Dry shampoo is every woman's best friend and the answer to all of our problems, am I right?! ;)
Snoozed your alarm? Dry shampoo.
Last minute date after your evening yoga class? Dry shampoo.
New mom who'd rather sleep than shower? Dry shampoo.
Simply not a fan of washing your hair? Dry shampoo.
If you're like me you do the typical wake up too late to do your hair, spray some dry shampoo in your hair and go. BUT, I've teamed up with my girl Jenna Markson (who just gave me some fresh new BANGS...photos coming soon) to give you 3 new uses for your dry shampoo! Go give her a follow on IG @hairbyjennamarkson and if you're local to Minneapolis be sure to check her out at Cajah Salon!
Jenna taught me to lift my hair and spray at the roots, give it a minute to dry and then use your finger tips to rub it in (let me tell you that works a lot better than aimlessly spraying like I was doing!).
And now on to Jenna's 3 new tips for using your dry shampoo!
First tip: Use it at night. The night before your second or third day hair, brush hair and the spray dry shampoo at roots. This helps absorb oil as it's produced. You can add more in the morning if needed.
Second tip: Use a dry shampoo that has some grip or hold this way it can double as a texture spray. Jenna introduced me to Oribe which is literally the BEST dry shampoo ever. I've used quite a few different ones and Oribe is awesome for creating a bit more texture that my fine hair needs. (Fine as in thin, not fine as in "girl, you're hair is fine/amazing/beautiful"...in case you needed clarification.)
Side note: This dry shampoo is definitely more expensive than I would normally spend but when something works as well as Oribe does and you can use half the amount of the cheaper version it makes it worth it. I was waiting to finish up another dry shampoo I bought until I bought it because I don't like to waste things so I was so excited when I finally hit the bottom and could get this dry shampoo!
Third tip: Add bulk and hold back combing in. Spray at roots before back combing to keep it from slipping out and spray into the lengths of hair before braiding or putting in a bun. Then gently pull on outer stands of the braid or bun to get a bulkier look.
Anyone do any of these tips? I can't wait to give them a try - especially for my braids and buns!!
A huge thanks to Jenna for sharing her tips - don't forget to go follow her on Instagram to get even more tips like this!
