homemade bodycare

Commercial shampoo makers use all sorts of chemicals and synthetic ingredients to get the fragrant smells people love. So how do you get away from all that dangerous stuff? You can decide to make your own shampoo at home.

dry shampoo


A lot of people might be asking why you would ever try to replace your usual shampoo with a dry one. The reason is to preserve the natural moisture in your hair. Frequent shampooing reduces the natural moisture from your hair and scalp while dry shampooing preserves the natural moisture. It also eliminates odor and adds volume to your hair.

cornstarch and rice flour

Dry shampoo consists of a base mixed with varying ingredients. The base will always be a starchy product that will bring all the ingredients together. In this case, you will need cornstarch and rice flour alongside a tablespoon of peppermint oil for fragrance.

Mix all the dry ingredients and make sure that they are well sifted. Add the oil after the mixture is done and apply the dry shampoo using a makeup brush. Make sure to apply it all over your hair and that it covers the scalp.

Rice flour helps protect your hair from destructive UV rays. It also helps relieve sunburn. Cornstarch helps keep moisture within the deep layer which also prevents oil build-up.

baking soda and cornstarch
This home remedy is almost the same as the cornstarch-rice flour variant but uses baking soda instead. Add cornstarch and baking soda into a bowl and mix thoroughly. You may add some drops of essential oils to keep the mixture fragrant.

Apply a good amount of this mixture into your scalp especially at the roots and massage it with your fingertips. Use a hairbrush to brush the rest of your hair or you may use your fingers to do so. 

After using, you may store the excess dry shampoo to use for another day. Baking soda is a great ingredient to this dry shampoo as it prevents oily scalp and helps prevent the build-up of bacteria and other microorganisms in your scalp. 

The cornstarch home remedy keeps your hair dry and free from any moisture that may result in bacterial growth.

Oatmeal and Cornstarch
Oatmeal is rich in antioxidants and has great antibacterial properties. Blend the oatmeal thoroughly before adding cornstarch into the mix. Add a tablespoon of your favorite essential oil for fragrance and proceed to application.

Use a makeup brush or your fingers to apply the mix all over your hair. Make sure that it is applied thoroughly to the roots of the hair. 

This mix will help provide more structure to your hair and avoid an itchy scalp that will, later on, cause dandruff. 

Cinnamon/Cocoa Powder and Cornstarch
For redheads and brunettes, a cinnamon mix or a cocoa powder mix is the best option. It has a good amount of antibacterial properties. 

It is also rich in minerals and vitamins that will nourish your hair from root to tip. Cinnamon also prevents infection and inflammation on your scalp.

For redheads, add cinnamon to the cornstarch and mix thoroughly. Apply it on your scalp and to the tip of your hair. For brunettes, you may use cocoa powder which also adds a glossy layer as well as a wonderful smell to your hair.

homemade cosmetics

Homemade products don’t come in beautiful packages with designer labels, they don’t look as good, and will they have a limited shelf life. But, you will have great pleasure in making something for yourself, and you will know that they are safe for you, your family and the ones you love. Have fun!


Bentonite clay


Bentonite clay is charged with negative ions, so when combined with water and applied on skin or hair, it draws out all positively charged toxins and impurities. in short, it detoxes the hair, gets rid of excess oils and dandruff, it moisturizes, enhances shine, and promotes hair growth by unclogging the hair follicles.


For this recipe use a non-metalic bowl and spoon. Metals can cause  a chemical reaction with bentonite clay that reduces most of its healing properties. A wooden spoon and gass bowl are recommended.


1/4 – 1/2 cup filtered water (enough to make a runny paste consistency)

1 Tbsp. Bentonite clay

1 tsp. Coconut oil (optional)

1 Tbsp. Apple cider vinegar (optional)



Combine all the ingredients in a non-metal bowl and mix until it forms a paste. Massage the paste thoroughly into your wet hair. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes, then wash out.
