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.
