I always had oily skin and hair. I know that looking good in such conditions takes a lot of time. To have great looking hair I had to wash my hair daily and I got tired of spending so much time on it. That led me to this homemade dry shampoo option. Natural dry shampoos aren’t a new thing. Furthermore, you’ll find endless combinations of ingredients online. This custom DIY dry shampoo one works quite well for me. A little tweaking and hopefully you’ll find similar results!
I used a mix of arrowroot powder, which is light and absorbent. Also I added some bentonite clay powder, which has endless uses from eczema soothing properties, to acne clearing benefits. don’t forget to mix in some unsweetened cocoa powder.
Simply use a soft powder brush to apply. Lightly dip the end of the brush into the powder and tap off any extra then dab it all the way around the hairline that you know will show that day. Think about your part line and hairline all the way around your head-don’t forget the back!
You can then brush it into your hair or just let it be. Try both ways and see which is best for you. I find the best results when applying the homemade dry shampoo mix at least 30 minutes before running out the door. I typically try to do this first thing in the morning to make sure I won’t forget.
