How to Clean Your Hair Without Water

When I was 16, I had an operation which put me in bed for several weeks, during which time I couldn't shower. I remember that my mother sprayed something in my hair that we combed out, enabling me to have somewhat clean hair without taking a shower.

I did a bit of research, and while I didn't find the product any more, I did find something else. Cornstarch. Yup, cornstarch. It's the starch of corn/maize and available in any supermarket. It can also store well in a moisture-proof container. I don't recommend using this all of the time, but this "dry shampoo" will work in a pinch!

What You'll Need:
1/2 cup cornstarch

Take the cornstarch and sprinkle it in your hair. Give it a few minutes to absorb then brush it out. It will absorb the oils in the hair.

chickens take dust baths so U could too. I would nt recommend it, combing out the starch wold probably be a pain as it would stick to your oily scalp.
Back packers use no rinse shampoo it dries in your hair and u comb it out. also i have some invalid shampoo (developed by NASA) that u lather in then towel out still wet , i tried it and was NOT impressed. my head smelled like shampoo.
