The One Thing You Should Never Do When Using Dry Shampoo

If you don’t wash your hair every day then you know how vital dry shampoo is. Unless you want your hair looking greasy, dry shampoo will be your best friend. However, many hairdressers and trichologists, a hair loss specialist, are warning against the regular use of dry shampoo. Say what?!

Celebrity hairstylist Lee Stafford told the Daily Mail, “Dry shampoo is phenomenally popular, but it’s not designed to be used on a regular basis.” He continued, “‘It contains an oil-absorbing substance to soak up the grease, but if it’s used constantly it’s going to dry out the hair and the scalp and make it flaky. If it’s left on the hair too long it can also clog up the pores, leading to spots and sore patches.”

Trichologist Iain Sallis says, “It coats the hair rather than making it clean, which means that the microbes which feed on the moisture in the scalp will still be there.” He continued, “For people prone to dandruff or dermatitis, the scalp will become flaky to get rid of the irritation.And by its nature, it’s a gritty product, which will cause friction on the skin. That can make the scalp sore over time, especially if it’s not washed out.”

So how often should you use dry shampoo? Sallis recommends using it once a week…at most. Start washing your hair, ladies!
