How to Use Dry Shampoo the Right Way

How to use Dry Shampoo the right way

Dry Shampoo is old news. This beauty product has been around for awhile. It was invented to help us get away with skipping washing our hair for a day or two. Daily wash can strip your hair of its natural oils. And for those who have sensitive, dry, or damaged hair, washing daily is not ideal. That’s why dry shampoo is a great alternative. It helps us get rid of the grease and make our hair smell good. But does it really do what it’s supposed to?
