What is the magic device of witch craft that makes you look like a goddess with the hair of an angel in less than 5 minutes?! Dry shampoo. Hold the phone right? You gotta buy that stuff right? Think again. You can MAKE your own dry shampoo that is the exact scent to your favorite perfume/body spray/lovely smell.
How do you make this magicalness?
3 simple ingredients : water, rubbing alcohol, and cornstarch. (with the option of something that smells divine)
1 Tbl corn starch
1 Tbl rubbing alcohol
4 Tbl water
Combine all your ingredients into a whatever mixing vessel you have in mind and KABLAM! your unscented dry shampoo is done. Why does this work? The cornstarch absorbs the oils in your hair and the alcohol helps to dry the oils (along with the water you added to dilute the solution that makes it last longer).
( For those of you who are new to the dry shampoo, it is meant to be sprayed at the root where your hair is greasy. No need to coat your hair in this stuff to create a potentially caking effect. Just enough to spritz your roots and make that funk be gone. )
Here is the downside. It smells TERRIBLE. It reminded me of the sterile environment of a hospital and there isn't anything less sexy than that funky hospital smell. How do we rectify this stinky situation? The solution is so easy you may just tinkle with the sheer excitement of the endless choices you now have in play.
In steps your choice of body spray. The best part of this, body sprays are conveniently in a pump spray bottle which is perfect for applying the solution. Make sure this bottle is either clean and empty to allow for a new scent to be introduced with out mixing scents, or that there is a tablespoon or less of your desired scent in the bottle. Why does this work? It is alcohol based and mixes perfectly with your hair beautifying solution. You will have to shake up the mixture each time you use it since it settles, but big deal right?
The best bottle to use (I have found) are the travel size sprays found at Bath and Body Works. Not to mention the fact that some of these smell absolutely incredible.
Don't fret if your measurements are off a bit, this isn't an exact science. Just make sure your mix is VERY runny so you don't clog the pump and make sure you don't have a mix that is dominated by one ingredient. Easy right? Now go forth my lovelies, make the world beautiful in no time at all.
