Home Hair Tips How-To Banish Oily Roots Using Dry Shampoo

Everyone can use dry shampoo, but it’s particularly a hero product for those with oily roots. Prose’s custom dry shampoo uses ingredients like tapioca starch, kaolin clay, witch hazel and rice starch to sop up the excess oil that can burden strands. Pick up a few different techniques to give your hair the refresh it deserves, below.

1. Start by brushing your hair to distribute the natural oils evenly

2. Part your hair as needed

3. Hold bottle 6 to 8 inches away from hair

4. Press lightly to spray dry shampoo

5. Watch as the powder cloud distributes dry shampoo evenly for all over volume

6. For more targeted cleansing, pump dry shampoo into your hands and apply directly to roots

7. Wait 30 seconds for powder to absorb

8. Massage to help oil fully absorb and add a boost of volume and lift at the same time

9. Add dry shampoo to your brush for finishing touches

10. Go about your day with refreshed roots and happy hair!

  1. Never thought I would ever like any dry shampoo before in my life. First of all, I have dark hair. There are only a few dry shampoo I can use that won’t show up as white flakes on my scalp and in my hair. The ones I have tried would either leave my scalp itchy or leave somewhat of a sticky hairspray-liked residue. But this actually works. It also smells amazing. I have gotten compliments many times about my hair smelling good even though I haven’t washed my hair in a few days after using this. And a little bit goes a very long way with this.
