Beauty related post incoming!
I am definitely impartial to buying an array of hair care and beauty products. However, after realising just how much dry shampoo I was getting through each week, I decided to make a small change which would significantly reduce the amount of packaging waste I was creating. Not only that, but I would also be using a natural hair product which would be of benefit to both myself and the environment.
This eco-friendly, natural dry shampoo can be made using a mixture of 3 parts cornflour to 1 part cocoa powder. It’s incredibly effective, cheap and sustainable. I apply mine to dark coloured hair at the root, with an old make-up brush. For light coloured hair, just cornflour by itself works a treat. I store mine in a glass jar that I’ve reused, with a bow (because it’s cute). I also have a very small jar that I fill with the dry shampoo to take with me whenever I’m travelling. I generally make a large jar once every 2-3 months. This is definitely a positive change, as I used to get through at least one tin of dry shampoo per week. Plus, smelling like cocoa powder is a dream!
Please see cute jar attached. 🙂
