WHICH DRY SHAMPOO IS RIGHT FOR YOU -
DRY SHAMPOO FOAM OR DRY SHAMPOO SPRAY?
It wasn’t so long ago that you only had one option when you didn’t feel like washing your hair, and that was dry shampoo. It does exactly what it sounds like, cleaning the hair without requiring you to actually, you know, wash it. Dry shampoo is a total savior for those times when you just can’t even with the shower (or you sleep through your alarm, your back-up alarm, and your back-up back-up alarm. Oops).
It’s also a proven color saver, as the less you can wash your hair, the longer your dye job will last. Plus, since hair is at its weakest when wet, dry shampoo can alleviate some of the stress you might be putting on already damaged strands with constant washing and styling.
Those with fine, straight, or wavy hair were perfect candidates for dry shampoo, but — because they have to be brushed out to be activated, those with curly or coiled hair weren’t able to use them for risk of messing up or even damaging the curl structure. Enter: dry shampoo foam. The newest way to not wash your hair, dry shampoo foam allows even the curliest among us to skip washes for even longer. Dry shampoo foam works for multiple hair types. It all comes down to what you want your hair to do and how you want it to do it.
In order to help you find your perfect non-wash day product, we’ve put together this handy flowchart that breaks down which one is your best bet based on your hair type, daily habits, and the look you want. Check it out below, then keep reading to learn more about your ideal match.
Now, go with the flow!
How often do you wash your hair?
If You Chose Hair Affair Never Tell Dry Shampoo…
If You Chose Hair Affair Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam…
Speaking of exercise, Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam is the perfect pick for spinners, runners, yogis, and whatever other sport you love. It features a long-lasting fruit & floral scent encapsulated in touch-activated micro-capsules. Read: In addition to eradicating that sweaty scalp funk on contact, anytime you touch your hair, you’ll unleash a burst of fragrance freshness. Another key benefit? You don’t have the heavy brush-out step that typical dry shampoos require. That’s why it’s one of the only dry shampoo options that will actually work on curly hair.
Here’s how you use it. Prep your hair to work in sections. Dispense a small amount of foam onto your fingertips and then apply it to your roots. Do NOT apply it directly from the can to your roots like you would with a typical dry shampoo. Massage the foam in and repeat for each section. Then, finger-comb throughout your hair. Boom, done. And don’t worry if it feels wetter than typical dry shampoos. This is part of its magic, and it dries in a flash!
If You Chose Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo…
Conclusion: How will you know that you’ve found The One? Your hair will be left looking, feeling, and smelling noticeably cleaner and more refreshed — not feeling like a different kind of dirty (i.e. trading grease for grit). Just don’t be surprised if your shower goes on strike after your third, fourth, or even fifth day of wash-free living.
