The Most Effective Dry Shampoo May Be Hiding in Your Makeup Bag

For the record, I would pretty much try any product, DIY miracle remedy, or voodoo ritual under the sun if it meant extending a good hair day an extra day (or three). So, when a close friend let me in on her little secret that It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Loose Powder ($39) — as in the makeup setting powder you likely already have in your beauty bag — was her favourite dry shampoo, I immediately started digging through my collection.

Read on to see how a lineup of dry-shampoo junkies, an expert stylist, and even the ladies at It Cosmetics have been using this overachieving powder to freshen their roots — with the before and after photos to prove it.
