Beauty Product: DIY X Dry Shampoo

DIY Dry Shampoo for Light Hair

 1/4 cup Arrowroot or cornstarch

An old make-up brush (optional)

5 drops of essential oils (optional)

What to do: 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.

DIY Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 tablespoons arrowroot or corn starch

5 drops of essential oils (optional)

An old makeup brush to apply (optional)

What to do: Mix the cocoa powder, arrowroot/cornstarch and essential oils (if using). Store in a small jar or old powder container and apply with the make-up brush. Comb through hair and style as usual.

DIY 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 (what I use is from here)

Essential oils or a spritz of your favorite perfume to scent

What to do: 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.
