Do you want to give a fresh look to your hair without washing your hair with a shampoo? Do you fear that using regular shampoo every day is not a good idea as it may discolor your hair? Dry shampoo is your choice in those circumstances. It is a spray-and-forget kind of a deal, and you can make your fine hair look even better if you use the following tips.
Step by steps guide to apply dry shampoo
1. Choose the dry shampoo that suites your hair
There are verities of products available – some use oil and some use food grain ingredients such as rice, oat etc. Oat powder based dry shampoo suites dry hair, tree oil works best for oily hairs and the rice powder based ones for normal hair. Check the product label and choose the one depending on the type of your hair. Make sure you have checked shampoo reviews and the product is reliable. Ask around if you know anyone who is familiar with beauty products in general and dry shampoos in particular.
2. Prepare your hair
Quickly comb your hair and make sure there are no tangles. If your hair wet due to sweat, dry with a towel if you have time.
3. Apply dry shampoo
If you are using dry shampoo spray, hold the hair straight up and spray the shampoo into the scalp. Spray over the top portion of your head and gently massage so that it spreads. Allow 6-8 minutes for it to absorb the grease and brush the hair. Some well known brands such as Pantene suggest blowing the hair with a hair dryer.
If you are using dry shampoo powder, the process is very similar. Instead of spraying the substance, you spray the powder into the scalp. Massage it and spread it over the top portion of your head. Brush your hair so that it spreads evenly through out the hair and gives the fresh look and fragrance to your hair.
4. Clean the residue
Now you need to clean up the residue and remove any remaining powder in your scalp. Gently brush your hair or use a hair dryer to remove the dust.
That’s all there is to it. The whole process should not take more than 5 minutes. If you are using the dry shampoo regularly, you will be able to do all this in 2 minutes or less. Compare that to the effort it takes to use wet shampoo and then drying your hair.

The best hair shampoo available in the market may not work well with your hair. So you have to try few brands before you settle with one.
