Dry Shampoo Might Be Bad For You And I Feel So Attacked

According to a new reported piece from Refinery 29, everything is terrible and dry shampoo might be messing up  your hair.

Beauty editor Maria Del Russo spoke to a dermatologist, who apparently wants me personally to start washing my hair more than once a week.

When you’re cleansing, you’re removing dead skin, germs, and bacteria,” Dr. Francesca Fusco said. “You’re exfoliating [your scalp], and it’s healthier when you exfoliate. When you’re using dry shampoo every day, it builds up, and it eventually dulls the hair.”

Ken Anderson, founder and director of the Anderson Hair Sciences Center, also told Russo it’s a myth that “cleansing your scalp” (read: shampooing) super often is bad.

The takeaway here is probably that we should use dry shampoo less or at least in moderation, and the counterpoint is: Washing my hair is so annoying. Please leave me alone, thanks.
