Moment of realness: some of us don't wash our hair every day. Whether it's because we don't have time, want to save water, or don't have access to a shower (camping trips can really put you in touch with your natural side...), it just doesn't always happen.
Over the years, I tried tons of spray-in dry shampoos. I loved the volume and extra time they gave my hair, but all of them really irritated my sensitive skin. And so I started making my own with natural ingredients.
That recipe has evolved over time, and I now present to you a light, herb-infused dry shampoo that soaks up oil and refreshes your locks without the use of chemicals. The key ingredients are arrowroot powder and kaolin clay, both of which absorb excess oil and can easily be brushed out of the hair so you don't end up with a dusty look.
Herbs like nettle, lavender, calendula and rose give the original blend a light, earthy herbal scent, while jasmine and green tea give my newest blend a delicate floral vibe. All of the herbs used are nourishing and soothing to the scalp - and help to add a little body to your gorgeous tresses!
To use, just sprinkle a small amount on the hair (start with just a bit - you can always add a more if needed, and a little goes a long way), and work into tresses with your fingers. Let the powder sit for a moment to absorb oil, brush out your hair, and viola; a second chance at life.
