DIY | Dry Shampoo

Hello everybody, hope you all are doing well, I'm back after a looong time. Did you miss me? Well let's just pretend you did , haha. Summer has officially begun, which means sweating and greasy hair, urgh. For todays post I'm going to share a DIY recipe of a dry shampoo that smells like cocoa, yum.

Dry shampoos has changed the game, they are great for absorbing excess oil and grease. I love using it after a work out and for days when I'm just too lazy to wash my hair (pretty much everyday, eh) It save a lot of time and gives you fresher hair in less than 10 minutes.
I've used quite a  lot of dry shampoos and one thing that irritates me is the strong smell. The label says, smells like cherries but in reality it just smells like a cough syrup. um no, thank you. I don't know if my nose is too sensitive or every other dry shampoo, no matter how effective, smells really bad. It's hard to find an unscented dry shampoo.

Then one day I came across this recipe of a powder dry shampoo that is way too easy to make and it smells like chocolate *Jackpot!* This dry shampoo is all natural ingredients and does not contain any chemicals. I have been using it for the past 4-5 months and I'm absolutely loving it so I'm going to share it with you guys today.
Everything you need to make this shampoo would be easily available in your kitchen. All you need it:

1 Cup Corn flour
1/2 Tablespoon Baking powder
Cocoa powder - Depending on how dark your hair is, it blends in better with the darker hair. I used 1/2 cup.
Combine all ingredients well and store it in the container of your choice. Tadaa! enough dry shampoo for months.

Section your hair using a comb or your fingers and sprinkle a tiny bit of powder onto your roots / scalp. Let it sit for 5-8 minutes, depending on how oily your hair is. Then brush the excess away. Keep combing until you can't see the white residue in your hair, or else your hair will end up looking grey. 

I normally wash my hair 2-3 times a week but on days when I just don't want to wash my hair, this is perfect and did I mention it smells like chocolate!! haha.
Why you should try it?
simple and inexpensive to make
smells like chocolate
great for you if the strong smells bothers you
adds a little bit of volume to the hair

*For better results, use it a night before you go to bed.
So if you don't like the way how dry spray shampoos feels on your hair, give this homemade cocoa dry powder shampoo a try at least once and let me know if it worked for your hair.
Thanks for reading :)
