I recently discovered this gem, All thanks to Wellness Mama. My humble self just tweaked these 3 easy homemade dry shampoo recipes for cleansing hair especially when in a hurry. At first, I didn’t really fancy the idea of powder-ing my hair, I was like what a joke but a girl got to do what a girl got to do. I was amazed by how easy it was to make and use it so I figured I will just give it a trial. Especially after a whole week of keeping my hair in braids, well my hair was in protective style plus I am saving water *grin* According to Wellness Mama, Dry shampoo works because it has substances like arrowroot powder or corn starch which absorb the oil from the hair.
