Did you follow along on our BFB Hair Everywhere trip? The team loved sharing our adventure with you all!
One of our favorite stops was Brussels. Because, have you ever been to Belgium before? Nah? Well let me tell you my favorite part about it. In Brussels (a.k.a. the capital of Belgium), waffles, fries and chocolate shops dot every street corner. Literally, on every street corner. It’s a foodie’s paradise! Hungry for breakfast? Boom, grab a Liège waffle. Want a second breakfast? Snag a cone of fries (or as they say “frites”)— because the fries come in paper cones there! And then you finish off your breakfast with dessert, followed by second dessert, and so on and so forth, as you visit each chocolate shop you pass. Because these chocolate shops are epically beautiful and owned by generational, expert chocolatiers. I’m talking beautiful stacks, piled high, of some of the most delicious and (high!) quality chocolate in the world. All the heart eyes...
The BFB Hair Everywhere crew visited said chocolate shops and couldn't get enough of them. If you love chocolate, get to Belgium, girls. But, hey, do you want to know a secret? Chocolate can actually be good for your hairstyling! Well, sort of. Let me tell you how.
Have you lived through a day of hair, desperately needing to be washed, but don’t have the time/energy/desire to and are also totally out of dry shampoo? If you have, you know what a pain that day is. Or, as a brunette, have you ever fallen victim to those ashy roots caused by white dry shampoo residue? Embarrassing, when someone asks what the white stuff in your hair is, yeah? Ok, and do you ever die a little inside every time you drop $25 at Sephora for a can of hair powder? Well, I’ve got a solution for you and you and you. Chocolate.
I’m going to teach you how to make your own dry shampoo, that’s PERFECT for girls with rich, chocolatey roots (I’m looking at you brunettes, redheads and raven-haired gals). Only two ingredient are needed, it’s inexpensive and will maybe take you a solid minute to mix up.
What you need:
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (I got an extra dark blend, which will suit darker hair colors)
3 teaspoons corn starch (an excellent oil absorbing agent)
Mix the two ingredients together in a small bowl and apply to your roots with a clean, fluffy makeup brush. Pump your fingertips through your hair, blending it thoroughly.
Voila, that’s it! Clean feeling roots, no white residue. All thanks to chocolate. A gals best friend, right?
