Dry Shampoo

One way to tackle those greasy tresses and turn your bad hair day into good one is with dry shampoo.If you haven’t had the opportunity to try dry shampoo or just never heard of it lets fill you in. Dry Shampoo is a powder like substance in a aerosol can designed to absorb oils and add volume to the hair. The way it works is pretty simple, the alcohol or starch in the product soaks up the excess oil and grease in your hair, giving it a cleaner, fresher appearance. You can start by spraying your roots lightly, let it sit a minute or two, then brush it out. A pro tip is using it little by little seeing how much is needed. Over applying may cause a powdery appearance. Now that some of the oil has been absorbed styling your hair as normal should be easy for a much improved look.
 

Messy Bun/Braids
