No Poo

Dry Shampoo for when you are No Poo

When going No Poo, the goal is to allow our hair to produce its natural oils and maintain itself. A benefit of the No Poo method, is washing less frequently while having clean, healthy hair. Now I live in Florida, so the summers are hot, hot hot and sticky. So naturally, after 5 or 6 days my roots look oily, even though the hair is clean. After doing my No Poo Saturday research I have found the most delicious way to combat oily roots while maintaining fresh No Poo'd hair.

What You will need:

Cocoa Powder (Not the hot chocolate mix but baking cocoa, make sure there are no sugars or additives in it)
Corn Starch or Arrow Root
Bowl
Measuring Cup
Measuring Spoon
Essential Oils Optional
What You Do:

For Dark Hair:

You will need:

¼ Cup Cocoa Powder
2 TBLSP Corn Starch or Arrow Root
How to use:

Mix in a bowl till the corn starch has been thoroughly mixed in the cocoa.

Put the mixture in a container with a shaker top (the container I chose was a bit to small for the amount I prepared, so I put the excess in a tightly sealing plastic container)

Sprinkle a small amount of the mixture to your roots where ever you feel they look oily.

Massage this into your scalp and leave on for a few minutes, giving it time to soak up any excess oil.

Brush or comb out.

Viola!! Your hair will look and feel great and you smell delish!!

For Light Hair:

cup of corn Starch or Arrow Root
2 tablespoons of baking soda
Mix in a bowl till the corn starch has been thoroughly mixed in the baking soda.

Put the mixture in a container with a shaker top (the container I chose was a bit to small for the amount I prepared, so I put the excess in a tightly sealing plastic container)

Sprinkle a small amount of the mixture to your roots where ever you feel they look oily.

Massage this into your scalp and leave on for a few minutes, giving it time to soak up any excess oil.

Brush or comb out.

Viola!! Your hair will look and feel great.

NOTE:
You can use corn starch alone, but if you’re worried about the scent, the baking soda will absorb
it and makes this concoction scent-free. You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to give it a wonderful fragrance of your choosing. I am not going to fib, I love the smell of the Cocoa dry poo, because it smells so yummy!
