Meet Your New Homemade Dry Shampoo

Washing your hair every day isn’t good for you, but sometimes it’s difficult to go long without washes – which is where dry shampoo comes in handy!

I LOVE dry shampoo! When I went to the US, I think I bought about 15 dry shampoos because they had so many brands that they didn’t carry in Japan. Plus, I could read all the labels so all that marketing magic was really working on me.

Anyway, I’m starting to run out of dry shampoos because of my intense usage. I also don’t want to keep buying there’s a lot of non-recyclable materials and plastics being used. So after some Googling, I found out that there are two things to substitute for dry shampoo – cocoa powder if you have dark hair, and cornstarch flour if you’re a blonde.

Um, it’s not really a recipe because all it calls for is one single ingredient which is..cocoa powder. There are two ways you can apply it. I have it in a reused glass jar, and I dip my makeup brush in it and then apply it on my hair. On that note – make sure you don’t use a glass jar that used to be a tomato sauce jar, because OMG, my hair smells a bit of tomato and cocoa powder now. That is NOT great. If you don’t want to use a makeup brush, you can use a salt or pepper shaker and then just sprinkle it on top of your head.

The rest is easy. Just rub it in your hair and you’re good to go!
