I have never bought dry shampoos before. Whenever my hair felt greasy, I would just dust some talc powder for those emergency circumstances.
So when I was browsing the Bon organics Instagram page, I found this organic dry shampoo and decided to give it a try.

Directly sprinkle generously/required quantity onto oily/unwashed hair & rub gently until powder is no more visible. Your hair will gain immediate volume & shine just like washed fresh hair!
You don’t have to wash it off, just leave it on. If you get some on your cheeks, rub it in like talcum powder, its safe!
My Experience Using Bon Organics Dry Shampoo:
Unlike most dry shampoos that come in aerosol spray cans, this comes in a powder form with a slightly grainy consistency as compared to talc powder. I am not a fan of the packaging and wish it came in twist cap bottles like the talc powder.
You need to squeeze the bottle to dispense the product in hand. On my first use, I squeezed it directly on hair and it dispensed too much in excess leaving a white cast.
So the best way to use this is to squeeze some out in a bowl and apply evenly using a fluffy makeup brush. I need roughly ½ teaspoon of it on my 3rd or 4th-day hair.
It does reduce oiliness to quite an extent giving some volume in hair but can leave a slight white cast if used in excess. Since all dry shampoos do that it not much of a con. The 30 ml bottle can give you 9-10 uses easily.
This dry shampoo is cheaper compared to the both Bblunt and Batiste dry shampoos available in similar sizes. Also, the latter two dry shampoos contain alcohol in them while the Bon organics dry shampoo is completely organic.
I haven’t used the Batiste dry shampoo but I did use the Bblunt once and it performed similarly to the Bon organics one. The clear winner for me among all three is definitely the Bon Organics dry shampoo.
- All organic ingredients
- No Alcohol or artificial fragrance
- Absorbs oil well and adds some volume to hair
- Small size is easy for carrying around
- Cheaper than other dry shampoos
- Vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly
- USDA certified
- Packaging could be better
Bon organics dry shampoo is definitely the only one of its kind in the market. I am not sure about the world but it is definitely India’s first handmade and organic dry shampoo.
The packaging is not something I like so I will transfer this to a small jar for future use. If you are looking for a good dry shampoo without any nasty chemicals, definitely, try this one.
What are your thoughts on organic dry shampoos? Have you used one? I would love to hear about your experience.
