Frequently Asked Questions
If you don't know, now you know.
Showerless Shampoo is a completely new type of product. It was made for the days where your hair is too sweaty for dry shampoo but you don’t have the time to clean your hair in the shower. Our patent-pending spray interacts with your hair so that the dirt and sweat can be towel-dried away leaving you with hair that is actually clean. Since it is a wet product, and sweat is mostly water, your hair will be damp after use. You can air dry it, or quickly blow dry (recommended) excess moisture.
SWAIR’s Showerless Shampoo is different from dry shampoo because it actively removes sweat, dirt and daily grime. Dry Shampoo, on the other hand, may make your hair look cleaner temporarily by adding powder or chemicals to mask the dirt. Unfortunately, the end result is often an itchy scalp or pasty buildup.
Dry shampoo can also strip your hair of its natural oils which affects shine, flexibility and overall hair and scalp health. Showerless Shampoo cleanses your hair with gentle ingredients that help to keep your hair hydrated. It is formulated with your health in mind and free from sulfates, phthalates, parabens, alcohol, glutens, formaldehyde and artificial dyes.
Start with sweaty/dirty hair (do not add any water to your hair before using Showerless Shampoo). Shake the bottle well and hold it 8-10 inches from your scalp. Spray a single layer of fine mist on the top of your hair (2-3 sprays). Then pick up the top half of your hair and spray another layer (2-3 sprays). Finally spray a third layer on the bottom of your hair (2-3 sprays). Comb through to distribute evenly. Then, towel dry thoroughly to remove the dirt/sweat from your hair.
Sometimes it takes a few tries to “perfect” your Showerless Shampoo technique, so don’t worry if you don’t get it right on your first go. Always start with less product, since you can easily add more if needed (especially if you tend to have naturally oily hair).
Showerless Shampoo is gentle enough to be used multiple days in a row. Most of our community shampoos their hair in the shower 1-2x a week and uses Showerless Shampoo on the other days.
Yes! SWAIR’s superpower is cleaning very sweaty hair, but it can still be used to clean the daily grime and environmental pollutants out of non-sweaty hair.
Our formula works on all types of hair, you may need to adjust the amount used depending on the texture or thickness of your hair. We have had amazing reviews from community members with all types of hair, from very fine and straight hair to naturally textured and coily hair.

It's true - Showerless Shampoo works best if you can spray and then towel dry your hair. If a towel dry isn’t possible, you can use a wiping motion to help remove the dirt. Showerless Shampoo is also a great product to rehydrate your curls or refresh your roots.
Yes to all that! Showerless Shampoo is safe on extensions, color, and Keratin.
