especially well on blond hair or ashy tones. If you have darker hair you might find the powder takes away some of your shine. Still, it’s a small price to pay for getting rid of that greasy look. Here’s how to use a dry shampoo the right way.
Hi. I'm Aubrey Loots from Studio DNA Salon in Los Angeles and I'm going to give you just a quick overview on how to use a dry shampoo. Dry shampoos come in two forms. It's either a powder or it's a spray. I use three different types of dry shampoos. The first one I'll demonstrate for you comes in a powder form obviously to be used on dry hair that's why it's called a dry shampoo and what's great about all dry shampoos, it gives the hair a great texture. So when your hair is a little greasy, the natural oils coming through and you just don't have the time to do a shampoo and you just got home from work and you're running out to an event and your hair is flat, a little oily, a little greasy. Well, dry shampoo is perfect for that. It buys you an extra day or two where you don't have to shampoo your hair and you don't even have to get your hair wet obviously and it absorbs all the natural oils and it give you body. That's the best thing. That's why people love dry shampoos. So one form of the dry shampoo is in a powder form and you just sprinkle it on the root just like this. Okay. And you just tap it in and you can actually see just by me pulling the hair up like this, the difference of body between that area and this area that has no dry shampoo. It's great and in this size easy to put in your purse and sprinkle some on. Make sure you pat it in before you walk into your party to give it great body. The other one that I love using is called a dry-texture spray which is a spray version of a dry shampoo and this is also great obviously in dry hair. They come in different sizes and you wanna get it at the root. All dry shampoos are meant for the root areas to mid-length only. So it's gonna be a little cold when it hits your scalp. So you wanna hold it a little bit away from the hair and just give it a little time to dry. This one smells particularly good and the same thing because if you spray it, it will take a few extra seconds to dry. The powder already comes in a dry form and the same thing, you just lift it up and you get great body and you can do it throughout the whole head or just through the top area. Again, lift up the section of hair straight at the roots. It's great to do your whole head and then flip over and just shake it back and forth but this spray is fantastic and it gives incredible volume. So those are two forms of dry shampoo. Then there's a third one and the third one actually is kind of a 3-in-1. It's give you body. It's a dry shampoo so it absorbs the natural oils and it has color in it. So imagine you just cannot get into the salon to get those roots touched up. Now, Mady does not have a lot of root but this is a great demonstration to show you if you do have a root, how easy it would be to cover your root. So it's a dry shampoo with color in it. It comes in red, in black, in white, this is blondish color to match her hair. So shake it up. You also hold it from a distance. I'm actually gonna put her head down and just show you... how it takes away the root. Isn't that great? Just lightly and the shampoo is right out. It is so easy. You also lift up the roots just like I showed you before and you go right in and it's almost a perfect match to her color. So for you ladies with the natural highlights, gray hair which we like to call a natural highlight, something like this is perfect to buy you an extra week before you have to go to a salon to get the roots touched up and the benefit is it gives you body and it's a dry shampoo and no roots. And those are the three dry shampoos that I love using. Have fun.
