What are some tips on how to use dry shampoo to achieve optimal results? And how do you make dry shampoo work the best for your hair? Let us share all of our dry shampoo secrets.
What is dry shampoo?
Dry shampoo is a hair product that is used to clean hair without the need for water. It typically comes in the form of a spray, like SOPHIA MAE’s Majestic Mist, or powder that is applied directly to the roots of the hair. Dry shampoo works by absorbing excess oil and impurities from the scalp, leaving your hair looking and feeling refreshed in between washes.
Where to apply dry shampoo?
When applying dry shampoo, it is essential to know where to spray it. To achieve a fresh-looking, voluminous result, shake your bottle of dry shampoo well and start by dividing your hair into sections. Spray the dry shampoo onto the roots of each section from 25-30 cm away. Use your fingers to massage the dry shampoo into your scalp, distributing it evenly and comb through your hair using a brush to prevent a white haze, this step is essential for those with dark hair. Next, style your hair into your desired look and enjoy the look and feel of a salon-worthy hairstyle for days.

When to apply dry shampoo?
In times when we are constantly running from one appointment to another, nobody has time to wash their hair every single day and we definitely don’t have time to worry about our hair being flat and oily all day long. To ensure a fresh and volumized look that will last all day, it’s recommended to apply your dry shampoo before bed to allow the product to soak up all the excess oils on your scalp while you sleep. When you wake up the next morning, you can touch up your locks by using a few extra sprays if you like, but that won’t always be necessary as the dry shampoo has already done its work by absorbing all impurities during the night. In addition, if you desire a little more volume throughout the day, you can always touch up your locks using a few sprays of a travel-sized dry shampoo, like SOPHIA MAE’s Majestic Mist Mini. Can’t decide which size of the Majestic Mist you need? The Majestic Bundle is the way to go, containing both our full-sized Majestic Mist (300ml) and the Majestic Mist Mini (100ml).
How often should you use dry shampoo?
The frequency with which you should use dry shampoo depends on your hair type, texture, and lifestyle. If you have oily hair, you may need to use dry shampoo more frequently than someone with dry hair. As a general rule, it is best to use dry shampoo no more than two days in a row and no more than twice a week, as overuse can lead to product buildup and scalp irritation, meaning sometimes it’s best to give your Majestic Mist a little break.
Dry shampoo vs. washing hair
Dry shampoo is a convenient way to freshen up your hair without washing it, but it is not a replacement for regular hair washing. While it’s recommended to use dry shampoo only once or twice a week to prevent buildup and clogged pores, using a dry shampoo in between washes is a great way to ensure freshness, amazing texture and volume without the hassle of having to wash, dry and style your hair on a daily basis. This saves time and effort, making the use of dry shampoo ideal for busy mornings or when you don't have access to a shower. When used correctly and according to the instructions provided to you on the packaging, dry shampoo will not damage your hair.
Can dry shampoo be used on wet hair?
Dry shampoo is typically used on dry hair, but some people may wonder if it can be used on wet hair. The answer is no, you should not use dry shampoo on wet hair. Applying dry shampoo on wet hair can cause clumping and uneven distribution, making your hair look greasy and dull, which is the opposite effect of what you want to achieve by using a dry shampoo. Always make sure your hair is completely dry before applying dry shampoo and you are good to go.
Dry shampoo vs. hair spray vs. thickening spray
While dry shampoo, hair spray, and thickening spray all serve different purposes, they are often confused with one another. Hair spray is typically used to hold your hair in place, while thickening spray is used to add volume and texture to hair. Dry shampoo is used to refresh hair in between washes but in addition, SOPHIA MAE’s Majestic Mist can also be used to add volume and texture to your locks for your desired look.
Can dry shampoo damage your hair?
Dry shampoo is generally safe to use and when used correctly, does not cause damage to your hair. However, overuse of dry shampoo can lead to product buildup on the scalp, which can cause irritation and even hair loss. It is important to use a dry shampoo like the Majestic Mist in moderation and to make sure to thoroughly wash hair after one or two uses.
Which dry shampoo is best for dark hair?
One concern that many people with dark hair have about using dry shampoo is that it can leave a white residue. The Majestic Mist is here to help. Simply shake the bottle thoroughly, spray your roots from 25-30 cm away and comb through well to prevent a white haze.
Does dry shampoo work on curly hair?
Dry shampoo can be used on all hair types, including curly hair. However, it is important to be careful when applying dry shampoo to curly hair, as it can be more difficult to distribute the product evenly. To avoid clumping, apply dry shampoo to the roots of the hair and use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to distribute the product evenly. It is advised not to use dry shampoo on type 4 curls.
Is it possible to style your hair after using dry shampoo?
After using dry shampoo, you may want to style your hair using tools such as a curling iron or straightener. It is important to make sure that your hair is completely dry before using heat styling tools, as wet or damp hair can be damaged by high heat. It is also advised to use a heat protectant spray in addition to a dry shampoo like the Majestic Mist to prevent damage to your hair.
