Fat and the Moon admits to having a slight preoccupation with dry shampoos. They are really, really cool. It ain’t great for the health of your hair and scalp to wash your hair every day, dry shampoo absorbs oil and add body so ‘no shower day’ can be ‘awesome hair day’. Yet upon inspection of the dry shampoos out there on the shelf, even the products deeming themselves ‘natural’ are loaded with aluminum. Applying aluminum to your armpits is bad, but to your head- where your brain lives, is just stupid. And breathing aluminum powder in? Faa-get about it.
Any powder you are applying that close to your grill should damn well be edible. I’ve been experimenting with just the right proportions of starch to cocoa to clay for months. The cocoa adds a yum smell and adds a little color so your hair doesn’t look dull and powdery, and the starch and clay absorb oil. The light brown color will work with all hair shades. A little lavender essential oil promotes a healthy scalp. Beware, the combination of lavender and chocolate may send you on a expensive chocolate bar binge.
To use, dip a makeup brush into the powder and tap off the excess. Part your hair at its oiliest sections and apply the powder using the brush. You may want to wrap a towel around your shoulders as not to get powders on you threads. Once you’ve applied the powder to your satisfaction, turn your head upside down and brush through. Viola! You are now a chocolate crowned goddess/god!2 oz will last you a long time, even with regular use.
