DIY Dry Shampoo Recipe

Oily hair? In a rush? Whatever the reason why, we’ve got your back when it comes to making every day a good hair day. Dry shampoo can be a lifesaver when you don’t have time to wash and style your hair. Simply brush on the dry shampoo and it will soak up any excess oil so your hair looks and smells great.

It could not be simpler!

  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder or baking soda
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder for light hair and 2 tbsp for dark hair

Mix powder together. Separating your hair into sections, use an old makeup brush to brush the powder on. Leave for 2 minutes then brush your hair out. Style as usual.

When working with dry shampoo, less is more. Put in too much and you hair will look chalky and be difficult to manage.
