Using Dry Shampoo

It is a wonderful solution for people who are used to washing their hair every day (and are resistant to the notion that extensions should only be washed two to three times a week).

Powder shampoos should be applied near the roots and spread through the hair with fingers. For spray-in products, hold the bottle about six inches from your head then spray at the roots. Then distribute the product with a gentle comb or brush designed for hair extensions.

How Often Should You Use it?

Although dry shampoo allows you to protect your extensions by shampooing less often, it shouldn’t be used as an everyday solution; it is meant to give your extensions a break between washes. You should use a professional shampoo for hair extensions the day after using it to thoroughly remove product residue and buildup of skin flakes.

Tips for Using Dry Shampoo

To get the most out of your dry shampoo for extensions and avoid the dangers of misuse, be sure to follow these tips:

  • Take care to apply the product near the roots. This allows the shampoo to combine with the natural oil produced by the scalp for better absorption.
  • Wait a full two to five minutes before styling your hair after applying it so that it has time to absorb into the hair.
  • Apply a lightweight serum to help quicken the absorption process if a residue appears after massaging the dry shampoo powder.
  • Comb through your hair extensions with a fine tooth brush made with tourmaline bristles for a minimum of two minutes to work the shampoo into your scalp.
  • Freshen up your hair by adding a few drops of scented oil into your hair after you’ve combed it through.
  • Use a professional dry shampoo spray-in product or mousse for easier application.

Now that you know the basics of dry shampoo for hair extensions, you’ll be able to keep your hair looking healthy and radiant and avoid damage from over-shampooing.
