How long does a shampoo powder last?

Making the switch to a powder-based shampoo from liquid shampoo can be a bit daunting. We completely get it, especially as this is a new innovative format (we are the first to bring our waterless powder concentrates to Australasia!)

There are a lot of misconceptions or questions out there about shampoo powders. For example, one of the most asked questions we get is ‘How long does a shampoo powder last?’. This is closely followed by ‘’ Does it foam’’ and ‘’ Is it safe for coloured hair?’’

These last two questions are nice and easy to answer! Yes, our powder-based shampoo foams (and without any soap!), and yes, our shampoo powders are indeed safe for color-treated hair.  Did we also mention we won a few awards? 


When it comes to how long a shampoo powder lasts, however, the answer gets a little trickier as it depends on how often you wash your hair & how much shampoo you’ll use in each wash.

How long does a Dust&Glow powder-based shampoo last? 

One Dust&Glow powder shampoo is 100% waterless and in powder form. It is equivalent in concentration to 3 bottles of liquid shampoo and lasts over 60 washes on average.  

Our salon quality shampoo powders are highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. You only need ¼ teaspoon for short to medium hair & up to ½  teaspoon for longer hair. 

While a shampoo bottle should last over 60 washes, some of our customers have told us their bottle has lasted longer than a year! On average our Dust&Glow customers use their bottle across a 12 to 16 weeks period. And for the Powder-based  conditioner, it would last even longer!

The biggest tip to keep your Dust&Glow powders dry in the shower

Keep your bottles away from direct water contact & ensure you put the lid back on!  That’s it. There is no need for any special storage, containers or complicated tricks.

If your shaker lid is starting to clog up a bit, take it out of the shower, clean the lid & let it air dry. Put it back on once fully dry. Et voila!
