DIY Dry Shampoo -- Guest Blogger Kika

 
DIY Dry Shampoo

You've probably already heard of dry shampoos and how much easier they make life. How we ever did without is beyond me. In an attempt to go green and allow my hair a month of detoxification from commercial products I've been using homemade shampoos, rinses and an all natural dry shampoo is a must.

It couldn't be easier to make or to apply. This is a 2-in-1 post, with an option for both light and darker hair colors.

Ingredients:

Light Hair
-4 tbs arrowroot powder
-essential oil (optional)

Dark Hair
-2 tbs arrowroot powder
-2 tbs cocoa powder
-essential oil (optional)


Steps:

1. Take a small mixing bowl and add the arrowroot powder.(For light hair continue to step 3.)
2. Add the cocoa powder.
3. Add a few drops of your choice of essential oil.
4. Mix thoroughly.
5. Store in an airtight container. (An empty, cleaned out spice container works just fine.)
6. Enjoy! ^-^


Tips:

I chose coconut for my essential oil, the combination of coconut with the cacao was just heavenly. I can just imagine how great peppermint oil will be in the winter. I imagine jojoba oil may be a nice combination with the cacao as well. You could use salt + pepper shakers to store your dry shampoo but I would recommend an airtight container just to keep it from absorbing any outside odors. Spice containers are your best bet. 


There you have it a quick and extremely cheap but most importantly a completely eco-friendly dry shampoo. It's really helped lessen the effects of the transition stage from commercial products to more natural alternatives. Make sure to comment below if you tweaked the recipe or applied as is, what oils you prefer and how well it worked for your hair type.
