ISO: 'Dry' shampoo recommendation

Posted by bamasue (My Page) on

Looking for a brand name recommendation for a male. Would prefer it be scent-free and just do a good job of cleaning. I am my husband's caregiver. He is wheelchair bound and it is becoming increasingly difficult to shampoo his hair. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might check at a pharmacy, beauty supply store, medical supply place. Does he keep it short? How often do you have to wash his hair? Look also in the baby area.

I've used the brand No-Rinse Shampoo for my mother-in-law. Very easy to use - just lather and towel dry. It does have a slight scent but it is a clean scent rather than a perfume scent.

Thank you both so much for responding. He does have short hair (I'm his barber, as well) and I have generally shampooed his hair once a week the traditional way. However, his neuropathy is beginning to further weaken his back muscles to the point that his upper torso is not as stable as it once was. So, I was thinking that a dry shampoo for alternate weeks might be helpful. I will look for the No-Rinse brand, squirrelspur, and thank you!
