We've all experienced that feeling of not wanting to wash our hair and going straight for dry shampoo instead. After all, it's a great way to keep your hair looking fresh and clean throughout the week without having to go through the full wash cycle. But what if we told you that dry shampoo may be doing more harm than good? Here's why you should think twice before reaching for that aerosolized product.
What's in an Aerosolized Product?
Aerosolized products are made up of butane, which is essentially a flammable gas. Butane is usually found in lighters, not exactly an ingredient you want near your hair! While it does help to give the product volume and lift, it also can be damaging to your scalp, skin, and hair when used too often or too heavily. Overuse of aerosolized dry shampoos and hairsprays can lead to hair loss as well as skin irritation due to the lack of oxygenation in areas where the product is applied.
Our Suggestion: Non-Aerosol Dry Shampoo
Since aerosolized products aren't doing any favors for your scalp or hair, we suggest switching over to a non-aerosol dry shampoo such as a dry shampoo powder. One example of this type of product is Lemongrass Spa Products' Dry Shampoo (now stocked at Salon Bliss!), which is specifically designed for those with thinning hair who want salon-quality results without worrying about potential damage from aerosols. This natural formula uses rice starch and kaolin clay to absorb excess oil from the hair and scalp while helping promote healthy growth by delivering essential nutrients directly into the follicles.
The Bottom Line
When it comes down to it, there are definitely some risks associated with using aerosolized products on your scalp or hair - including dry shampoos. So if you're worried about potential damage or irritation caused by these types of products, then consider switching over to a non-aerosol option.
At the end of the day, no one wants their hairstyle choices to come at the cost of their health – particularly when it comes to thinning hair or scalp irritation due to the overuse of certain products. So don't let dry shampoo ruin your locks; get informed about what you’re putting on your head and make sure it’s working for you!
