Are you using your Dry Shampoo Correctly?
Dry Shampoo 101
I find more often than not that most women don’t really know how to use their dry shampoo, they really think they just spray it on and voila their done! I wish it were that magical of a product but not quite there yet. This is precisely why so many woman give up on it. When Rachael (the Creative Director of Style Report Magazine) also mentioned that dry shampoo didn’t work on her fine hair, I knew I needed to give to little 101 tutorial on this subject. And yes, it works on FINE hair too! I made sure that the model in this tutorial had fine hair so all my fine hair gals, including Rachael, know this will work on them too.
Here’s what every woman needs to know about dry shampoo.
These are my 3 favorite products for “next-day” or “day 2” hair. I know we’d like to think “messy hair don’t care” but really, we care.
I’m personally in love with Unite and have the line stocked in my salon. Need some? Call us at 949.459.0808
We’ve all woken up with hair that looks like this. The trick is knowing how to make it look fresh and clean with dry shampoo.
Start with Unite 7 Seconds Refresher
Make two inch sections, starting in the back on the bottom.
Spray each section at the root and up the hair about 2 inches with dry shampoo. Massage the product in to the hair to evenly distribute. FIRST IMPORTANT STEP…. Let dry (about 5 minutes)!
After you’ve sprayed dry shampoo around all your roots (remember to LET IT DRY) section your hair and begin to blow dry. YES BLOW DRY. Take sections starting underneath and blow dry section from root to tip. The dry shampoo cleanses the hair while blow drying gets out all the moisture. This is the step that most woman don’t know about. After you dry shampoo, you still need to blow it out!
After you’ve blown out your hair, section by section starting at the nape of your neck, it’s time to add shine into your ends. I’m a big fan of Unite 7 Sections Glossing.
Now that you’re hair is clean and shinny it’s time to add a little hair spray to keep in place while still being “touchable”.Voilà…. Clean & Shinny Hair!
BIG TIP!!!! Please do not repeat this process for more than 1-2 days in a row as dry shampoo will create a build up on your scalp that makes it hard for new hair to grow pass.
If you thought dry shampoo had failed you before then give this a try and see how you feel about it now, chances are I just changed your mind
