​Dry shampoo hacks: 3 Voluminous style ideas made easy

​Dry shampoo hacks: 3 Voluminous style ideas made easy

Whether you’re an old hand at dry shampoo styling or you’re new to the practice, everyone can use a few new ways to create easy hairstyles that look stunning. Take advantage of the lift that dry shampoo gives your hair with these awesome hair hacks.

Why dry shampoo is the perfect styling tool

Many products you use to style your hair, especially the ones that add volume, are notorious for drying out your lush locks and defeating your long-term hair goals. But you have to admit that they work temporarily, and that’s why you keep using them. 

Dry shampoo has the power to change all of that. It’s the perfect tool for adding volume and style-holding texture to your hair while absorbing oils and boosting the health of your hair. If you select a great dry shampoo that doesn’t use any harmful ingredients, you’re setting yourself up for hair success.

How to use dry shampoo for styling

The key to getting the best results from dry shampoo is learning how to use it correctly. If you’ve had problems with your dry shampoo in the past or less than stellar results, it’s probably because you’re using an inferior product or you’re not using it correctly. Try these tips to hone your dry shampooing skills.

Hack 1: Use powder like a primer

Use a dry shampoo powder and treat it like a hair primer, brushing it through your hair after letting it absorb oils at the scalp level for a couple of minutes. This adds texture by pulling the absorbent ingredients down your hair strands, adding grip along the way. 

In the end, it acts in a way that’s similar to hairspray, but it doesn’t have any of the tackiness and weight that hairspray does. It also doesn’t dry your hair out like the alcohols in hairspray do.

Hack 2: Brushing dry shampoo

If you have thin hair or limp hair, brushing from the underside and pulling the brush outward or upward can give it volume and make it look thicker. 

This is also a great technique for anyone with bangs. Bangs tend to look oilier than the rest of your hair, and you certainly don’t want that around your face. Skip the touch-up bang wash in the sink, and use dry shampoo instead.

As an added tip, buy a brush just for using with your powder shampoo. It will hold onto the residue a little, making it great for bangs and quick touch-ups. This also keeps your other brushes clean. When your dry shampoo brush gets too much build-up, simply wash it.

Hack 3: Dry shampoo and curls

Whether your hair is naturally curly, or you work hard to achieve those springy spirals, it helps to evenly brush the dry shampoo through your hair, and then use your fingers to define your curls or waves. Sometimes a little fingertip shaking or combing is all that’s needed. 

Other times, you’ll want to use your fingers to separate and twist a bit to get the perfect amount of separation and definition. The good news is that the texture in your powder shampoo will help hold those curls in place.

Hair La Vie Dry Shampoo

Hair La Vie’s Dry Shampoo comes to your rescue in two very big ways. It helps you stretch the time between shampoos, so your hair can achieve its natural balance with healthy oils and nutrients. It also gives you a wonderful way to style your hair with built-in texture, a fresh scent, and oil-absorbing ingredients that are never clumpy or harmful to your hair and scalp.

In fact, Hair La Vie’s dry shampoo is such a perfect blend of all-natural ingredients with no harmful chemicals, that your hair gets stronger and healthier after each use. There aren’t many shampoos that can make that claim and stick by it. 

Because Hair La Vie’s dry shampoo comes in powder form, it’s easier to control where it lands and how much you use. It also helps you disperse it throughout the hair for optimal performance.  

Final thoughts

Build upon your plan for the healthiest hair possible with a quality dry shampoo. The right product not only gives you an extra day without shampoo, but it can actually refresh and nourish your hair to make it stronger and healthier in the long run. Not only that but if you learn to work with that dry shampoo, you can have your best hair ever.

Imagine planning to shampoo your hair three days before your big event, just because you want to make that important day a dry shampoo day. It might seem a little crazy now, but with the hair hacks above and some practice, you’ll become a believer.

Remember that using a small amount of dry shampoo and letting it absorb oils before evenly dispersing it is the best way to get the all-over clean and coverage you want. Then use your dry shampoo brush and an under-hand technique to add lift and body. 

For people with curls, turn your fingertips into your greatest styling tool. Shape and shake to create a curl definition that lasts. 

Stick to your hair goals with confidence and style by using Hair La Vie Dry Shampoo. This perfectly balanced blend of plants and natural minerals supports your hair’s health while giving you a fresh, clean look that’s never harmful.
