The Pros and Cons of Dry Shampoo

Most of us have a to-do list a mile long on any given day, so sometimes the time it will take to wash, dry and style your hair is time that could be better spent sleeping, or ticking a few errands off the list. Enter: dry shampoo. Almost every big brand has its own version, so here are the pros and cons of the newest hair product you may have to add to your arsenal.

PROS

  • Convenience: hair looking a little greasy before a date, but no time to go home and wash it? Pull out that little dry shampoo can, spray your roots, and you’re as good as clean
  • Time saving: an extra half an hour of sleep every morning is no small feat, so take advantage of it
  • Less heat styling = less damage: save your hair from the daily blow drying and flat ironing and it will be stronger, and healthier in the long run
  • Extend hairstyles: you paid $50 for that blowout, so it would be nice if it lasted more than a day, right?
  • Less grease and more volume: dirty hair tends to look flat and limp, so give get rid of the grease and give it some body with your dry shampoo

CONS

  • Dandruff: if you have dry skin or a dandruff problem, dry shampoo will only make it worse
  • Questionable ingredients: some cheaper brands contain aluminum (so read the label if you want a natural alternative)
  • Dusty hair: some brands leave a white-ish dusty looking residue, which isn’t the greatest for people with darker hair
  • Texture: it can leave your hair looking and feeling dry and tends to eliminate shine.
