How Dry Shampoo Can Save You Work and Time

Dry Shampoo to Save Time

Wide Tooth Comb For Distributing Hair Product Evenly ISA Professional

I admit that even though I try to keep my hair healthy and frizz free, I also have hectic days that give me almost no time to spend in front of the mirror before heading out into the world. Depending on when you last washed your hair, you may need something to help during these moments as well. Environmental elements leave a lot of dirt built up in your hair, which also weighs your hair down, making your hair look limp and dirty. I decided to give dry shampoo a chance and I have to say, it works wonders when you need your hair to look refreshed in a hurry. Keep in mind that this is not necessary for daily use, it's more for those days you have to skip washing your hair and want it to look and smell great anyway.

Something to remember about dry shampoo is that you need to have a light hand when applying it, this is not a hair spray you would use liberally to make your look stay in place. Dry shampoo is best used on greasy roots since it takes away that unwanted greasy shine giving your roots a clean look and feel, without the need for water. It absorbs the oil on your scalp, not your hair, so there's no need to worry about it taking away the natural oils that are good for your hair. If you suffer from dandruff or if your scalp doesn't produce much oil, then dry shampoo is not recommended.

I usually spray 2 very short bursts on my roots and then comb it through, so it goes on evenly on my hair. I have friends who prefer to gently pat it in, since combing it leaves residue on their hair so that's another option if you have the same problem. If you feel like you used too much, just keep combing your hair from roots to end until most of it is absorbed and you don't see any residue. Try to always be on the conservative side and don't overdo it.


Do not apply dry shampoo on wet hair, it only works on completely dry hair. After doing my research and trying a few out, I now use Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Dry Shampoo and it works great on my color treated hair.

If you have bangs like me, you know how hard it is to keep them dry and oil free from all the sweat on your forehead throughout the day. Instead of regretting your decision to get bangs, dry shampoo and a flat iron will make you love them. This is why even if I am in a hurry, I always use my Mirror Titanium Digital Flat Iron by ISA Professional to quickly straighten them and then apply my dry shampoo immediately after. This helps my newly straightened bangs from curling or separating all day, making those 5 minutes of my day crucial and always well spent.


Dry shampoos are great at helping you get on with your day, while looking refreshed, with very little effort.

How To Treat An Oily Scalp At Home

DIY Oily Scalp Treatment


All of us can get a greasy scalp from time to time, but there are also those who can't seem to shake off all that natural oil from their hair. Those with oily scalps have to deal with looking like they overdid it with a hair product and some even feel uncomfortable from an itchy scalp. Some people get oily scalps from too much stress at work or school, and some are just born with that type of hair. Since an oily scalp clogs hair follicles with dirt, an oily head of hair can also lead to hair loss, because of poor circulation. While it may seem very frustrating to constantly try to avoid limp, greasy locks, there are ways to help you treat your scalp in the comfort of your house. If you are having issues with an oily scalp, follow these tips to get balanced, healthy hair!


Use High Quality Hair Products and Styling Tools


Cheaper brands of hair products like shampoos and serums leave a lot of buildup in your hair and scalp because of the harmful chemicals they contain. These then leave you with even oilier hair, making it an endless cycle. While some believe you should wash oily hair everyday, I have found that shampooing your hair no more than three times a week is the best method. If you wash your hair out too frequently, your oil glands will go haywire trying to make up the oils you keep washing off.


While too much oil is a bad thing, too little oil can also be harmful. Stick to products with natural ingredients that boast oil control benefits; these will help keep your hair balanced, leaving you with healthy locks. Keep in mind that oil absorbing shampoo's usually contain tar, zinc or sulfur. High quality products holds true for heat styling tools as well; a flat iron made of 100% ceramic/tourmaline will protect your hair with evenly heating plates. I suggest investing in the Victorya flat iron by ISA Professional, it leaves hair super smooth and helps prevent damage that other, cheaper brands can cause you.




Only Apply Conditioner On Your Ends, Avoid Your Roots


This is because conditioner will only add more oil to your hair, weighing it down even more. By applying conditioner on your ends, you hydrate any split ends you might have. Avoid conditioning your roots to see the difference in your oil production. Some stylists suggest skipping the conditioner altogether; if you find conditioning your ends to not be enough to control your oil production, try skipping the conditioner for better results. Remember to rinse with cold or room temperature water for a long amount of time, for best results. By rinsing longer than usual, you ensure you get rid of any product still left in your hair, leading to less oil.


Use Dry Shampoo Or Talcum Powder For A Quick Oil Soaking Fix


Dry shampoos are especially beneficial to the oily scalped. Dry shampoos soak up oil from your scalp; use it between washing days to keep your hair looking great. It also removes any environmental build up or dirt on your scalp, leaving your hair nicely scented in the process. You can also use talcum powder to soak up the oil, just apply to the roots and comb through the hair.


Apply Vinegar Rinse Once-Twice A Week


White vinegar has acetic acid which quickly helps control your scalp's oil production and helps prevent dandruff. Mix one cup of white vinegar with half a cup of water. Apply all over your hair, making sure your scalp is soaked. Let it sit for 15 minutes and rinse off with cold water. Your hair will be oil and dandruff free and the smell goes away after hair dries.
