Dry Shampoo: Hair Care Tips When you're On-The-Go

Dry Shampoo: Hair Care Tips When you're On-The-Go

We’ve all been there: you’ve been travelling for days, you’re exhausted, and you’ve barely had time to hop in the shower, let alone run a comb through your hair. Fear not, busy bees! Our arsenal of travel-friendly products are just the ticket to have you feeling pampered and looking polished while on-the-go.

What is dry shampoo? How does dry shampoo work?

Did you know? Washing your hair more than twice a week can actually strip the natural oils from your scalp, making your hair dry and dull. So skipping the shower on occasion isn’t such a bad thing for your hair care routine – in fact, you should thank your busy schedule for helping out your limp locks! To give hair a boost without suds (without detergent), turn to dry shampoo instead. First time user? Here’s how to use dry shampoo for the best results:

1) Use dry shampoo between hair washes, or apply them on flat hair

Looking to cleanse hair between washes? A simple spritz of dry shampoo is proven to soak up excess grease in hair for a just-washed look. Looking to add more volume to lifeless hair? Dry shampoo to the rescue! Add a quick spray on dull, lifeless hair before leaving the house and pump up the volume.

2) Spray dry shampoo exactly as you would hairspray

Just like you would hairspray, it’s important to remember to hold your dry shampoo bottle at least a hand’s width away from your hair so you don’t overpower it with product. After spraying, gently work the dry shampoo through your hair – making sure to check for excess product – before brushing or combing it out thoroughly.

3) Easy hair styling after dry shampoo

After applying, feel free to straighten or curl your hair as you normally would after a shower and blow-dry – your dry shampoo’s holding effect will actually make your job a lot easier!

4 Quick tips for maintaining the perfect hair when travelling

1) Care for your hair on the plane

Before leaving for a long flight, make sure your hair is well conditioned in advance. Be sure to keep hair out of your face to avoid excess grease – think bun or braid! Dry shampoo and a wooden brush to combat grease and frizz are also essential carry-on items to keep you feeling fresh on board.

2) Don’t rely on hotel shampoo and conditioner

Don’t rely on your hotel for quality hair care products! Pack your own to avoid unnecessary chemicals on your tresses. We recommend Garnier’s Fructis Sleek & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner in travel size, so you won’t have to worry about excess weight in your luggage.

3) Prevent frizzy hair

To combat frizz on the road, turn to hydrating shampoos, conditioners, frizz control sprays and serums. For a quick fix, we recommend Garnier’s Fructis Style Frizz Guard Anti-Frizz Dry Spray. The lightweight, paraben-free formula zaps away frizz, static and flyaway immediately – anytime, anywhere. Pack a bottle in your purse to keep you prepared on the go!

4) Hold your hair in place

Windblown hair got you down? We recommend Garnier’s Fructis Style Hold & Flex Ultimate Control Travel Spray. The long-lasting formula with ultra-strong hold will keep locks in place – all day, every day.
