How to Make Your Own Dry Shampoo

Let’s get real, who has the time to wash their hair daily?  I sure as hell don’t and not only that, but I have recently found out that for some hair types it is actually really bad for your hair to wash it everyday. So that is great news right? Less work every morning = more time to sleep in!

Since then I have obviously grown more accustomed to wearing makeup everyday, but that doesn’t mean that I spend a lot of time doing it.
