How to Make Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a great alternative for those days when you have no time to wash your hair. 5-Minute Crafts will show you how to make your own natural dry shampoo with ingredients you have in your pantry.
- 1 1⁄4 cup cornstarch
- 1 tbsp baking soda
- Cocoa powder to suit your hair color
- 15 drops peppermint essential oil
Note: Only use dry shampoo once or twice a week.
Add 1 1⁄4 cup of cornstarch to a bowl. Cornstarch helps draw out the oils from your hair.
Add 1 tbsp of baking soda. This will help neutralize the odors coming out of your hair. Baking soda also has great cleansing properties.
If you’re a brunette or have slightly darker hair, adding cocoa powder is a good option. Add cocoa powder until it matches your hair color.
Peppermint oil is also a good option to add to your mixture. Pour around 15 drops to help stimulate your scalp and make your hair feel fresh.
With the help of a whisk, blend all the ingredients. Make sure there are no lumps.
