Hello, hello , hello 🙂 ! As you can guess from the title, today will be discussing best dry shampoo. Yeah we know , you might think it is some powder in a bottle, but it is surprising how many questions people have on this source. Let us start by explaining the concept of dry shampoo.
Dry shampoo is sort of a mix of baby powder and gas. Lots of people suffer from oily scalp and can not possibly wash their hair daily. Reason number one may be, time. Reason number two is : it is not that healthy to wash your hair daily. As you will end up washing the good oils with the bad, apart from this all washing your hair daily ends up making your scalp more oily. This is because the gland will keep on reproducing oils when it feels that there is none.
Is their a natural dry shampoo instead of the normal dry shampoo?
Yes, indeed. If for organic reasons or budget reasons you’d wish to use something that has the same purpose one can use baby powder. Make sure to rub it well on the scalp so that way you get rid of the white color. One can also try flour, let it set and rub it in until you no longer see a white color. When applying such sources, always aim for the scalp because that is where the oil comes from., not from the hair itself. This tip also goes for when applying the bottled dry shampoo. Some may try using baking soda as a dry shampoo, however baking soda does not has the same texture as flour and baby powder. Therefore the outcome will not be the same. Baking soda is more likely to be used as a no-poo shampoo rather than a dry shampoo.
Dry shampoo or the other sources are meant to always be used on dirty, dry scalp. Their purpose is to hide what people do not want to see. Using such sources does not mean that one can stop washing their hair. If you try applying dry shampoo for a week you will end up with an itchy scalp. Just because it is called “dry shampoo” does not mean that it has the same purposes as a normal shampoo. A normal shampoo will cleanse whilst a dry shampoo will absorbs oils without cleansing. Such Products has a tendency to make your hair increase in volume while making your hair smell nice.
