Making your own dry shampoo is way, way easier than you might think. All you need to do is apply a few drops of vodka (which you know you have on hand), two drops of witch hazel, and a few drops of essential oil (you can pick the scent, I did lavendar) to two tablespoons of regular old household cornstarch. The amount of oil should vary for your hair’s thickness (I use 1 drop but if you have thicker hair opt for two) and be mixed in thoroughly. The oil keeps your hair healthy and nourished and the witch hazel and vodka counteract the oil a bit. Once combined you can store in an airtight container and apply any way you would like (I use a shaker canister but some people prefer to apply with brushes) and enjoy!
Let’s get real, who has the time to wash their hair daily? I sure as hell don’t and not only that, but I have recently found out that for some hair types it is actually really bad for your hair to wash it everyday. So that is great news right? Less work every morning = more time to sleep in! Only issue for me is that I was born with childlike, fine hair that is a greasy mess by the end of the day when I do wash it (you don’t even want to imagine what it looks like when I don’t wash it!). So what is the solution to this hair chaos!? Two words for ya: Dry. Shampoo.
My college roommate turned me onto Lush’s “no drought” dry shampoo and I was totally hooked. I have used dry shampoos in the past that leave your hair with a strange white-ish, dull look to them but not this one. My only issue is that I now do not leave near a Lush so I decided to craft my own version!
