So I'm not a big one for DIYs. If I'm honest, if it requires many ingredients or is particularly complex or messy then I'm unlikely to do it. I'm much more likely to buy a product or do without.
However one DIY that I can totally get behind is dry shampoo. You'll see why when we get to the recipe.
I used to use dry shampoo from a can and I loved it. I was so hesitant to give it up as I couldn't imagine that the homemade alternatives could compete. I was wrong.
I have now been using this DIY version for over a year and I love it. I keep it in a jar in my bathroom and apply it to my hair with a big fluffy blusher brush that I had left over and never use for makeup. It helps apply just the right amount and make sure it's going on my hair and not my shoulders instead.
- Cornflour (or cornstarch depending on what you call it)
- Cocoa powder
- Optional extras: turmeric, cinnamon, charcoal
- Half fill your desired container with cornflour.
- Add a little cocoa powder and mix well.
- Keep adding cocoa until the dry shampoo is only slightly lighter in colour than your hair.
- Feel free to add in extras to make it more similar to your hair colour.
That's it. You're done.
See why I like it? Why don't you try it out and let me know how you get on?
