Beauty Talks: Dry Shampoo

I have never used dry shampoo until I found myself with hair in need of a wash and no time. This dry shampoo is perfect for in between washes because it eliminates oiliness. This particular recipe gives you a volume boost too. The hardest part of this recipe is finding the ingredients, but don’t worry we found the all of them and you can too by using the ingredient guide on the Fresh Face Forward website. The dry shampoo has a faint gingery-sage smell but that will fade when you blow dry it out or you can skip the ginger and sage altogether. Apply this to dry hair in need of a pick-me-up. Do not use on wet hair. This week’s recipe comes from Green Beauty Recipes by Julie Gabriel:

Aromatherapeutic Dry Shampoo
3 tbsp kaolin (white clay)
3 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp potato or gram (chickpea) flour
½ tsp ginger powder
¼ tsp ground sage

Combine all ingredients and stir until well mixed. Divide your hair and sprinkle lightly onto scalp and roots. Brush your hair thoroughly (this step may not be necessary for everyone, especially if you have very curly or difficult to brush hair). Blow dry hair upside down on cool setting to remove powder.
