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. 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 everyday and second day hair is an alien concept for most of us. But hey, we caught on, and now we can’t stop talking about it either!

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 and different brands of dry shampoo in the Philippines.

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. Proceed with styling.

TONI&GUY Sky High Volume Dry Shampoo

Editor’s tip: If you have thin hair, use TONI&GUY Sky High Volume Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo in the Philippines is specifically formulated to help boost volume from root to tip for all-over dramatic body.

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 with a subtle hold, a dry shampoo 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.

TONI&GUY Matte Texture Dry Shampoo

Editor’s tip: We love a dry shampoo with a matte finish like TONI&GUY Matt Texture Dry Shampoo. This product provides instant root refresh and matt texture, extends your hairstyle a bit longer, and keep your bobby pins and bands where you want them⁠—a must-have dry shampoo in the Philippines!

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

If you have oily hair, dry shampoo is your best friend.

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

Editor’s Tip: Since most dry shampoo in the Philippines are starch-based, always shake out any excess product from your hair to prevent looking like you have dandruff all over your hair. Dry shampoo leaves a white residue on hair when first applied, which is more obvious on Asian hair. So massage the product into your scalp to fully absorb excess oil and remove the white residue left on your hair.
