It turns out the problem doesn't lie with your hair, it's actually your scalp. Over using dry shampoo can cause your scalp to become irritable, itchy and flaky. The product can coat the scalp and act as an irritant, which can also lead people to not wash their hair as often as they should. Not washing your hair as often as you should can cause microbial build up, which can lead to problems such as Seborrhoeic Dermatitis - a condition that leads to red, inflamed, itchy skin. Not what we need.

Its suggested by experts that dry shampoo is safe to use but just don’t go over board. Especially if you are using it everyday it’s time to cut back. Think of it like we spray our faces with something all the time, our skin would react too huh?

 

The real lesson is lets rock that slick top knot and hope nobody notices.
