One of my favorite beauty products is dry shampoo. I wish I would have had this stuff during my college years, totally would have changed my ‘grunge’ look phase. The downside to dry shampoo is that it’s expensive and it’s really hard to keep a can going. The nozzle gets clogged up before the can is empty and the whole process of cleaning it gets old in a hurry.
Homemade dry shampoo is great for your wallet, the environment, and your scalp!
I really like that this homemade dry shampoo recipe is all natural. It smells delicious, no joke I could eat this stuff….and it wouldn’t even hurt me! Making homemade dry shampoo saves you money, the ingredients can all be picked up on Amazon for less than $20 AND those ingredients can make you enough homemade dry shampoo to last a long time. All natural ingredients and there’s no aerosol propellant to chew holes in the environment. If I can make products at home that are easy on my wallet, my routine, and the world I live in…that’s a win.
Today I whipped up a batch of my favorite homemade dry shampoo. You’ll see in the video that it’s totally quick and easy. This recipe made enough for two smaller jars, one for me and one for Katherine! Her hair is much lighter than mine and works great so you fair haired semi-brunettes fear not.
