I’m in love with the cocoa

img_0592Somehow, the concept of washing your hair everyday has become frowned upon. Dry-shampoo trend has marked its territory on store shelves and doesn’t seem to be leaving any time soon.

With life being busier than ever recently, I warmed up to the idea of an extra 20 minutes of sleep every morning instead of a long shower.

I made my own because 1) its cheaper and 2) no chemicals.


  • 1/4 cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 5 drops of essential oil (optional)

img_0594I know what you’re thinking – cocoa powder?! It’s to darken the mix if you don’t have light coloured hair. This cocoa powder situation has been interesting…After applying the mix, I sometimes find my bangs still look dirty so give them a wash and a blow-dry. Enter the smell of brownies. It smells like I’m cooking up a chocolate cake in my bathroom! The funniest was when I was at the gym, sweating up a storm and all of a sudden – BROWNIES. Not everyone can say their sweat smells like chocolaty goodness ;).

I’m surprised at how much I like this dry shampoo thing. I might just stick with it.

Also, cool thing that happened at the grocery store over the weekend: I went through the self-checkout line (bless my innocent soul) and as USUAL the machine started freaking out. Insert cashier assistant that starts keying in all these numbers and transferring me to a different counter. Long story short- I got 60$ off my bill because of the inconvenience. You go right ahead and inconvenience me every week young man.

Here goes another week!
