As a green girl searching for ways to conserve water daily, I thought, well why don't I reduce the amount of showers I take in a week? This seemed like a great idea, but as someone who has naturally oily hair and skin, taking a shower everyday to look 'clean' was a necessity. I began experimenting in the kitchen with powders that would take the oil away while also not standing out.
The first few round of dry shampoos were epic failures. They has a gritty texture and when applied to the scalp, they were very noticeable. Through trial and error, I finally found a system of recipes that works. Using natural powders from the earth to compliment your hair type? This seems like a no brainer to me now!
- 1 tbs cacao powder
- 1 tbs organic corn starch
- 1/2 tbs cacao
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tbs corn starch
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
