Green Beauty: Pick of the Week

Hello lovelies...I've got another green beauty pick for you and this one you can whip up tonight in about 5 minutes. You may even have everything you need already in your kitchen cupboard!

The lo down: Dry Shampoo is my secret weapon. I was horrified when I discovered the ingredients I was letting soak into my scalp and even more horrified that going green would mean having to ditch my beloved Klorane. I'd have to either start washing my hair everyday or looking like a grease ball? Neither of those options works for me. A little internet searching brought up some DIY's and now I can't believe I used to pay almost 20 bucks for a bottle of Klorane Dry Shampoo when all I needed was in my kitchen cupboard the whole time! I apply with an old blusher on my roots and anywhere else that looks particularly greasy... It's a life saver especially now with a babe. It can be a tad messy if you aren't careful so I'd put it on before getting dressed.

How to make it: Fill up a jar with organic arrowroot flour (I use Bob's Red Mill) and add enough cocoa powder to turn it a nice shade of brown to match your hair. If you're blonde, you can skip this step. Add in a few drops of your fav essential oil if you want to get fancy, but if you're using cocoa powder it will smell like chocolatey goodness already. (note: you could use cornstarch instead of arrowroot, but cornstarch is genetically modified so it's up to you how green you wanna go)

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading...
Love Desiree
