My Favorite Dry Shampoos & Some DIY Ideas

I am not a huge fan of dry shampoos.

Whether it’s because I still feel dirty even if I use one or because I find that they are too expensive and a waste of money, I’m not sure.

I was requested to do a post on dry shampoos though so here is what has worked for me in the past!


Okay so the one that I own is coconut, but I think it’s discontinued.

At any rate, this will do the trick anyway and most people like vanilla whereas not everyone likes coconut.

Anyway, this is my favorite thing to use as a dry shampoo because it has a nice scent, it’s made of mostly natural ingredients and doesn’t make me look like I’m ashy or graying.

All I do is dip an old toothbrush into the jar, tap off excess like I would with a makeup brush and then brush into my hairline until it completely blends in and there is no powder residue left.

This is a great option because it’s talc free, which can clog pores if you are really sensitive. I like this option because you get a lot more for a cheaper price so it will last a lot longer than typical dry shampoos.

Other DIY Ideas: 

Other easy ideas for dry shampoo include rice powder, tapioca starch or corn starch. I have actually tried rice powder and tapioca starch, both of which soak up oils really well, but I haven’t tried corn starch. It is basically the same as tapioca starch though, and may be easier to get a hold of.

      Yeah I haven’t tried Batiste, but I did try some drugstore brand..(whose name eludes me? lol) and I didn’t like it much. I also tried some Osis or something brand and it just felt like it made my hair oilier. Rice powder is known to absorb oils similar to kaolin clay, both of which are used commonly in face powders for this reason. So I thought I would apply the idea to my hair. It works quite well, though just like regular store bought dry shampoos, they need to be brushed and blended into the hair to avoid looking ashy/gray haired lol. It’s not too difficult with these though as they are meant to absorb oils.

    I’ve never used dry shampoo because I don’t know how to use it and I didn’t want to make my hair look a greasy mess. These tips are fantastic. I can’t wait to try it out this summer. Thanks so much for sharing!
