National Dry Shampoo Day

National Dry Shampoo Day is a holiday that’s observed annually on March 10th. Although many people think of dry shampoo as a modern product, it’s actually something that was first used in Asia during the 15th century. Dry shampoos were also used by courtesans during the 18th century.

This form of shampoo was a dry starch that was used to clean the wigs that were commonly worn at the time. During the 19th century, dry shampoos became a commercially available product that busy people could use to keep their hair clean while they’re on the run. So, let us all take a moment to observe this holiday and spread some love for dry shampoos.

He wanted to create a Pure Botanical Care product that people could rely on. In 1972, they would release their line of dry shampoos. After they created this holiday, they pick a theme every year to give the holiday a basis upon which it can be observed.
