Untitled design (8)

It is healthy to lay off from washing your hair every day, and instead reducing the amount of shampoo and conditioner your hair is exposed to. Because everyone is different, there will be different lengths of time each person can go without washing their hair before it becomes too greasy. For those who are looking for the ability to go longer between washing your hair, dry shampoo is the best option for you. Find out more about dry shampoo, where it came from, and how it is changing the way we clean our hair. You might be surprised to learn just what dry shampoo can do for your style.


There are Many Who Use It


You’d be surprised at the number of people who use dry shampoo on a regular basis. Those who use dry shampoo have found that using the right one for their hair helps to give the shine and volume that is common with hair that has just been washed. While washing your hair every day will be damaging over time, this will help keep a healthy natural look without being subjected to working through greasy hair the next day.


It’s Been Around for a While


Throughout history people have tried to absorb the extra oil from their hair using different compounds. These ranged from clay to colored powder. During the early 1900s a dry shampoo was developed using rice flour to soak up the oil in the hair. Since then, vegetable powder, starch, and chemicals have all be used as dry shampoo ingredients. Today, some of the more popular ingredients used include wheat proteins and natural polysaccharides. For those in a pinch, using baby powder can also do the trick.


Not a Permanent Solution


While dry shampoo is a good solution for in between cleanings, it isn’t perfect and definitely should not be thought of as a permanent solution to washing your hair. Dry shampoo will not get your hair clean, no matter how much you use. After some time, dry shampoo will begin to lose its ability to keep your hair looking healthy. Make sure you learn more about your hair, and can identify when it needs to be washed. The more you know about your hair, the easier it will be for you to determine what needs to be done to keep it looking its best.

There are many benefits that can come with a dry shampoo. This will be a beneficial tool that will help you to keep your hair clean, even between washings. Learn which dry shampoo works best for your hair, and the length of time it will still look good between washes. Determining this will help you keep your hair healthy.
