DIY Dry Shampoo

When you’re a busy mother, college student, or even a teenager there are times you wake up and you just don’t have time to wash your hair.  There are often times I wake up and have 10 minutes to be out the door and the last thing I have time for is to wash and blow dry my hair.

Best powder for diy dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is the solution to dirty hair. I know some people have used baby shampoo but I like to use arrowroot or cornstarch and this DIY recipe.

You can also add essential oils to the DIY shampoo. We like tea tree oil.

Can you make your own dry shampoo?

Yes! This homemade dry shampoo recipe is perfect for busy mornings. Dry shampoo is one of my favorite hair products.

It really does the trick to absorb the natural oils in your hair. I think it works better and leaves hair smelling so fresh and clean. It truly has changed my morning routine around here.

It’s saved so much time and helped with the chaos of trying to get ready when you don’t have much time. Some mornings are just crazy and mom’s often get pushed to the back burner.

This trick will help you still look put together in very little time. Another trick of mine is one of these Easy and Cute Bun Hairstyles for Busy Moms. I’m all about making life easier and some mornings if I washed my hair, I would be late to where I was going.

What can be used instead of dry shampoo?

If you are in a pinch, baby powder can be used. Arrowroot powder is also a good alternative.

Homemade Dry Shampoo for Blondes and Brunettes

What you need for DIY Dry Shampoo for Blonde hair:

Pour your cup of oatmeal into a blender and pulse a few times to get a powder consistency.  Now in a small mixing bowl pour in your oatmeal and your corn starch and stir the ingredients together.

Spoon your dry shampoo into the container and you’re ready to go. I like the shorter 4 oz  jars because it’s easier to get the dry shampoo out to use.

This diy is perfect for light hair.

Plus, you can reuse the jars which saves even more money!

How to apply DIY Dry Shampoo:

To apply the dry shampoo in either color just sprinkle a bit of the dry shampoo on your roots and rub in with your fingers.  The powder will absorb into your roots soaking up the excess oil sitting on your head.

Plus I love the hint of the cocoa powder on my roots –  makes me feel so refreshed! Brush your hair and you are ready to go! It’s such a time saver!

You can also use a make up brush to help get the powder into your roots without getting your hand messy. This really is a fool proof way to use dry shampoo without paying a fortune.

The makeup brush allows you to really get to the scalp and to the roots to absorb the excess oil. It’s such an easy way to freshen up your hair quickly.

In the past, I have paid anywhere from $3 to $9 for a spray bottle of dry shampoo. This adds up quickly!

Now you can make this homemade dry shampoo for pennies instead of dollars. 🙂 Sounds good to me!

We have been saving so much money making our own products. We recently learned how to make makeup remover. It feels so good to add another all natural product to my list of things I am using now.

We have made The Best All Natural Cocoa Butter Lip BalmDIY Body Lotion ,  DIY Bath Bombs Recipe and many more!  I love being able to control what goes into our products.

No worries about chemicals or additives. You can also make DIY Face Moisturizer with ONLY 2 ingredients! Your skin will feel wonderful!

Plus, it has really helped our budget. All of these beauty products can really add up. Making your own products saves money and allows peace of mind knowing it’s all natural.

It didn’t happen overnight, but we make many of the products that we use. Just tackle a new product each week or as time allows.

Don’t try to convert all your products to DIY items over night. You will get overwhelmed.

Just try a new one when you run out of one of your products. That will be much easier on you than trying it all at once. Trust me….I know. 🙂
