Cornstarch Doubles As A Chemical-Free Dry Shampoo Alternative, Helping Soothe Your Scalp While Absorbing Extra Oils And Adding Volume To Your Roots

Finally, one of the best benefits of using cornstarch versus other dry shampoo brands is that it is chemical-free. So many dry shampoos are full of chemicals that, over time, can do more harm than good to your hair. Plus, many of the sprays contain aerosol, which most of us know is bad for the environment.

Cornstarch is much more pure than most dry shampoos and does just as good, if not better, of a job on hair.

There are some things to consider before using cornstarch as dry shampoo. For instance, if you have a scalp that is often dry and prone to infection or serious irritation, you probably shouldn’t use it, as its absorbing properties may contribute to the dryness.

If you have dyed hair, dark hair, or bright-colored hair, cornstarch may be visible and leave a white or dusty look to your hair. If you use very small amounts and brush it through your hair thoroughly, you should be able to make it work, but you should be prepared for it to change your hair hue slightly.

If you have very tight curls or coils, it may be difficult to distribute the cornstarch evenly throughout your hair.

If you’d like to start using cornstarch as dry shampoo, here’s a quick guide for you!

Start by combing or brushing your hair to part it naturally and untangle it. Take a small amount of cornstarch, ideally no more than a teaspoon, and pour it onto your fingers. Then, lightly apply the cornstarch to your hair by massaging it into your roots and oily areas with your fingers.

Finally, brush through your hair one more time to distribute the cornstarch evenly until you’re satisfied with the results.

There you have it, your quick and easy guide for using one of the most fabulous dry shampoo alternatives. Try it out and see what you think!
