Dry shampoo is one of those not-so-secret beauty must-haves that has gone from being a festival favourite and overnight bag classic, to an everyday hair care staple. Dry shampoo is exactly as it sounds: it’s shampoo but in powder form, meaning you can use it without the need for water. Perfect for rejuvenating roots on hot days, and giving yourself a little extra time between washes, whatever the occasion.
How does dry shampoo work?
The active ingredients in dry shampoo are designed to soak up any excess oil or grease in your hair, generally around the roots, to give it a refreshed appearance. Corn starch is a common ingredient, and aerosol format is used to ensure you get even coverage.
As well as removing unwanted oil from around your roots, dry shampoo can also add texture and volume to your hair. Use it as a pick-me-up spray to give your hair some extra oomph when you’re heading out for the evening.
How many days in a row can you use dry shampoo?
Experts recommend using dry shampoo for up to two days in a row, but no longer. That’s because by day three, your hair and scalp would benefit from a thorough wash to properly remove oils and sebum, as well as any product build-up.
