Out of dry shampoo? Some alternatives that you can find in your house

Could you dry shampoo your hair without actually using dry shampoo?

We all have bad hair days, and that is nothing out of the ordinary, especially when you just shampooed the day before, and your hair now is an oily mess. And quite frankly, who has time for whole shampoo conditioner routine early in the morning and then style it to make you look like a diva. Yes, you can try to do that on some special days, but it is neither practical and nor doable every single day. That is where dry shampoo comes as a blessing. You can clean your hair by spraying it on your roots, and voila! You are good to go. But what if you are out of dry shampoo? Don’t fret; we have some great alternatives that you can find in your home for dry shampoo.

Baby powder

This product is the holy grail when it comes to tackling oily roots. Much before we had dry shampoo at our beck and call, our mothers relied on baby powder as an alternative to shampooing. Moreover, it is quite cheaper and economical if you are going out for a few hours. Just sprinkle a bit of shampoo on your scalp directly and rub it all in. Comb your hair and style like you usually do, and you are good to go.

Blotting paper

Hair hack 101, if you can’t find baby powder or dry shampoo in a hurry, then use blotting paper; if you are out of it, then you could also use paper towels. Blotting paper not only helps take oil from your face and T-Zone but also can do the same for your scalp. Part your hair in sections and run the paper towel or blotting part to your roots. And you are ready for that last-minute presentation or client interview.

Hair sanitizers

Surprised? Well, don’t be. Sanitizers are perfect replacements dry shampoo. And in the current state of things, we always do carry sanitizers. The alcohol present in a hand sanitizer can soak excess oil that can make your hair look limp and dull. Just squeeze out a bit of sanitizer and run your fingers through your scalp and tresses.

Apart from this, there are many other options as a replacement of dry shampoo are apple cider vinegar mixed with water, Cocoa and cornstarch mix and lastly, your very own perfume. Say hello to great hair and bye to oiliness.
