Dry shampoo that works for me + mini review

If you have thick, curly/wavy hair like I do, washing your hair everyday is a hassle.  Even though it's actually good for your hair not to be washed everyday, there's the issue of having weighed down and oily second day hair.  Lately I've been using the Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo to freshen up my hair if it starts to look a little oily.  I've had this product for months, but I've just now found the trick to making it work.

When I first tried this dry shampoo I hated it.  I did exactly what the bottle told me to do.  I held it about 8-10 inches away from my head, sprayed the roots, rubbed it in, and brushed it out.  I thought it made my hair look and feel oilier than it already was.  I'm the kind of person who's always running my fingers through my hair and messing around with it during the day, and whenever I felt my roots it felt kind of gross.  For a while after I would use the dry shampoo and end up just putting my hair up in a ponytail or messy bun.  The only thing I liked about it was that it smelled nice...

About a week ago I tried it again, but I did it a little differently.  Instead of spraying it far away, I held the the dry shampoo about 2 inches from my roots and sprayed.  I went underneath different layers of hair around the crown of my head and directly sprayed the roots.  I gave the crown of my head a light spray like you would if you were using hairspray.  I basically used a lot more product than I used to.  Then I let the dry shampoo set for about a minute or two.  I massaged my roots where the dry shampoo was and then I brushed it out.  The results I got through doing this were so much better!  My hair didn't look oily anymore, and I got tons of volume that stayed throughout the day.  You can also use it to add texture and volume to freshly washed hair, and it looks great.  I know some dry shampoos can leave your hair looking a bit gray, especially if you have dark hair, but this dry shampoo doesn't do that.  It's very affordable as well, so if you're on the lookout for a good dry shampoo, it won't hurt to try this one out!
