Dry shampoo is becoming more and more popular due to its easy application and benefits. And I can totally get why this is so popular because I am also in need of it. It is an incredible innovative beauty product that makes your hair cleaner and voluminous. Personally, I like to use it because I have an oily scalp and I cannot wash my hair every day. Thus, if you also have some issues with greasy hair and oily scalp, I strongly recommend this because it is also natural. Keep reading and see how to make your own DIY dry shampoo for light and dark hair.
This would be exceptionally great when you are switching the shampoos or if you’re trying new treatments. Because it can take about a week until your scalp adapts to its new treatment, it can get quite oily. That’s way, using a dry shampoo can help you in the long run. And as I have mentioned, my scalp is naturally oily so you can imagine what a huge fan I am when it comes to dry shampoo.
If you haven’t used one before, the basic idea of a dry shampoo is that it acts like a powder absorbing anything oily from your hair. Hence, if you haven’t washed your hair in 2-3 days, the dry shampoo will leave it looking clean. It also amazingly if you want something to hold your hair when you are styling it. However, I don’t like the commercial products. Besides being too pricey for me, they also have chemicals and I am not trying to burn my hair. Thus, I made my own recipe a while ago and never looked back.
Here it is, the best recipe for the DIY dry shampoo that has worked for me so far:
The ingredients you will need are:
– 1/4 cup arrowroot powder for light hair or 2 tablespoons arrowroot and 2 tablespoons cocoa powder for dark hair
– 5 drops of lavender essential oil
– A makeup brush to apply it
Let’s begin. Put the powder in a small bowl and then add the drops of lavender essential oil. Mix all the ingredients very well with a spoon and then store it in a small jar, I prefer an old powder container. To apply this, all you have to do is use the makeup brush, dip it in the dry shampoo and apply it to your roots. Make sure you don’t go overboard with it. Do yourself a nice relaxing scalp massage to get the powder all over your oily areas and you’re all set.
