DIY Dry Shampoo Spray for Light or Dark Hair

I love the volume of second day hair but hate the greasy look it comes with! I've learned that a dry shampoo or powder absorbs excess oils in between washes to get rid of that greasy hair look. Using a dry shampoo will makes your hair look great while washing less often (which is a good thing)! Washing your hair too often isn't good for your hair or scalp because:
  • Most store-bought shampoos contain chemicals that strip natural and needed oils from your hair 
  • Washing your hair too often causes your scalp to produce extra oils in order to compensate. This often leads to a situation where the scalp is very oily, but ends are dry and possibly damaged.
I like to make my own chemical free DIY dry shampoo spray with just a few simple ingredients from my kitchen. The spray is more convenient and less messy for me than a powder. Read below for the simple recipe!




Ingredients:
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup arrowroot or cornstarch
1/4 cup vodka, rubbing alcohol or witch hazel
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, or blow dry, and style as usual.
