MidWeek Must-Have: Dry Shampoo and How to Use It

Posted by    |    June 27th, 2012 at 8:17 am

If there’s one thing I walked away with after interviewing the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders at their auditions last week, it’s the importance of dry shampoo.

Oh, I’ve used it from time to time when I was in-between washes on a hectic week, but they stressed the importance of dry shampoo in this Texas heat.  Not only does it help absorb the oil and sweat that builds up on your scalp, but it adds volume and texture to squeaky clean hair.  Yep, that’s one way those sexy cheerleaders get that voluminous hair!

Another tip is to combine a small teasing comb and the dry shampoo to create height that will last all day long.  Summers in Dallas aren’t only hot, they are often windy.  To keep your strands in place, don’t weigh it down with a gallon of hairspray.  Tease lightly at the crown, spray a healthy dose of dry shampoo, and lightly mist with a nice, scented hairspray.  Your look will have more swing and bounce, and can withstand windy days. Also, the less you wash your hair, the less damaged and dry it will be.  With dry shampoo, you can skip the daily wash and save your locks some wear and tear.

Some great dray shampoos to try:

Tresemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo: Approx. $2-$4 (Inexpensive and does the job.)

Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo: Approx. $23  (NO white residue! Check out Oscar Blandi’s how-to video here.)

Klorane Dry Shampoo: Approx. $18 (More natural and Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner.)

Now you know a DCC secret to beautiful hair that stays put….whether you’re cheering on the sidelines or cheering yourself up with a margarita.
