The biggest question we get asked is ‘how to use powder shampoo?’. If you’re asking yourself the same thing, look no further…
Powder shampoo is a unique, convenient, and sustainable alternative to traditional liquid shampoos. Named after the powder form of shampoo, which comes from the removal of water in the formula and production, powder shampoo reduces your environmental footprint in three ways:
- Saving clean water, which is a scarce resource that we don’t actually need in a shampoo
- Decreasing your CO2 emissions per wash by transporting only the good stuff when shipping
- Reducing plastic wastage, as the packaging can be made from sustainable, recyclable materials
If you're new to using powder shampoo, you may be wondering how to use powder shampoo properly. We'll walk you through the steps of using powder shampoo to achieve a clean and refreshed scalp and hair, while doing your bit to save the planet.
Step 1: Wet
Before using powder shampoo, it's important to wet your hair thoroughly. This will help to activate the powder and create a lather. Without wetting your hair, the shampoo won’t cleanse properly so this is crucial.
Step 2: Pour
Pour a small amount of powder shampoo either onto your wet palm or sprinkle directly onto your wet scalp and hair. Lathering in your palm first can help to distribute the product more quickly, but this is entirely personal preference - both ways work equally well.
Step 3: Lather
Using your fingers, massage the powder shampoo into your scalp and hair to create a lather. Be sure to massage your scalp well to remove any dirt, styling product, or buildup.
Step 4: Rinse
Once you've lathered your hair and scalp for several minutes (or as long as your particular scalp and hair need - everyone is different!), rinse your hair thoroughly with water, as normal, to remove the powder shampoo.
It is that simple. Wet. Pour. Lather. Rinse.
