Over the last decade, dry shampoo has grown to be a staple beauty product in a lot of bathrooms.
If you're unfamiliar, dry shampoo isn't even shampoo at all. It doesn't clean your hair, but it's used to soak up excess oils and help control odor in between washes.
Like I've shown you with mascara and lipstick (links below!) not all dry shampoos are created equal. One ingredient to look out for is talcum powder, because it's been known to carry trace amounts of asbestos, which has been linked to cancer.
A study a few years ago showed that aerosols are a major contributor to air pollution and they're not good to breathe in, so I also recommend sticking to dry shampoos that come in powder form.
You can also easily make your own dry shampoo with just a few ingredients. This easy DIY will also save you money!
- 3 tbsp arrowroot starch or flour (or organic cornstarch)
- 1 tbsp cacao powder (if you have darker hair)
- 7 drops essential oil (I use rose)
- Add the arrowroot and cacao powder (if using) to a jar
- Add essential oils and mix together
- Apply with a hair coloring brush or old makeup brush to the root part of your hair
