Mastering dry shampoo
Choose a dry shampoo. Dry shampoo comes in two forms: powder or spray-on. You can apply both to the roots of your hair to soak up excess oils in between shampoos and give longer life to hairstyles. While you don’t need to wash your hair before you use dry shampoo, be sure that it's clean of any hairpins, bands, clips and tangles.
Apply it. If you're using a powder shampoo, sprinkle it over the top of your head, especially in the areas that tend to get oily. Use your fingers to distribute it. If you went for a spray-on shampoo, hold it 6 inches away from your head and spray. This might get messy, so do it over the sink or be ready to clean up when you're all done.
Let it settle in. Allow 5 to 10 minutes for the dry shampoo to absorb all of the oil from your hair. If you have particularly oily hair, wait a little longer. To fill the time while you wait, grab breakfast or pick out your outfit for the day.
Comb the excess shampoo out of your hair. Flip your head upside down and brush out your hair to distribute the powder. For spray, you can use a hair dryer to help the process along. Make sure there are no dusty spots, and then style your hair as normal.
