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.
Dry Shampoo for Darker Strands
If you are really worried about that white residue that many dry shampoo formulas leave, try a product specifically designed for darker hair. We love TdRESemmé Between Washes Brunette Dry Shampoo and Dove Care Between Washes Brunette Dry Shampoo as these are made specifically for darker hair colors.
Rest assured that these dry shampoo options are perfect for black hair!
