What is this study about, and what's involved?
This questionnaire is part of an ongoing research project into hairdressing and hair-care practices. The aim of this study is to get independent evidence of the effects of using dry shampoo instead of normal shampoo on hair. To take part in this study it is necessary that you substitute your usual shampoo with dry shampoo at least once, so any differences in hair condition as a result of using dry shampoo can be assessed. There are many formulations of dry shampoo, but the process for each is the same - it is rubbed into the hair and then brushed out. Even corn starch or talcum powder are commonly used. It does not matter what kind you use for this study. 
You may contact Denise Baden if you have any questions or concerns about the study on
