What is dry shampoo?

Dry shampoo is a formula which is used to clean and freshen up your hair without washing your hair with shampoo. Dry shampoo comes in two forms – powder and spray. Once applied, it absorbs the dirt and excess oil from the scalp and gets rid of greasy hair. It also leaves behind lovely smell. Using dry shampoo helps to avoid frequent hair washing. Apart from getting rid of oily greasy hair, it makes your hair look bouncy and smell fresh, just like freshly washed hair.

For them, dry shampoo is a great option as it instantly gets rid of greasy and oily scalp and gives you fresh looking hair.

Lots of dry shampoos are available in the market these days. But like I said before, choosing the right shampoo for your hair can be little tricky. Most of them are pricey and all of them are filled with chemicals. So to save money and to save your hair from damage, baby powder can be used as an alternative to dry shampoo. After all, most of the dry shampoos are basically talc with fragrance and therefore, baby powder can automatically give you the same effect.

  • Section your hair first.
  • Now start sprinkling baby powder on your hair.
  • Brush your hair till all the baby powder disappears.
  • And there you have fresh, oil free hair.

You can mix some cocoa powder with the baby powder to get the color close to your hair (you don’t have to worry about any trace of baby powder leaving behind too).
