While nothing beats a hot and relaxing shower, some days it’s hard to find the time. For those hectic days, dry shampoo is a quick way to freshen up dirty hair. The combination of arrowroot powder, talc powder and tapioca powder create an oil absorbing powerhouse that leaves hair feeling refreshed. Simply apply the powder directly to your roots, and use your hands to work in the powder. Scented with Relaxing Fragrance Oil, this dry shampoo smells of vanilla, lavender and musk.
Because the powder is white, dry shampoo can leave a slight powdery color in darker hair. You can add mica color to the powder to darken the powder, but this can make the powder quite messy and may color your scalp. If you’d like to experiment with color in your dry shampoo, we recommend adding 1/2 tsp. of mica colorant to the powder and working up from there. When adding color, the powder will still look white. To test the color, spread the powder on the back of your hand to see the true color. In our tests, oxides did not mix in as well as mica colorants and were very streaky.
ONE: In a large bowl, add the tapioca powder, arrowroot powder and talc powder. Use a whisk or your hands to fully incorporate the powders.
TWO: Add Relaxing Fragrance Oil, and use your hands to blend the fragrance in thoroughly. Continue to blend until there are no “chunks” of fragrance oil in the mixture; this can take several minutes of mixing.
Have you used dry shampoo before? I absolutely love it for busy mornings when a shower is not possible!
