We’ve heard of dry shampoos, but what exactly are dry conditioners? We’ve done some research to find out!

What Does it Do and Who Should Use It?

Dry conditioner is designed to provide hydration and shine while separating the strands and reviving the hair. They are typically aerosols and contain nourishing oils, which also add texture to dry hair without the need for wetting or washing it. Dry conditioners are ideal for anyone with medium-thick hair that required a freshen up between washing and can go 2-3 days without washing their hair.

How is Dry Conditioner Different to Dry Shampoo? 

Dry shampoo is great if you suffer from oily hair and need a quick fix or freshen up in between washing. Dry conditioner is much more moisturizing than dry shampoo as dry shampoo can often dry out the hair. The dry conditioner works to bring back moisture similar to how traditional shampoos and conditioners balance one another out and work together to achieve clean and moisturized locks.

How Do You Use a Dry Conditioner? 

As a dry shampoo focuses on absorbing oil from the scalp and root area, dry conditioner helps to restyle the hair and eliminate static and flyaways. To achieve this, apply dry conditioner on the mid-length and ends of your hair and flip your hair upside down, then mist the dry conditioning spray through your hair. You can also try adding a little heat from your hairdryer to add texture and evenly distribute the conditioner.
