A definitive guide to dry shampoo

Whether you're new to dry shampoo, or you've been using it for a while, but you're not sure if you're doing it right, we're going through the do and don'ts of dry shampoo use. Consider this your definitive guide to dry shampoo.

Tip 1: Don't spray your entire head of hair.
Work the dry shampoo around your hairline and divide into sections, focusing closer to the root. This is where the build up of grit and oils are generally lurking.

Tip 2: Go lightly
You don't want to spray so much dry shampoo that there's a residual build up on your scalp. A little bit goes a long way.

Tip 3: Massage into your hair
Once you've sprayed, use your fingers to work the product into your hair for even distribution. 
If you're using dry shampoo to style your hair, this will also create further texture by separating clumps of hair.

Tip 4: Don't touch your hair too much
Once you've worked the product in, if you continue to touch, this will bring more oil to the surface and undo all your hard work. Hands off!
Tip 5: Wash your hair
WHAT?! Isn't that the POINT of dry shampoo, so you don't HAVE to?
To a point. But after a while, your scalp and hair will need a nice, deep cleanse to get rid of product build up. Dry shampoo is more of a stop gap.
Look, we also don't want to brag, but we do have a rather extensive and delicious range of some of Australia's best dry shampoos.
