I don’t know about you all, but I think washing your hair every single day is quite a hassle and leaves your hair looking dull. I’ve been told a bunch that you should wash your hair only 2-3 times per week so that you don’t accidently get rid of the good oil/nutrients that your hair naturally produces. This would be easy for me except the fact that my long, wavy hair prefers to get oily and flat in a short amount of time.
After experimenting with some store-bought dry shampoos, I realized that I could make my own with a few ingredients lying around my house. I love the way this DIY Dry Shampoo lifts up my roots and allows me to go for a longer time without washing my hair. Let me know if this DIY helps you keep your hair looking healthy and fresh for a longer period of time!
You will need: Cocoa powder, Corn Starch, Essential Oil (optional)
*If you have dark hair: use 2 parts cocoa powder, 1 part cornstarch
*If you have light/blonde hair, you can omit the cocoa powder, and just use the cornstarch and a few drops of your favorite essential oil!
1. Mix all ingredients and combine well.
2. Store in a small container and apply with a makeup brush or sprinkle through hair and comb.
