We're Obsessing Over Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is the best invention since sliced bread - no kidding! Whether your hair is post-gym sweaty, day-two greasy or just downright flat, this magical product can fix it all, taking your hair from whatever to wow in minutes. If you're thinking "I need this in my life!" - you are absolutely correct.

Ladies, dry shampoo is now available in many different formats - powder, spray, mousse and more - so there is something for everyone. As if that wasn't reason enough to obsess over this magical product, here are five secrets that you didn't know about dry shampoo.

It Can Help You Beat Humidity

Rainy weather and the humidity that comes with it can wreck havoc on even the most voluminous mane, leaving it limp, straight and lacklustre. To prevent your hair from falling flat on a rainy day, spray some dry shampoo into your roots after you have styled it. If your hair is wavy or curly, a mousse based product is better.

It Creates The Perfect Bombshell Curls

Have you ever wanted gorgeous and glamorous curls but never been able to achieve them? Again, dry shampoo is your best friend! Start by using a curling wand to create loose curls around your head in roughly two inch sections. Then spray dry shampoo into your roots and flip your head upside down for some extra volume. Gently run your fingers through your hair and you are good to go. Use hairspray to hold the style in place.

It Makes Back Combing Even Better

The next time you want to create a fierce up-do, use dry shampoo to help you style it because texture is the most important thing in this type of hairstyle. Apply a powder dry shampoo to the roots of the area to be back combed to make the tease even better and more long lasting. In situations like these, the effect of dry shampoo is much more natural than other styling products like hairspray.

It Can Be Used To Help Bobby Pins Stay In

Have you ever had the annoying problem of bobby pins slipping out of your hair after a couple of hours? Ladies with fine hair will know exactly what I'm talking about. To increase the grip of bobby pins - this is especially important when you have a long day or night ahead of you - spray them with dry shampoo first. How do you think models' hairstyles stay in place when they walk down the runway? Hint, hint.

It Can Be Made At Home

All you need is a quarter cup of cornstarch (organic) or arrowroot powder and five drops of essential oil. If you have dark hair, use two tablespoons of cornstarch with an equal amount of cocoa. Put the essential oil into the powered ingredients and mix well. Store it in a small jar and use an old foundation or blush brush to apply when required. It really is that simple!
