If you have yet to introduce dry shampoo into your regular beauty routine, do not suffer another bad hair day. Dry shampoo has come a long way from the baby powder-esque drugstore formulations and can turn limp locks into a glam ’do before you can say “no, actually, I’m not wearing hair extensions”. The best way to apply? Hold hair around your crown straight up with a brush. Holding the nozzle about ten inches away from your head, spray short bursts of dry shampoo onto your roots. Let the product sit for a couple of minutes, then massage it into your scalp and brush it out. Apply more as needed, especially for a Lanvin-like beehive.
Batiste Original Dry Shampoo, $9: This spray has a light, fresh scent and it’s great for achieving lift at the roots and freshening up between shampoos. The formula is white, so it’s best used sparingly and from a distance. For the price, it’s a great value for “heavy users”. Available across Canada at select Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix.
T3 Refresh Volumizing Dry Shampoo in Auburn Tone, $25: We are loving the custom shade of this shampoo (available in 3 shades), which blends seamlessly into our red locks and makes us want to use it for a little “boost” nearly every day! It’s also ideal for thickening up our freshly-washed hair for more substantial chignons. Available across Canada at Sephora or call 1-877-SEPHORA.
