    i tried the All-Natural Dry Shampoo For Dark Hair,
    and it did not work very well for my hair. 0_0 yes, it disappeared easily, but my hair felt clumpy, and stuck together. it did not feel freshly washed. also, even though i tried both adding a little/adding a lot to see what worked better. in both cases, i would run my hand through my hair and my nails would have brown powder, making my nails look dirty.

    i tried simply using cornstarch and my hair became soft and felt like i just cleaned it, it was amazing. i wanted to post this for people like me with very particular hair. lol i have extremely oily hair.

    Once upon a time, I had a glorious head of hair…thick, shiny, long and wavy/curly. By my late 30′s, it was noticeably thinned, frizzy, dull, grey, lifeless. I had every test known to see if there was a medical problem…..zilch. Stress, age, and genetics were left to blame.
    At 45, now I have the added menopause to blame as well.

    I saw this “no ‘poo” movement on FaceBook and tried it. I stopped using shampoo about a month ago….just the occasional conditioner and a bit of shampoo in the length once. I also started taking a multivitamin with extra zinc.
    My hair has REALLY improved!!!! Thicker and so much healthier looking…and even regrowth! I get comments all the time on how much better it looks. It also makes the hair dye last longer.

    But I’m going to try this dry shampoo; hopefully I won’t need to shampoo the length anymore!
    Thanks!!!!

    Holy ‘poo! This works! I just mixed up a batch and tried it because my bangs were getting clumpy and yucky and I didn’t want to wash my hair until after tomorrow morning’s workout. I tried this out and my bangs are all poofy and light again along with the rest of my hair. I sound like a cheesy infomercial, but this actually worked and I’m so excited! Thank you!

    What brands have you found that make the most efficient conditioner?

    I wish I didn’t have a sensitive scalp! :( I’m allergic to oats and sometimes almonds.

  7. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been so happy since I made your recipe and tried it yesterday! I am a busy mom
    and work full time and now I can jump in the shower and be out the door soooo quickly and not feel ashamed of my hair! I have been thrilled. Sheila

    This was so helpful! I have tried everything to solve my oily hair problem, and nothing has worked as well as this dry shampoo. I put it on about 24 hours ago, and my hair does not look the slightest bit greasy. Thank you so much for this!

  9. I am SO glad to hear how well this worked for you! I too love the convenience of this dry shampoo and I def love the smell of it hahahah <3

    I have fine, thinning, oily hair and have struggled with trying to make my hair not look greasy by mid-day! I just tried this and it’s amazing. I made the brown hair version using cacao powder. After washing and drying my hair I applied it to my bangs and around my part. By the end of the day there was no trace of grease in my hair including my bangs. Once I applied it I didn’t try to remove it because I wanted it to stay in hair. Once I applied it you could not tell it was there. I cannot tell you how happy I am!!!

    Thank you for your dry shampoo recipe. Will this work for naturally curly, dry hair? My concern is that it will make my hair dryer and frizzy/fly away. By the way, do you have a natural mascara and eyeliner recipe? Thanks again!

    Christina, your recipes for dry shampoo just made my day. I’ve struggled with oily hair since adolescence, and never did like what the spray type dry shampoos were doing to my limp, tired-looking locks. I have fair hair so I made my own concoction following your advice and it works; it really works!
    Thank you SO much for helping me add this to my lineup of chemical-free soaps and cleaning products. <3
