Dry shampoo is a life saver. With more and more information coming out about the benefits of NOT washing your hair every day, dry shampoo is getting more air time than ever before. Dry shampoo is great because it’s an incredible hair care product that allows us to get that freshly washed hair look, even if we haven’t gone through the entire hair washing process. Just like any other type of product that we use in our beauty routine, there are ways the products can become a safety issue if not used correctly. In fact, recent news came out that some women experienced their dry shampoo products exploding. Yes, we said exploding. If you use dry shampoo, make sure you keep reading because we’re sharing some of the very important safety precautions for dry shampoo so you can continue using it-safely.
We don’t mean to cause you stress or major worry, but with the news of women experiencing exploding dry shampoo cans we thought it was important to make sure we give you some of the details. Here’s the deal…dry shampoo products come in aerosol cans. We don’t think about it often but aerosol cans can, well…explode when they’re put under negative pressure. We’re not saying that your dry shampoo products are just going to be exploding non-stop, but they definitely can (and have to some of these women who have reported it) explode in certain environments.
To put it simply, where you’re storing and keeping your dry shampoo products is something that you need to start paying attention to. When aerosol cans are stored in hot conditions, they can explode because of the manner of their state. This being said, it’s important to make sure you’re well aware of where your dry shampoo products are store. Many women tend to carry their dry shampoo products in their gym bag and keep them in their cars throughout the day (their hot cars), which is where many women have recently experienced exploded products to result. So safety precaution number one, make sure you’re avoiding keeping your dry shampoo products in environments that can get very warm.
In addition to the heat, it’s worth noting that aerosol cans are flammable. Similar to hairspray and other types of aerosol products, dry shampoo cans should be kept away from fire, flame and smoke of any kind. When they’re exposed to environments that do consist of these elements, it’s a high risk of explosion that can occur with your dry shampoo.
All in all, we want to stress the importance of being aware of where your dry shampoo products are and what’s around them. We don’t often think about our hair care products and these types of elements but because most dry shampoo products are in aerosol cans, they can cause safety issues when proper precautions aren’t taken into consideration. Fortunately, these should be easy safety measures to take so you can keep yourself safe and continue enjoying your favorite dry shampoo products.
