DIY Dry Shampoo

I have NO idea what has taken me this long to start using dry shampoo, especially DIY dry shampoo. Because it’s super simple (and cheap!) to make and it will keep your hair lookin’ fresh without having to wash it every single day. My hair naturally gets oily around day 2, but I do know that it’s not the best to constantly wash your hair every day. I asked one of my favorite organic hairstylists, Josie from Josie Organic Hair Studio, and she explains it perfectly,

“Washing your hair too often removes the natural oils that your scalp produces that is needed to keep your hair shiny and healthy. Using dry shampoo will allow excess oils to be absorbed on your roots without drying out your ends. This will allow your hair to grow out healthier than if you were to over wash it.

  • 3 Tbs Arrowroot Powder
  • 1 Tbs Raw Cacao (Omit if you’re blonde)
  • Couple Drops Of Your Essential Oil of Choice (Optional)


  1. In a bowl, add the ingredients and mix well.
  2. Using a brush (or even just using two fingers), rub some on the top of your head where it’s needed. I like to use my fingers and shake it into my hair really well. Some people recommend brushing your hair afterwards too!

Ta-da! Literally easy to make. Easy to use. What are you waiting for girl?!
