Have you ever read the ingredients in dry shampoo? Please see the list below for more information on what you often find. This dry shampoo achieves the same awesome results for unwashed hair without all those disgusting ingredients. Simply shake along your part at your scalp and use your fingertips to work into hair at scalp. You will immediately see the results of it absorbing the oil and looking like freshly washed hair. (Not to be used in place of regular shampooing.)

Ingredients often found in traditional aerosol dry shampoo:
Denatured alcohol is ethanol, or ethyl alcohol, mixed with a denaturing agent. Ethanol is considered broadly toxic.
Talc acts as an absorbent in dry shampoo; it’s a powdered native, hydrous magnesium silicate that may have asbestos fibers in it, which can pose a risk for respiratory toxicity and cancer.
Parabens are a fragrance ingredient and a preservative. Paraben mimics estrogen, acting as a potential hormone system disruptor. You’ll find parabens in many products labeled all natural and organic.
Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)
Dry shampoos commonly come in a spray-on, aerosol container. These cans have a propellant to force chemicals out of the can and into the air. We’ve known for decades about the harmful effects of aerosol on the ozone layer and LPG is its replacement. What’s in LPG? Butane, propane, and isobutane. These are colorless, odorless gasses. Propane takes the place of oxygen in the lungs, which can make breathing difficult. These gasses can give you headaches, mood swings, nausea and not only harm you, but the people and the environment around you.
These ingredients may seem fine in small doses; however, just because they can be safe in small quantities doesn’t make them risk free.
