With all the gel casting, pinning, and air drying, daily washing was too much. I needed to find another way to get that clean, just-washed feeling and smell that I loved every morning. The ingredients in most commercial dry shampoos is appalling and the organic ones are crazy expensive. So, I experimented with creating several different versions of homemade dry shampoos and came up with a recipe that I absolutely LOVE!
Turns out it’s even better than my old wet shampoo ways! Now I only co-wash every 3 days. After that time, my curls are not so great- more like waves and I mentally need to wet my hair. Time between washings may get longer as my scalp, hair, and mentality improve.
What makes it awesome:
What’s in it and why?
