Hair Hacks! 6 New and Different Ways to use Dry Shampoo with Sam Villa

Thursday, 30 August 2018 20:39

Dry shampoo is one of the hottest products on the market because it’s a time saver! It quickly restores freshness to hair without having to shampoo. But, it’s not a new phenomenon, throughout history powdered clay and milled starch were used to refresh, color & deodorize both hair and wigs. 

Now, dry shampoo is used for anything from freshening up day old hair to adding texture, volume, grip and finish. Sam Villa, co-founder of Sam Villa and Global Artistic Ambassador for Redken, shares some unique uses.

It’s important to know the basics before getting creative,” says Villa. Dry shampoo is designed to absorb excess oil, control odor and manage static. For spray versions such as Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo, follow these steps.

– Section hair vertically and spray evenly on only the roots, holding the can about 6” away to ensure even saturation.
– Let product sit for a couple minutes to absorb oil and then brush out.
– A blow dryer can also be used to further dispense product and build even more texture.

Now get creative…

1. Create serious volume and texture by spraying on clean/freshly washed hair at the root and midway down the hair strand to create a bed head finish… or wake up with bed head, spray roots with dry shampoo and blow dry for a more controlled finish.
2. Use before creating an updo so hair has heft and grip to stay up. And spray on bobby pins to add more hold.
3. Spray on hair before braiding, knotting, twisting and tying to add bulk and keep in place.
4. Spray on hands and work through layers to add piecy separation – great on shags!
5. Plump up bangs by working through to give more life.
6. Spray on hair in colder weather to decrease static and fix hat head!
