We’ve shown you how to use dry shampoo and when to use dry shampoo but what are some easy (and surprisingly common) mistakes to avoid?
1. Spraying too close to your roots
A common complaint about dry shampoo is that it leaves white flakes in your hair, but this isn’t always dry shampoo’s fault. Don’t throw your bottle away just yet and check if you’re not misusing it first. As a rule of thumb, you should hold your dry shampoo about 6-inches away from your scalp. If you spray too close, you may be left with chalky residue that can be a pain to remove.
2. Using the wrong colored dry shampoo
Did you know there are dry shampoos that are formulated with color? This is great for people who want to enhance the color of their hair, cover grays, or even hide two-toned roots. Be sure to always use the right color for your hair.
3. Overusing dry shampoo
While dry shampoo comes in very handy, relying on dry hair shampoo every day isn’t something we would recommend. Sure, less water usage helps the planet, but we also want to make sure you’re taking care of your hair. Only use dry shampoo about once or twice a week to revive hair between washes.
