Gathering Dry Shampoo Ingredients
To make a good dry shampoo without using harmful ingredients, you only need a few pantry staples. There are many recipes available for dry shampoo tweaks to make one that best suits your needs or the needs of consumers.
Starting out, simply combine equal parts baking soda and cornstarch in a durable container with a tight-sealing lid. If you have red or brown hair, you may want to consider adding a color brightener. Cinnamon is a good choice for redheads and cocoa powder is ideal for brunettes.
If you’re a blonde, you can pass over the color additive and shake up the cornstarch and baking soda for immediate use.
Applying the Dry Shampoo
Use a clean powder brush (normally used on your face) to get dry shampoo into the roots of your hair. Start by adding the mixture to the top of your scalp, gently patting the brush to cover all areas.
You can also use your fingers to run powder through the length of your hair, working through to the ends.

- Use peppermint essential oils to freshen the scalp
