What is Dry Shampoo:
Dry shampoo has been around for years. I think of it as a must have miracle product. It is a powder base, usually made some a type of cornstarch, that absorbs the excess oils and cleans your hair without water. Yes, stars use it too.
2 tbsp. Corn Starch
2 tbsp. Baking Soda
2 tbsp. Arrowroot Powder
10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
(Those that have dark hair should add 2 tablespoons of coco powder to the mixture above.)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a spoon/whisk until well blended.
Keep a small about on hand in a small container (similar to a salt shaker) and store the rest in an airtight container
Place a very generous amount throughout your hair
Wait two minutes and comb through hair. Combing will pull the dirt and oil.
My Experience with Dry Shampoo:
The cheap brands usually leave my hair feeling distrusting and like I have something caked it in. You can buy some good salon brands, but will be spending upwards to $30+…and I only get about 6 uses out of a can. Others I have heard choose to use baby powder, but the scent of a fresh baby powder is then hovering over their shoulders all day.
I like this recipe because it is easy to make and it actually works. My hair does not feel caked and I will continue to use this when I need to freshen up quickly.
** For best results, switch off days between dry shampoo and SLS Free Shampoo. **
