OWA Haircare Hair Wash Review

This Water-Activated Shampoo Saves You Time Packing AND Saves the Planet

OWA Haircare Hair Wash Review

Did you know the shampoo in your shower #shelfie is made up of 80 percent water on average? That's like buying a bag of chips from the vending machine to find it's filled with 50 percent air — ugh.

Owa Haircare Hair Wash is an alternative to the traditional wasteful liquid shampoo. The powdered shampoo is free of water and all that other fluff, like sulfates, parabens, silicones, synthetic color, and artificial fragrance, and is made with naturally derived vegan and cruelty-free ingredients. Not to be confused with dry shampoo, the powder product is activated with water to wash your hair like regular ol' liquid shampoo.

In addition to being eco-friendly, Owa Hair Wash is suitcase-friendly: the waterless shampoo formula solves the issue of traveling with tiny TSA-approved liquids in your carry-on and the inconvenience of those heavy bottles that didn't make the cut in your checked baggage.

Ahead, read how to shampoo your hair with Owa in three easy steps and our review of the product.
