I am weird about washing my hair. My friends and family know this. I don’t like to wash my hair every day. I like to go every other day because my hair is fine and it helps my hair with volume if I do so. I PREFER to go every two days to wash my hair, but if I do that, I definitely need to work on it so it doesn’t look like it’s been two days.
Da da da DAAAAA DRY SHAMPOO TO THE RESCUE!
I have tried store bought dry shampoo, and it may work for 5-30 minutes, but then my hair goes flat and greasy. So it’s basically doing the opposite of what I’m going for.
I discovered online a few years ago the best dry shampoo that gives me at least another day of unwashed hair. Jim likes my hair even more than the first day I showered because it has texture and more volume.
DIY DRY SHAMPOO
Just mix all of these with the measurements 1:1:1
The cocoa powder helps the shampoo not be so white, especially if you have dark hair, so you can change the amount of cocoa based on your hair color.
I dump in 1-2 Tablespoons of each in an 8 ounce mason jar, close the lid, and shake it up.
Then I use my fingers to stroke it in the roots of my hair. Some use a powder makeup brush, but I find my fingers work well (just make sure they are clean!!).
Comb or brush it through and you’re good to go!
Sometimes I put it on my hair the night before if I don’t want to wash my hair in the morning. Also because my hair is so thin, I will use it before I curl my hair to help the curl texture to stay.
Let me know how it works for you!
