1. DIY Cornstarch Dry Shampoo
Out of all the dry shampoo recipes, this one is the most basic ones you are going to see; meaning, most recipes involve the use of cornstarch and baking soda. The addition of cocoa powder makes this suitable for medium hair to dark hair colors. It is so simple to make this dry shampoo, and it is quite versatile with the cocoa powder quantity as well.
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tbsp baking soda
1 tbsp cocoa powder (adjust this depending on how dark or light your hair is)
Mix them all together, then use an old make-up brush to apply it to the oily parts of your hair, and shake or brush out excess powder. Hooray!
