This shampoo comes in an aerosol can, which is in powder form and is used without water. It is usually made with corn or rice starch, which soaks up the greasiness on the scalp and makes your hair look fresh. All you need to do is spray and let the powder work its magic. As it is a powder, it makes your hair look dull, with its white colour.

How to apply?
When spraying, keep one finger distance from your scalp, this way the shampoo with spread evenly. Also, don't apply directly to the head. Apply it section by section and spray on the root area. Lastly, massage the product into the scalp and wait for a few minutes and brush it through to get rid of the residue.
How to choose?
There's a lot to choose from. These shampoos come in a lot of variety for every hair texture. From scented to volume-enhancer, you can also invest in coloured shampoo to match your hair colour.
How often can you use it?

Is it safe?
The shampoo is safe to use. However, overusing the shampoo can lead to product-build up and make your hair too dry.

Over-use of the shampoo can leave a residue behind, which can also affect the facial skin.
