Dry Shampoo for Caregivers and Tight Squeezes

Dry Shampoo for Caregivers and Tight Squeezes

What more loving a thing to do for a person who is sick and unable to wash their hair in a shower, than to massage a dry shampoo through their hair and then comb it out.

Human contact is so important, and the feeling of hands massaging one’s scalp feels so good to most people. There are other times, too, when a dry shampoo comes in handy, such as while hiking, traveling, or during long power outages.

Most of us have these kitchen cupboard ingredients on hand, and this dry shampoo formula is as easy as just mixing them:

Dry Shampoo
1/2 cup cornmeal or other flour
1/2 cup almond meal, or other nut meal (nuts ground in a blender will do)

Combine the ingredients in a glass jar. Shake to blend. Dust the hair with the shampoo, massage it gently and lightly into the scalp, and then comb out.
