Before going through the ingredient list in more details, let us first share our natural dry shampoo recipe below:

-1 sugar shaker (you can find these in stores that sell kitchen appliances and accessories!)

sugar shaker

-1 cup of arrow root (or 1 cup of rice powder, both help absorb sebum from your hair and roots)

– 5 drops of ylang ylang essential oil (ylang is excellent for your scalp and is used to encourage hair growth)

-1  natural wild boar hair brush

Our technique:

Lightly dust your scalp with your homemade powder and massage it through with clean fingers. Finish by brushing it off with your natural wild boar brush and style your hair as usual.



Now to the not so pleasant ingredient review! Here is the detailed formula review of Batiste dry shampoo the original :

- Butane

Classified as  a Human irritant - strong evidence (only for products for use around the eyes, on the skin, or may be aerosolized.


according to ewg, Isobutane is classified as expected to be toxic or harmful. It is causes irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs). It is a strong human irritant

-Oriya sativa rice starch

Rice powder so this is THE natural ingredient in Batiste dry shampoo formula.


Causing Human Allergies/immunotoxicity  

-Alcohol denat:

 According to some scientific studies and detailed on the EWG reviews, this substance presents limited evidence of reproductive toxicity, limited evidence of developmental toxicity, Cancer 


Recommended restricted in cosmetics - use, concentration, or manufacturing restrictions - Fragrance subject to restrictions: safe only if satisfies manufacturing specifications or purity limits. Numerous scientific studies show that linalool is a substance which can cause allergies, irritations and eczema.


Same as's a synthetized substance that can cause severe allergies.

-Benzoyl benzoate

As the 2 ingredients above benzyl benzoate is a synthetized ingredient. Benzyl Benzoate is a natural component of cinnamon essential oil. This chemical is also used to kill head lice and is associated with a variety of adverse effects, including burning and itching of the skin, formation of blisters, crusting or scaling of the skin, sudden loss of consciousness. 


Is a synthetic substance that causes irritation and allergies, itching and comedogenic. 

-Cetrimonium chloride

Is a chemical synthetized substance used in cosmetic formulas to help prevent static electricity. So it helps to make hair looks smooth ans soft, however, ewg is classifying the substance as toxic to human skin. 

One last thing which is worth mentioning and which some of you may have noticed on bottles of Batiste Dry Shampoo, the little symbol and warning which reads "solvent abuse kill instantly"... Pretty scary stuff. Now we know the intent of Dry Shampoo is not to inhale it every morning to get high but for those of you who often use dry shampoo, you know that when you spray this stuff on your head, there is no way you won't breathe some of this stuff in.

Hope you have enjoyed this week's challenge and as always if you have any questions or comments please use the comment section below.

Lots of Love
