Dry shampoo or leave in shampoo is a convenient and time-saving product that can help you keep your hair fresh and clean between washes. But not all dry shampoos are created equal. Some contain harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances, or leave a chalky residue on your hair. That's why it's important to choose a non-toxic natural dry shampoo that suits your hair type, colour, and scalp condition. Read on as we help you choose the best natural dry shampoo for you.

How to use dry shampoo
Use natural dry shampoo sparingly and correctly. To get the best results from your natural dry shampoo, you need to use it properly and not overdo it. Here are some steps to follow:
- Shake the bottle well before use.
- Hold the bottle about 15-20 cm away from your roots and spray lightly and evenly.
- Massage the powder into your scalp with your fingertips or a brush.
- Let it sit for a few minutes to absorb the oil and dirt.
- Brush out any excess powder or use a blow dryer to remove it.
- Style your hair as usual.
How often should you use dry shampoo?
Use natural dry shampoo as needed, but not too often. Natural dry shampoo can be a lifesaver when you don't have time to wash your hair or want to extend the life of your hairstyle. However, you shouldn't rely on it too much, as it can still cause some build-up on your scalp and hair over time. Ideally, you should use natural dry shampoo no more than two or three times a week, and wash your hair with regular shampoo at least once a week to remove any residue and keep your scalp healthy.
