The right and wrong way to apply dry shampoo
When you spray your dry shampoo, it’s important that you’re spraying at least four to six inches away from the targeted spot. This way the product won’t leave chalky marks, says Batiste expert Val Benavides (via Glamour UK). Benavides recommends waiting a few minutes to allow the dry shampoo to absorb the excess oil, then brushing through your hair afterward to remove any excess product. Giving the dry shampoo enough time to lock into the gunk in your hair is super important.
If you really want the tea on how to step up your dry shampoo game, then you’ll want to try this hack from celebrity hairstylist Daniel Martin. He told Flare that after you’ve sprayed the product on your hair, you should give your mane a quick blowout with your hair dryer. “This will help distribute the product away from the scalp and a little into the mid lengths,” Martin explained. “That helps with volume and removes visual residue.” This trick works especially well with our darker-haired friends.
