My stylist used dry shampoo for body when I got my hair cut this week.
Does anyone do this? It was surprisingly simple, and I loved how it looked/felt. However, the stuff she used cost $20 for a tiny bottle, and she used it pretty liberally, so I wondered if there were other brands that would work just as well. I think the brand was Kenra.
I have very thin, fine, oil-prone hair.

I have done this! I notice it gives my hair more volume. My favorite brand I have tried so far is Suave Keratin Dry Shampoo. It is like $3.50, smells SUPER good, and works really well (I think). I have never tried the expensive stuff before though.

I use this trick too…. but with that said, ,find a product that disapates in your hair easily or you’ll look like you got into a fight with a bottle of baby powder. It does give your roots a nice lift and a nice fullness without a bunch of extra heat and styling products. It also maintains your style longer because it absorbs any extra oil.
When you say tiny bottle, can you ask her to open it to see how much is in there? I have the same thing but surprisingly a little can go a long way on a more expensive product.

I used baby powder to fluff up my oily hair when I was too lazy to wash it in college. You just have to rub it in really well at the roots, otherwise you look like you’re going grey.

It definitely gives my hair volume! I like this stuff, but does it look sort of white when you spray it on? Dark-haired ladies that is…

I’m interested in people’s replies here too. I use dry shampoo every now and then and honestly, apart from it smelling nice, I’ve never gotten really good results. 🙁

How do you use it to promote volume ?

@QuietOne: I really like the Umberto Beverly Hills dry shampoo at Target. It’s only $7 or so. Works wonders!

i am currently using redken, which works well but is nothing to write home about, but in the past i have used KMS (hair makeover spray) which smells AMAZING and is good on dark hair.

Do you just use it like hairspray? I am unfamiliar with this method. I have fine thin hair as well so I am really interested in this…

for volume when using powder. I recommend osis. I have tried less expensive ones, like the got 2b, and it left a residue, and didnt give the lift I was hoping for.
with dry hair, lift a section of hair paralell to your natural part ( for a lot of volume, part hair from hairline to back of head in one inch sections. for less, begin with one inch width, then one a few inches lower. ) LIGHTLY Sprinkle on roots of hair, then use fingers to massage in and create volume. mimic how you massage hampoo into hair. Start light and use more if needed.
Hope this makes sense and helps.

dry shampoo is a miracle. I absolutely love it! I use the one called Klorane (?) I think. It is pricey, but I use only a little bit of it, around my forehead, where my hair gets the oiliest.
I also tried baby powder on days when I run out of the dry shampoo. I’m not a fan of baby powder, it leaves me looking gray almost, and then my scalp itches!!! Ill stick to the dry shampoo thanks 🙂
