Picture this: You’ve managed to wake up early enough to style your hair. Unfortunately, the result is flat, lifeless, and not at all like the hair volume you had pictured.

Dry shampoo is your friend! Not only will it absorb the excess oils in your hair, giving you a fresh look, it will also give your hair volume!

When you think about the best products for hair volume, your mind might not immediately jump to dry shampoo as an option, but it should. Volumizing dry shampoo spray is one of the best products to get your hair looking voluminous and full of life.

Dry shampoo is a product available as an aerosol spray or in powder form that will get your hair looking clean and refreshed without the damage and worry of daily frequent washes.

While I wouldn’t recommend using dry shampoo every day in place of conventional washes, when you want to extend the life of a beautiful style or boost your hair volume between washes, dry shampoo is the best product to turn to.

Dry Shampoo Spray: How to Achieve Perfect Hair Volume

If your hair is particularly thin or fine, dry shampoo will come to your rescue every time, giving your fine hair the volume and life you desire. It’s important to understand the proper way to use dry shampoo spray in order to get the best results and the freshest, voluminous hair.

When using the spray, make sure to keep the bottle at least six inches away from your hair and go easy on the application to avoid too much product buildup.

  • Spray the product at your roots as well as underneath pieces of your top layer of hair.     
  • Brush through the dry shampoo to evenly distribute it and really unlock its volumizing potential.
  • Flip your head upside down and spray a bit of product on the underside of your hair. When you flip back up, your hair will be full of liveliness and bounciness!
  • Now it’s time to decide what style you want to go for today!. Along with refreshing and volumizing, dry shampoo will also help lock in your style for all-day beauty.

Additionally, blow drying your hair upside down will create more lift and volume, and adding barrel curls will liven up your look.

Dry Shampoo Powder: How to Achieve Perfect Hair Volume

Where dry shampoo spray offers quick and easy application, dry shampoo powder gives you more control. Use these tips to get great hair volume using dry shampoo powder!

Dry shampoo powder can be a bit messy, so I would recommend using it in the bathroom over the sink for easy cleanup and avoid wearing black clothes.

  • With clean hands, take a bit of powder into your palms and rub it evenly throughout the body of your hair.
  • Section off pieces of your hair and apply a small amount of the product underneath the pieces from their roots to their ends.
  • Although dry shampoo is dry, take the know-how you already have about conventional shampoos and massage the volumizing dry shampoo powder into your head where you’ve applied it.
  • For the best volume, let the product sit for about 30 seconds before you shake it out.

If you do get a bit of product on your clothes, blow it or shake it off so that it doesn’t smear. You can remove any marks with a wet cloth, so don’t panic!

Benefits of Giving Your Hair Volume with Dry Shampoo

The reputation of dry shampoo as a must have for soaking up excess oils and avoiding hair damage from too many frequent washes is well established. But, when you’re looking for a way to volumize your clean hair, dry shampoo will still have your back.

Your Hair Will Look Thicker and Fuller

Dry shampoo is light and won’t weigh down your style so it is a perfect product to add texture, giving it the look of thick, full hair!

You Can Use It on Wet Hair

Obviously, if your hair is still wet from being washed, you shouldn’t have issues with excess oils. But applying volumizing dry shampoo to damp hair will thicken up your strands. Following up with a blow dryer will thicken hair up even more!

Your Hair Will Have Volume All Day

A popular way of adding volume to hair is by teasing it or backcombing it. Dry shampoo can help keep this volume going all day long – just spray a bit on the roots of teased hair and it won’t deflate!

Your Style Will Last Longer

Adding a bit of dry shampoo to your hair before and after styling it can help lock in the style for a lasting effect. Since dry shampoo is much lighter than typical hairsprays, it can give a more natural, voluminous look to your style.

You Owe it to Yourself to Give Dry Shampoo a Shot

Dry shampoo can do much more for your hair than keep it looking fresh and free of oils. Between its ease of use and lightweight formula, dry shampoo can be one of the best hair volumizing products for you!

When you’ve accidentally hit the snooze button a few too many times, it can help you out by ensuring your hair looks fresh even if you don’t have time to wash it. No one wants to sacrifice a beautiful blowout after leaving the salon! Dry shampoo can give your hair volume and revive a style so your salon blowout will last an extra day.

Everyone’s hair is different, and whether you’ve got thick, oily hair or thin hair that doesn’t want to hold a style, dry shampoo can help you out in a pinch.

Flat, lifeless hair is no fun, and neither is stressing out about spending hundreds of dollars on all kinds of different products designed for hair volume. The solution is simple – turn to your trusty dry shampoo and chances are, it can help you out with whatever hair emergency you’re facing.
