I tried out one of Instagram’s viral hair hacks and it *actually* worked

We all know the saying… don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.

Because, let’s be honest, a lot of it is bullsh*t.

One thing that has been blowing up in recent years is viral hacks. It could be how to make a pair of trousers into a top, or it could be how to use a condom to apply foundation (yeah, were never trying that one).

But one that we did come across and were eager to try was to do with dry shampoo.

If you’re an avid user of dry shampoo then you’ll know sometimes after you apply it – no matter how hard you rub it in and brush your hair – it still looks like you’ve poured a whole container of powder on your roots. Not a good look.

This hack, that went viral this year was pretty simple – apply the dry shampoo into your hair the night before, to wake up to a grease-free mop.

I was a little hesitant doing it because 1) what if it was still greasy in the morning? And 2) was I just wasting my time and dry shampoo?

But whatever, none of those things are a really big deal, so I tried it and yes, it did work.

It didn’t look like I had a powdery head and the greasiness had disappeared.

So, long story short, if you’re up early but can’t be bothered to wash your hair, throw on some dry shampoo at night time and you’ll be sorted for morning.
