Avoid ending up on one of Glamour’s cringe-worthy Don’t Lists with these dry shampoo guidelines.
Much like vivid red lipstick or potent perfume, dry shampoo can totally backfire if used incorrectly. You know what we mean: sticky, greasy-looking locks and lackluster volume. It takes practice, but once you’ve harnessed the product’s awesome revitalizing powers, it’s a game-changer. Impromptu cocktail hours? Bring ‘em on. Spin class-deflated locks? Fear not. With Serge Normant’s Meta Revive Dry Shampoo as our prime test subject, we’ve put together a compendium of dry shampoo do’s and don’ts.
Dry Shampoo Do’s
1. Do: Rotate different formulas. Stocking an arsenal of varying products, from aerosol sprays to loose powders, will help you tackle every hair gripe. We love to attack our AM bedhead with Batiste’s super powdery dry shampoo and boost volume with Serge Normant’s thick, texturizing spray right before hitting happy hour. P.S. According to office lore, cofounder Katia uses a different dry shampoo every day to score her signature, bouncy locks.
The formula is:
- long wearing
- sparkling intense color
- ultra fine felt tip
