Moroccanoil's Creative Director, Antonio Corral Calero ventured from Barcelona to Bondi during March to launch the new Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo. Set in the idyllic Bondi Icebergs dinning room, Antonio gave beauty media the low-down on everything they needed know about this new beauty-cabinet-staple, paying particular attention to why it's such a perfect dry shampoo for dark hair.
Starting out with the brand when it came to fruition as the first argan oil on the market, Antonio is well versed in all things Moroccanoil and is globally recognised for his work with the brand and the international runway circuit. We were lucky enough to spend a few minutes with him to get his top tips for using the new Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo.
How do you recommend people with dark hair use dry shampoo?
The Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo is available in both dark and light tones so those with dark hair no longer have to worry about that white chalky residue that traditional dry shampoos leave behind. The ultra-fine rice starches in the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo break down and dissipate immediately leaving hair shiny and clean. To get the best results, simply shake the bottle well, section the hair and apply to the root area. Use a paddle brush and brush the hair from root to tip to help create lift in the hair.
After a trip to the gym or beach, my hair is in a less than desirable state. Can dry shampoo reverse sweaty and salty locks?
Yes! The Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo is excellent at absorbing salt, humidity and sweat. A quick spritz and brush from root to tip will help bring the hair back to it's natural state. Dry shampoo won't replace washing your hair, but it will allow you to get some extra days out of a wash.
Static is a common issue for most people, can dry shampoo be used to control it as we head into the cooler months?
Dry shampoo is great at controlling static, simply spray it on to a paddle brush or directly on the hair and brush from root to tip so the product is evenly distributed and there you have it, static-free-hair.
I often overload my hair with product before an event, is it possible to reserve this without having to re-wash?
Using too much product is an issue that is easily reversed with Moroccanoil's Dry Shampoo. If you think about when you drop your phone in water, you use rice to extract the moisture, the same principle applies with your hair. The Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo contains rice starch which helps to absorb excess moisture bought about by too much product. Simply spray on the affected areas and brush from root to tip to restore the moisture balance.
Can Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo be used on all hair types?
This dry shampoo will not weigh hair down and is suited to each and every hair type. For those with fine hair, I recommend spraying the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo through freshly washed hair to help create the illusion of fullness. It's amazing for dark haired people too, as it instils shine and lustre into the hair. It's the perfect product for creating effortless hair with just the right amount of volume.
