This homemade dry shampoo recipe is a great substitute for the aerosol versions if the strong smells bother you, too. I'm not a bit fan of walking around smelling like alcoholic fruit or candy, and I'm sure you're not either. ;)
I've included a homemade dry shampoo recipe for both light and dark hair - it will make enough for tons of uses and you can fit it in a spice jar. And it gives thin, straight hair great texture - it ends up feeling thicker!
Step 1: What you'll need:
- baking soda
- cocoa powder - just make sure it's unsweetened! Sweetened cocoa powder will turn your hair into a sticky mess.
- a paper funnel
- a container to store it in
- measuring spoons
Step 2: The basic recipe
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
Ta-daaaa! Enough dry shampoo for tons of uses. As long as you keep it sealed up, you can store it in the bathroom with no issues.
