Home Made Natural Dry- Shampoo

I’m sure most of you that are reading this have used dry shampoo, it is surely a life saver for me on the days I don’t wash my hair, getting all the oil out and making my hair look nice and fresh. I started to notice that it was making my hair fall out more than normal. When I read the back of the bottle it said it contained Butane, Isobutane, Propane and in all caps said EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE! Well that definitely got my attention and to why my hair was falling out. I started to research products that I could find that didn’t contain those hazardous products and found Beauty By Earth & Drop Dead Gorgeous Dry Shampoo on Amazon

All these dry- shampoo’s are toxic for your hair!

Then as I was looking more into it I read you can make your very own dry-shampoo at home and is very in expensive!

Dry Shampoo Ingredients/Instructions

1/4 cup arrowroot powder or organic cornstarch OR 2 tablespoons arrowroot/cornstarch and  2 Tablespoons cocoa powder

An old make-up brush to apply

Put the drops of essential oil into the arrowroot or cornstarch and mix with a spoon. Store the mix in a small jar or old powder container.

Apply with an old make-up brush to the roots or oily parts of your hair. Applying with the brush is optional, but it removes the need to comb through as much and is better for styled hair. If you don’t use the brush, comb the powder through your hair and style as usual.

Wet/Dry Spray Shampoo for Light or Dark Hair

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot or cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup vodka, rubbing alcohol or witch hazel
  • Essential oils or a spritz of your favorite perfume to scent

Mix all ingredients in a small spray bottle and shake well. Shake before each use and spray on roots or oily parts of hair. Let dry and style as usual.

And there you have it a very inexpensive way to make your own natural dry shampoo without all the harsh chemicals. Me and my daughter use this and love it!
