We all know washing our hair each day is a no, no, but if you’re like me, your hair is less than perfect by day two forcing us to re-wash it. Now thanks to dry shampoo, we can skip a day or two and still have freshly washed looking hair, even when we don’t have the time.
Dry Shampoo is a powder in a spray form that when applied to your hair, absorbs excess grease and dirt so you don’t have to wash your hair as often. Since I have chemically processed hair, my stylist is always telling me by washing my hair everyday it is stripping the colour faster, which means more trips to the salon, which means more money spent. Dry shampoos will help you achieve a freshly washed look, without harming your hair, and protects the colour all at the same time. Speaking of time, sometimes by the end of the day, especially in the summer, hair can look less than perfect but we don’t want to wash/ have the time, in the evening to re-wash it and that’s when a dry shampoo comes in handy as it’s quick and easy.
