Suave Dry Shampoo | Hairstyle Tips

Two months ago a friend of mine introduced me to the idea of dry shampoo. I guess I have seen it around for awhile, but literally thought to myself, “C’mon, a dry shampoo? How useful can that be?”

On this occasion, I saw how it was used and we were hooked from then on!

With that recommendation, and with a limited budget, I went to WalMart and purchased several bottles of Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo for about USD$2.50.

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo

Most girls have learned that washing the hair everyday can be high maintenance and may actually cause damage by stripping the hair of its natural oils. If you do not wash it often enough, however, the hairline and parts {areas next to the scalp} start to get oily, leaving an unsightly greasy look and feel.

We wash our hair every other day, sometimes skipping two days. How regular you wash your hair is really up to you, as everyone is different. {We do find, however, that not washing the hair daily can actually help in styling as a little bit of natural buildup and left-over hairspray/gel gives the hair more “grip”.} So, what can you do on those in-between days when the hair starts to look a little greasy? Try a dry shampoo to revive it!

Suave’s Dry Shampoo contains a mineral clay that helps absorb excess oils secreted from the skin glands next to the hair follicles. Notice I did not say that it  eliminates the oils 100%, as natural oils are good for the hair – it just helps remove the excess. After spraying along the hairline, 10-12 inches from the hair, gently rub the powder in with the palm of your hand or fingertips and style as desired. It also has a citrus/grapefruit smell that is very nice.

You can read more about ingredients and product usage from the Suave website, and can see the professional Suave Stylists use the product. If you cannot find this in stores near you, those of you in the US can buy it online from

The tutorial below shows how we use Suave Professional’s Dry Shampoo on those off-wash days. I include before and after shots of our actual results, although please recognize that with different hair types, your results may not be exactly like ours.

  1. I loved the tutorial. I also use this more than hairspray. I found that using a round brush with bristles that don’t have rounded tips works wonders for getting rid of the white hair look if you get too much on there.

  2. I have never seen or used a dry shampoo before, but this is the best stuff ever! I play sports, so I have to wash my hair every day in the summer, spring, and fall. This is the best stuff every! I hated always having to wash my hair because it is long (down to my waist), but this stuff will let you go a day or two more without your hair looking trashy. I went to Wal-Mart and Suave has now put out a dry conditioner!

  3. I use “TRESemme freshstart dry shampoo” and it works but it sometimes leaves my hair white so i will try suave, thanks!! keep posting more videos

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this tip. I found a coupon at Recyclebank for $2 off 2 Suave Professionals items, & actually found the Suave Prof Dry Shampoo at Dollar General. I grabbed 2 cans & I’m amazed at this stuff. This is a miracle for the mother of 2 small children (showers are a priveledge for me 😛 ).

  5. I have also used it right after I wash my hair and it also makes my hair look better the next day. When is your baby going to have enough hair for some curly baby hair dos? I have a 2 year old biracial girl who is also adopted and I always need tips on her hair!

  6. I love Suave dry shampoo! I guess I better hurry and stock up before it’s all gone, now that everyone knows the secret, haha.

  7. I love this stuff, I just wish it came in a bigger can, it runs out too fast! The citrus smell is great and wakes me up.

  8. I’m a fan of WO (water only) method along with occasional BS/ACV (baking soda wash; apple cider vinegar rinse). Research it. I’ve said goodbye to frizz, flyaways, and static-y hair. I’m in love with my hair now!!

  9. I have been using dry shampoo for years. I am a mom of 2 with little time to fix my hair so once I do I want it to last as long as possible. I usually wash my hair every 5-7 days, I know what your thinking “yuck” but it really isn’t. I have been doing this for so long that my body doesn’t produce as much oil as someone who washes their hair more often. My color last much longer and it helps with damage since I don’t dry or straighten everyday. I do use my straightener most days to do touch ups as well as dry shampoo once or twice between regular shampoos.

    I recommend dry shampoo to everyone as well as trying to add an extra day or two in between shampooing! 🙂

  10. Dry shampoo is a life saver. I do buy salon…TIGI “rockaholic” dry shampoo when ULTA runs a sale at $8 a pop (It retails for about $20) in my neck of the woods. At least to me it smells like candy. I’ve tried Pssssst…didn’t work that well. Thanx for the tip…I’ll try suave’s version soon.

  11. Hey Mindy!
    Im in love with your tutorials. Im pretty sure i have watched all of them! Please keep on making more! Keep up the good work! 🙂

  12. I am glad Suave has a dry shampoo for like, $8 less than what I have been spending on another brand of dry shampoo. AND it looks like it does just as good if not better…AND the can is HUGE compared to what I have been using. THANKS for the tip and money saver!
