2. Dry shampoo before bed
You know you're not going to wash your hair the next day because you have dry locks and you don't really need to or you won't have time. Since greasy locks aren't a good look for anyone, do yourself a favor and shoot some dry shampoo over your mane before you catch some zzz's. This allows the shampoo to work its magic as you sleep, soaking up any oils overnight so you wake up with fresh hair that's ready to go. It's like hair voodoo!
