Full Answer

  1. Melt the coconut oil

    Place 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat it for five seconds. If the oil is already liquefied, do not heat it.

  2. Add shampoo and sea salt

    Add 3 tablespoons of sea salt, and mix it into the oil with a fork. Add 2 tablespoons of your favorite shampoo, and mix until all the ingredients are combined.

  3. Prepare the jar

    Wash the jar and its lid with warm water and hand soap. Dry them with a towel.

  4. Pack the shampoo into the jar

    Spoon the clarifying shampoo into the jar, seal it tightly, and wipe the exterior with a towel. This removes traces of coconut oil.

  5. Label the jar

    Wash your hands to remove oily residue, and dry them with a towel. Lay a waterproof adhesive label on a flat surface, and fill it in with a permanent marker. Remove the label's backing and place it on the jar.

    How do you make homemade dry shampoo?

    A:

    Dry shampoo can be easily made at home using nothing more than 1/4 cup of arrowroot or cornstarch and an old make up brush, with five optional drops of essential oils. Dry shampoos are made to absorb hair oils so that even when unwashed, one's hair will still look clean. While store-bought dry shampoos can be expensive and contain aerosols and unwanted chemicals, homemade dry shampoos can be made to have the same effect.
