Why Dry Shampoo?
What's the point of using dry shampoo? Check out these awesome benefits:
Wash less. Don't worry about greasy-looking hair if you don't shampoo every day! The cornstarch in your dry shampoo will soak up the oil and dirt from your hair, leaving it looking ahhhhmazing!
Save time. By washing your hair less, you're saving tons of time!
Volumize. Without buying into expensive gimmicks and products, you can volumize your hair in a jiffy with dry shampoo! Keep it on hand for styling.
It's organic. No aluminum and parabens – which means your hair will be thanking you.
Purchasing commercial dry shampoos can get expensive – fast. Plus, they can also contain ingredients that have no place in your hair! Making your own DIY Dry Shampoo will save you money, and is much better for your beautiful locks.
How to Make Dry Shampoo
DIY Dry Shampoo Ingredients:
- 1/4 cup Arrowroot (or cornstarch)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (for dark hair)
It's only two (or three) ingredients! Just mix them together. It's that simple!
Store your dry shampoo in a small jar, and apply it to the roots of your hair with an old makeup brush. You don't have to use a makeup brush, but I like to because then I don't have to work as hard to comb it through my hair when I style it.
Dry Shampoo Tips & Tricks:
Scent your dry shampoo with dried lavender or rose petals. Keep the mix in a sealed-up jar for at least a week to get the scent mixed well.
You can also make your hair smell nice by filling a spritz bottle with water, and adding a few drops of essential oil. After you've used your dry shampoo, spritz your hair with the essential oil mixture.
Try wheat flour as a volumizer by adding it to your dry shampoo (or replacing the arrowroot with the flour).
