Want to know a secret? People with fabulous hair don’t wash their locks every day! Stylists and salon professionals recommend washing only every other day and if possible, they also suggest limiting the use of blow dryers and irons. Constant hair washing strips away the hair’s natural oils and may cause the hair to become dry, brittle and unmanageable. So forget about washing with water and shampoo and opt for one of the best beauty products ever invented- dry shampoo! There are so many dry shampoos that are available on the market but there’s a slight problem with the formulation. These powdery dry shampoos leave the hair with white residue and sometimes may end up making you look like you have gray hair. This is especially true for people with dark hair so they tend to avoid these dry shampoos altogether. So greasy hair versus gray hair? There’s a little beauty dilemma going on right here and of course, there’s a brilliant solution by Glamour Girls. This DIY dry shampoo for dark hair is so simple and easy to use and best of all, the ingredients are all natural so no chemical buildup either! Hooray!
Here’s what you’ll need:
• 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
• 2 tablespoons corn starch
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
• Empty glass container
• Make up brush
• Gather all ingredients. Recycle old makeup containers and makeup brushes that you are no longer using anymore. These will be perfect for your DIY shampoo.
In a bowl. Mix all powders with a spoon. Take note that you can adjust the proportion of the cocoa powder if your hair is darker and for lighter hair, try adding more corn starch
Place the mixed powders in your container. Use a makeup brush and lightly dab to get an ample amount of dry shampoo. Shake off the excess and apply on the roots of the hair and other parts where you are especially oily.
That’s it! Super simple and it does the job better than most store bought dry shampoo! The cinnamon gives it a lovely scent so it leaves your hair smelling great too! Use this dry shampoo whenever you feel extra greasy like after working out or at the end of the day, when you want to freshen up for a night out with friends! Don’t forget to groom your hair using Bella Eleganze’s The Brush to remove residue and excess powders that may have settled on your scalp. This will also help detangle your hair fast. Hooray to fabulous looking hair with minimal effort!
