It’s 7:30 am and you’ve hit the snooze button one too many times. There’s barely enough time to get dressed and dash off to work. You pray to God there’s no traffic. And of course, your head looks like an oil slick. This is when you need dry shampoo for men.
No, it’s not going to turn you into Bradley Cooper with a puff, puff, puff of the aerosol can. But it will help.
How it works:
The alcohol or starch in Dry Shampoo absorbs excess debris, gunk, and grease. All you have to do is a quick brush to remove it, and voila! You've got clean looking hair. And that's all that really matters, right? Appearance? At least no one at work will think you're on some kind of showerless bender.
Dry shampoo is not a substitute for the real thing. And yes, we must clarify. Hygiene is still important for maintaining healthy hair, but sometimes time isn't on our side.
You might also consider throwing a can in your bag or desk for those times when you need to freshen up. It also helps to add volume.
How to Use:
First off, don’t spray on damp hair. It’s called dry shampoo for a reason.
Less is more. Remember, we're trying to de-gunk our hair not add more. Over doing it will cause you to look like you are wearing a powdered wig. That's not good.
Focus on areas that have excess grease. These problem areas are typically around the roots in the forefront of your hair. But everyone's grease is different.
Hold the can about 6 inches away while you spray then give it some time to dry and soak that sh*t up.
After it's had a minute to work, brush it through your hair.
Your hair hopefully looks less tragic. Just don't use it more than two days in a row. After that, please take a shower. For everyone's sake.
What to buy:
We think the best dry shampoo for men is Fresh.Hair by Kevin Murphy. It’s got great stuff like Vitamin C, Grapefruit Extract, Ylang Ylang and some light fragrances to make you smell better. Plus, it looks good and your wife will think there is some hope for you.
