When a hairstylist recently burst our dry shampoo bubble, we were devastated. Day in and day out, no matter how dirty our hair was, it gave us instant cool-girl texture. But beneath its powdery halo, we were gradually accruing scratchy build-up, throwing off the balance of our natural oils, and drying out our scalps. The worst part? All of these things can contribute to hair loss over time.
The bottom line is that when it comes to dry shampoo, it really can be too much of a good thing. Thankfully, you don't have to go cold turkey—you just have to use it in moderation, and try some of these alternatives to mix things up.
