Dry Shampoo technique

Posted by Wendy Ives

You will need a jar, safflower oil, apple cider vinegar, Ithaca Soap Foaming Pump or Ithaca Soap Olive oil Shampoo

Cream Rinse recipe:

Mix equal amounts of safflower oil and apple cider vinegar in the jar. You will have to shake often when using it to keep it mixed. 

Do this before you get in the shower!

Shampoo Technique:

1. Brush or coif hair in your regular manner.

2. Shake cream rinse and pour a little on your hands, and distribute on both hands and fingers.

3. Gently apply to your hair, by running your fingers between your hairs. Distribute the mix evenly from your roots down to the tips of your hair. Go slowly and gently, so as not to pull. Try to avoid getting a blob of this cream rinse all in one spot.

4. Let sit for 3-5 minutes.

5. You are still not in the shower.

6. Take either Olive Oil Shampoo or Foaming Liquid Soap and evenly apply to your hair ON TOP OF the cream rinse mix. Gently and thoroughly. Make sure you use enough. Put it on thick.

7. Now get in the shower. BUT only put a little bit of water on your hair and lather up. Scrub your scalp and gently scrub all of your hair. Be thorough. Get every inch of your head and hair. 

8. Rinse well. 

9. Take a much smaller amount of Olive Oil Shampoo or Liquid Foaming Soap (about 1/2 of what you normally shampoo with) and lather up again. Be thorough and gently get all of your hair and scalp.

10. Rinse well. Your hair will be a little squeaky.

11. After you finish your shower, towel dry your hair. Gently fluff up and separated your hair a little. If you have a natural curl, it will slowly curl up as you fluff it.

12. Let dry and either pick it (I never thought I'd pick my hair!) for the curly wild look, or brush it for the more refined quaffed look.

13. I have gone from washing my hair every 2 days to 1x a week! In the morning, if you want to fluff it up, wet your hands and evenly dampen your hair. It will take a few minutes to wake up.

14. Most of all, enjoy your new shampoo technique and new look.
