Dry Shampoo is a great option for those days where you are running late, don’t want to shower or need a quick fix. I like to make my own recipes using natural ingredients found in my kitchen cabinet.
A Dry shampoo is a water-free product that is designed to absorb excess oil in the hair. Once absorbed, all you have to do is brush or blot out the mixture, and you are ready to go. Here’s the deal, you can go to the store spend a good amount of money on dry shampoo, but these, almost always, contain harsh chemicals. I recommend making your own of normal house hold items. These natural ingredients, located right in your kitchen pantry, provide the same results and are better for your hair and scalp.
My Favorite Dry Shampoo Recipes:
Flour: Flour, by it’s self is very absorbent, and can be sprinkled at the roots for blonds. If you have darker hair, try a darker powder instead, such as cocoa powder. Once applied, comb the flour through to evenly distribute. Allow to sit for 3 minutes and then shake the flour out while tousling your hair with your fingers. Your can also softly blow dry, to get the excess flour out!
Flour + Baking Soda: The addition of baking soda to the flour makes a more powerful mixture. Use this if you have excessive oil build up, because flour may not be strong enough!
Baby Powder: Baby Powder absorbs excess oils great and also provides a nice fragrance.
Baking Powder: Baking Powder absorbs the oil very effectively but has been known to cause dry hair! Use sparingly and only if necessary.
Corn Starch: Apply cornstarch to your roots, blend through and leave in for 2 minutes. Then brush the remaining out.
Cornmeal & Salt: Combine 1 Tbsp. salt and 1/2 cup of cornmeal in a shaker (such as a salt and pepper), shake over root area, once oil and dirt are absorbed (approx 2 min.), brush mixture out.
So if you are experiencing one of these days where you need a quick fix, go into your kitchen grab a few ingredients and let the magic begin!
Note: You can store these ingredients in a empty spice shaker or left over Parmesan Cheese container, this way you can just shake it over your hair as needed.
