Dry Shampoo – Is it for you?

Dry shampoo is a greasy hair life-saver. It is a quick and easy way to banish oily roots and
give dull, lifeless hair the makeover it needs without water. A once over with dry shampoo can
revitalise your hair. It can add body, absorb excess oil and leave your hair with a refreshing smell. What more could you ask for?

How does it work?
Dry shampoo is a powder which absorbs the excess oils (sebum) produced by the glands on
your scalp. When there is a build up of these oils, your hair will look greasy and may begin to smell.
By absorbing these oils, therefore, the dry shampoo is basically de-greasing your hair without the need to wash it.

How to apply it
1) Wash your hands with soap and water.
2) Apply the dry shampoo to the roots of your hair especially along your parting and around
your face (these are the most visible parts of your hair and usually the greasiest).
3) Massage the powder into the roots with your fingertips for about 30 seconds.
4) With a clean brush or comb, brush out the powder or rub it out of your roots with a clean
5) Don’t tell anyone that you didn’t wash your hair properly or they’ll think you’re dirty!!!!

Products Available
There are a number of different brands of dry shampoo available. They are all relatively
cheap (approx. €10) and are a good investment considering they’re only used for hair emergencies.
Batiste® is probably the most popular brand and is my first choice, as it’s widely available in
most supermarkets and pharmacies. As well as this, there are a number of different Batiste®
products designed for all hair colours and with varying scents. They also come in small travel sizes which are handy for those weekends away where you don’t have access to a hair-dryer.

The major shortcoming with dry shampoo is the white residue that it can leave on your roots
after each application. My advice to you therefore is, go easy on the application and make sure you brush it or rub it all out before leaving the house.
