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!!!

Oh boy! My hair is not that greasy but college is really keeping me busy, I just don't have time for doing anything to my hair so I decided I would try this DIY.
Well, my skin is acne prone (mild) and this DIY started giving me cysts around my hairline after a day of using it so I discontinued it and everything came back to normal. So in my experience, it does not work for acne prone …

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 my go-to moving forward. No more nasty chemicals in the air or allergies from commercial dry shampoo!

Occasionally, I'll be super stressed out or my hormones will go wonky, and I'll get the dreaded Smelly Scalp Syndrome. The slightest bit of oil build up on the scalp and the whole head gets this sour, cheesy, pillowhead smell. And I can't even shampoo every day due to my hair type. Yuck. It sticks around for a few weeks usually, and all I can do is try to mitigate the annoyance …Read more

This is the beauty of makeup alley - word gets out about a DIRT cheap product that works so damned well on your face and hair. Have bleached blonde hair, and my bangs get a bit oily overnight. In the morning throw my head over and take say half a palm's worth of cornstarch and rub it into my roots. Then comb out. If you're blonde, the cornstarch will make your hair lighter. …Read more

ive been using cornstarch as dry shampoo for probably about a year and a half now. i started using it with cocoa powder but eventually decided it was easier to blend without any add-ins, plus i didnt like how red the cocoa made my hair look.

i have applied before using a powder brush and at the moment im just using a salt shaker to shake it out into my hand and apply directly to my …

I LOVE this stuff!!! It removes the oil and gives my hair bounce and volume it doesn’t weigh it down or give me that sticky residue as with regular aerosol spray dry shampoo. I tried the cocoa powder mix but I did not like it I prefer it on its own. The cocoa powder left a lingering scent and on it’s own it has no scent which I prefer. I have dark hair but I have no problem with it being very …Read more

I have a short, A-line bob that requires a lot of flat ironing to look decent. I use this at night after a wash, and I wake up with fresh, not greasy hair. I'm trying to go longer without shampooing my hair, and cornstarch is my bestfriend!

I have not tried this as a setting powder but as a dry shampoo it's awesome! I just bleached my hair and trying to go long in-between washes to keep it healthy. Someone commented on my hair today saying I have thick hair, but really it's thin! Didn't know it was even good for volume
