Dry shampoos are both easy to make and easy to use.
There are a number of different powders and starches that would work well in absorbing the oil from the air. You could consider using something you already might have in your kitchen cabinet like baking soda, corn starch, corn meal, cocoa powder, arrowroot or clays. White clay is good for all types of hair, while green clay is said to be especially good for oily hair. Mix the dry ingredients together well in a small glass bowl, slowly add your essential oils one drop at a time and then put into a clean spice shaker bottle. These make great dispensers for dry shampoo. If you don’t want to use the spice shaker bottle you could use an old make up brush to apply the powder to the hair roots.

Remember: You don’t want to apply too much powder, just enough to absorb some of the grease and you don’t want to have it build up on the scalp.
