Dry shampoo is a real boon for us today in our fast paced lives, but too much of anything is not good! Make sure you spray the dry shampoo correctly onto your hair. Take a look at the most common mistakes people make today when using their dry shampoo. 6 Mistakes You’re Making While Using Your Dry Shampoo 1. Getting too close To distribute the dry shampoo evenly, make sure to spray it about 6 inches away from your roots. 2. Using more than you should When your hair is oily, spray some dry shampoo to make it look refreshed and dry. Excessive dry shampoo on your hair will dull and discolour it. Spray a little at first, wait a while and then spray some more if needed. 3. Spraying on the wrong section Even if you have not shampooed your hair since a while, you must only spray the dry shampoo to the top couple inches. In all likeliness, the bottom part of your hair would not be too greasy, so applying more spray would only make your hair stiff. 4. Not massaging it after application After you spray the dry shampoo, use your fingertips to massage it into your roots and scalp for best results. 5. Immediately rubbing it after spraying Once you spray the dry shampoo, give the product time to work into your hair and let it sit for a couple of minutes before you massage, brush or comb it. 6. Using it every day If you use dry shampoo in between washes very often, it could be more harmful than you think. The built-up residue can evenly clog your follicles. Try and limit the times you spray it on between your washes to give your scalp a chance to breathe.
