Best Tips and Tricks for Using Powder Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is truly a miracle product: it helps bring life back to dull hair, adds volume and oomph, keeps grease at bay, and can even act as a texturizer. But if the only dry shampoo you’re familiar with is aerosol dry shampoo, you might not be sure how to get the most out of powder dry shampoo. Here are our top tips and tricks for using powder, non-aerosol dry shampoo.

How to Get the Best Results with Dry Shampoo

Use an old makeup brush to apply the powder. Pat lightly when applying, don’t get too aggressive! This is a much more effective way to distribute the dry shampoo rather than using your fingers (not to mention less messy!). Be sure to use a soft bristle brush to avoid any irritation.

Don’t wait until you get oily. Well, you can, but using the dry shampoo proactively will help prevent the buildup of oil on your scalp and eventually help produce less oil over time. In fact, using it right after a fresh wash or blowout will help keep your hair happy over the next few days until your next wash day. Dry shampoo can be the final step in your styling routine!

Don’t overdo it! If you use too much dry shampoo, the powder itself can build up and may cause itchiness. Keep your scalp happy by only applying dry shampoo once or a twice a week and keeping the application light when you do use it.
Use right after a workout. Your scalp produces extra oil during a sweaty workout, so it’s important to keep it feeling fresh to avoid oil accumulation. Combat any unnecessary buildup by applying powder dry shampoo once your scalp has dried off. 

Apply just before bed. Want to wake up feeling refreshed? Applying dry shampoo before bed gives your scalp plenty of time to absorb the powder so that any oiliness disappears and you wake up with new life in your hair. Now that’s a way to wake up on the right side of the bed!

Always have it on hand! Powder dry shampoo is a lifesaver when traveling or camping. You never know when you’ll need it! Thanks to its size and portability, The Earthling Co.’s powder dry shampoo can fit in any carry-on to be used in a pinch. 

Which Dry Shampoo Is Best?

Most important of all: make sure you’re choosing the right product! Plenty of dry shampoos are full of harsh, drying ingredients that can actually leave your scalp oilier and more irritated than before. 
Our powder dry shampoo is full of good-for-you ingredients that nourish your hair instead of stripping it. Rice protein and biotin adds strength and volume to your hair while bamboo stem powder absorbs excess oil and softens your strands. Plus, the gentle, fresh scent from plant oils (no artificial scents here!) add a refreshing smell without a full shower. Our dry shampoo is aerosol-free, plastic-free, and sulfate-free. It’s available in both light and dark formulas and is safe for all hair types.
