Is Powder Shampoo Better Than Liquid Shampoo? Everything You Need to Know

Is Powder Shampoo Better Than Liquid Shampoo? Everything You Need to Know

Listen, we totally get it. When you’ve been using liquid shampoo for most of your life, the idea of switching to a powder shampoo might seem a bit daunting. You might wonder if it will work or if it will be just another product that disappoints. Let's break down some common questions and misconceptions about powder shampoo and show you why it’s a game-changer for your hair and the planet!


Powder Shampoos Are Too Complicated to Use

Switching to powder shampoo has its perks. Say goodbye to fumbling with slippery bottles and dealing with messy spills in your shower or travel bag. But what’s it actually like to use powder shampoo? It may seem intimidating at first, but it’s actually quite simple.

Start with wet hair, as you would with liquid shampoo. Sprinkle a small amount of powder into your palm, add a bit of water to create a lather, and then apply it directly to your hair. Massage the lather into your scalp and hair, just like you would with any other shampoo. Rinse thoroughly and enjoy the clean, fresh feeling.

Like any new routine, getting used to powder shampoo takes a bit of practice. But once you get the hang of it, you'll find it just as easy—if not easier—than using liquid shampoo.

Powder Shampoos Don't Lather Well

Not true at all! While some people believe that more lather means a better clean, that’s not necessarily the case. Dust&Glow’s powder shampoo uses gentle, natural ingredients to effectively cleanse your hair without stripping it of its natural moisture.  We also use a sulphate-free surfactant that is palm-oil free and derived from Coconut. It is also really gentle and suitable for baby shampoos!

Our formula lathers up beautifully, providing a rich, creamy foam that cleanses deeply. Whether you have fine, oily hair or thick, dry hair, our powder shampoo offers a satisfying lather that leaves your hair feeling fresh and clean.

Powder Shampoos Will Dry Out My Hair

A high-quality powder shampoo, like Dust&Glow, won’t dry your hair out. In fact, our powder shampoos are packed with conditioning and nourishing ingredients such as soy protein, coconut, and a pre & probiotic complex. These ingredients help to hydrate and nourish your hair, leaving it soft, shiny, and healthy.

The biggest misconception about shampoo powders is that they are the same as soap bars, which can be drying. However, Dust&Glow’s powder shampoo is pH-balanced and free from soap, ensuring it’s gentle on your hair and scalp. We have also added a pre & probiotic complex in all our formulas to support scalp care.


Powder Shampoos Will Make My Shower Messy

On the contrary, many of our customers love how tidy their showers are without bulky bottles taking up space. Powder shampoo comes in compact, eco-friendly packaging that reduces clutter and waste.
