That’s why, from unCOMO, we explain how to use dry shampoo step by step.
What is dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo is a hair product that, mainly, was created to be used in those times of emergency where we need to wash our hair, but we do not have normal shampoo or we can not rinse our hair.
This cosmetic does not need to be rinsed with water at any time and, therefore, is very comfortable and easy to apply. Because of this, it has become one of the essential hair products for many people, among them, many celebrities who confess that they use it on a regular basis, since it also has other advantages.
What is dry shampoo used for?
The main use of dry shampoo is, as previously explained, to clean the hair without the need for rinsing. This feature is essential for those people who have bangs, since this area of the hair gets dirty more easily than the rest. In this way, you can alternate the use of classic shampoo with dry shampoo to avoid washing the hair every day , which usually causes a greater presence of fat and dandruff in the hair, in addition to loss of shine.
But its use on a regular basis also brings other benefits to the hair. One of them is to obtain that the fat and fine hair have more body, volume and texture , avoiding their caking and the continued use of the classic shampoo. In addition, the fact that this product allows to space the washings, also helps any type of dye to be kept for longer in the hair.
Steps to use the dry shampoo correctly
There are different types of dry shampoos, so you must choose the one that is most appropriate for your hair according to its characteristics. When you have chosen the most suitable for you, get a brush that will be necessary to eliminate hair residue.
- First of all, with the hair completely dry, apply the shampoo dry by spraying about 20 centimeters of hair, always dividing the hair into sections. T
- We recommend that you start with the sides and apply it all over the hair , although you should have more influence on the roots , since this is where more dirt and grease accumulates. But it is important that you do not limit yourself to using it only on the scalp, since if you apply it on the whole mane you will get that effect of greater body and texture.
- When you have finished applying the product to all the hair, it is necessary to leave the shampoo on dry for about 5 minutes to get the grease and dirt absorbed properly.
- To properly remove the hair product, we recommend that you brush your hair repeatedly. You can also use a dryer, as long as it is cold programmed.
When should the shampoo be applied dry?
Although many people apply it in the morning, it is best to use it at night , because in this way the dry shampoo will be able to act throughout the night, absorbing more fat. This way, in the morning you will only have to comb it and hollow it slightly to get a bright and healthy mane that will last all day.
