We believe Nilaqua is the best alternative to traditional bathing as it allows you to wash from head to toe without water! Yet is kind and gentle to skin and can be used for long term use, leaving you clean and refreshed.
How to Use Waterless Products?
At Waterless we often get asked if the Towel Off™ range of products are dry shampoos, which they aren’t, but they do have all the speed and convenience of a DRY SHAMPOO – yet they are liquids and have all the cleaning power of a traditional shampoo!
It wets your hair, but doesn’t need any water or rinsing. Dirt is lifted into the lather which is removed from your hair with a towel.
They leave NO sticky residues and you won’t believe how well they work.
Apply the liquid directly and generously to the area, massage to lift dirt and grease, then remove by thoroughly towel drying . Grease and dirt are lifted into the lather and removed with the towel (so the towelling is important).
There is simply nothing on the market that even comes close to the original and the best waterless shampoo available.
Nilaqua is for anyone who experiences bathing difficulties. In particular:
- Dementia – In the later stages of Dementia and Alzheimer’s patients often become scared and confused, lashing out when forced to bath, which increases manual handling risks and is highly distressing for all involved. Choose Nilaqua which allows you to wash during daily routines from the comfort of your bed or chair. TOP PICK – Shampoo, as it prevents liquid falling over the patients face!
