That said, I was ecstatic when I saw a new commercial for Suave dry shampoo in an aerosol can. The excitement came mainly from Suave's reputation for lower than reasonable pricing. But the Pinterest-lover in me thought, "I bet I can make that." So I went to Suave.com to check out the ingredients.
Isobutane,Propane, SD Alcohol 40-B (Alcohol Denat.), Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Butane, Fragrance (Parfum), Isopropyl Myristate, Silica
But the truth is, I can make dry shampoo. And in a much more organic fashion than using the same material that lights up my grill. Of course, Pinterest connected me to a couple great blogs for a recipe. But in a pinch, plain corn starch or baby powder work too!
Organic Hair Powder:
2 Tablespoons Organic Arrowroot Powder
2 Tablespoons Kaolin Clay
1 Teaspoons Organic Horsetail Powder
6 drops Essential Oil of choice (more or less depending on the oil and your preference)
Mix in a medium bowl and then sift into a fine powder to remove any clumps. Voila!
Natural Dry Shampoo:
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
2 Tablespoons Cornmeal
2 Tablespoons Ground Oatmeal
Grind all in a blender and sift!
