How many washes can I expect to get from one bottle of Hair Wash?
One bottle of Hair Wash is the equivalent of 4 bottles of standard liquid shampoo.
A standard bottle of shampoo is 8oz. Our bottle of shampoo is half of that size and gets you 4 bottles worth of product.
If you use one tablespoon (0.5 oz) of liquid shampoo each time you wash your hair, you will get about 60 washes from a single bottle of Hair Wash. That’s assuming you get 15 washes from an 8oz bottle of shampoo. If you get more than 15 washes from an 8oz bottle of shampoo, you can assume you’ll get more than 60 washes from a bottle of Hair Wash.
What does Moondust Collection: Hair Wash smell like?
The Moondust Collection carries its own signature scent which is a blend of essential oils and flower extracts. The fragrance was designed specifically for OWA, so you won’t smell anything else like it! It’s a unisex scent, so it isn’t particularly feminine or masculine. It’s gender neutral, like the product itself! The most common descriptor of the fragrance we get is “clean.”
How does Hair Wash differ from a dry shampoo?
Hair Wash and dry shampoo in a powder format are completely different chemistries. Hair Wash is truly a shampoo, that functionally cleans your hair. Dry shampoo can be classified as a styling product that makes your hair look and smell clean, but functionally doesn’t do any cleaning. You can read more on our blog here.

How do you stop the powder from ‘clogging up’ in the bottle in a steamy bathroom?
The majority of ingredients in Hair Wash are not hygroscopic, meaning they do not pull moisture from the air. So, Hair Wash doesn’t clog up on it's own.
If water gets in the cap and the cap begins to accumulate powder, we recommend the following. Remove the cap and plug from the bottle, rinse the cap and plug and leave all components disassembled to dry. Need to speed up the drying process? Use a hair dryer to dry the cap and plug. Make sure the cap and plug are completely dry before returning them to the bottle!
Can I pre-mix with water in the bottle?
We don't recommend this. Mixing water with the powder won’t get you a liquid shampoo. The powder works best being activated between wet hands, then used in wet hair with more water. Mixing with water in a bottle and letting it sit over time creates potential for bacteria, yeast and mold to grow. Yuck!
