Washing your hair every day can be drying to the scalp and washes away beneficial oils that keep hair supple and healthy. Besides being undesirable from a hair-health standpoint, washing each time your hair feels tangled and flat is sometimes just plain inconvenient.
For those in-between times, a dry shampoo powder is an alternative that doesn't dry out the scalp and gives volume to fine, flat hair. It's also useful for times when a shampoo isn't possible or practical, like a refresh after a workout or when you're camping.
This hair powder is safe and natural, and it absorbs well, which is the reason why some people prefer powder to creams and sprays. It doesn't leave a white residue or, like baby powder (which contains talc), make hair look grey.
For those who color/blow-dry their hair, dry hair powder is a good way to reduce the damage that comes from frequent washing, accompanied by frequent heat styling.
Every batch of hair powder is currently made by hand, bottled in 100% glass bottles right in Brooklyn. This company, which is the same company of the men's line Alder New York, firmly believes that a product that's going on in your skin should be safe enough to eat. There's no reason a chemical would be harmful to ingest, but safe enough to put on your body.
Take about a teaspoonful in your palm (for thicker hair, use a bit a tablespoon) and rub it through the roots. Then, run a brush through hair to distribute. Your hair will be left fresher and fuller.
For best results, keep the bottle out of direct sunlight and keep the cork on when not using. When traveling, be sure and keep the bottle somewhere safe so it won't crack or break.
The dry hair powder is made of kaolin clay, rice powder, organic horsetail powder, and essential oils, all of which are sourced from Thailand and the USA.
The dry powder is mixed by hand in small batches. The finished batch is put into 100% recycled glass bottles.
All steps of the product manufacturing are done right here in Brooklyn, by Alder New York.
The makers, in an effort to support and work with local initiatives, are part of the Pratt Design Incubator for Sustainable Innovation and Social Enterprise.
