Using an excessive amount of hair products close to the scalp and not showering regularly can have a small effect on thinning hair. Heavy use of products can cause irritation to the scalp and clog pores.
Should I Stop Using Dry Shampoo?
You don’t have to, but limit your use if you are using it almost daily. Dry shampoo hasn’t been directly proven to cause hair loss but more so stimulate it. Showering regularly helps to clear away build up of oils, dirt and dead skin cells and bacteria overgrowth such a yeast. All these things when over accumulated can clog and irritated the pores on your scalp, which can slow and reduce hair growth. My tip is if you use dry shampoo one day, be sure to shower that night and not sleep on it. This way the dry shampoo did it’s job for the day and was removed at night when our pores and skin do their natural shedding process. Not sleeping with dry shampoo in can also help clear any facial acne you may be struggling with.
If you have weak and brittle hair and use dry shampoo to keep your hair healthy, then I recommend using a natural gentle and calming shampoo to shower with. For this I suggest the Jungle Botanics Forest Leaves Cooling Shampoo. Contain zero harsh ingredients or chemicals, this natural based shampoo focusing on mild scalp scaling which helps remove dead skin cells along with dirt and oil build up on the scalp. With a cooling mint effect, it helps to calm any irritation and inflammation on the scalp and pores and preventing overgrowth of yeast bacteria on the skin.
