Dry Shampoo for Black Hair
In our extensive experimenting with most of the dry shampoos on the market, we’ve found that the key is to choose a dependable dry shampoo and to learn how to use it correctly. That’s why we’re suggesting using Dove Refresh+Care Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo on your hair. This dry shampoo refreshes and revives your oily hair in between showers, delivering refreshed and fresh-smelling strands every single time. When used correctly this dry shampoo leaves no visible residue.
Spray the dry shampoo at your roots while holding the bottle 8 to 12 inches away from your head. If you’re noticing white residue then you’re probably holding it too close. You want to evenly distribute the product as you apply it to avoid any build-up. Once you’ve covered up all of your roots, massage the product into your scalp.
