Now that my hair is long, I don't like to wash it everyday. And so I am a firm believer in dry shampoo. Are you? I used to use Suave, even though I never liked the smell. But then I noticed that my scalp burned each time after I used it. And my hair was falling out at an alarming rate. That might be totally unrelated, but I decided to stop using it anyway, just in case.
Instead, I mix 1/4 cup of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of baking soda in an old spice jar. I read that you can add unsweetened cocoa to darken it a bit for brown hair, if you'd like. But here's the trick: before I go to bed, I sprinkle a little on my palms and gently rub my hands together. Then I sweep my hands through my hair, concentrating on my roots. I do this a few times, making sure to hit the areas most prone to grease. Then I brush my hair to distribute the powder. When I wake up in the morning, my hair is fresh and clean, without a trace of the powder, and with a lot more body. I don't know what I would do without it.
