No one wants to wash and style their hair daily. Even every few days can seem like a lot—which is exactly why dry shampoo became so popular. It was developed as the perfect remedy for oily roots when your style still has a day or two left in it. But recent recalls have called the safety of dry shampoos into question.
A known carcinogen, Benzene, was discovered in 70 per cent of the dry shampoos tested in a recent independent lab study in the United States. The amount of this cancer-causing substance varied from brand to brand, but some samples of air contaminated with sprayed dry shampoo contained 170 times the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved limit. Regular exposure to benzene is associated with leukemia and other cancers. Even short-term exposure is known to cause headache, nausea and drowsiness, among other unpleasant symptoms.
Needless to say, finding a dry shampoo that is functional and healthy should be at the top of your priority list. Not all hair care and beauty products are created equal. At Manzer, we focus on purchasing and selling only high-quality, environmentally sustainable and non-toxic products. This includes dry shampoo that can have you going from greasy to gorgeous in no time.

How to Apply
The last thing you want is a visible powder finish. Dry shampoo doesn’t go on like hair spray. There’s a technique to it.
Step 1. Shake the Can to mix the product with the propellant.
Step 2. Separate your hair into sections, parting your hair in a few places on the top of your head.
Step 3. Spray in small, gentle spritzes rather than one consistent spray. Spritz multiple times across each part.
Step 4. Wait for the products to settle for a few minutes.
Step 5. Use a dry towel or a brush to remove the product from the hair by rubbing the part or brushing the hair to pull the oil out of the hair.
