Morning eKa CIRCLE
A while ago I made some dry shampoo and thought I would share how simple it is to make. I have been growing my hair much longer over the past few years in an attempt to embrace everything natural, yet old habits of washing my hair every few days proves trickier with long hair. Not to mention the severe drought in Australia at the moment! Any ways to avoid using excess water and petrochemicals in most purchased hair products really appeals to me. So now in-between washes particularly when I am busy, a sprinkle of this dry shampoo freshens and absorbs any excess oil at the roots. If you have dark hair try substituting cacao powder for the oat flour. I would really love to experiment making shampoo bars next. Let me know if you have any tips.
I have been saving and repurposing glass bottles that had dried herbs and spices in them. A quick wash and some eucalyptus oil to remove the sticky labels is all that is needed to revamp to a shaker for your dry shampoo.
To use sprinkle a little of the dry shampoo onto the roots of your hair and massage into the scalp. Brush any excess out. This recipe is safe for children and pets as well.

1/3 cup oat flour
few drops of frankincense essential oil
few drops of lavender essential oil
Mix to combine and spoon into a clean glass bottle. Use a funnel to avoid spills. Store in a cool dark cupboard.
