6. De-Grease With Dry Shampoo
If you’re prone to getting an oily scalp, your hair and fringe might start to look clumpy and flat by mid-day (the horror!). Give your roots a quick perk-me-up with dry shampoo to bring back the volume and soak up grime and oil – try the Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo, $35 (48 ml). Infused with Binchotan charcoal, it helps to draw impurities from the scalp which helps to detoxify the scalp and hair. Simply give it a good shake, then spray at hair roots from about 30 cm away. Leave it on for a couple of minutes then brush through to remove the powdery remnants.
