I'm sure that most of you have heard that washing your hair everyday isn't the best. Depending on your type of hair, there is a certain amount of times you should wait between shampoos.
Thick, curly hair can wait 3-4 days.
Fine, straight, or even fine curly hair, might have to be done every day or every other day.
For those of you that feel that your hair looks oily enough that you need to wash it for work, but not oily enough to wash it if you were staying home - dry shampoo to the rescue!
Dry Shampoo - a product that absorbs oil and leaves hair smelling fresh (even though its not..hehe!)
Dry Shampoo's have been out for years, however many people have only become familiar with them recently since they have become popular. They are usually packaged in an aerosol spray can, but they can be in a powder form. The powders may come in "shades" to match your hair, or are translucent to work with all hair colors - powders can be messy, I recommend the cans! Less messy too!
When it comes to dry shampoo, you want to spray, or dab powder, near your part first (since that is usually where it is most oily) then run through your strands, if needed. Hair gets oily when your scalp is oily. There are many factors that can change how oily your scalp and hair may get. You may be using the wrong shampoo. Just because the shampoo is for brunettes, and your a brunette, doesn't mean it is the best shampoo for you. You have to take into consideration your scalp. Is it itchy and feel dry? Does it feel oily to the touch even when you just showered? These are all questions you should be asking yourself when purchasing your next shampoo.
*Ex - If you feel your scalp and hair get oily rather quicky, purchasing a hydrating shampoo and deep conditioner is going to make it worse.
