For many, dry shampoo has been a real game changer. People generally use it on days when they don't have time to wash, dry or style their hair and as a quick fix between sweaty gym workouts! The best dry shampoos claim to soak up oil and clean your hair water-free…
Now, we're all for reducing the time you spend on your hair each day and making things run more smoothly and easily (which is why we designed BOOSTNBLEND® to be so quick and easy to apply!) but very few people actually realise that using dry shampoo has the potential to damage hair and contribute to thinning hair and hair loss.
Industry experts all seem to agree that excessive use of dry shampoo can lead to a host of hair and scalp problems including:
BOOSTNBLEND® and dry shampoo are completely different products. BOOSTNBLEND® is a natural powdered product made from electrostatically charged cotton fibres that gently cling to your existing hair strands. There are minor trace elements of a few chemicals but these are kept to a minimum and really only serve to keep the powder in your hair and not airborne. BOOSTNBLEND® fibres wash out easily each time you clean your hair and don’t leave any long-term residue.
Dry shampoo is full of chemicals like Butane, Isobutane, Oryza Sativa, (Rice) Starch, Propane, Alcohol Denat, Parfum (Fragrance), Coumarin, Eugenol, Limonene, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, Linalool, Distearyldimonuim Chloride that soak into the scalp and hair shafts. It’s also generally a spray (although it can come in powdered forms) which is quite harsh when applied and generally sticks to your hair for longer causing excessive build up.
Believe it or not, BOOSTNBLEND® actually does some of the same things for your hair as dry shampoo – just without the risks! Our fibres were originally designed to assist women with thinning hair by clinging to existing hair strands and making them appear thicker. As an added bonus, our products come in a range of great, salon-inspired colours that tone in with the majority of hair colours out there, so there’s something for everyone!
The natural cotton fibres gently absorb excess oil (without drying your hair out) and have a very similar effect to dry shampoo by boosting root volume and reducing oiliness. The reflective colour pigments change the appearance of oily regrowth while toning in with your natural colour and this leaves your hair not only looking thicker and healthier but full of body, fresh and clean too!
Sometimes, seeing is believing so…
