Who doesn’t love dry shampoo?! It’s basically a busy Mama’s best friend. I don’t know about you, but as a busy Mom, and business owner, I don’t want to spend precious time washing and blow drying my hair every day. I can probably think of a million other things I could spend my time doing. Thankfully dry shampoo stretches the time I can go between washes a ton- I can usually go 3-4 days between, which to me is huge!
It’s the perfect solution for busy Mama’s, right? But what if I told you that most of the dry shampoos on the market contained multiple harmful chemicals, and it was actually flammable… Seriously. Let’s chat a bit about the problematic ingredients found in most dry shampoos that are on the market.
To start, the issue with most dry shampoos is in the way the product is dispensed. Most are in aerosol cans, which contain a gas called LPG (Liquified petroleum gas), which is made up of butane, propane, and isobutane, all of which are extremely flammable.
A couple of other harmful ingredients are denatured alcohol (usually listed as alcohol denat on the ingredients list), and fragrance. Fragrance if you weren’t aware is a catch-all term, which could contain hundreds of ingredients just in that one word. And because of a loophole in the industry, fragrance is considered a trade secret, so companies don’t have to disclose what is actually in their fragrance. Scary, right?
And I don’t know about you, but when I’m consistently using conventional dry shampoo I notice that my scalp becomes dry and flaky- yeah, not a cute look.
Thankfully, I’ve been able to find a safer alternative that contains none of the above mentioned harmful ingredients, and some really beneficial ones! Primally Pure makes a dry shampoo that is non-aerosol, 100% natural, and non-toxic. They use oil-absorbing kaolin clay and arrowroot powder, which both help to freshen up your hair and add volume without over drying. It’s scented only with organic essential oils – LOVE! Plus, they offer two different options for light and dark hair. No more white streaks!
Now I can feel good about my dry shampoo addiction!
