Choco head…..(natural dry shampoo alternative)

Don’t laugh but there’s a seriously chocolatey smell surrounding my head right now. You see, I’m a big fan of dry shampoo and baking and these two worlds have just collided and I’m not sure how I feel about it. If you’ve not come across it, dry shampoo is a powder which you spray on your hair, leave for a minute then comb out.  It helps get rid of that greasy feeling if you don’t want to wash your hair properly and it gives your hair body too. I love it for those days when I really should wash my hair but I would rather have a little longer in bed.

Anyway, I was googling natural alternatives for dry shampoo and apparently if you are a brunette then cocoa powder mixed with arrowroot is the way to go. I don’t have any arrowroot and I wasn’t entirely convinced about the coca powder but there it was.  A shiny pack of cocoa powder sitting in amongst the baking ingredients in the cupboard.  I just had to try it.

And here I am. With chocolate flavoured hair.

I have to say though, it does work.  My hair looks and feels very similar to when I use the dry shampoo.  It also doesn’t smell as chocolatey as it did when I first put it on my hair.  So I think it’s a winner….  I should probably do it properly using arrowroot next time though.
