Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6:30am
Think you've been using the miracle hair hack right? We hate to tell you, but you probably haven't...
God bless dry shampoo - those miracle sprays have come to the rescue of many hair disasters.
Whether at a festival, in desperate need of some volume or just on a regular morning when you've slept through your alarm, those trusty cans have prevented many bad hair days.
But there is a danger that you've been using it wrong this whole time.
How is that possible? Just grab and spray? Well apparently its not so simple...
Expert from dry shampoo brand Batiste recently revealed the secret to using the magical product properly to Glamour.
Don't just spray it on and leave it as there's a danger of leaving excess product in your hair. Val says: "If you are predominately using dry shampoo for sebum or oily roots rescue, brush it through your hair to remove excess product".
But if you want some extra texture, don't brush it out.
Val says it's like "layering makeup on top of itself day after day without removing it"
It should only be used when it's really needed.
Thus might seem strange but apparently using a hairdryer following dry shampoo application helps remove residue and helps give volume.
To get the most out of your dry shampoo, section the hair and spray the roots between each of those sections to make sure your whole hair is covered, not just the top.
