Dry Shampoo
« on: 07 Aug 14 / 06:50 PM »
It's recommended to stretch washes and such, and to use dry shampoo in the interim.  I can't help but think that dry shampoo soaks up the oils that are supposed to be doing "the good stuff" when you're between washes.


Of course, there's no way you can really get your hair squeaky clean/oil-free with a dry shampoo, and - for me anyway - I don't coat my head with the stuff, root to end.  I wouldn't bother, so there are always some oils left in.

Another benefit to "cleansing" with dry shampoo is you're keeping water off the hair for a longer period of time, which swells the hair shaft and exposes the hair to more damage than when it's dry.

But do you think dry shampoo, or talc or baby powder (as my mother used on me when I didn't want a shampoo as a kid!), eats up the all good oils anyway?

Just a thought... convince me otherwise. :)

Oh yeah, so these two men walk into a bar: you think one of them would have ducked. ::)

Yes and no. The oil is still there and the powder isn't stripping the hair which is the good thing. It's also not going to cause the scalp to overproduce. I don't think it eats it all up anyway, but I don't really think it matters much.

And it's really only needed at the point hair starts to LOOK oily. I've known people say their hair is oh so oily and yet it doesn't look it at all. They're rubbing their hands through their hair so they can feel it more... which, of course, in turn can cause more.

Thanks, Janine, brilliant explanation!  Makes perfect sense... especially these points:

... It's also not going to cause the scalp to overproduce. ...

And it's really only needed at the point hair starts to LOOK oily. ...

I shall continue to use my dry shampoo in confidence. :)
