Dry shampoo has been one of the most life changing inventions since sliced bread. It has drastically altered the way many men and women choose to plan their beauty routine. But how much dry shampoo is too much dry shampoo?
What exactly is dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo has been around for a long time, in some form or another. Years ago, before it become commercially available in the handy aerosol container it currently is sold in, some people used corn starch in much the same manner. Essentially, the product (despite it’s packaging) hasn’t changed too significantly. It works by absorbing the sebum (a mixture of fats and waxes that are naturally produced by your scalp’s sebaceous glands) and other oils from the roots of your hair. The dry shampoo makes your hair look clean and refreshed, restores bounce and shine, and saves you time! It often comes in a variety of scents and styles and you can occasionally still find it in powder form if you’d prefer something a little more vintage!
What is the best way to apply dry shampoo?
The best way to apply your dry shampoo is by spraying the aerosol container over 6 inches from your roots. If you do it too closely, it tends to build up too quickly and doesn’t get distributed evenly through your roots like needed to really soak up that gunk. Only apply on dry hair, let it sit for a few minutes, then comb through with your fingertips and rub it into your scalp (as a benefit, you get a little scalp massage). Finish by brushing your hair through with a soft brush. Don’t use too much, as the build up will defeat the purpose of using the dry shampoo in the first place.

How often should I use my dry shampoo?
Ultimately, how much you use dry shampoo is incredibly individual. People produce sebum at different rates and how often they need to shower can vary greatly. Using dry shampoo too frequently can lead to hair that is weighed down and dull, which is obviously opposite of why people use it! The dry shampoo can also build up at your roots and form a paste with the sebum. It’s important to still shower to make sure you rinse off all of the built up dry shampoo, product and sebum from your hair. Also, using dry shampoo for too many days in a row without a break can clog your hair follicles, inhibiting hair growth. According to dermatologists, showering (at least occasionally) is not only good for washing off the built up dry shampoo, it is also important to maintaining scalp health and reducing the possibility of dandruff and other unsightly hair related issues.
Although a beauty routine is an important part of everyone’s day, the majority of people would choose an extra 15 minutes of sleep in the morning over having to get up and shower, if given the option. Dry shampoo can be a great option to save you some time and still keep your hair looking fresh!
