THE DIRTY ABOUT DRY SHAMPOO

April 01, 2021 3 min read

We carry FIVE different dry shampoos - So I am here to give you the dirty and answer all your questions on keeping your hair fresh and clean between washes! 

If you're in the process of stretching the days between washing your hair, dry shampoo is the way to go.​ Not only does it keep your hair fresh, it helps to add volume and texture!

Our Dry Shampoos (in no particular order):
  1. FRESH.HAIR – Kevin Murphy
  2. Perfect hair Day™ – Living Proof
  3. Jet Lag Invisible - IGK
  4. Direct Flight Matcha - IGK
  5. First Class Charcoal - IGK

  • Which is your favourite?
    My personal top pick is the Living Proof Perfect hair Day™ because it actually works – even when I have not washed my hair in… let's just say many days! 

    Living Proof products are backed by science, and this dry shampoo was created with their Triple-Action Cleaning Technology so that it works immediately as well as throughout your day with time-released scent to keep you fresh.

  • What is the difference between these salon-quality dry shampoos and drug store brands?
    ​Because drug store brands are created to be relatively inexpensive, those brands often cut corners by adding chemicals and fillers, which sit on your hair and cause build-up over time. When you use a salon-quality dry shampoo, the ingredients help to actually clean the dirt and build-up off of your hair instead of piling on.
  • When and how much should I use?
    I like to spray some on before I work out at the gym or before I go to sleep so that it can get to work in the meantime! If you will be wearing a hat or toque, spray some dry shampoo in your hair ahead of time to absorb grease while you're wearing it.

    Start with a quick spritz and add more as you feel you need. More doesn't hurt! Another game-changer is the ability to choose which level of cleansing you're needing when you buy!

  • What is meant by level of cleansing?
    IGK's dry shampoos come in three different cleansing strengths - so there is something for everyone!
    If you are looking for a nice gentle refresh, Jet Lag is formulated with volcanic ash and is perfect for light touch-ups - it's invisible!
    The mid-level cleanse, Direct Flight, is made with matcha, turmeric, and charcoal to lift buildup and dirt.
    The deepest cleanse will come from First Class, which detoxes hair with charcoal and soothes the scalp with white tea powder.

  • Which dry shampoo is curly girl approved?
    Our resident curly specialist, Tyler, says that FRESH.HAIR is definitely his pick for curly hair, because it is essentially ANGEL.WASH in powder form. It was originally designed for backpackers to be able to spray on and wipe off with a wet towel!

  • Which dry shampoo is best for dark hair/doesn’t leave white residue?
    I personally don't find the Perfect hair Day dry shampoo leaves any residue in my hair, but some of the other brunettes in our salon prefer Kevin Murphy's FRESH.HAIR. The cake-like scent of FRESH.HAIR is super popular, but if you're looking for a more gender-neutral option, Jet Lag Invisible by IGK is a great universal choice!

  • Which dry shampoo is best for men?
    Honestly, all of the dry shampoos smell amazing and the scents are very gender-neutral, especially with the IGK line!

Until next time!
