WHY DRY SHAMPOO IS “BAD” FOR YOUR HAIR

WHY DRY SHAMPOO IS “BAD” FOR YOUR HAIR

Dry shampoo is a saviour for many people! For most, “second day” hair is usually not the best. Not to mention the time required in the morning to wash, blow dry and style your hair when dry shampoo can save up to 30 min off your morning routine. But there’s still a big dilemma about whether or not dry shampoo is doing more harm than good. It is no secret many women over-use dry shampoo, which results in scalp dryness, hair loss, and YES even scalp pimples. 

So, is dry shampoo really bad for your hair? The simple answer is no, but it’s not that simple. 

DRY SHAMPOO IS NOT ‘SHAMPOO’

Here’s what you need to know if you use dry shampoo: If you’re spraying product and powders near your scalp, you have to wash it out  at some point.

Dry shampoo does not cleanse your scalp, and should never be used as a substitute for shampoo. It simply works to ‘mask’ and absorb oil and odor. That is what makes your hair look cleaner the next day. But dry shampoo does not get absorbed by the scalp. It is simply designed to coat the scalp and hair, and it needs to be washed out within 2 Days…yes we are putting a time limit on dry shampoo. It should not remain on the scalp for longer than two days.

 

PRODUCT BUILD-UP IS THE REAL PROBLEM

What happens if you don’t wash out dry shampoo? Trouble, that’s what. 

The real problem is when the dry shampoo powders + dirt + oil sit on your scalp for days at a time. Even when brushed out, some of the powder particles will remain on your scalp and hair strands. This will build-up and  irritate your scalp, but it also clogs your hair follicles, which lead to  dermatitis, pimples, scaly patches, and even hair loss. 

So you see, it’s not the dry shampoo that’s bad for your hair, it’s extending the usage period that is bad for your hair…it is not designed to be a substitute for shampoo.

 

Basically what I am trying to say is don’t scare yourself out of using dry shampoo, especially if you’re using something with all natural formulation. It is the best time-saver and is a great way to help train your hair to need less washing. Just make sure you’re using it correctly and not causing product build-up at the roots!

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED WHEN I TRIED CO-WASHING

WHAT THOSE PIMPLE-LIKE BUMPS ON YOUR SCALP REALLY ARE

Why Natural Charcoal Deodorant Makes a Great Gift?

Tis the season for giving! This year, try something new and give the gift of a DETOX to the ones you love… like a natural deodorant gift! Sure, shiny, glittery presents are great, but when was the last time you gave someone a gift that actually made a lasting impact on their life and overall health? This year, each team member at kaia naturals chose one person on their holiday gift list to give the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant.

Here’s why natural deodorant makes a great holiday gift:

Jacqueline, Customer Service Coordinator

“As the newest member to the kaia naturals team, I have not yet made the switch to natural deodorant. I decided to give the takesumi detox® to my best friend so we can experience the detox together! One charcoal underarm detox kit for myself, and one for my BFF. It’ll be all that we need to start our switch!”

 

Marissa, Operations Manager

“I am giving the takesumi detox® natural charcoal deodorant to my mom this year. As a breast cancer survivor, I want her to do everything she can to mitigate her chances of getting cancer again. Although there is no definite evidence that aluminum in antiperspirants causes cancer, it is highly suspect that it might. I don’t want her taking any chances.”

 

Aloisa, Digital Marketing Coordinator

“My brother and I both use natural deodorant. I use the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant in juicy bamboo and he uses a different brand. He complains that after a sweaty basketball run, he tends to really stink. I’m convinced that he’ll love our charcoal deo since charcoal is proven to help control odor.”

 

Yvonne, PR Manager

“My pilates instructor is an avid green beauty user and loves all natural products. She has experienced rashes from a few other natural deodorants. But since the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant doesn’t have any baking soda in the formula, it is less likely for her to rash.”

 

Michelle, PR Intern

“I’m giving this natural deodorant gift to my sister because she already loves it!! So I might as well replenish her stock. I’ll drop in the deodorant booster bar into her stocking as an added bonus. She’s going to love how squeaky clean her underarms will feel + she’ll have an added layer of odor-control for the day.”

 

No matter who is on your list this year, we bet they could benefit from the gift of a natural detox with kaia naturals’ the takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant. Make sure you explain its health benefits before you offended them for gifting them a deodorant. Just say. “Don’t worry, you don’t smell. I simply care for your well-being.” 😉

Who would you give a natural deodorant to?
