I have to be honest and say that I’m not a regular dry shampoo user, so I always thought that it was made to be used in between washes, and that’s it. Well, some hairstylists have schooled me on the fact that dry shampoo is actually a multitasking product that’s also a styling tool.
“Dry shampoo is quite the versatile product for fine hair,” says celebrity hairstylist and groomer Jillian Halouska, whose clients include Julia Garner and Chloë Grace Moretz. “It can be used anywhere from adding texture, creating volume, zapping up oil, creating a base for updos, and even help with curl hold for hot tools.”
The product’s powders and starches help lift your roots to create long-lasting volume and a foundation. Celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend, whose clients include Gal Gadot and Dakota Johnson, says it’s the most-used product in his kit. “The biggest key is hair spray sticks hairs together, which can actually make your hair look even thinner or even finer, whereas dry shampoos have powders and starches in them that keep the hair separated, so it does give you thicker-looking hair,” he says.
