Hairstylist Marquie Hibler revealed in a TikTok video to her 20K followers: “If you put dry shampoo on clean hair, it prevents oil from forming in the scalp.”

She then added: “It works as a preventative, that’s why your hair stays so clean when leaving the salon.”

This means that within a day of you washing your hair, you should spray some dry shampoo on your roots to prevent your hair from getting greasy.

You can also do it the day of but remember to give your scalp a good cleanse each time you wash your hair.

In order to get rid of that build-up, you need to know how to properly shampoo it.

Beauty expert Abbey Yung had previously shown how to properly shampoo and get the most benefit out of the process.

As she poured the shampoo out into her hand, she said in a TikTok video: “If your shampoo looks like this when you apply it to your scalp, try again.

“This won’t spread evenly or cleanse your scalp properly. This is also why your hair gets oily fast.”

A common practice people do is simply tilting the bottle over their head before scrubbing furiously with their hands – but it’s wrong.

According to Yung, you need to put the shampoo in your hands first then rub your hands together to create suds that will easily spread and penetrate the dirt and oils in your scalp.

“Instead, emulsify the shampoo for several seconds – this will actually spread and cleanse evenly.”

She also suggested shampooing twice
