You may notice that we already have a dry shampoo
recipe for a brush-in powder on the blog. However, if you're looking for a natural dry shampoo that is not just a powder, but a spray, you are in luck. This spray-in dry shampoo is free from harsh or harmful chemicals. As an added bonus, this DIY uses a few drops of Rosemary oil for smooth, fresh, and healthy-looking hair.
While it does requre a little extra effort to obtain 99 percent isopropyl alchol—
you can get it either online or get it from your pharmacist—
the results are worth the time. However, you can also use four tablespoons of 50 percent isopropyl, and just take out the water (or six tablespoons of 70 percent to two tablespoons of water). When it comes to calcium carbonate, you will always want to buy the powder as opposed to buying the pills and crushing them yourself. The finer powder will mix better and go on your hair easier.
4 tablespoons 99 percent isopropyl alcohol
4 tablespoons distilled water
1 teaspoon powdered calcium carbonate
- Using a funnel, pour all ingredients into a four ounce glass spray bottle. It is better to use a pump head rather than a mister head to prevent clogging.
- Twist on lid and shake well. Calcium carbonate is insoluble, but will mix evenly with the alcohol and water when shaken. Always shake before each use.
- Spray mixture on roots and comb through hair.
Tip: Lavender, Cedarwood, and Peppermint are all great oils to try in this DIY.
