Turn the shower off! No need to wash your hair with this product in your repertoire. Charcoal powder gives this dry shampoo powerful cleansing, and white tea powder soothes your scalp for the perfect pairing. I always have two bottles of this in my bathroom because there's no way I'm running out of this product. When I freshly wash and blow dry my hair, I mist my fringe area, part line, and crown very lightly. Three very tiny sprays absorbed the first sign of oil on my scalp. Every night I lightly respray my roots to ensure I don't wake up with sweaty flat hair. Like any dry shampoo, you want to spray, wait 1-5 minutes, then massage and brush through your hair. This allows the product time to soak up the dirt and oils at your roots and disappear into your hair. The brushing also creates tons of volume, so your hair isn't laying flat on your scalp absorbing your scalp's oil. I always suggest a natural/boar bristle brush for this. Natural bristle brushes pull oils through the hair more than a plastic detangling brush. Adding this step to your routine will change your hair game forever!
