Oily hair can be difficult to manage. Often, we double up on washes to cleanse the scalp and remove excess grease, which our skin only reacts to by producing more oil. Avoiding washes, however, means we're forced to walk around with greasy hair... not exactly glamorous! This is exactly why dry shampoo was created: to absorb excess sebum and refresh the hair with a delicious scent, allowing you to delay your next wash another day.
Oily hair: dry shampoo the the rescue!
Oily hair is the result of excess oil produced by the scalps sebaceous glands. While this natural lubricant is meant to protect and moisturize the scalp, too much of it suffocates the roots and makes the hair oily. Unfortunately, traditional shampoos tend to encourage these glands to work even harder by aggressively stripping away the oils with detergent-like ingredients. How to escape the vicious cycle? Dry shampoo to the rescue!
