It's no secret that dry shampoo can really save your hair, be it from greasy roots or dry, damaged ends caused by over-shampooing. But, are you making the most of your dry shampoo? To help you get hair that looks blowout-fresh, we have some handy tips and tricks for you below!

1/ Don't spray it too close

As with hairspray, you should hold the can approximately six inches from your roots when applying dry shampoo. This will ensure an even distribution, and reduce your chances of powdery, white clouds appearing all over your head.

2/ Only use as much as you need

The greasy part of your hair, the root, is the area that benefits most from dry shampoo, so don't waste it on the lengths and ends unless you want to create a more matte look. As a general rule, if you notice some white buildup in one area, you've applied too much, but don't worry, it'll brush out.

3/ Give it time to work

The purpose of dry shampoo is to absorb excess oil at the root, but it can only do this if it's left on the hair long enough to work. Leave it on your hair for about 5-10 minutes so it can eliminate as much greasiness as possible.

4/ Brush it out

To work the formula through your hair effectively and avoid buildup, you have to brush dry shampoo out. A brush with natural bristles tends to work best, but if you need to improvise, a comb and your fingers can work, as long as you're thorough.

5/ Never use it on wet or damp hair

This may sound like a no-brainer, but you should never, ever use dry shampoo on wet or damp hair. The powder will mix with the water to create a kind of paste which is essentially extreme buildup that can only be fixed by washing your hair... which defeats the whole point of using dry shampoo!
