Having your hair dyed can be one of the things that most excites you. But the confusions associated with it are enough to kill the excitement. That’s why you should gather enough information about it before going through a hair dye process.
A common confusion about getting your hair dyed is about dry shampoo. Many people use dry shampoo on hair and that’s why the confusion arises.
I know you’re in a similar situation and looking for a perfect answer. Don’t worry more. I’m here to clear all your confusion and tell you what to do.
So, let’s not waste time anymore and jump to the exact point.
What is dry shampoo?
Before going to discuss further, let’s talk a bit about dry shampoo.
Dry shampoo is a spray-type product designed for oily scalp and hair. When you spray it on your hair, it coats your hair with a thin layer of alcohol or powder. The layer absorbs the excess oil and helps your hair to stay clean and look fresh.
One issue with dry shampoo is it also absorbs the natural oil of your hair and leaves it dry. However, this is not the topic today.
The thing you have to focus on today is dry shampoo works by creating a thin coat on your hair.
Can you dye hair with dry shampoo in it?
Dry shampoo doesn’t have any deal with hair dye. So, if you apply dry shampoo to your dyed hair, you won’t face any issues.
However, problem happens when you dye your hair that already has dry shampoo in it.
I guess you’ve already understood the reason. Yes, the coat is the reason.
When you apply dye to your hair with dry shampoo, the coat doesn’t allow it to interact with your hair properly. Thus, it can’t create the bond needed to stay on your hair.
As a result of it, you may not get the expected color from the dye. Besides, it doesn’t stay long on your hair and fades away quickly.
If your dry shampoo comes with wax, the issue becomes more significant. Wax has a direct negative impact on the working process of hair dye. It blocks the dye to penetrate the hair strands.
If the dry shampoo has tint or color in it, the same thing happens. And you may end up with uneven dye that fades away quickly.
So, the answer to your query is not positive. You can’t dye your hair if it has dry shampoo sprayed.
What to Do?
You need to get rid of dry shampoo before dying. So, wash off any residue of it from your hair.
I suggest staying away from using dry shampoo for at least 24-48 hours before you apply dye to your hair. Doing this allows your hair to develop protection of natural oil that saves your hair strands and scalp from the harsh chemicals present in the dye.
After the dye is applied, you can start using dry shampoo again. As it doesn’t have any issue with dyed hair, you have nothing to be tensed about.
Dry shampoo doesn’t have any deal with your hair dye unless it comes with color-destroying ingredients. However, because of how it works, it hampers the effectiveness of hair dye. So you should get rid of it before getting your hair dyed.
Also, I suggest not using dry shampoo too much. Though it doesn’t hamper the color of your hair, it may have some negative impacts on your scalp and hair. So, be careful.
