80. Choose natural dry shampoo.

We didn’t realize dry shampoo existed. It felt like a sham... Is it made out of dirt? What’s next? Are we supposed to drink ‘dry’ water, and clean our clothes using a ‘dry’ cleaner? Oh wait… maybe they are onto something…


If dry shampoo exists, are we supposed to use a ‘hair wetter’ after we’re done (insert thinking emoji)?


To help you ‘Choose Natural Dry Shampoo’, here’s a simple 2-step process:

  1. Keep your hair dry

80. Choose natural dry shampoo.

Most conventional dry shampoo comes in an aerosol can or a plastic container. Instead, choose natural options for dry shampoo. If you hair light hair, for example, you can use baby powder. (Just be sure to rub it in well!) Alternatively, if you have dark hair, try cacao powder. This eliminates the extra packaging as well as the aerosol mechanism from your beauty routine.
