We’ve all had those days … up late, quick trip to the gym, shower – with no time for extensive hair pampering. Enter: dry shampoo – it’s easy and quick and can ensure a good hair day. Good every once in a while? YES (and can be a lifesaver)! Using consistently for a long period of time? Not so great. One bottle of spray shampoo should last you 12-18 months.
First of all, dry shampoo isn’t technically a true “shampoo”. It’s a mixture of alcohol and/or starch that soaks up the excess oil and grease in your hair, and in turn, makes your hair look and feel freshly washed. It’s great when used to refresh your hair after a workout, making your blowout last a bit longer, and giving your hair a pick-me-up after a long flight.
Yet, using dry shampoo consistently for a long period of time – for example, replacing wet shampoos for extended periods of time with a dry shampoo pick-me-up can be problematic. The product build-up can dry out your hair fiber, making it split or break. Also, consistent product use over time in lieu of wet shampoos can leave a residue on the scalp, possibly causing a rash or inflammation that hinders hair growth.
Dry shampoos have grown in popularity as hair care professionals have warned against over washing and styling your hair – and there are some fantastic dry shampoos on the market! Yet, dry shampoos are not designed to clean your hair or scalp.
Great shampoos will cleanse well and allow for 1-2 days between washings. Technology-advanced shampoos (like Ethica!) allow you to extend hair washing times between 2-3 days while repairing environmental damage to your hair and scalp.
Ethica Shampoo and Conditioner uses ionic technology to provide static, dust and contaminant protection that allows you to go days between washing your hair. As an anti-aging shampoo, Ethica also protects the cuticle and hair shaft, increasing body and volume while correcting texture of the hair shaft that has been physically or chemically damaged.
Ethica is found at luxury spas and salons across North America! To find a salon near you click here.
