DIY Dry Shampoo Recipe
Have you ever wished that you could shampoo less, yet still have non-greasy, bouncy hair? I have!
This DIY Dry Shampoo recipe is the answer. And it actually works!
Less shampooing means healthier hair. Shampoo strips oil from the scalp and hair, which can leave your hair and scalp drier and your hair more prone to breaking.
I used to have to shampoo my hair every 2 days and if I went any longer than that, my hair was a lifeless, greasy mess. After using this DIY Dry Shampoo, I can go about 4-5 days and my hair still looks great and stays full of life and body.
This is 4 day hair with this DIY Dry Shampoo Recipe! No grease and I still have body and bounce! Love!
With just a few simple ingredients, I’ll show you how you can customize your very own blend of dry shampoo that is perfect for your color and type of hair. This recipe is even safe for color treated hair.
