How To Get The Best From Your Dry Shampoo – Advice From Simone Thomas Top Bournemouth Hair Salon

Whether you’re in a rush or you get surprised with an outing sometimes a dry shampoo is all you can go to for luscious locks. Check out leading hair loss expert and nutritionist Simone Thomas’ best tips on dry shampoo:

Using dry shampoo is one of the best hair tricks you can do when you don’t have time, or simply don’t want to wash and dry your hair. When using dry shampoo, you should spray your roots to help absorb any of the grease and oil to reinvigorate your hair. The majority of people tend to rub in the dry shampoo and go on with their day, but they are only leaving in the excess dirt, oil, and product in their hair. The great hairstyle tip is to use your hairdryer and blow out all of the dry shampoo product from your hair once you have used it. This will help to remove all of the oils and products and give you not only a great look, but also healthier hair.
For those that suffer from overly greasy hair well you’re not alone.

Hot weather, working out and touching your hair too often can all play a part in generating excess oil which can leave your hair looking dull and dirty. Try to avoid the temptation of over washing. Adding dry shampoo or some texture powder to your roots can revamp greasy hair in seconds. Volumising dry shampoo will absorb excess oil from the scalp without leaving lots of product behind. You can use regular dry shampoo and texture powder to create a similar look and add some much-needed volume to lank hair. 

I don’t use dry shampoo weekly maybe every other week depending on what is sprung on me. I have a few that are my trusty favourites in my bathroom cabinet and even though I own hair salons and hair loss clinics I do treat myself to one other dry shampoo product which I don’t stock in my business.  

My two personal go to products are the Davines Hair Refresher which I stock and sell within my business and online on our shop so I am lucky I can help myself to this all the time. Hair refresher is a dry shampoo that absorbs excess sebum, leaving the hair clean and hydrated. It does not leave residue and it does not weigh down your hair. It is suitable for all hair types; it also works with natural ingredients like rice flour which has highly hydrating and absorbent properties. It has a beautiful citrus fragrance that makes you want to jump on a plane to Italy and walk through a plantation of lemon trees. The technology with the scent “indoor” neutralises bad odours which can occur with dirty greasy hair and sebum from the scalp. You can buy yours here.

When I am out shopping and having a treat day then my go to store for my skincare products, make-up and an extra hair treat is from Space.N.K which is ORIBE Gold Lust Dry Shampoo. Not only does this product absorb your oil from your hair and scalp it leaves it fresh, clean as well as boosting your hairs volume and texture, UV and colour protecting.

There are so many different brands and variations of dry shampoos / dry texturing sprays it varies on the individual and also budget. Some are coloured which also helps when roots covering the odd stray grey or root growth. Be careful with how much you use and how often, if overused, it could cause the hair to dry and break more easily, leading to thinning and possible balding.

Dry shampoo absorbs excess oils and adds a volumising texture to your hair. If you don’t have dry shampoo handy, try this simple trick: take a teaspoon of baby powder and gently massage it into your scalp at the roots. This will also absorb excess oils and make your hair appear fresher. Tip: use little by little to make sure not to use too much, or otherwise it will be noticeable.

There are so many different dry shampoos available on the market it really depends on your budget so my top three recommendations are:

  • High end product: Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
  • Middle range price: Davines Hair Refresher. My favourite
  • Low price point: Batiste Dry Shampoo. They have a huge selection as well as coloured dry shampoo options.

** Remember if you wear hair extensions, products such as hairspray, dry shampoo and mousse will dry out your hair extensions and can destroy them so be mindful with what you are using.
