We all want our hair to be grease free and fresh smelling all the time but washing our hair every day is not a healthy solution. Everyday washing can strip your hair of its natural oils needed for a healthy scalp and hair. The best solution to overcome greasy hair without washing is to use a dry shampoo. It’s just easier to use dry shampoo if you’re in a hurry and need to wash your hair.
A dry shampoo instantly absorbs excess oil and build-up from the scalp and hair. It leaves a fresh feel and texture to the hair. Dry shampoo is not solely used for its oil absorbing properties, but it can, in addition, be used for texturizing freshly washed hair. Clean hair doesn’t hold hairstyles better, so a dry shampoo does the same job of giving texture and volume to hair just like a hairspray.
Its easier to buy a dry shampoo from the drugstore, but they contain unpleasant chemicals, alcohol, and aerosols.
