Dry shampoo is a staple for adding some freshness to a greasy mop and many of us rely on it in between our hair wash days.
But one woman has taken to TikTok to share her simple hack for making greasy hair look as good as new.
With this method you can say goodbye to your trusty dry shampoo, as this will make your hair even cleaner.
The best part? You don’t even need to get in the shower with this hack.
Melissa Tovar regularly shares beauty and skincare tips to her TikTok account ‘xomelissatovar’ and her latest hack has impressed many.
Melissa shared her oily hair hack with the caption ‘Works every time! This is day 3 hair for me’.
She explained: “Instead of dry shampoo, the next time your hair gets super oily, try this.
“Section off the front layer of your hair, which is usually where your hair looks the most oily.
“Go in with a gentle shampoo and then wash it off.
“Add a texturising spray and then blow out the first layer.
“When you’re done, your hair will look freshly washed.”
In the video we see Melissa demonstrate her simple method and it’s safe to say it’s genius.
Melissa’s hair gets the benefit of a hair wash, but without actually getting in the shower, getting soaking wet and having to spend half an hour blow drying.
Her hair looks brilliant and you would think her whole hair has been freshly washed.
Melissa said that this method is a “5-10 minute solution versus an hour for my entire head.”
The video has clearly impressed numerous people as it has racked up a whopping 125.2k views.
It has 5,622 likes, 58 comments and has been shared 102 times.
Many TikTok users were impressed with Melissa’s method and took to the comments to express this.
One person said: “I am OBSESSED.”
Another added: “Game changer.”
A third commented: “Ok I am so trying this!!” to which Melissa replied “It’s amazing!!”
There were also many other TikTok users that have used this method before and swear by it for freshening up hair in between washes.
One person commented: “I’ve been doing this for YEARS, way better than dry shampoo.”
Another said: “I’ve definitely done this before!!”
A third added: “I forget about this hack even though I used to do this in middle school so often. Thanks for the reminder!”
