Find out all the reasons why you should use a dry shampoo in the Philippines now!  

The popularity of dry shampoo in the Philippines has skyrocketed in the past years.s. Although Filipinos were a bit behind on the craze; for one, we weren’t sure how to get our hands on it as there weren’t many brands that sell the product locally. Also, it’s could be partly because we like washing our hair every day and second-day hair is an alien concept for most of us. But hey, we caught on, and now we’re loving all these dry shampoo benefits.

Dry shampoo is actually an amazing product and does a lot of magic for your hair; but if you think all it does is suck the grease out of your strands and make you forgive yourself better for not stepping into the shower some mornings, then you’re not taking advantage of its full benefits. Read on and discover the hidden talents, dry shampoo benefits, and different brands of dry shampoo in the Philippines.

If you have greasy hair that tends to look like you can fry an egg on it by noon, this hair care product can quickly freshen up your scalp and strands. It’s a great product to include in your kikay kit because it quickly absorbs extra oil in your tresses in between washes.

Editor’s tip: Freshening up in the middle of the day? Use TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo in the Philippines instantly refreshes and revives your hair without water. Its powder-based formulation absorbs oil and removes dirt, leaving hair clean and full of body even between washes.

A good dry shampoo can easily give your tresses a volume boost. To make this happen, apply the product evenly to dry hair. Massage the product into your scalp to remove excess oil and add body and lift to your roots. Doing so will also help remove the white dry shampoo residue on your hair, so it wouldn’t look like you have dandruff all over your hair. Then, proceed with styling.

3. Keeps bobby pins and hair bands in place

We love hair sprays (they’re one of the best inventions man has made and our hair sends its thanks); but on days when we want to skip the product because we just want something simple or a subtle hold, this holy grail can be a great alternative. It’s great at giving your hair texture and providing grip to your mane. To keep hair accessories from slipping out of your hair when you’re doing an updo, spray the dry shampoo all over your hair before you start styling.

4. Keeps teased strands from collapsing

This must-have hair care product can also help you keep your teased strands from falling flat. To make it work, spray some on the section that you want to tease, then, start backcombing. This will help lock in the tease and give it a better hold.

5. Keeps your bangs from weirdly clumping together on your sweaty or greasy forehead

The forehead sweats more easily when you’re wearing bangs, and sweaty or oily forehead easily ruins the perfect fringe. To keep your bangs from sticking to the oil on your forehead, spray some dry shampoo underneath it.
