    Who is our best friend on days we have a bad hair day or just don't feel like washing our tresses? A dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is a magical product, it helps remove all the grease and oil in your hair and makes them look fresh just like they look after a quick shampoo. 

    We have all used a dry shampoo atleast once in our lives and many continue to use it almost everyday. From refreshing our hair after a sweaty workout at the gym to helping us extend the life of our salon straightened hair, it does it all. 

    If you are still new to this beauty product or not sure if you are using it correctly then this guide is for you.

    Do Spray It Right

    Yes, the dry shampoo does take away all that greasiness from your hair but it is of no use if you use it incorrectly. You need to spray the dry shampoo right to get the perfect results. First, divide your hair into small sections and then begin to spray. When using the spray, move your hand in sweeping motion.

    Spray the dry shampoo from a good distance of about 8 inches or you can end up using too much product which will then build up on your scalp. 

    Do Brush Out Your Hair After Using Dry Shampoo

    Once you have used dry shampoo on your scalp, make sure you brush your hair out or you just won't get that fresh and clean hair look. Brushing out will help you spread out the product and give you a more even look. However, make sure you don't brush your hair immediately after spraying the dry shampoo because it does take time to set. Hold for a few seconds and then use a brush. 

    Don't Use It On Wet Hair

    Dry shampoo is formulated to be used on dry hair. Using it on wet hair won't really give you any results. If you have wet hair then quickly dry them out and then use the dry shampoo. Dry shampoo doesn't absorb the oil and dirt if the hair is wet.

    If you are picking a dry shampoo which comes with a hue then make sure you choose the one closest to your natural hair colour. Going for a shade too light or too dark can leave a strange cast on your hair which can ruin your entire look. In  fact, if you pick a dry shampoo colour which is close to your natural hair, you can also use it to cover your grey roots.

    Don't Just Spray On The Top Layer Of Your Hair

    Even if you are in a hurry know that using your dry shampoo just on the top layer won't help. You need to use the dry shampoo on the scalp where the dirt and oil really collects. In that way you will be able to achieve fresh hair look that last for longer. If you use the dry shampoo on the top layer only, your hair will end up looking greasy after a few minutes. 

    Dry shampoo is truly a saviour but make sure you use it in a good gap so that your scalp gets to breathe every now and then and there is no build up on it which can prevent your hair growth or lead to hair issues like dandruff, hair loss, itching among others. 

    We hope these tips help you use your dry shampoo correctly so that you get the desired results. For more such beauty related stories, stay tuned!
