  • In a clean, sterilized spray bottle, combine vodka, essential oils, Poly Suga Mulse D9, and Optiphen Plus. Swirl gently to combine.
  • Using a clean, dry funnel, pour the corn starch into the bottle. Shake well to combine.
  • If colouring your dry shampoo with clay, add it slowly until you reach your desired colour.
  • Screw on the lid and shake well until all clumps are removed. Shake again before each use.


Corn starch and clay will clog and ruin fine mist spray bottles. To avoid clogging, choose a spray bottle with a large trigger nozzle, such as this one.
If you’re adding clay to your dry shampoo spray, start with 1 tbsp and work up to your desired colour. See my tips above for customizing your dry shampoo for all hair colours.
