Use arrowroot powder/cornstarch/oatmeal powder/almond meal powder or coconut milk powder as the base. Add cacao/carob powder for brown hair and cinnamon for reddish hair. Combine it with essential oils like lavender for hair growth or eucalyptus for eliminating dandruff. Apply with a blush brush on the roots of your hair, comb and style as usual.

Dry shampoo has become all the rage due to the culture of ‘no-poo’ because of the miracles it does for your hair health. But store-bought dry shampoo often costs a bomb and is filled is non-organic and toxic chemicals like isobutane, butane and propane.

Dry shampoo in its essence is simple. It helps absorb natural oils in your scalp which causes the greasy 3rd or 4th-day hair. So essentially an ingredient that can soak up excess oil. Of course, there are many natural ingredients that can do this exceptionally well.

Homemade DIY Dry shampoo

You can use one of the following ingredients as your main base and add one other ingredient like essential oils later on.

-Arrowroot powder
-Cornstarch
-Oatmeal powder
-Almond meal powder
-Coconut milk powder (optional conditions you hair)

Making the dry shampoo

-Brunettes can use cacao or carob powder and red-heads can use cinnamon powder along with the base powder.

-All you need to do is combine them together. The ratio is something that you have to arrive by trial and error. If your hair say dark brown, you may need to add a little more cacao powder to cornstarch. You don’t need your roots to look white.

Note: You can also add finely ground herbs like lavender, peppermint, rosemary, chamomile, calendula, roses or anything. If you are doing this then, you can skip essential oils. Or you could do a combination of rose herb powder and lavender essential oil to your base powder.

Essential oils for dry shampoo

After choosing a base and adding other powder for your respective hair colour, you can add essential oils. Following are some you can use.

-Lavender: Promotes hair growth and balances natural scalp oils

-Basil: Promotes hair growth and best for oily hair

-Chamomile: Conditions hair and soothes an inflamed scalp. Best for normal and fine hair dandruff scalp oil production

-Eucalyptus: For dandruff prone scalp

-Lemongrass: Slows down scalp oil production and best for oily hair

-Myrrh: Good for dry scalp and hair

-Cypress: Treats alopecia areata as well as in treating the dull and dry hair.

Using the Dry shampoo

The last step is very simple. Use a blush brush, dip it in your dry shampoo and apply it to the roots thoroughly. Comb and style as usual.
