Handy Tips

Everyone has those days when they cant be bothered to wash their hair, or simply just don't have the time. Dirt and oil in the hair tend to make it look dull and limp so the perfect solution is to use a dry shampoo. It absorbs the dirt and oil, and it is brushed away with no fuss. Below I have included a few recipes with ingredients everyone has at home.

Herbal Oatmeal Dry Shampoo

Crushed up oatmeal blended with an aromatic dry herb ( I like Rosemary) that you like make an easy combination for a dry shampoo. Sprinkle enough of the mixture to cover all hair, and massage for five minutes before you brush it out.

Cornstarch and Cornmeal

These two kitchen staples can stand alone in their ability to remove oil from hair. Rub either of the two into the hair at the scalp and brush out. Cornmeal seems to leave the hair shinier than cornstarch,but both leave the hair and scalp feeling cleaner.

Baby Powder
A readily available homemade dry shampoo for oily hair is baby powder.  It naturally absorbs oil on the scalp, and leaves a mild scent in the hair.

Personalize  the homemade dry shampoo experience by giving your preferred mixture a unique touch. Dried flower petals, herbs, grated lemon peel or a drop of your favorite essential oils will leave  hair smelling fresh and beautiful.
