I know: you’re a slave to Batiste Clean and Classic Original. But when you just can’t be arsed to go to Boots, this DIY dry shampoo recipe can be a life saver.

All you need?

Cornflour and a little bit of bicarbonate of soda (plain old baby powder works too, but I find cornflour to be more oil absorbent).

For brunettes, add some cocoa to avoid the telltale grey dry shampoo cast. Redheads can use cinnamon.

You’ll also need a paper cone and container to hold the the shampoo mix.

First, add 1/4 cup of cornflour.

Followed by 1 tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda. To be honest, if you only have the corn flour, it will still do the trick.

Dark haired babes, go on and add your cocoa. Bonus, your hair will smell like chocolate. Make sure to use unsweetened cocoa or your hair will be a sticky mess. Redheads can mix in some cinnamon to smell like a sweet cinnamon roll all day (and the colour will match your hair better).

Shake it all up. Too easy, guys.

Apply with a makeup brush and you’re set. The cheapest dry shampoo ever.
