The first commercially manufactured dry shampoo was launched in the 1940s and advertised mainly to women as an essential “surprise date” product. The style-prolonging aid has now earned a spot in the majority of beauty regimes and it’s almost impossible to imagine a busy morning without using dry shampoo.
How does this time-saver work? Essentially, it’s a powder or fast-drying spray that absorbs excess sebum, oil and dirt from user’s roots, providing a water-free option for cleansing the hair. Some dry shampoos are available in different shades, so the products can be matched to client’s hair colour.
In addition, dry shampoo freshens up the tresses, adding volume and texture. It’s a go-to for hairstylists wanting to add extra volume and body to models’ hair, enabling them to create looks that are more editorial.
