Easy peasy & super worth it. I've used all sorts of dry shampoos & I loved the concept, but didn't love the price. So I found this wonderful recipe here. For those of us with thin oily hair, we need showers more often than most. I was having to shower everyday...not that I needed it, but my hair certainly did. With two little boys all over the place, showering everyday is not always realistic, & I'm not big on ponytails so this is the way to go for me. I LOVE this stuff.

  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons rubbing alcohol
I guess that sounds kind of scary, but for me it's wonderful! I saw some people had concerns with it turning your hair a different color but I've been using this consistently (every other day) for 3+ months now & have never had any problems with it. My hair is brownish & dyed & I've also used it with blonde hair both of which I didn't have any problems. I only spray it on my roots & I don't get crazy with the amount I use. I lift my roots with a brush or my fingers, spray it in, & let it dry before I brush it through the rest of my hair. It gives me volume which is nice too. I would be really interested to see how it works on other hair types, so leave me feedback if you try out this recipe!


  1. I have VERY fine very greasy hair, and I have used a similar recipe (1 part cornstarch, 1 part alcohol, 2 parts water) and it works WONDERS I don't like how it smelled so I put a few drops of my favorite perfume and BAM! I also read somewhere that you can add cinnamon or cocoa powder if it makes your dark hair too light, but I found that it just ruins the spray bottle!

  2. I am finding this very messy! It may be me, I am a messy person to begin with. :) Whatever doesn't land on my hair lands on the floor/mirror/sink and dries as white mist everywhere. I also have dark hair so the first use it looked like I had bad dandruff so I added cocoa powder this morning and am happier with the result but I still had to clean up brown mist all over my bathroom. I think I will try a true dry shampoo next. Thanks for the great idea!

  3. I certainly agree to some points that you have discussed on this post. I appreciate that you have shared some reliable tips on this review.
