ARROWROOT POWDER: GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO DRY SHAMPOO


Arrowroot is a starch obtained from the rhizomes (rootstock) of several tropical plants, traditionally Maranta arundinacea.

Arrowroot powder is a natural and great alternative to dry shampoo. I think it soaks up the excess oil at the roots wonderfully! This is the only "dry shampoo" I use. The feeling of using a totally natural product in the hair is truly wonderful!

For brunettes: Mix equal parts arrowroot powder with cacao powder. If you want it to be slightly lighter, use cocoa powder instead.

Sprinkle the powder in your hand, rub the hands together and massage your roots and scalp.

Arrowroot powder can usually be found in the spice section of most grocery stores.

    1. Yes try it sweetie! Just mix equal parts of arrowroot powder with cacao powder in a small container, so whenever you need it, it's ready for you to use! Hope you like it! xx
