DIY dry shampoo spray is quick, easy, cheap and the BEST I’ve ever used!

SO excited about this week’s DIY!

I spend a lot of time, effort and money on my hair. I get it colored, I get it straightened, and I blow dry it every single day. And even though I’m super old, I still have a scalp that is definitely on the side of “oily”. So it is rough for me to skip a day of shampooing, even though I know it’s best for all the above reasons.

Which is why I rely heavily on dry shampoo. I was shocked to see that I have written about dry shampoo no less than THREE times on these pages – and that doesn’t even cover all the brands I’ve tried that I didn’t write about.

And at the end of the day they all work pretty much the same – regardless of the price.

Till now.

I’d never bothered making my own dry shampoo because most recipes are for a powder – which I find annoying and messy to work with. But when I found this recipe for a spray version I knew I had to try it.

Guys – this is hands-down the BEST dry shampoo I’ve ever used. THE BEST. It smells amazing, contains no toxic ingredients and really, really works. What I love best about it is that – while many of the other brands I’ve tried have done the job of absorbing excess oil, they all left a coating on my hair that I didn’t love. This spray leaves my hair feeling like hair.

Of course I used my essential oils – I chose lavender and rosemary, which are both shown to be beneficial for promoting healthier hair and scalp. But you can use any combinations that you like – I listed some suggestions below!

Let me know if you try it, and if you love it as much as I do!


DIY Dry Shampoo Spray

1/4 cup distilled water
1 tablespoon vodka or witch hazel
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder or cornstarch
10 drops Lavender essential oil
10 drops Rosemary essential oil

4-ounce glass spray bottle

Use a funnel to add all of the ingredients to your spray bottle. Shake well to combine. The arrowroot powder will settle so you’ll need to shake the bottle before each use.
