DIY Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair

Too busy to wash and style your hair as often as you'd like? If this happens to you too, we have the perfect solution: DIY dry shampoo. Just apply the dry shampoo to your roots with a makeup brush, tousle your hair with your fingers to rub it in, then style your hair like normal; the greasy shine is gone, and the dry shampoo adds a ton of volume to your hair! This DIY dry shampoo is for dark hair, but if you have light hair, you can use the same recipe, just leave out the cocoa powder.

DIY Dry Shampoo For Dark Hair


2 T arrowroot powder
2 T cornstarch
2 T cocoa powder (skip this if your hair is light colored)
a few drops of essential oil in your favorite scent (I used lavender)


Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Then add in a few drops of your favourite essential oil and stir with a whisk to combine. Transfer the DIY dry shampoo to an airtight container .

When you’re ready to use it, dip a makeup brush into the powder, then apply it to the roots of your hair. When you've applied enough, run your fingers through your hair and shake out the excess.
