Since I posted about how I remove shine from my synthetic wigs and toppers, I’ve gotten a few emails asking exactly how I use the dry shampoo to do this.
I promise, it’s really simple.
If it’s a brand-new piece and it needs some major de-shining, I recommend taking it outside so that you can spray the dry shampoo without worrying about it getting all over the place.
I remember the first time I used a tinted dry shampoo to do this—its got ALL over. There was a thin, brown film all over my countertops, all over the floor, on my bathroom door handle…I could go on and on.
I spent 30 minutes cleaning all of that up, so trust me, head outside if you plan on spraying the entire wig or topper.
If you only need to touch up some excess shine, you’re probably ok to just do it in the bathroom. Just remember, it’s a very fine film and it can quickly take flight.
I definitely have some favorites when it comes to dry shampoo, and I talked about them in my original post. In this demo, I’ll show you one of my favorite cheapie options. I got it online since I do most of my shopping virtually (such a time saver), but you can find Batiste Dry Shampoo at drugstores, too.
Bonus: When used on your bio hair at the root, it helps to give it some volume!
So, yeah, while most people use their backyards to grill, or hang out, I use it as my personal beauty parlor.
Such is life, right?
