A) Cornstarch Dry Shampoo

What you’ll need:

¼  cup cornstarch

1 tablespoon baking soda

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

How To:

Mix ingredients. Add cocoa powder depending on your hair’s colour. Add 1 tablespoon for dark hair and nothing for blonde hair — choose per your needs. Using an old makeup brush, dab the powder on oily roots and strands. Let it sit for about 5 to 10 minutes and then comb from roots to tip.


Cornstarch has the right balance of Omega-3 & Omega-6 fatty acids and Vitamin E which repair damaged hair and prevent scalp infections and irritation.


B) Oatmeal Dry Shampoo

What you’ll need:

1 cup oatmeal

1 cup baking soda

How To:

Blend the oatmeal to make fine powder and mix with baking powder. Rub the mix on greasy hair and leave it for about 2 minutes. Comb hair downwards from root to tip.


Oatmeal contains natural cleansers like saponins that remove excess sebum and dirt without causing dryness or irritation. It also contains vitamin A which promotes hair growth and repairs damaged hair.


C) Dry Clay Shampoo

What you’ll need:

½ cup dry clay powder (agar, white clay or green clay)

2 tablespoons powdered milk

How To:

Mix the ingredients together and apply on oily roots and hair. Leave it for about 5 minutes and then brush from roots to tips.


Silica present in dry clay strips away the excess sebum (natural oils produced by scalp) while powdered milk keeps the hair soft and prevents it from drying and roughness.



D) Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth) Dry Shampoo

What you’ll need:

2 tablespoons Fuller’s Earth (Multani Mitti)

1 tablespoon cinnamon powder

2 drops of lavender essential oil (Optional)

How To:

Mix all the ingredients well and apply the mixture on oily and greasy scalp with your fingertips. Leave it on for about 5 to 10 minutes and comb from roots to tip.


Fuller’s earth is natural absorbent which removes excess oil and dirt from hair and its anti-inflammatory properties fight against scalp infections.
