Homemade Dry Shampoo

February 23, 2017

Y’all I’m a little embarrassed to say, but I’m just getting on board with the whole dry shampoo thing.

I know, I know! But every thing I’ve tried has always left my hair super greasy and well, just gross. I’ve tried several different things and just couldn’t ever find anything that worked. So, I had been trying to stretch my un-dry shampooed hair to three days, but by day 4 I was literally feeling like I had slept in a grease bath.

A few weeks ago, I was browsing instagram and saw a recipe for homemade dry shampoo, using only four ingredients. Hmm, I thought. Well, I guess I didn’t have anything to lose, except for the grease….and even better was that being homemade meant no crazy chemicals sitting in my hair for days and days on end. [I’m starting to get a little freaked by how many chemicals are in things I use e.v.e.r.y.DAY, hence my growing love for essential oils].

So, I got out the four ingredients:
-2 tbsp cornstarch
-2 tbsp cocoa powder [omit for blonde hair]
-3 drops Lavender
-3 drops Rosemary

Then I mixed them all together in a bowl, and scooped it in to a plastic salt shaker I found at the door store. BOOM. Instant dry shampoo. I shook some over the tops of my head, and worked it in to my roots [did this before bedtime], and you’re not gonna believe this…but it WORKED! I am able to make it about 5-6 days now without washing my hair and just using my little homemade dry shampoo.

I don’t think I’ll ever buy aerosolĀ again!

Oh Lordy, my Lordy. What a week! Holly girl is going through some serious teething, and I think it’s making all of us a little nuts. Her top four front teeth are all heading in [or out]. And it’s been a tiring few days. She’s mostly in good spirits, but is extremely clingy and really […]

February might be one of my favorite months. For one, any reason to have a month filled with pink, cream, gold, and sparkly hearts, is my kind of month. I am a die hard romantic. I think there’s something so mystical about winter snow, but the verge of spring poking through. And who doesn’t love […]

Snickerdoodle Doughnuts

February 14, 2017

In an effort to spread more love throughout the month of February, doughnuts just seem like the right way to go. Especially when they’re homemade, baked not fried, and then covered in cinnamon sugar. The funny thing about holidays with kids now, is trying to teach them the meaning of each holiday and why we […]

Reading List

February 8, 2017

I’ve been working on a new goal for about 4 months now, READING! When I was younger, like back in the Lisa Frank, Littlest Pet Shop Days, I used to love reading. I had made this little reading corner in my room [I think it stemmed from watching Beauty and the Beast and Belle being […]

Holly: 46 Weeks Old

February 6, 2017

I think we’re on the verge of a few new teeth. The last few days Holly has been super clingy, really fussy, acting like a crazy girl, and we just couldn’t figure it out. Then this morning she woke up and her top gum is a little swollen and there’s some changes happening where the […]
