Dry Shampoo

(An Essential!)

By now you probably know that washing your hair daily is bad for you. It strips away the natural oils that keep your hair healthy and well moisturized. So if you wash your hair everyday, my advice- please STOP!

"I have to wash my hair everyday because it gets oily and gross if I don't." --syndrome be gone!

Dry Shampoo is a super fine powder that comes in spray on dust on and shake on forms.  Its main purpose is to soak up the oil your scalp produces.  Which makes our hair look oily and dirty. The brilliant cylinder of dust can literally takes hair from looking oily & limp  to looking freshly blow out in one quick poof. Consider it like an oil blotting papers, but for your hair. ;)

First of all when applying Dry Shampoo you are allowing your natural oils to stay in contact with your scalp longer(which we all know is a good thing.) The reason we do not like to usually to do this is because after a while it looks um, gross. Dry shampoo=BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Oils can stay put nourishing the hair, while the powder takes away the unwanted oil/sheen.

Ladies when we thermally straighten your hair with a blow dryer &/or flat iron. When we do this, we certainly want to make it last as long as possible. That way we don't over it with heat styling. However by applying dry shampoo after freshly straightened hair can not only create a gorgeous blow out look but also extend the length of its "life." Think of it like this; high temperatures cause condensation + gland stimulation at your scalp. Oil, sweat and moisture lead to curls coming back. Applying dry shampoo to the roots before working out or stepping out into warmer weather can significantly slow that down by soaking it all up!

Ladies with short hair and bangs--

I know I don't have to inform you that your hair comes in constant contact with your forehead(picking up the oils from your face causing annoying unwanted separations.}  However with dry shampoo  will fix all of that too! Dry shampoo also gives amazing added texture to short cropped hair.

Other Great Benefits of Dry Shampoo-

It boosts hair volume in one spray.

It keeps curls from clumping together.

Helps lock in hair when you comb it backwards.

Can help conceal dark roots(blondes).

Adds subtle hold to hair.

Huge time saver.

Fewer washes=hair color doesn't fade as quickly.
