How to Get Clean Hair Without Using Shampoo

Washing your hair is an integral part of many of our hair care routines. But this simple act can use over 10 gallons of water — each time. Not to mention, washing your hair with traditional shampoos too often can strip your locks of its natural oils.  

The good news: there’s an easy way to wash your hair without the need for liquid shampoo or water. And it will even SAVE you time. 

Yes, we’re talking about dry shampoo. While it’s been around for over 100 years, formulas have changed significantly since their beginnings. No need for chalky-white roots or weighed-down hair anymore.  

What is Dry Shampoo?   

Dry shampoo should be part of your beauty toolkit for many reasons: it is convenient and helps soak up excess oil on your scalp effortlessly, it adds volume to hair that hasn’t been washed in a few days and can extend your blowout – saving you money.  

Nowadays, there are countless varieties of dry shampoo perfect for every kind of hair texture.  

For fine or oily hair

How to Wash Hair Without Shampoo?    

After you’ve selected your perfect dry shampoo, you need to apply it correctly. Make the most of your product with these steps: 

Step #1: Prep Your Hair 

Part your hair into sections so that the product can reach your roots effectively.  

Step #2: Shake  

It’s time to shake it up. Give your dry shampoo a good shake to ensure that the product’s formula is evenly distributed inside of the bottle.  

Step #3: Spray 

Hold your dry shampoo a few inches away from your roots. Begin to spray until all sections of your scalp are lightly covered, from your crown to the nape of your neck.  

Step #4: Rub it In 

With your fingertips or a brush, massage the product into your roots. For extra volume, try flipping your head upside down while you continue to massage through hair. 

Step #5: Style & Go  

Take a second to shake out your hair and style as you usually do.  

There you have it. Washing your hair with dry shampoo is easy and saves time (and water). With dry shampoo, your best hair days can start outside of the shower.
