Does Dry Shampoo Cause Hair Loss?

We all know that getting up in the morning can be a challenge (hit the snooze button, groan and turn over, repeat…) then when we are fully awake it’s “OH NO! I don’t have enough time to wash my hair!”

Dry Shampoo seems like a no brainer for those days when we are a bit short on time. Some people can go for a day or two without shampooing naturally, but many of us would be itchy or greasy. However, you need to note that you are not actually cleaning your hair, but adding some powder to soak up the oils that are produced. BE CAREFUL that your dry shampoo does not contain talc, this can be inhaled and has been linked to cancer.

If you overuse or use often enough that your scalp can’t handle it, you may overgrow yeast or bacteria, causing dandruff or pimples. In addition, the powder can make your hairs stick together and sometimes this leads to more hair shedding.

So be advised: probably best not to use dry shampoo more than twice a week, but if you have a history of scalp problems like dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis or just a sensitive scalp, you may want to steer clear. For more info see
