    Thank you! Then I think that I'll try it I already use a makeup brush for my cocoa powder mix

    I've heard of also using coco powder as a dry shampoo for darker hair, with the bonus that you then smell like chocolate, but I haven't tried it yet!

    I recently was in a pinch and needed to clean up my greasy looking oiled hair. I forgot I had an appointment and had just oiled my hair the day before. I had no time to wash and dry, so I experimented with baby powder. It worked like a charm!

    There's a shampoo and conditioner from the brand Hask that uses activated charcoal, so I can imagine that charcoal powder could work, but I have no clue how easy it is to remove it from the hair. I use ghassoul as dry shampoo. It's darker than cornstarch, but not that dark. Cocoa powder does not work me. It's too sticky somehow.

    Cocoa powder is too sticky for me too, even though I make sure it has absolutely no sugar in it. I'll have to check out ghassoul, the grains are probably a lot finer than charcoal is!
