SHAKE CAN EXTREMELY WELL FOR MAXIMUM CLEANING RESULTS. Hold canister about 6-10" away from dry hair. Section thoroughly and apply product in a sweeping motion to dirty/oily areas. Wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse. Then remove by massaging and shaking at roots with fingers or brush hair. Apply more if needed, make sure to shake again. Style as desired.
See a little white residue? No worries, that's the cleaning in action as the oil and sweat are absorbed by the dry shampoo. Just wait 30 seconds and brush gently to remove.
Although most people don't need to, you can use a hair dryer to remove extra powder from your hair.

Powered by our Triple-Action Cleaning Technology to address how hair looks, feels and smells. Fast-absorbing powders soak up oil and sweat while our patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) helps you remove the powders easily from hair, resulting in actually clean hair. Odor neutralizers and time released fragrance keep hair smelling clean.
The result: your hair will look, feel and smell clean.
Does it work on all hair types?
Yes, it can be used on all hair types. For thicker, coarser hair, section more thoroughly. For curly hair, remove powders with a blow dryer (vs. fingers or brush, which will deconstruct the curl).
Can you layer with other products?
Yes, you can use PhD Dry Shampoo on top of the styling products you used on damp hair to style (i.e. styling cream followed later in the day or the next day with dry shampoo). You can also use PhD Dry Shampoo before using products on dry hair to re-touch (i.e. dry shampoo followed by hairspray or finishing serum).
How does it interact with other types of products?
PhD Dry Shampoo is compatible with all Living Proof care and styling products. The powders in dry shampoo may stick more to resin-base products (i.e. products that have hold). The powders should still be easily removed. If you do still see powders after using fingers and/or brush, use a blow dryer for more thorough removal.
How much should I spray?
The amount of dry shampoo depends on your hair type and the level of oil, sweat and odor in hair. Section hair, spray for 1-2 seconds at a time. Wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse. Remove by massaging your hair with fingers or brushing your hair. Then, add more as needed.
I see white residue. What should I do?
White residue that is easy to remove is normal and expected—especially if you have dark hair. To remove the white residue, rub and massage hair with fingers and/or use brush. A boar’s bristle brush will be the most efficient in removing the powders. If white residue still exists, use a blow dryer.
Does this break down or remove (clean) other products from your hair?
No, we know you worked hard for your style and don’t want to start from scratch. PhD Dry Shampoo absorbs and removes just the bad—oil, sweat and odor.
