Dry shampoo is a must-have for on-the-go ladies around the country. Dry shampoo, a product that helps reduce grease and restore hair to a just-washed look without the process of actually washing the hair, is pretty well understood, but dry conditioner has been popping up more and more frequently.
This product might seem mysterious or even unnecessary, but, we assure you, there is a time and place for dry conditioner. Let's go over the basics.
What Is Dry Conditioner?
Dry conditioner is an aerosol formula that contains moisturizing molecules. The formula for each dry conditioner is different, but they all aim to protect, freshen and liven up lifeless hair between washings. The conditioner you pick will have a specific formula, but we like the Oribe Soft Dry Conditioner Spray.
Dry conditioners can work for a myriad of different hair types, but experts caution curly-haired ladies to opt for a serum. Women with curls are advised not to brush their hair, and dry conditioner really works best when brushed through.
Do I Really Need To Use It?
Dry conditioner is definitely a helpful tool to keep your hair looking fresh and fabulous all day long. Winter conditions can wreak havoc on your hair, and static is no one's best friend. Dry conditioners can help with both of these problems. Use dry conditioner in conjunction with dry shampoo if you are looking to make a hairstyle last between washing.
You might also want to use dry conditioner after the gym, or after coming in from the cold. It can help protect your hair from the harsh conditions it just underwent without much effort. Spraying some on the length of your hair before you hit it with hot, hair tools. It can help prevent breakage and protect your hair from the heat.
What Is The Best Application Of Dry Conditioner?
Dry conditioner should be sprayed on the lengths of your hair, focusing on the ends, from about six to eight inches away. However, if you are using the Dry Texture Spray by Oribe (which is like a dry shampoo), spray it at the base of the scalp. You'll want to hold the bottle upright to ensure an even distribution of product. Distribute the product over the entirety of your hair's length and ends. Once the product has coated your hair, use a soft paddle brush to work the product into your hair. That's all you need to do. There is no further styling required.
