How To Make Dry Shampoo For Less Than $2

Backyard Solar Power Revolution...

I really don’t like washing my hair every day. It takes forever to dry my hair and I try not to use heating tools on it every day if I can avoid it.

To give me hair a break and still freshen it up, I sometimes use dry shampoo between washes. It soaks up any oils that the hair follicles create at the roots, and gives it a bit of body too.

Store bought dry shampoos can be expensive, with top brands being as much as $35, but you can make it at home very easily, for less than $2 a jar!

It’s an easy way to cut back some time on your busy mornings, while still having fresh hair. There are two different recipes, one for light or one for dark hair. Both are easy to make and you can customize them with your favourite essential oils.

Dry Shampoo for Light Hair

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 5-10 drops essential oil (e.g. pink grapefruit, lavender, etc.)

Add the cornstarch and baking soda to a small bowl. Add in some drops of essential oil. I went with pink grapefruit for a fresh scent, but lavender would be nice too.

Using a fork, mix it up well.

I store it in the bathroom in a small jar, with an old makeup brush to apply it. A shaker jar would work too.

Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 5-10 drops essential oil (e.g. pink grapefruit, lavender, etc.)

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.

I packaged it up in an old spice jar.

The holes on the top of the lid make it perfect for sprinkling onto your roots.

How to Use Dry Shampoo

Dip your makeup brush into the dry shampoo.

Dab the brush along your roots, in sections. You’ll look like you have wild grey hair, but don’t worry, it will come out.

Let it sit for a couple of minutes to absorb the oil and then brush out. Style as usual. I find that it gives my roots some extra volume as well.
