Homemade Dry shampoo for those days you don't want to wash your hair!
By kimberleypatterson on May 30, 2014
Do you ever feel like you have those days where you don't want to wash your hair, but you have a little too much oil at the scalp? Or maybe, you have really fine hair and just need a little more volume?
Enter dry shampoo.
A dry shampoo is typically a powder, or sometimes a spray, that will basically absorb some of the oil and act like a temporary "shampoo" for your hair. The problem is that some leaves residue in your hair, all of them have chemicals, and for a good one they aren't exactly cheap.
Enter your kitchen products.
By using just one, or maybe two products you probably have in your kitchen, you can make your very own dry shampoo that's healthy, works, smells great and is a fraction of the cost.
Cornstarch (not cornmeal) can be used on lighter hair colors by placing a small amount in your palm and applying into the roots. I used to have an issue with cornstarch because I have dark hair, and then I would be able to see it.
If you have dark hair, use an equal combination of cornstarch and cocoa powder. The cocoa powder makes it smell amazing, and the white, ashy look of the cornstarch is not visible at all.
Try it out, please let me know your thoughts!
