Have you overslept, there is no hot water, you can't keep up or you just don't feel like it? We understand you, sometimes washing your hair is a real nuisance.

Dry shampoo not only saves a lot of time (washing, drying and then conditioning the hair can eat up more than enough of it), but also really benefits the hair. It is also a great companion when traveling and an indispensable helper during the not-so-pleasant period that can occur when switching from ordinary shampoos to solid ones.

For a great feeling

I used to wash my hair every day. Fortunately, I found out that it is not good for me or the environment. But because I need to feel good in my own skin, I had to find another way to keep my hair fresh and clean without soaking it unnecessarily. Drugstore dry shampoos never worked for me, I only used baby powder for a few months (and that works really well when I run out of homemade dry shampoo, I always like to go back to it), but it still wasn't the same. So I decided to mix my dry shampoo myself. And it's absolutely perfect! Really… it makes my hair so nice and soft that I have to control myself not to put it on my hair, even though it's freshly washed.

And won't it ruin the hair?

Not at all! What is demonstrably not good for hair and scalp is washing them every day. The hair then loses its natural oils and sebum, and thus becomes more fragile and prone to damage and breakage. Alternating washing your hair (using gentle foaming, liquid or solid shampoos and conditioners) with refreshing it with dry shampoo will help keep it healthy and hydrated.

What can it do?

It will immediately add volume to the brush and the hair will have a thicker impression.

Get rid of greasy or frizzy hair.

Keeps hair healthier, extends the time between individual washes.

It smells wonderful.

It saves a lot of time, makes life easier and saves money incredibly.

Easy and quick to use.

It is a great companion for travel, in your purse, for mornings when you have nothing to do, after exercise, before an important meeting...

It is made from super healthy natural ingredients (which you can also use for a lot of other things, such as a face mask, mineral make-up or sparkling water for the toilet).

What does it take?

- Bentonite - is the star of our dry shampoo, it copes with grease, the hair is soft after its use and the scalp is calmed.

- Corn or potato starch - absorbs excess oil and leaves hair beautifully soft.

- Oat colloidal powder - soothes stressed, damaged and irritated skin. Helps relieve dry and itchy skin, strengthens hair, increases its elasticity and fights against breakage.

- Clays - they partly take care of the desired color of our homemade dry shampoo, and give the brush a fresh look. Kaolin is great for everyone, whether you're mixing blow dryers for dark, light or rusty hair. Reach for Moroccan clay if you want a shampoo for brunettes, for red clay if you are making a shampoo for rusty hair. Blondes have it easier these days and they don't really need to dye the shampoo. But if you want a shampoo that tints your hair "yellow", add yellow clay.

- Baking soda - will ensure that the hair looks like it has been freshly washed.

- Brunettes and redheads with darker hair will also need cocoa, which will color the shampoo brown. If you have raven hair, reach for activated charcoal. It will ensure that you don't look like you just fell into flour after using dry shampoo. If you want red highlights, add a little cinnamon. And if you have colored oxides at home (which are left over after making mineral make-up, for example), don't be afraid to play with them and conjure up a color that fits your hair exactly.

- Rosemary essential oil - smells wonderful but is also just perfect for hair. It will support their growth, limit shedding and prevent inflammatory processes on the scalp.

- Mint in turn stimulates the hair roots, stimulates the mind and provides positive energy.

- And lavender soothes (you and irritated skin), regenerates cells and acts against headaches.

How much is needed?

The recipe is really very variable, you don't need to use all the ingredients we mentioned, only bentonite, starch and a few drops of your favorite essential oil are enough for an excellent dry shampoo (but avoid citrus ones). Don't be afraid to go crazy, play with the amount of individual ingredients and mix a helper that suits you.

Eco-friendly conditions

- 2 tablespoons of starch (corn, potato or rice flour)

- 1 and ½ spoons of bentonite

- 1 tablespoon of clay (for your hair type)

- ½ tablespoon of baking soda (not suitable for everyone, if you have sensitive skin, skip it)

- ½ spoon of oat powder

- 5 drops of rosemary essential oil

- 5 drops of peppermint essential oil

- 5 drops of lavender essential oil

- ½ spoon of cocoa (for darker hair, the amount depends on the color you want to achieve, you can increase up to several spoons)

- And according to the desired colorant: activated carbon, cinnamon, color oxides

How to do it?

Mix all the selected ingredients well in a bowl, do not use anything metallic (bentonite and metal do not understand each other). Take a look at the shade and adjust it if necessary. When you're happy with the color, pour the powder into the container and that's it!

We do not allow powder packaging with a strainer, which greatly facilitates the application of dry shampoo.

And how to actually use it?

Comb the hair, then sprinkle the powder in sections at the roots, either using a cosmetic brush or a bag with a strainer. Let the dry shampoo do its work for a while, then treat yourself to a massage and work the powder into the skin. After that, all you have to do is quickly comb out the excess dry shampoo with a comb or brush and voilà… the hair is fresh, voluminous and smells wonderful!

Can't do without dry shampoo, either? Or haven't you given it a chance yet?
