Are you one of those people who hate waking up early for hair wash? Or one of those who can barely take out time to wash their tresses? Dry shampoos are made just for you and can turn out to be your besties for sure.

Even though there are some really good dry shampoos available in the market, a good product can put just a bit of extra strain on your pocket. Instead make one at home. It will not only be pocket-friendly but it will also suit every hair type, which means your family members can use the same product easily.

You need:

· 1tbsp of cornstarch (For dark hair, use ½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder and ½ tbsp cornstarch)

· 4tbsp of water

· 2tbsp of apple cider vinegar

· 1tbsp of hydrogen peroxide

· Small mixing bowl

· Small spray bottle

· A few drops of essential oil for scent


Add the cornstarch in your mixing bowl and with the help of a stirrer or spoon, whisk in water, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide together. Finally, add around two to three drops of essential oil of your choice. Mix well and pour it into a spray bottle. To use, all you need to do is spray into roots, just enough to dampen (make sure to shake well each time you use), and brush and blow-dry your tresses. Run your finger through your hair a couple of times to message and spread away product, and you’re good to go.
