With Malaysia's hot and humid weather, it can be so uncomfortable to go days without washing your hair
It's just that sometimes, we're so caught up in the daily rush of things, and we might have had cheat days where we forgot to wash our hair after a long day of work.
But, all that perspiration and oil buildup in your hair just makes you feel all icky and uncomfortable. And that's why dry shampoo is an absolute life-saver!
So, what is dry shampoo?
If you’ve never heard of this magical thing in a bottle, dry shampoo helps absorb the excess oil without the need of a traditional shampoo in-between washes. It instantly refreshes your limp and greasy-looking mane while making your hair smell nice.
However, dry shampoo is not a substitute for hair washing!
Dry shampoos only absorb the oil and sweat from our hair, but it doesn't clean our hair the way a shampoo can. Using a dry shampoo can extend the number of days you go without a hair wash, so that your hair feels fresh for longer.
"Wah, so I can sleep longer in the mornings since I don't have to wash my hair every day when I wake up!"
That sounds about right!
But, there are so many choices in the market, so how do you choose the right dry shampoo for your hair concerns?
