Dry Shampoo : Making sense of how these work

Dry shampoo is technically not ‘cleaning’ your hair. It is basically using alcohol or corn starch to soak up extra oils in our hair to give it a temporarily ‘fresh’ look.

Dry shampoos can be used to  soak up some sweat before you are active - in this case you would apply before you know you are going to sweat.
The other way to use these are to keep them with you- if you start sweating a lot you can spritz some on your hair to dry out some of the excess buildup of sweat.
