These Are the Best All-Natural Dry Shampoos

By

Ah, dry shampoo. In today’s day and age, many of us have come to rely on the stuff. It keeps our hair smelling fresh and looking just-washed, even when in reality, it’s a greasy mess that hasn’t been shampooed in three days. 

But traditional dry shampoos are kind of lame for a myriad of reasons; many of them come in aerosol cans (not good), don’t offer recyclable packaging, and are laden with harsh chemicals and toxins. To score a dry shampoo that is both all-natural and zero-waste is somewhat of a one-sided scavenger hunt. But you’re in luck: If you’re looking for an alternative to the conventional stuff, there are some all-natural dry shampoos either on the market or lurking in your food pantry that work well, without hurting you or the environment.

Fat and the Moon is a zero-waste beauty and skincare company that makes everything from toiletries and first aid products to makeup and face masks. Their Lavender & Cocoa Dry Shampoo is totally organic and features only four ingredients: cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, kaolin clay, and lavender essential oil.

The starch and clay work together to absorb excess hair oils and the cocoa adds a bit of color that’s ideal for people with darker hair. You won’t find any aluminum or other nasty additives and chemicals here and in the dry shampoo world, that’s refreshing.

A quick note on their packaging: It does appear to be packaged at least partially in plastic — black plastic, which is one of the worst kinds of plastic there is as it is seldom recyclable. However, the label looks to be made out of paper. Buy it here.
