Dry Shampoo Recipe

Step 1: Fill half your container with Arrowroot Powder

Step 2: Add 4 drops of Lavender

Step 3: Fill the rest of your container with Arrowroot Powder

Step 4: Shake, Shake, Shake

A few notes about this recipe... We use arrowroot because it is harvested from the tubers of its plant without the use of harsh chemicals or high heat. An added benefit is that arrowroot is LOADED with nutrients! If you have black or brown hair we would suggest adding either cocoa powder to reach the color of your choice OR substituting with cocoa powder all together. Our choice to use lavender is purely preference. We love that lavender aids in dry skin and smells amazing! You could sub in four drops of the oil of your choice. Lastly, we got this cute little shaker from the dollar store. A little shaker similar to this is perfect for the application of dry shampoo, but if you cant find one, you can also dip an unused makeup brush into your powder to apply it to your roots. Just make sure to massage the powder in so that you can't see it! 

Hopefully, this recipe saves the day when you are in a pinch or need to give your hair a quick boost!
