While dry shampoo has served as the ultimate hair saviour since entering the beauty market, turns out, we’ve been doing it wrong all along. Below are hacks from celebrity hair stylist, Anthony Nader, RAW Hair for mastering the art of dry shampoo, promising to keep your strands glossy and fresh for longer.

It seems only natural that the second hair is overdue on its routinely wash, dry shampoo steps in to tackle oils and grease in all its glory. As it would be, dry shampoo actually works best when applied before required. Anthony tells Vogue, “Don’t wait until the morning to spend your valuable time trying to resurrect your blowout or oily roots – tackle this straight on before you go to sleep at night.”

While it may seem simple, Anthony reiterates the importance of giving your can of dry shampoo a good shake before applying to the scalp.“It only takes a few seconds, but giving the can a vigorous shake ensures that ingredients work optimally and don’t leave you looking like you’ve been caught in a snow storm,” says Anthony.

Another common mistake is purchasing a dry shampoo that doesn’t match your hair type or hair colour. On this, Anthony tells us, “There are so many different coloured dry shampoos on the market today – matching up your existing hair colour to the spray can is key when picking a dry shampoo.

As for the tip you’ll be thanking us for later – don’t massage dry shampoo into your oily roots before going to sleep. Nader says: “The best way to apply your dry shampoo is tip your head over, spray the root area and don’t touch it until the morning.”

But how do we perfect the art of polishing tired hair strands? Anthony lets us in on his favourite technique, sharing, “Spray a fraction more in the morning and right before leaving the house in the morning, use your large boar bristle cushion brush to smooth it over the scalp surface, ensuring the roots-to-ends have been brushed.”

Voilà.
