I'm all about my hair on day 2 or 3 after a wash, the natural oils just make it look so much better than day 1. I typically only wash my hair 1-2 times per week, but sometimes it gets a little too oily and needs somethin more to make it through the week. Cue the dry shampoo.

I've tried so many dry shampoos, and while I love a handful of them, they cost a pretty penny and I prefer not to douse myself in chemicals if I can avoid it. I knew I had to make my own. It's sooo easy, works well, smells great, and lasts forever.

Quick Lavender Dry Shampoo:

Ingredients: 
1 cup arrowroot powder
20 drops of essential oil (I used lavender) 

Directions: 
1. Place arrowroot powder with essential oil in a bowl. Mix thoroughly. 
2. Store in airtight container*.   

*I put mine in 10 30 mL containers so that I could share with friends! 

I'm listening to September Rose by Cailin Russo.
