Dry Shampoo and Hair Loss

Dry shampoo is a popular option with women and men who are on the go. Dry shampoo is a powder that you run into your hair and scalp. No water is necessary, allowing you to enjoy clean hair without having to wash and dry your hair, which takes up a great deal of time. The main reason to use dry shampoo is to reduce oil build up on your scalp and hair.

How Dry Shampoo Works

Dry shampoo is designed to help you have oil free hair without having to get your hair wet. Dry shampoos are made with either a starch of alcohol that absorbs the excess oil, making your hair appear freshly washed. It's also good at absorbing unwanted odors, making it a great option when you've been working in a restaurant or smoke-filled environment and want to go out for some fun and don't want to have to worry about what your hair smells like.

It's a good temporary solution but isn't meant to totally take the place of washing your hair. It's important to note that dry shampoos only remove the oil from your hair and scalp, they don't remove dirt, dead skin cells, or bacteria, which is why you still need to use traditional shampoos on a regular basis.

Dry shampoo is also a good option for people who find that when they don't wash their hair every day, they develop a heavy layer of oil that makes their hair heavy, but when they do traditional wash their hair each day, it strips their scalp of natural nutrients that it needs for optimum health.

When you want to try dry shampoo, you can either buy a bottle at your favorite salon or drugstore, or you can choose to make your own dry shampoo. To make your own dry shampoo all you have to do is combine 1/4 cup of cornstarch with a single tablespoon of baking soda. Put them in a clean container that has a perforated lid (salt shakers are perfect) and rub a small amount into your hair whenever you don't have time to properly wash it.

Does Dry Shampoo Cause Hair Loss

Some people who use dry shampoo swear that the product resulted in their hair loss. While there's no scientific data supporting the idea that dry shampoo increases the odds of you losing hair directly from your scalp, continuously using it can increase the chances of strands of hair becoming too dry and breaking off, giving your long hair a ragged, thinning appearance.

If you've noticed the overall health of your hair deteriorating after you regularly start using dry shampoo, it's in your best interest to stop and go back to a more traditional method of keeping your hair clean. You should also increase the number of times you condition your hair each week and stop heat styling your hair. This prevents breakage and improves the overall health of your hair.
