Dry shampoos are a godsend when your hair's greasy and gross and you don't have access to a shower for a much-needed hair wash.
And the fact is that in hot and sunny Singapore, greasy hair is a real problem. That's why we're sharing our dry shampoo hacks, plus our top dry shampoo picks, right here.
TIP #1: DON'T SPRITZ ON WET OR SWEATY HAIR.
Dry shampoos have ingredients to sop up grease, not moisture. You'll need your hair to be dry, otherwise, the dry shampoo will be hampered by the sweat and moisture and can't work to get rid of the grease.
TIP #2: SPRAY STRATEGICALLY.
Part your hair and spray directly at the roots section by section. Leave for five minutes to let it work it's grease-sopping magic. And finally brush out the excess with a natural bristle brush. This brushing is crucial to get rid of any telltale sign of white residue.
TIP #3: REFRAIN FROM TOUCHING YOUR HAIR.
Hands off, once you have sprayed on the dry shampoo. This is because your hands and fingers might be contributing more icky muck to your hair and ruining that dry shampoo fresh hair effect you've worked so hard to get.
