So, what is the problem with Benzene? Benzene is labeled a human carcinogen. Exposure to benzene can occur by inhalation, orally, and through the skin and it can result in cancers including leukemia and blood cancer of the bone marrow and blood disorders which can be life-threatening. Yeah, these are not great things to be inhaling on a routine basis!

It is very common for dry shampoos to have flammable ingredients in them like, butane and propane. These are all ingredients that I do not want to spray onto my hair! I would steer towards clean products that are naturally based. You still will get amazing results without all the chemicals! Below are some of the best dry shampoos I have found. My absolute favorite is Monat’s, The Champ. It is free of butane, propane, and benzene.
It is possible to have great hair with clean products you just must do your research. I used to never use dry shampoo, I never understood why to use it, but I do now! Some people use dry shampoo to get a few extra days in-between shampoos, it will absorb the oil in your hair to help freshen it up. Some people will use it as a volumizing agent to help add volume to their hair.
Here is a tip for you!
Try using your dry shampoo the night BEFORE you go to bed. Spray it at your roots like you normally would do in the morning but at night. A lot of people will get amazing results by doing this, lots of extra volume the next day and better second or third day hair. Let me know how it works for you!
