01. Can be used to prevent sweaty hair post workout
If you work out regularly, you would know how annoying those oily, greasy roots feel after a sweat sesh. So instead of worrying about washing your hair later, spray some dry shampoo onto your roots right before a workout. This little step will prevent your roots from getting too sweaty and greasy in the first place, and keep your hair looking fresh even after a rigorous workout.
02. Can be used to tame the brows
Just like dry shampoo helps add some bounce to flat, greasy hair, it has a similar effect on your eyebrows as well. Applying a little dry shampoo helps tame unruly brows and makes them appear instantly fuller. Simply spray a very tiny amount of the product onto your fingers or a spoolie and brush them onto your brows to see the magic unfold.
03. Can be used to add volume
Have thin hair that falls flat? Dry shampoo to your rescue! Apart from soaking up all the grease and reviving your hair, a dry shampoo like the Dove Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo will also lift the root and give you some extra volume. Now, who doesn’t want that?
04. Can be used as a hair spray
If you style your hair regularly and don’t like using a heavy product like hairspray to keep it in place, then dry shampoos are your best bet. Spritz on some dry shampoo all over your roots and length before you style your hair for extra hold. They are lightweight in texture and won’t weigh your hair down.
05. Can be used to keep your bobby pins in place
If you have really silky, smooth hair, then you may be all too familiar with the struggle of keeping your bobby pins in place, right? But dry shampoo can solve that issue for you. Simply spritz some dry shampoo all over the bobby pin before inserting it into your hair. This will provide the pins with a lot more grip and prevent them from slipping.
