Worked as a dry shampoo but broke me out along my hairline. Gonna try arrowroot next and hopefully I'll have better results.

To avoid powdery, matte look on scalp, brus this on roots at bedtime. You hair will absorb the cornstarch and you will wake up with fresh hair!!!

No chemicals! I did what one other reviewer suggested and made up a small pot of 1 part baking soda to 4 parts cornstarch. I used a blush brush to brush onto my hair. Worked a treat! This will be...

I love using cornstarch in my hair as a styler. It beats the Hair Volume powders. I flip over my hair, apply it to the roots and style as usual. I recommend this over any well known expensive...

I use cornstarch on days I don't wash my hair to absorb oil. I use just a dusting on my fingertips, then I rake through hair at the scalp. It adds super volume too!
