Let’s jump right in.

5 Dry Shampoo Hacks You Need to Try

1. Apply Dry Shampoo on Clean Hair

Have you ever thought about using dry shampoo on clean hair? It’s not just a quick fix for oily hair emergencies – it can actually be a game-changer to help your hair stay fresh and fabulous for longer.

Here’s the trick: after you’ve shampooed and styled your hair, give it a gentle spritz of dry shampoo at the roots. Then, just tousle your hair a bit to let the dry shampoo work its magic.

Say goodbye to daily touch-ups and hello to hassle-free hair days! 

2. Take Advantage of Your Blow Dryer

So, you’ve applied your dry shampoo, let it do its thing for 1 – 3 minutes, and now it’s time to try something different. Using a blow dryer after dry shampoo application can actually help it distribute evenly in the hair.

For this technique, you’ll want to switch your settings to the lowest heat and crank the airspeed to max.

As you work the cold air from your roots to your ends, the air gently ushers away those dry shampoo particles, along with the excess oils they’ve absorbed — leaving your hair looking clean and voluminous, minus any powdery aftermath.

3. Apply Dry Shampoo Before Bed

Imagine waking up to fresh hair that’s anything but– sounds dreamy, right? Well, here’s one of our favorite dry shampoo hacks that might just transform your morning routine. 

If you notice your hair is looking a little greasy, but you don’t have the time or energy to wash it at the moment, you can plan for a dry shampoo day. When you apply dry shampoo the night before instead of the morning of you allow the dry shampoo to slowly absorb excess oils, giving you a refreshed, ready-to-slay-the-day look as soon as you wake up.

Plus, who doesn’t like a shortened morning routine? 

4. Use Dry Shampoo as a Styling Aid

Dry shampoo isn’t just for a quick hair refresh – it can also play a pivotal role in your styling routine. Here are three ways it can transform your look:


Dry shampoo is a fantastic tool to add volume to your hair. A quick application at the roots can create instant lift and texture, giving your hair a fuller and more voluminous appearance.

Substitute for Hairspray:

Swap out your traditional hairspray for dry shampoo to achieve a more natural hold. It can help set your hairstyle while maintaining flexibility and movement. Plus, it won’t be as sticky to the touch.


Dry shampoo is your ticket to achieving effortless, lived-in texture. Whether you’re aiming for beachy waves, messy braids, or a casual updo, a touch of dry shampoo can provide the ideal base for a textured, tousled look that holds throughout the day.

5. Apply Dry Shampoo with Your Hair Brush

This one is a TikTok-approved dry shampoo hack, and it actually makes a lot of sense.  

Grab your go-to dry shampoo (our favorites include the Oribe Gold Lust and the Kerastase Fresh Affair) and give your hairbrush a little spritz with it. Yep, you heard it right – the brush, not your hair. Then, run that brush through your locks. 

Why, you ask? This trick ensures that the dry shampoo spreads evenly from your roots to your tips, giving every strand some refreshment.
