Your DIY Dry Shampoo Consists Of Blended Oatmeal Or Cornstarch
The first thing to do is to choose which base you want your dry shampoo to have. Do you want it to consist of cornstarch or blended oatmeal? That is entirely up to you. Cornstarch is a base that will absorb oil and grease and freshen up flat roots. Blended oatmeal contains antimicrobial and antioxidant properties to help keep your hair and scalp healthy. However, what you will want to do when it comes to making the DIY dry shampoo to be suitable for your hair color, you want to know what component to include in your base.
The Second Ingredient To Add To The DIY Shampoo Has To Do With Your Hair-Color
If your hair is black, add some charcoal. Active charcoal takes in oils and strips away toxins and will give your hair a deep cleansing. If your hair brown, all you need to do is add some cocoa powder, which will add vibrancy and cover up grey hair strands. It will also add pleasant aromas in your hair. The great thing about cocoa powder is that it stimulates blood circulation, which helps your hair grow more. If you have red hair, then throw in some cinnamon, which will strengthen your scalp and hair. Cinnamon has microbial properties that will keep your hair free of infections. If your hair is blonde, add some arrowroot, which will help keep the hair light and odorless. Last but not least, if your hair is colored, add sidewalk chalk with the same color as your hair.
You can add optional ingredients if you have problems with dandruff or if your hair is extra oily. If your hair is light and you have dandruff, then you want to use fenugreek. If your hair is dark and you are struggling with dandruff, then use coffee grounds. Both ingredients will help fight the fungus that causes dandruff.
If your hair is extra oily, you can use calcium bentonite if your hair is light-colored as it will absorb the grease. If your hair is dark, then use activated charcoal as it will do the same. If you want to make sure the UV rays protect your hair from the sun, add some rice flour as well. For natural deodorizers, you can add a few drops of essential oils. The recommended essential oils to add are peppermint, eucalyptus, lemongrass, or orange oils.
How Do You Apply The DIY Dry Shampoo?
Mixing and applying the DIY dry shampoo is so easy. The first thing to do is to mix equal parts of either the cornstarch or blended oatmeal with the appropriate ingredient for your hair color in a bowl. Once you mix those up, take an old makeup brush and use it to apply the DIY dry shampoo to your roots. You can apply it to the areas of your hair that are oily as well. Then take a comb and comb the DIY dry shampoo through. Then style your hair as you usually would. It is as easy as that.
However, before you go ahead with this, do a patch test first. The last thing you want is to apply the dry shampoo and have a reaction from it. If there are no reactions, then you have the green light to go.
Having oily and greasy hair is not a fun thing to have. Since you are aware that washing your hair day after day can damage your hair, then there is a simple solution. The simple solution for keeping your hair clean without washing it every day is making your DIY dry shampoo. It is effortless to do as long as you follow the simple directions that were listed above. The choice of the dry shampoo base is up to you. And then choose the second ingredient based on your hair-color. Additional components are optional if you want to tackle a problem that you experience with your hair and scalp.
