DIY Dry Shampoo

To be a lady, one must follow a few simple rules.  Rule number one: always, no matter what the occasion, look put together. Rule number two: don’t try to be anyone but yourself. And last but certainly not least: always do whatever you do with some spunk and confidence!

Let’s spend a moment focusing on our first golden rule: being put together.  Of course, all of these rules can be intertwined and we should follow each one to ensure happiness and success, but sometimes appearing put together is all you need to get through your day.

So, you roll out of bed and your hair is an absolute mess.   You’re in a rush and have absolutely no time to shower or you’ll be late for a very important date.  What’s a girl to do?

Cue dry shampoo.  These can often be quite costly if you seek a designer brand or one that simply gets the job done.  However, Free People offers a quick fix to your hair and budget issues.  DIY your own dry shampoo!

This DIY gives you both light and dark hair options and you can make it in the comfort of your own home and use ingredients you may have at your disposal.

Here’s how to create your miracle worker shampoo for light hair at home:

1/2 cup corn starch

2 tablespoons baking soda

a few drops of essential oil for a nice scent

For darker hair, try 1/2 cup cocoa powder instead of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch.

As college girls, we always want to look nice just in case we see that special someone on campus, and we also want to keep well within our budgets.  The solution to these problems is simple and quick with this Do It Yourself activity!

Our college careers are filled with small dilemmas, some avoidable and some out of our control.  Let your appearance be the one thing you can control and be the best beautiful, confident and put-together girl with flawless, fresh hair that you can be.
