DIY Dry Shampoo

Cornstarch DIY Dry Shampoos for Dark & Light Hair

"Your cupboards hold everything you need to make your own dry shampoo," reveals Mercedes Parrilli, international artist for George the salon Chicago. "Grab cornstarch, which is more natural compared to baby powder and baking soda, and it is oil absorbing."

Brunettes = Mix Cornstarch + Cocoa Powder

If you have darker hair, mix unsweetened cocoa powder with cornstarch.

Redheads = Mix Cornstarch + Cinnamon

If you're a redhead, use cinnamon with cornstarch equal parts.

Blondes = Mix Cornstarch + Essential Oil

If you have light colored hair, mix cornstarch with an essential oil of your choice for fragrance.

Once mixed, apply with a large cosmetic brush or put into a salt shaker and apply to roots. After application, rub in really well to absorb oil and style accordingly.

Making your own natural dry shampoo is inexpensive and you avoid hazardous chemicals. Dry shampoo made at home is fast acting and your hair will feel, look and smell amazing. Using dry shampoo the second or third day of not washing your hair saves time while keeping your hair looking great. But, it is also important to cleanse your scalp regularly. Cleansing the scalp keeps hair follicles stimulated for healthy hair growth.
