It’s hot, sweaty and pretty much unbearable during the summer months here in Vegas and I certainly don’t want to wash my hair every morning, or even every other morning.
With my busy schedule plus the added Mad Max-esc unbearable heat, by Friday I’m pretty much running on 50% Dry Shampoo and 50% Coffee.
Blowing out my hair is a sweat filled process full of sectioning, blow-drying, heating and styling that I would equate to a 30 minute work-out at the gym- which is why I was obviously thrilled when I became familiar with the hair refreshing nirvana that is Dry Shampoo.
For those of you that have yet to make this life changing discovery, dry shampoo is a spray sent straight from the heavens to restore volume, texture and soak up excess oil from second, third, fourth, (cough, fifth, ahem, cough) day hair, all without water.
I use Dry Shampoo only slightly less than oxygen and my holy grail of Dry Shampoo is Cibu Ka Pow Dry Shampoo.
Ka Pow is so amazing it pretty much B%^#@ slapped all the other dry shampoos out of my medicine cabinet.
This spray will extend the life of your blowout, absorbs oils and is perfect for creating that tossled beachy texture. The best thing about Ka Pow is that it works on various hair types and human hair extensions!
Last week I watched a model spray dry shampoo all over the top of her head, like hairspray. My inner beauty blogger voice was screaming “You are using that WRONG”! but my outer stylist voice stayed quiet.
Alot of people fall into this beauty-gone-wrong trap with products they hear a buzz about and purchase without knowing how to use them properly.
So I, being a dry shampoo aficionado am going to break it down for you. Step by step how to get the most out of your Dry Shampoo.
Tips for Applying Dry Shampoo:
- Start with dry, dirty hair. NEVER use Dry Shampoo on wet hair.
- You want to hold the nozzle around six to eight inches away from the hair and don’t focus on one area for too long, to avoid product build-up.
- Separate your hair into sections and apply throughout your locks at the roots…. only the roots. Focus on the crown of your head.
- Once you’ve evenly sprayed the dry shampoo into the hair, massage it into your scalp like you would wet shampoo in the shower – making sure it’s all rubbed in and evenly distributed.
- For added volume, flip your hair upside down, then use your fingers to blend the powder, shake out your roots, and allow the dry shampoo to move towards your ends.
Follow these steps and your Dry Shampoo will give you great hair for days…and days…and days.. and then maybe one more day. LOL
Cibu Ka Pow Dry Shampoo is available at cibuforhair.com and select hair salons.

I need to give this a whirl. By the way your website looks amazing!! Love the hair tips!
I need to try this! Now that baby is here, I won’t have time to wash my hair! ????
I have the frizziest hair ever so I cant wash it every day! I have been skeptical at the thought of using dry shampoo because i thought it would make it greasy! btw, your adorable and i love your hair!
Awe thank you! Dry Shampoo will do the opposite. It absorbs the oil so it takes the greasiness out!
The packaging alone convinced me that it’s worth trying.
So cute right!
I love dry shampoo! But I haven’t tried this brand! I’ll have to try it, thanks for the tips1
It’s a great product at a price point you can’t beat!
Love this! I only wash my hair once a week, and dry shampoo always gets me through. You’re so right about the added volume effect. Way healthier than restyling <3
Wow, I’ve been doing dry shampoo all wrong. I never knew you need to massage it in. Never would have thought of it. Great tips. This is probably why I never liked using it. Will give it another try.
The steps make a huge difference in the performance!
I’ve never tried dried shampoo, so these are instructions are great! Also, love the name of the product! 😉
You will love it! Life changing!
Dry shampoo is one of those concepts that fascinate me. I have yet to try it, but it seems like such a convenient option. Honestly, I wasn’t quite sure what the application process entailed, but now I do! I may have to think about trying it out during my next long trip!
Try out a travel size to see how you like it!
I am always looking for a new dry shampoo. Some don’t work for me that well, it might just be me but I am always looking for a way that I don’t have to shampoo my hair that often.
Make sure to follow the steps and you’ll see a big difference in the performance of your Dry Shampoo!
Thanks for sharing this type of dry shampoo! I LOVE dry shampoo but haven’t tried this one yet. It sounds awesome.

I can’t live without dry shampoo! I’ve tried some expensive ones but they didn’t work too well so I’ve generally stuck with Batiste. I’ll pick up a bottle of this one to try it! xx
It’s fantastic and one can lasts forever!
The dry shampoo is a life saver!
