Dry shampoos are a fantastic and convenient way to refresh day old hair and make it last a bit longer between washes. Sometimes dry shampoos can run a little bit on the expensive side, so this DIY shampoo tutorial is a great money-saving alternative to store bought bottles.

To make your own DIY dry shampoo, all you need is cornstarch, cinnamon and essential oils. The cornstarch acts as an absorbing agent that soaks up any excess hair oils your scalp produces. The cornstarch will also give your day old hair a much needed kick of volume. You can add cinnamon and essential oils for an aromatic, fragrant scent. If you have dark, brown-toned hair, add cocoa powder to the cornstarch so that the dry shampoo blends in better with your hair coloring.
