8 Surprising Ways to Use Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo can be used for more than just second-day hair. This article we wanted to share from Cosmopolitan has some great uses for dry shampoo we thought you’d like to know.

8 Surprising Ways to Use Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo doesn’t just sop up oil and give you irresistibly second-day sexy hair like this in an instant; it can help you in a bunch of other surprising ways too.

1. It keeps your curls from clumping together.

If you want your curls to be piece-y and imperfect, keep them from clumping together in a uniform wave by spraying a starch-based dry shampoo.

The starch in the dry shampoo coats your hair and makes it dry and matte, covering your hair’s natural oils, so your curls don’t intertwine and make a master wave.

2. It boosts volume in one spray.

Start by flipping your head upside down and then make sure to concentrate the dry shampoo at your roots first, and then finish by spraying it all over o add some extra texture and volume all around.

3. It helps lock in your hair when you backcomb.

If you’re trying to create an updo that involves backcombing, always spray dry shampoo on the section and then backcomb it to help lock in the tease. It creates a stronger hold.

4. It adds grip to bobby pins.

To keep bobby pins from slipping out of your hair when you’re doing an updo, spray them all over with dry shampoo to give them some grip first.

5. It adds a subtle hold to your hair.

Dry shampoo offers a little hold, but unlike hairspray, it won’t leave you with helmet hair of any kind. It gives you that touchable hold that you can still run your hair through.

6. It keeps your bangs from sticking to your forehead.

Spraying it under your bangs only will keep your fringe from sticking to the oil on your forehead. You don’t need to spray dry shampoo all over your bangs — the underneath is the most important part. It keeps your fringe together nicely as well.

7. It can help you reverse your style.

If you wear a slicked back style one day and the next day you don’t have time to wash it but want it to look windblown, spray dry shampoo all over your hair and then brush it through with a paddle brush. You need to work the products out of your hair that slicked it back initially, so the dry shampoo will help reverse your hair texture back.

8. It can help conceal dark roots if you’re a blonde.

If you’re trying to cover up dark regrowth, you have to go for a powder dry shampoo instead of a starchy one, because that formula will impart white powder onto your roots that help cover them up.
