Dry Shampoos are bad for your hair

... Josh Rosebrook/MBG:

Using Dry shampoo regularly as “shampoo” really won’t support keeping your locks full, thick and healthy in the long term.Oil, dirt and pollution accumulate naturally on a daily basis and need to be removed from the scalp and hair so the follicle remains clear, balanced, breathing and growing. But dry shampoos don't remove impurities — they only smother the follicle in the interim. Attempting to mask dirt and pollution with a dry shampoo only adds more grime and oil to your scalp and hair: like attracts like, so that build up you're adding to with dry shampoo is only going to get worse.

The point of dry shampoo is to absorb excess oil, but just like on the rest of your body, your scalp and hair needs oil.  So when you apply dry shampoo, it sucks up any oil on your head but it also stays put, leaving a dry shampoo/oil combination to sit on your follicle and, over time, sink in.After a while, the buildup of this combo will be so severe that it'll completely clog the follicle, leading to possible hair loss and ultimately stunting growth.

Even if you're using a natural, non-toxic dry shampoo, you're still doing damage. Yes, natural is better for many reasons, but it's still not "healthy" for the follicle or hair shaft in the longterm. 

Hair needs to be replenished and moisturized daily to maintain optimal balance, and water is the best way to do this. Dirty hair covered in dust and pollution (and dry shampoo!) doesn't reflect light and shine like clean, hydrated, well-moisturized hair.
