Dry Shampoo Hack - Great Tip and so Frugal!

I don't remember where I saw this or how long ago it was but this simple and super cheap hack has saved my hair more than once.

For the past couple of years, I have discovered that my hair looks healthier (and the color last longer too) if I only wash it 2 or 3 times a week. Every time you wash your hair, you are also washing away important natural oils that your hair needs.

If you need to run out of the house and your hair is getting to the end of your hair washing break, or it's a little oilier than normal, this hack will have your hair looking fresh and beautiful. I find that this is best when done before bed if you plan to run out in the morning for a quick meeting or errand.

The simple ingredients.....cornstarch and baking cocoa. This does make sense because cornstarch absorbs moisture. And the cocoa powder is simply to take away the white powder look. I'm blonde so I just use a small amount. For dark hair, you can use more. 

***Just be sure not to let your cat or dog lick your hair because unsweetened chocolate is highly toxic to them.

I keep mine in the bathroom in a 1 cup size container and apply it with a large makeup brush. It's really that simple! That cup will probably last me a lifetime since I don't use it all that often. You can also put it in a shaker container and shake it on, then brush it out.

You only need to put it close to the scalp then give a good brushing or combing.

  1. Very interesting! As my hair has gotten longer I find myself going a "few more days" between shampoos. A good natural bristle brush will help also to redistribute the oils that collect near the roots, and actual make your have look shiny and smooth. I have to detangle with a more "toothy" brush first, then use the natural bristle brush to get the smoothing effects. I think I will mix up a batch. Thanks
