3 DIY WAYS TO MIX UP DRY SHAMPOO

reposted from Hello Glow

Everyone knows second-day hair is the best hair—but sometimes it needs a little touch-up (thank you, dry shampoo!) to make it do what you want it to. When researching dry shampoo, I kept coming across the same ingredients over and over again: cornstarch, baking soda and cinnamon. Since you already have these ingredients at home, why not make it yourself?

Depending on your color hair, you can choose the light or dark recipe, or stick with the basic dry shampoo for all your oily-root needs.

Basic Dry Shampoo

  • 1 cup ground oatmeal
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • empty baby powder or spice container

Mix the oatmeal and baking soda together in a bowl thoroughly and then transfer to an empty baby powder or spice container. When you need to skip a wash just sprinkle the dry shampoo on your roots and either brush it out or use a blow dryer and your fingers to work it through.

Dry Shampoo for Light or Dark hair

For Light-Colored Hair

For Dark Hair

  • 1/8 cup cornstarch
  • 1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 drops lavender essential oil
  • empty baby powder or spice container

Instructions

Combine the ingredients above in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Transfer to an empty baby powder or spice container and sprinkle on roots to absorb oil and dirt. Brush the dry shampoo through your hair or use a blow dryer and your fingers to work through your roots.

Do you have any tried-and-true hair remedies that you love?
