It’s safe to say most of us can’t live without the holy grail hair care product that is dry shampoo. And when paired with dry conditioner it can work wonders to give you gorgeous hair when you’re between washes. If you’re scratching your head at the idea of dry conditioner, don’t worry—we understand. It’s a lesser known dry hair product, but certainly worthy of being added to your beauty toolkit. So keep reading to get the 4-1-1 on why dry conditioner is an absolute must-have for your hair.
You know that dry shampoo is used to absorb excess oils from your mane and refresh your strands between shampoo sessions and wash days, but what about dry conditioner? Well, think of dry shampoo and dry conditioner as partners in crime. When you don’t have time to wash your hair, dry shampoo can be used to refresh oily roots, while dry conditioner can be used to hydrate dry ends. Typically, dry conditioner contains oils and comes in an aerosol format. While formulas can vary, the benefits of dry conditioner usually include adding shine, boosting moisture, taming frizz, and managing static and flyaways. It’s a great temporary alternative to leave-in conditioner that doesn’t have to be applied to freshly washed hair.
Now that you know why adding a dry conditioner to your stash of hair necessities is non-negotiable, you’re likely wondering how to use one. It’s quite simple—just follow the steps below.
Before reaching for your dry conditioner, prep your strands by combing or brushing out any knots or tangles. This will also be your cue to spritz your roots with a dry shampoo like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Air Volume Dry Shampoo if they’re in need of a refresh.
Grab your dry conditioner and spray it from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair—wherever you feel your strands are on the dry side.
Reach for your brush or comb once more to evenly distribute the product through your mane. That’s it—as easy as 1-2-3!
While dry conditioner is a great, last-minute option for hydrating dry ends, it isn’t the only product out there that you can use to show your strands some love. Remember, leave-in conditioners like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream Leave In Conditioner are key in keeping your hair healthy as they provide extra moisture and long lasting nourishment. Hair serums can also work to hydrate, smooth, and soften strands while managing frizz and static. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum Leave-In to get the job done. And finally, hair treatments offer an array of benefits, depending on which one you use. Look for one that’s specifically formulated to provide nourishment to dry hair, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment.
