Homemade Dry Shampoo (for Light or Dark Hair)

About: I’m a mama of three and breast milk donor just trying to survive the chaos with coffee, fitness and wine!

Store-bought dry shampoos can be really unhealthy and often contain tons of chemicals. Not to mention, they can be really expensive! Here is a recipe for making your own all natural dry shampoo with ingredients that you can find around your kitchen! It lasts for a long time and works great!

For Light Colored Hair:

What you need:

A container (I used an empty salt shaker which makes it easy to shake onto my hair)

Equal parts cornstarch and baking soda

5-10 drops of essential oils - I use rosemary or lavender because they are great for hair and scalp health!

Directions:

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and transfer into your container. Shake, brush or sprinkle your dry shampoo onto your scalp and brush through to ends.

For Dark Colored Hair:

What you need:

A container

Equal parts cornstarch and unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tbsp baking soda

5-10 drops of essential oils (again, I like lavender and rosemary)

Directions:

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and transfer into your container. Shake, brush or sprinkle your dry shampoo onto your scalp and brush through to ends.
