Dry Shampoo – a Game Changer for Colored Hair

Is your colored hair presently screaming for attention? If so, today’s post will transform your hair with this game-changing solution, dry shampoo! Be a winner in the MANE event with these simple but sensational suggestions!

A Dry Run Win: Give your colored hair a dry run win! One of the main causes of color fading is frequent hair washing. As you know, the color washes out a bit with every shampooing. To preserve your color vibrancy much longer, try to go longer between washings and also try dry shampoo, too!

Pump Up the Volume: Why try dry shampoo? Well, for some people, it can be hard to skip a day without washing their hair. Baby fine hair may get greasy the second day after washing. For such hair types, dry shampoo can be a godsend. Not only does this product do a great job of soaking up excess oil, but it further adds texture to fine hair and makes it look fuller. Pump up the volume today, the dry shampoo way!

Don’t Fret the Sweat: Another factor that requires frequent hair washing is sweating. If you go to the gym or “shake it until you make it” at home with a Zumbo video, your hair may lose its “freshness” and smell badly after high-intensity exercise. However, don’t fret about the sweat any longer since dry shampoo absorbs sweat and eliminates unwanted, gross odors from your hair. Keep this amazing confidence booster in your purse, gym bag, or briefcase and savor that “freshly washed” look and smell in a matter of seconds.

More Bang for Your Bucks: If you wear bangs, they typically get greasy quickly since they continuously touch your forehead. Let dry shampoo give you more BANGS for your bucks literally and figuratively. A few puffs of this miracle product will soak up the oil and make your bangs look adorable, youthful, and sassy!

Clock Talk: Any win in life is a race against the clock, right? Well, allow dry shampoo to be your amazing time-saver. It’s a lifesaver for emergencies when you don’t have time to shampoo and style your hair. If you’re in quarantine for 15, let dry shampoo rescue your locks, time, and sanity!

Dry, Don’t Cry: Why Use Dry Shampoos on Color-Treated Hair:

In addition to the reasons above, finding a good dry shampoo is a necessity for color-treated hair. This product will allow you to go longer between shampooing, preserve the freshness of your hair color, keep hair clean between washes, and add a little oomph to flat greasy hair. It’s time to dry (shampoo), not cry, folks!

Yet not all dry shampoos are formulated the same way. Some inexpensive store brands can contain aluminum, sulfates, parabens, and other chemicals that aren’t health/color friendly. Synthetic, irritating fragrances in aerosol formulas can harass your scalp, while some types of alcohol can dry out your hair. Such cheap dry shampoos can leave your hair looking chalky and dull, so check yourself before you wreck yourself-and your hair color!

Free and Fab: Color-friendly dry shampoos are not only safe for color-treated hair, but they also contain natural ingredients to nourish chemically treated hair. Such color-friendly ingredients deliver antioxidants that prevent free radical damage, moisturizers that soften over-processed strands, and UV filters that neutralize the color fading effects from sun rays. Besides, being color friendly, natural-based dry shampoos have a positive impact on your scalp health. Be free and fab!

Here’s a list of hand-picked dry shampoos that are gentle for your dye job and deserve a spot in your bathroom cabinet.

    I recently purchased a bottle of OGX Ever Straightening + Brazilian Keratin Therapy Shampoo, is the shampoo the regular one? OR do I repeat the process over, not put my hair up in a ponytail. The bottle does not say much.
