Dry Shampoo Hack

Are you a dry shampoo fan? (man I love that stuff)In my last post I shared just how often I wash my hair. (It’s not that often). Often I find myself in conversation about all- natural remedies and those conversations have inspired me to share my DRY SHAMPOO HACK.

Things you will need:

1 vessel/container with a lid to use as a shaker.

Enough corn starch to fill your shaker

Few drops of essential oil.

°Optional stir stick for mixing.

For my vessel, I choose a glass shaker. Why that you might ask. Here is why. It has holes in the lid already.It comes with a stopper, and the container part is clear so I’ll know when it’s time to refill.

Next you’ll read my step by step recipe for dry shampoo.

Step 1
In my vessel/container I add a drop of essential oil.

Step 2
Then I add about 1/3 of the cornstarch. I personally mix at this point,but you can continue this layer pattern untill your container is full. I like to leave a little room to shake to mix.

If you chose a container with out holes for dispensing you will need to make dispensing holes. Keep in mind a little cornstarch goes along way when applying to your scalp.

Now you have an environmentally safe, and chemical free batch, of non aerosol dry shampoo. To use simply part hair shake onto scalp. Rub into scalp and style. Enjoy

  1. Thanks , I have just been looking for information about this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve came upon till now. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you sure about the supply?

    1. Can you clarify what further in regards to the supply questions? Really I should share my updated findings with you. Instead of using a shaker to apply, I have decided to use a powder brush and dust on. I feel it is a faster application technique.
