It's no lie that a good hair day can enhance your mood. Everybody would like to have fresh, clean and wonderful smelling hair all of the time but we know a daily wash can strip the natural oils. Instead, we have the life-changing product - dry shampoo! We all know how much of a saviour dry shampoo can be and this is a super easy recipe that you can create at home and customise to your hair colour.

 

All dry shampoos have one purpose - reduce grease, dirt and oil from our hair. When it comes to store-bought aerosol dry shampoo, it is filled with chemicals such as butane, isobutane, propane, or other gases. It can also leave an unpleasant fake smell of artificial fragrance which can be harmful to our health. Choosing natural alternatives can help reduce the amount of toxins you are exposed to on a regular basis and still have the same benefits.
