A woman from Missouri says a bottle of dry shampoo exploded in her daughter's car after it was left there on a hot day and blown through the sunroof before landing at about 50 feet.

Christine Debrecht of St. Louis placed pictures on her Facebook page on Thursday with the damage in the car of her 19-year-old daughter Josie.

"It was hot yesterday and the can exploded," wrote Debrecht on her Facebook page.

& # 39; It blew the console cover off its hinges, shot through the sunroof, and went high enough in the air to land about 50 feet away.

"Do not leave aerosols (and especially dry shampoo, as this seems to be a problem with some brands) in your car!

"I am so grateful that no one was hurt."

Equate, once an independent brand, was taken over by Walmart, where it is now sold.

According to the product page on the Walmart website, Equate's dry shampoo contains ingredients such as propane, butane, isobutane, chloride and phenethyl alcohol.

The green bottle that can be seen in Debrecht's Facebook post contains a label warning for its "extremely flammable" nature.

"Container can explode if heated" is stated in the warning on the spray can.

Propane and butane are chemicals that act as propellants – meaning they help push away the liquids stored in a spray can.

When heated, these chemicals become extremely flammable.
