Have you just come back from the gym and your hair is a greasy mess? Washing it every day must feel like a chore to do on top of your other commitments. Using dry shampoo is a great solution for this! There are many reasons why you should be using dry shampoo in your daily routine, here are 7 reasons why you should be using it below.
1. You’ll save money
Hair stylists recommend that you wash your hair every two or three days to keep it healthy, but if you have a busy schedule and can only shampoo once or twice a week, dry shampoo is a great way to keep your hair smelling fresh and clean between washes. A bottle costs around $10 and will last for many months, and you don’t need to use much to reap the benefits. While it’s not a good substitute for regular shampooing, it can be a useful addition to your routine.
2. It’s easy to use
The first thing to know about dry shampoo is that it comes in an aerosol can (like hairspray) or as a loose powder that you sprinkle onto your scalp. Both work equally well; the choice is simply a matter of personal preference. To use the spray version, just shake the can vigorously and hold it about six inches from your head; then spray lightly over the entire scalp area of your head. Follow up by using your fingers to rub it into your scalp until there are no visible traces left on the surface of your hair.
3. It soothes your scalp.
If the hair on your head is tangled, damp, and sweaty all at the same time, it can start to hurt. Using a dry shampoo helps to soothe this pain, and leaves your scalp feeling refreshed.
4. It makes your hair smell pleasant.
Post workout dry shampoo has an odor that is often unwanted by others. Using a dry shampoo will leave your hair smelling fresh and clean, without any of the downfalls of an unpleasant body odor.
5. It makes your hair more manageable.
Dry shampoo revitalizes your locks and allows you to easily style dirty hair without any excess grease weighing it down. We recommend using dry shampoo before styling with heat so you can decrease the amount of heat damage done to your strands.
6. It’s good for your skin.
Sweat and oil can clog pores and lead to breakouts, especially in the summer. When humidity allows sweat to sit on the skin longer and mix with oil already present on the skin’s surface. Dry shampoo can also be used on oily spots anywhere on the body, including around the hairline, forehead and back of neck—just spray as needed
Takeaway: Having dry shampoo is a good thing because it helps you and is good for the environment!
