Red Hot: Non-Toxic Dry Shampoo

Joy McCarthy is a Holistic Nutritionist from Toronto, Canada. She created a line of non-toxic biodegradable dry shampoos in 2019 for dark and light hair free from artificial fragrance, talc, dyes, parabens and gluten.

Complete with legit natural ingredients that include bentonite, cacao powder, rice flour, tapioca and orange seed oil!

Many dry shampoos on the market come in an aerosol spray that contain isobutane, butane, fragrance, limonene, linalool, alcohol and propane. For more information regarding the level of harmful effects of toxic ingredients in your everyday products check out the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database.

When I first tried this, my hair had instant volume without drying my hair out or leaving a white cast over my roots! A little goes a long way and I would rather smell like cacao than chemicals any day. The orange seed oil is subtle. When I rub the mixture between my hands, it washes off instantly without any staining.

While it may be pricier than what you find at your local drug store or department store, the benefits outweigh the price. Because of its powder form, the product lasts much longer than an aerosol spray.

I have tried and tested this dry shampoo for 4 days in a row! As a result, my hair had no oily residue and consistently had volume as if I walked out of a salon with a fresh blow out! My hair was not sticky or heavily laced with fragrance.

I even went to get a blow out with dry shampoo in my hair and the hairstylist was surprised at how there was no residue whatsoever when she washed my hair.

I was also sold on this for auburn hair which is harder to find and complementary for all shades of red!
