And what is more, you are spending hundreds of dollars to repair the damage of commercial dry shampoo products.

I want to stop this horrible cycle. So, this way to do that is to make my own homemade dry shampoo spray. After some research, I found isopropyl alcohol.

Homemade Dry Shampoo Spray Ingredients:

  • 3 table spoon of high proof alcohol (the level of alcohol should at least be 50%)*
  • 1 table spoon of filtered or distilled water**
  • ½ tea spoon of calcium carbonate
  • 10 drops of essential lavender oil – you can also select another essential oil.
*If you are using alcohol with higher percentage like 75% or 99% isopropyl, you may consider changing the ratio in the mixture. Probably 2 table spoons of alcohol will be enough for your homemade dry shampoo spray recipe. Since I have used 75% isopropyl alcohol, I still used 3 table spoons recipe.
**If you are using higher percentage of alcohol, you can increase water ratio to 2 table spoons.
