Dry Shampoo Can Cause Hair Loss And Make You Bald

Dry shampoo is many a girls' secret beauty weapon, but some hairdressers and trichologists are warning against overusing it.

If left on too long, the oil-absorbing powder can dry out your hair and give you an itchy, flaky scalp along with pimples, sores and hair loss -including bald patches.

That's because dry shampoo isn't actually designed to be used every day as an alternative to washing, although many of us do use it that way.
