On the 9th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, an all natural dry shampoo!
It’s no secret It’s is best not to wash your hair too often. This gives your scalp time to restore it’s natural balance and produce the perfect amount of sebum for healthy hair. Twice a week is the goal. But that can be a tough one! Fine hair tends to get oily faster and it’s hard to live with that hair smell. Between washes I like to use something to keep oily roots at bay with a fresh scent and also to give my hair some added lift and volume!
Heres a great DIY recipe thats super easy, natural and it works!
You will need:
- 3 tablespoons of baby powder with talc in a bowl.
- 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to the mixture for light hair, or 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder for dark hair.
- ¼ teaspoon of any essential oil to the bowl. Select the oil with nice fresh scent, such as lavender or peppermint. This will add a fresh scent to the powder and keep the hair from becoming overly dry
Mix the powders and oil together with a spoon or small wisk until just blended. Pour the mixture into an empty spice shaker for easy application.
Sprinkle the texturizer on to the root of the hair, and massage it in with your fingers as needed.
