What's Dry Shampoo? Best Dry Shampoo, How to Use, Before and After
Aerosol powder dry shampoos explode and get flammable quite often in any uncertain situation. Powder Dry Shampoo clog up the follicles to get allergy, inflammation, swelling, pus, hair loss, blisters, baldness, and obstruction causes folliculitis. On the contrary, the harm of alcohol is almost none so mostly the critics are rumors. Because whenever we have injections in the hospitals, alcohol is always the best solution to disinfect our skin, and there are very few people get allergy after applying alcohol.
Tons of reports are about downsides for using dry shampoos too often, not only between water washes but every day. Actually, there is one Dry Shampoo for using continuing more than a month by every day. Proves from Chinese mothers using Faciano Dry Shampoo during postpartum rest without washing hair the whole month. Because it’s not made of aerosol bottles, one bottle for use much longer than the others. Faciano Dry Shampoo is not made of powder so without residue. It also nurtures and moisturizes hair with softness and shine. The scalp would be clean, no odor, and no grease, gets much healthier.
Dry Shampoo is for whenever no water, time, or not convenient to clean hair when feeling greasy, smelly, and itchy. Itch only happens in the scalp, and hair would only become dirty. If no any symptom above, not need to wash hair at all. Washing hair daily damages scalp and hair, also wastes time, water and electricity. Only dry shampoo can save. The scalp secretes healthy oil, and washing away would make scalp secrete again and cause greasier or too dry every day.
The regular shampoo has dilemma: the scalp should be clean and less oily, but the hair should be nurtured and nourished to prevent dry-split. Anti-oil and nourishment are two opposite effects, can't be done in one time by shampooing. Double-effect or dimethicone shampoo with cleaning and nurture combined harms hair, since conditioner stays on scalp cause abnormal oil secretion. Bacillus detritus over-produces to accelerate dandruff, dermatitis, or even hair loss. Otherwise just do conditioning after shampooing. Almost no dry shampoo can do both cleaning and nurturing at the same time, only Faciano Dry Shampoo does.

When to Use
Postpartum Rest: Better not to wash hair during the Postpartum care month because Chinese medicine practitioners say that shampoos cold substances would penetrate into the pores and cause the lochia can’t be discharged completely and accumulate in the body and flow out very slowly.
Oily hair: Oily scalp and hair people usually shampoo every day but very envious of whoever wash every two or three days. Daily water shampooing makes hair much oilier. The best way is to use dry shampoo between washes.
One in the packing list going abroad: If you live in a place without hot water or hair dryer, or if you go abroad and schedule keeps you too busy to wash hair.
Menstrual Period: Any women have the symptoms like headache, dizziness, and less blood during period. This is the same reason as Postpartum Rest Care. Cold water makes menstrual blood not smoothly discharged. Some women stop bleeding when water washing hair during menstrual period.
Hiking: Hair dryer is hard to bring for hiking. There are more important stuffs to carry with, definitely not hair dryer. Maybe even no clean water to wash hair.
Camping: Same, more to carry with, not hair dryer. And it’s not super convenient to shower and shampoo at the camping site.
Barbecue, KTV, night club, bar, smoking area, hair smelly: Use dry shampoo to cover up the odor of no shampooing, and get rid of troublesome water washing.
Dating or Meetup: Going for a date after work or meet up customers, but no time to style oily itchy hair.
Busy: Just being too busy to wash hair.
Sickness, Surgery: Wounds near head can’t get in touch with water. Can't get up or no energy to wash hair, and no nurse to take care of.
Too cold, too hot: The weather is too cold to stop you washing hair, or too hot that you have to wash daily or even more than once daily. Suitable for lazy homebodies.
Styling: Quickly style hair, but styling products hurt the hair. When the hair is messy, usually use hair dew; flat hair, use hair spray; deformation, use styling dew to get the hair hard but not easy to comb. These styling products do not have the function of healthy nourishing hair and only create hair deteriorated. However, Faciano Dry Shampoo can style and nourish hair at the same time.
Working Out, Gym: The sweat on the head is mixed with oily smell after working out, but no time and not healthy to shower and shampooing right after working out.
After Dye: Being afraid of the hair color fading.
