Makeup Monday - DIY Dry Shampoo

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  



WEEK 8 - DIY DRY SHAMPOO



Hi everyone, and welcome to Makeup Monday week 8.  Let's talk about dry shampoo today.  I really don't like washing me hair everyday and to help me with keeping my hair looking fresh I like to use Dry Shampoo Spray.  Have you ever tried it before?  Well it can get costly and the cans can range from about $8 to $25 and more.  I would usually spend about $8 on a can, so I decided that I wanted to make my own and I searched Pinterest for an easy DIY Dry Shampoo tutorial and here it is.

DRY SHAMPOO FOR LIGHT HAIR

1/4 cup cornstarch 
1/4 cup baking soda
5 - 20 drops essential oil - pink grapefruit, lavender, etc.


DRY SHAMPOO FOR DARK HAIR

1/4 cup corn starch
1/4 cup cocoa
5 - 10 drops essential oil - pink grapefruit, lavender etc.

Dip your makeup brush into the dry shampoo.  Dab the brush along your roots in sections.  Let it sit for a couple of minutes to absorb the oil and then brush out.  Style as usual.

Here is a photo of what I used to make my dry shampoo.

I store mine in a small jar and use a makeup brush to apply it.  Here is a tutorial on how to apply and use the dry shampoo HERE.

This natural homemade dry shampoo makes my hair stay fluffy with added volume.  I made the dry shampoo for light hair, but I didn't have any essential oil on hand and it still worked nice on my hair.  I didn't make the dry shampoo for dark hair since my hair is blonde.



If you don't want to wash your hair everyday this is a great alternative to use.  It's an easy way to save time on busy mornings and money and still look good.

I found this on Pinterest from Amanda at Small Home Big Start and the link is here.

See you all next week at Makeup Monday!

  1. I've bought the dry shampoo for my daughters but I haven't ever used it myself. I didn't know there was a recipe to make it at home. I'll pin it maybe I can save a little bit of money in the future. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I haven't ever tried it. I like the idea though, and I like that you can make it yourself. A little grapefruit oil would be nice in it, I think!

  3. Hi Julie!

    Wow! What an interesting fast fix for keeping our hair looking and smelling fresh! I'd heard of dry shampoo, but never really looked into what it actually is!

    Thanks for sharing and have a lovely week!

  7. This is great that you have light & dark since I go back and forth, long hair & do not wash daily. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I'm loving this series Julie! It's really not a good idea to wash our hair too often, so this is a great idea. Thank you!

  10. This is awesome! I recently bought a can of dry shampoo but my husband hates the smell and I really dislike using strong chemicals. When I was younger I would sometimes use talcum powder, but my hair is dark so it didn't look good ;)

  12. I love this. I don't wash my hair every day (I always wear it in a pony tail and it holds better when it's not freshly washed) and I've heard about dry shampoo but never tried it. I'll have to give this a try soon. Thanks for sharing on Great Idea Thursdays I'll be featuring this.

  13. This is so simple! I will have to give it a try - I don't like some of the ingredients they put in the spray ones. I usually have to wash my hair most days though because of sweating so much after my morning workout. On days where I do yoga I could try this.
