Whoever said that Mother Nature isn’t a powerful force was just crazy. Summer rain leads to major humidity…which leads to seriously sweaty roots…which leads to frequent shampoo sessions…which leads to dry, frizzy ends. It’s a vicious, never-ending cycle. Enter dry shampoo. The hair washing stand-in has the power to lift oil from the scalp, absorb dirt and product build-up, and leave hair looking and feeling fresh. Take that, Mother Nature.
Here’s the best way to dry-shampoo, courtesy of Ammon Carver, Artistic Director for Matrix:
1. Comb or brush through your hair to distribute oils evenly.
2. Start at the top of your head, create a center part and spray lightly along the part, holding the dry shampoo an inch or two from your head.
3. Make another part about a few inches away and repeat.
4. Continue creating parts and spraying on each side of the original part until you reach your ears on each side.
5. In the back, start at the crown of your head, create a horizontal part and spray. Continue parting and spraying to the bottom of your head.
6. Gently massage the powder into your scalp, as if you were lathering up your shampoo.
7. Wait a few minutes to allow the powder to absorb the excess oil and dirt.
8. Brush through to remove all of the powder. Flip your hair upside down and brush through once more.
