With all the risky ingredients that have been found in spray aerosol dry shampoos lately, it’s no surprise people are seeking alternative options. Due to this, dry shampoo powder has been trending. Not only are the formulas a bit more straightforward, but a powder also allows more precision when applying dry shampoo to dirty stands. Only a few brands are ahead of the trend. Here are the dry shampoo powder products worth trying right now.
