Lately I’ve been seeing more beauty articles dedicated to dry shampoo and since I haven’t heard much buzz about this in Natural Hair Land, I figured I’d share some info with you all.
Dry shampoo. It allows you to freshen and clean your hair without a drop of water.
Ok, but why? Pros vs. Cons, please.
Constant shampooing can be harsh on your strands and a dry shampoo gives you the option of not having to expose your hair to the detergents used in wet shampoos as often. Also, it is an issue of convenience–you won’t have to deal with the styling process that comes after wetting your hair and the dry shampoo process only takes a few minutes to do if you are in a rush. Of course, dry shampoos may not be as effective as wet shampoo, especially if your hair is really dirty.
How does this even work?
Dry shampoos come in the form of starches, clays, powders and aerosol sprays. They are applied to the roots of your hair where they can absorb the excess oils that are sitting in your hair. You can then brush or blot the dry shampoo out of your hair.
Any dry shampoos I could try?
Some popular examples:
Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

And here are a few Do-It-Yourself dry shampoos you can try…
Although I have not tried a dry shampoo yet, I plan on giving it a spin on my twists in a couple weeks when I know my hair will be in need of a wash. I’ll be sure to share my results and which dry shampoo I decided to go with on here! I haven’t seen it used on kinkier hair so I’m interested to see how it works out.
