Is Dry Shampoo Bad for Your Hair?
Yes and no. When it comes to dry shampoo, there are a few small drawbacks that I want to mention as well. Although it seems like the best answer to extend your time between hair washes, it should definitely be used in moderation. Since dry shampoo works to really absorb all of the oils on your scalp and in your hair, if you use it every single day and multiple times a day, it can start to cause irritation on your scalp as well as dryness. To avoid that, I recommend using dry shampoo only when you feel like your hair is a bit too oily, and don’t apply too much of it.
Additionally, I’ve found that when I use dry shampoo and then a heat tool on top, such as a hair curler or a hair straightener, I feel like since the hair is dried out, it causes more damage. My tip would be to avoid using a heat tool directly over the section of hair where you applied your dry shampoo.
