DIY Tuesday: How To Fix Greasy Hair And Add Volume (In Seconds)


Volume: it’s the key to a sexy, luscious mane. The only problem is we’re not all blessed with big, beautiful tresses! But that doesn’t mean you can’t fake it by using a little volumizing powder. So, when your second-day hair is looking limp and not-so-fresh, all you need is a little something to give it lift. We’ve formulated a DIY volumizing powder, and honestly, it’s the It’s actually like a dry shampoo-volumizing hybrid that’ll lift your hair, nourish your tresses, and detox your scalp. We admit it may be a little messy, but it totally works.

What makes this formula so damn special?

Ok, so like we said, this volumizing spray is more like volumizing dry shampoo, that’ll transform your locks and give them some serious oomph. It’s perfect for day-two hair that’s a little on the greasy side! As it’s a powder, it’ll instantly lift the hair and soak up any excess oil that’s weighing your hair down and making it look flat.

But don’t worry, it won’t dry out your hair as the 2-3 drops of tea tree oil will nourish and hydrate the hair follicle, getting rid of any dry and brittle ends without looking greasy. Plus, as tea tree is antimicrobial, it’ll cleanse the scalp, soothe any itchiness, and reduce dandruff. The next hero ingredient is bentonite clay, which is a healing clay that’ll draw out toxins and grease from the hair while boosting shine – it’s a great source of calcium. Finally, to color the powder to match your hair, find an eyeshadow and add it to the mixture.
