Hair care by the moon is an old practice, and some tales say that even cutting your hair by the moon can grant different effects. Trim on the New Moon and your hair will grow faster. Trim on the Full Moon and your hair will grow thicker and fuller.
This natural dry shampoo blends the amazing properties of our Triple Moon Hair Anointing Oil and our Færie Dust Herbal Hair Conditioner to give you smooth, silky, clean hair without the need for water.
A bed of Organic Orris Root is enhanced with a bouquet of herbal powders and essential oils to clean hair and leave a fresh, herbal scent behind. For those of you familiar with our Triple Moon Anointing Oil, the smell is very similar. The scent straight from the jar may seem very strong, but once used and brushed free of the hair, the sent is faint, sweet, and lingering.
Each batch of Moondust takes a full lunar month to make. Its preparation is started at the Full Moon, the most potent of all lunar phases, and is finished at the next Full Moon.
The glass spice jar has a flip top, one side with holes for shaking, the other larger in case you ever need to extract a larger amount from the jar. Inside is a black nylon screen that helps ensure a fine application of Moondust.
What exactly is a dry shampoo? And why should I use it?
A dry shampoo is a powdered substance used to clean the hair where it isn’t practical or desirable to use water and traditional shampoo. Dry shampoos work by soaking up oil and dirt on the scalp and then both the shampoo and the trapped dirt is brushed out of the hair. Some of the benefits of Moondust include:
- Stretching Washes- Moondust will clean the hair without overstripping the scalp and stimulating it to produce more oil. This lets you go longer in between traditional washes and helps retrain your scalp to produce less oil.
- Preserving Color & Treatments- If you use chemical hair dyes, washing causes the color to fade faster than anything. Dry shampoos remove the oils in your hair, but not the color. Also, if you’ve had a brazilian blowout or a keratin treatment, you’re instructed not to wash your hair for several days. Dry shampoo makes this easy and won’t interfere with your treatment!
- No water needed!- No need to take a lengthy shower just to clean your hair! It’s great for camping, after the gym, or anytime you’re strapped for time, but just need to freshen up your locks.
Storage & Directions
Storage: Store the powder in a cool, dark and dry place.
Directions: Do not use on clean hair. Comb hair until free of tangles. Section hair and lightly sprinkle Moondust as close to the scalp as possible. Gently work through hair near the scalp with fingers. Let sit 15 minutes. Brush Moondust from hair with a boar bristle (or similar) brush. You may choose to cover your brush with cheesecloth to help collect the powder. Repeat if necessary.
