DIY Natural Dry Shampoo

I LOVE this natural dry shampoo! No more toxic store-bought version!

Nobody ever has to know…

Go ahead. Push that snooze button one more time. You don’t have to wash your hair today and nobody ever has to know.

Dry shampoo to the rescue! You can count a few more sheep without the worry of greasy, oily hair. Just spray on some dry shampoo and you’re good to go. In case you haven’t used it, it is a powder that basically soaks up excess oil.  Without washing your hair, you can sprinkle or spray your way to clean, voluminous locks. It seem like an awesome idea, right?

Until you read the ingredients. Things like butane, isobutane and propane and synthetic fragrance top the list. You know….just some explosive chemicals. Rather than waking up to a head full of ligher fluid, try a homemade natural dry shampoo. It’s easy peasy, works great and costs a ton less. Win. Win. Win.

Natural Dry Shampoo


arrowroot powder (or gmo-free cornstarch)
cocoa powder (for dark hair)
cinnamon (for red hair)
3-5 drops essential oils (optional) 


Depending on your hair color, use plain arrowroot powder for light hair, add 50/50 cocoa powder and arrowroot powder for dark hair. For red heads, use cinnamon. Add essential oils to make it smell nice! Lavender or sandalwood are both great for scalp help!

I keep the powder in a small, glass shaker. Whenever I use it, I just divide my hair into sections and sprinkle a little onto the roots. You can also use a clean make up brush and apply it with that. After applying the powder, massage the powder into your roots and style as usual.

Here’s to sleeping in! xo, Allison
