DIY Beauty: Dry Shampoo for Dark/Red Hair!

Saturday, December 14, 2013

Dry shampoo is great ... for anyone with light hair.  It's hard to find a dry shampoo for dark hair in my area, so I've had to resort to DIY-ing!  Here are two easy and affordable dry shampoo recipes for anyone with dark or red hair!



For dark hair you will need:
- 4 Tbsp. cornstarch
- 4 Tbsp. pure unsweetened cocoa powder
- An airtight container to store it in
- A makeup brush to apply

For red hair you will need:
- 4 Tbsp. cornstarch
- 4 Tbsp. paprika
- An airtight container to store it in
- A makeup brush to apply

Choose powder that matches your hair colour closely.  Paprika especially can come in several colours.

Combine the two ingredients in your airtight container... and you have your dry shampoo!!

To apply, use an old makeup brush to apply to your roots and hairline. Wait a few minutes to allow the powder to soak up the oils, and then brush your hair.

For dark hair especially, I recommend washing your hair within two-three days of the first application.  Because these are food products, you want to avoid leaving this in your hair for too long!

That's it for todays post.  Hope you enjoyed!

Cheers to happy, clean hair!

xoxo, Jayy
