Master the art of dry sham­poo

DONE RIGHT, THIS SE­CRET WEAPON WILL BUY YOU

TIME ( AND HAVE YOUR HAIR LOOK­ING FAB).

An easy mis­take: end­ing up with a cloud of pow­der on top of your head. Pre­vent this by grab­bing four­inch sec­tions of hair, start­ing just above your ear. Hold the can eight inches away and spritz your scalp. (We used Or­lando Pita Play In­stant Boost in Dark Tone, $22; or­lan­do­pita play.com). Repeat un­til you reach your other ear.

Here’s where a lit­tle el­bow grease comes in. For the pow­ders to work their magic and ab­sorb dirt and oil, you have to thor­oughly mas­sage the dry sham­poo into your roots and scalp. Spread your fin­gers and, us­ing your fin­ger­tips, rub your crown. It will feel nice and dis­trib­ute the for­mula; plus, it’ll give se­cond-day hair some lift.

Hold­ing a boar­bris­tle brush, like Harry Josh Pro Tools Pre­mium Oval Brush ($50; derm store.com), un­der­neath your hair, comb from roots to ends to blend any residue while pre­serv­ing vol­ume. Brush the top of your hair to tame fly­aways. P.S.

While these steps will help you skip sham­poos, wash­ing is key for healthy strands.
