Dry Shampoo Tips & Hacks for Braids Hairstyles

Dry shampoo is a great product for braiding fine or straight hair because it adds grip to help make hair less slippery. This helps your braids stay together and look fuller. For great-looking braids, Symonds says: spray your favorite Batiste Dry Shampoo into your hair and brush it through to soak up oils and add volume and texture.

Curly-haired or dry-haired folks can use Batiste Leave-In Hair Masks before braiding to smooth and nourish hair at the ends.

Batiste Dry Shampoo applied to the roots before braiding can help volumize your hair for thicker-looking braids and tame "fly-aways" and stragglers. Use it before you braid, or spray some on your fingers to push out-of-place pieces back into the braid.
