How to Use Dry Shampoo!

The Best Way to Use Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo!

If you do it right, this product will keep your hair looking amazing for long days without the need to use wet shampoo.

The Morning After Dust by L’Oreal Professionnel is one of my favorite product and it is one we should all have in our beauty counter at home.

When I have my hair consultation with my new clients at Westport Hair & Co, CT some of the key questions to ask are:

How many times a week do you wash your hair?

How oily or dry is your hair between washes?

Many of them respond they wash their hair 2-3 times a week while others say they wash their hair only one time a week. The latter is because they say it takes them too long for their hair to dry, especially in the winter season, or they don’t have that extra morning time when they are in the shower.

Don’t you feel the same way?

Yes, I totally get it. We don’t have that extra time and that is why many times we don’t bother washing our hair during the week and we have to walk with oily/ greasy hair, which makes us feel awkward!

My solution for you and my lovely clientele is to send them home with the amazing Morning After Dust Dry Shampoo from L’Oreal Professionnel.

But your question may now be how do I use this dry shampoo?

Well, it is very easy if you follow my steps and you will be glad about the results it gives to your hair.

It is important to section hair at least 4 inches wide.

Hold Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo can 8 inches away from scalp and spray 1 inch from the scalp. This step prevents the dry shampoo from accumulating too much on top of your crown.

Now massage the dry shampoo throughout and by doing this you will remove any oil or dirt build up you may have in your roots and hair. This will spread the shampoo even more and it will add some volume to your hair.

Brush hair with the Wet Brush, one of my other favorite hair brushes to use in my salon company, throughout from roots to ends. Brushing your hair with the Wet Brush will help eliminating any residue left in the hair.  This will leave hair cleaner and more bouncy. 

This technique will be very helpful when a regular shampoo is not present but we always recommend shampooing your hair to preserve healthy hair strands.
