The Most Effective Dry Shampoo May Be Hiding in Your Makeup Bag

Can You Use Loose Setting Powder as Dry Shampoo?

The talc-free formula instantly soaked up excess oil better than any quality dry shampoo at the top of my current lineup and left cleaner, less greasy roots as a result.

The application was surprisingly easy. At first, I tapped the product into my hands, which got a little messy in my bathroom but which was effective nonetheless. Then, I tapped a sprinkle directly at the root straight from the jar, which made it hard to control quantity. I found the best way to evenly apply the product was tapping some into the cap and using a fluffy brush to dust the powder along your roots, section by section.

I actually found this to be even more effective at combating the grease-factor than a powerhouse aerosol spray. But the real game-changing difference for me was the soft, silky feel that replaced the typical hay-like, chalky texture that's inevitable with most other dry shampoos.
