I guess today was one of those days where I had a lot to do, and people to see and places to go, but no time to wash my hair.
And boy, did I need a good hair wash! My hair was SOOOO oily because today was also my 'shower' day.. So, I needed a quick fix, one that perfume and body spray just couldn't mask...
Long story short, I rushed to the kitchen and saw corn starch and remembered that it absorbs oil... Well, my hair is oily, it should work.. But it's white, so I decided that since I'm brunette I should add coco powder.
Well, low and behold... The combination worked!
What you will need for DIY dry shampoo:
2 oz corn starch er, roughly 1/4 cup
(optional) 1 spoonful of coco powder (if your a brunette)
(optional) pepper shaker
If you're going to put it in a pepper shaker, create a funnel with the paper, or use an actual funnel and put the powder into the shaker.
You don't really need a shaker but it's a good thing to use if you want to use the contents more than one time.. Otherwise you can just pinch the powder onto you hair....

Now, on to how to use the dry shampoo.
You should put on a dirty shirt or towel over your shoulders and step into the bathroom because it may be a bit messy
Next you will then use your fingers and start tussling your hair and rubbing the powder into your scalp and dispersing it around well until you can't see the powder.
Afterwards, give your hair a good brush through, and your hair should be oil free and super bouncy!
^^Look at this after set, and how nice my hair looks!
Any ways, I hope you enjoyed this little DIY dry shampoo tutorial, I know I enjoyed learning it!
Also, it's not a shower replacement, it's just for those days when you don't have enough time or days when you need 'dirty' hair but not 'dirty' roots~
