Rule Your Texture

On almost every hair care shelf these days you can find dry shampoo. Over the last decade, with the shift in exploring more natural-looking styles again, it’s become as big in hair care as hairspray—and hair—was in the 80’s (though thankfully you don’t need as much to get the look that you want). Dry shampoo is a magic worker: it can revive, refresh, and extend a look all in one fell swoop, and Lift Volumizing Dry Shampoo is no exception—but what else can it do? Throughout its life, it’s been put to the test to see how it not only meets industry standards but how it’s become exceptional in comparison to its dry shampoo cousins. In the process, we’ve compiled the top three secret ways Lift can transform your day-to-day.

Secret Tip #1: The Magic Eraser

You already know that a good dry shampoo is as close to magic as we can get, so it may come as no surprise that it has the secret ability to be a magical eraser. Picture this: you’re trying out a new product, maybe you get a little carried away, and all of a sudden your gorgeous crown looks like 5-day old hair even though you washed it not 30 minutes ago. What can you do? Lift Volumizing Dry Shampoo. Not only is it great at absorbing natural oils, it excels at correcting over-application of products, especially hairsprays, gels, oils, and the like. Why? Because magic.

Secret Tip #2: New Look, Who Dis?

With this summer being primarily spent inside, we’ve had plenty of time to try new things and switch it up when it comes to hair. If you love a good shortcut, dry shampoo is key for simple styling. Due to Lift’s ability to breathe life back into hair, adding it to the roots and length of your hair before styling again creates body and texture while leaving hair soft, flexible, and hella manageable, making it essential for day-to-day transformations. A favorite of ours is going from a gelled natural style to textured boho braids to soft blown out waves—all without washing hair.

Secret Tip #3: Another Texture Dimension

In terms of styling hair, sometimes the best results come from second or third day hair. For those of us who don’t want to wait until tomorrow to slay after washing our hair today, there’s a workaround with something you likely already have: hairspray. Lift Volumizing Dry Shampoo and Volumizing Hair Spray are an extremely powerful duo when it comes to creating texture and dimension, especially with performance styles (styles shaped by flat irons, curling irons, or blow dryers) and naturally straight hair. To see the greatest benefits, wait until your hair is mostly dry and then add Volumizing Hair Spray to your roots. After, continue styling and once your hair is curled, straightened, or blown out, spray Lift from roots to tip and let it sit for a few seconds before working it into your roots and hair. By doing so, this duo is able to get the body, softness, and dimension of second day hair without losing the volume and pattern of a fresh style.
