Dry Shampoo has been coming out of the woodwork recently.
As a hairstylist I would always hear of such a product but never have actually tried it because it was so hard to find. The closest I got to this sort of thing was the KMS Makeover Spray which was pretty darn awesome. I did not consider this a dry shampoo but I guess it did everything a dry shampoo did so it could have been in that category.
A few years later, versions of dry shampoo started to pop up in aerosol spray containers. I am not too keen on spending lots of money on aerosols although I’m no saint, 1 bottle of hairspray is sitting in my drawer as we speak.
I like to limit my garbage or come up with different solutions for all these types of things so I started my search for dry shampoo on google.
There were lots of options to try out, corn starch and baby powder being among the most popular. I decided to give it a try.
Oh boy! Was that ever a bad idea!
I have brown hair, I looked like I had grey hair and had 1 inch of roots! It was so horrendous I immidently had to wash my hair.
It was about a year since this experience that I decided to try out a different recipe. I searched pinterest and google and saw that you could use cocoa powder to blend in with brown hair. This is genius! I wish I could credit this person but Im not sure who came up with it first.
It took a few tries to get the formula just right in order to come up with the exact proportions to blend into my medium brown hair colour. I finally did it and I’d love to share with all the brunettes out there how to get dry shampoo that actually works! Plus, its cheaper than that aerosol stuff 🙂
