Questions & Answers for ALTERNA Haircare Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo in Bamboo Leaf Scent

Is the aerosol bottle an oxymoron??
I am becoming more environmentally conscious and am also becoming an Alterna fan because it is a natural product. I'm looking for a product that can be taken on backpacking trips (can't waste drinking water on my hair). Is this an environmentally safe product?

Try a travel size container of baby powder - It's what everyone used before there was dry shampoo - no aerosol - light weight in back pack - trusted to use on babies' skin - re-cyclable container. Looks white for awhile - but rub in scalp and brush.

These are not the aerosol cans/sprays of yesterday. These are not even aerosol, they work by pressure, sorry I can't explain it as well as my BF did for me but I too asked the same question

Does this work on bleached hair?
I am a medium natural blonde but get my color lifted to almost platinum. Hence, I don't have a problem with oily hair. My hair is very porous from the chemicals so I'm wondering if this would benefit me at all? I have fine thin hair so I do use products to boost volume that buildup and require washing (still fairly infrequently though). Have any other blondes used this with success?

I'm a natural blonde, though not as light as you are describing. In my experience, I have sprayed my newly clean (not oily) hair at night before bed, and the product definitely gave me some lift in the morning. Would would best with up-do.

I don't see any reason this would not work on your hair. I have my hair hilighted and the roots lightened every 6-8 weeks. I've been highlighting my hai from light brown to a golden blonde for years and have been using many dry shampoos, but do prefer this Alterna.

I also have blonde hair. Product works great, no residue or trace of evidence you have used this. Also does a great cleaning for one more day before washing.

No, but I do have pin-straight red hair and this works perfectly. Everything seems to show up, product-wise, in red and black hair the most. Hope this helps!
