1Since washing your hair everyday may potentially dry your locks, dry shampoos were invented to recharge them sans a shower. Dry shampoos rock at absorbing odor and oil and in giving locks a volume boost, so it's absolutely a must to always have a bottle on your dresser. However, here in our country, dry shampoos are exteremely hard to find, and they're loaded with hair-damaging alcohol. But don't fret! Here's a sweet-smelling, all-natural dry shampoo recipe with ingredients you always have in your kitchen.

Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
3 to 5 drops of scented essential oils

Simply mix all of the ingredients together, and place them in a sealed jar. To apply, use a big, fluffy powder brush, and dust it on the roots. Wait for the dry shampoo to settle for five minutes before you style your hair.

What makes this recipe work? The cornstarch soaks up all the oil, while cocoa powder offsets the whiteness of the cornstarch and makes it smell so good (it's chocolate!). It also has antioxidants that are great for your scalp. Cinnamon, besides its heavenly scent, has bacteria-zapping and healing properties. Scented essential oils, like vanilla and orange, guarantee a heavenly whiff.
