If you have oily hair or are on the go and don’t have time for a shower, dry shampoo is a great fix. It won’t clean your hair as well as normal shampoo, but it will make it look presentable and save you some time too!
I’ve tried several dry shampoos in the past, but I’ve never been satisfied with them, so I’ve decided to make my own. Here are a few of my favourite homemade dry shampoo recipes:
- 1/2 cup of cornstarch
Massage cornstarch to your scalp and let it absorb oil for a few minutes. Brush it out to remove it.
2. Almond and Cornmeal Dry Shampoo
- 2 tablespoons of cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon of ground almonds
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of orris root
Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and massage just one teaspoon of the mixture into your scalp.
Brush your hair to remove the mixture.
If hair still feels greasy, repeat the steps again.
3. Oatmeal and Baking Soda Dry Shampoo
- 1 cup of ground oatmeal
- 1 cup of baking soda
Mix the ingredients together and massage the mixture into your hair.
Let the powder absorb the oil and then brush your hair to remove it.
