I Tried The Viral TikTok Hack For Oily Hair – I Really Didn’t Expect Much And Here’s What Really Happened

DRY Shampoo is a godsend for those days when you don’t have time to wash your curls.

But what if the regular drugstore version no longer works and you crave something more natural? Well, the TikTok beauty community is raving about a homemade dry shampoo made from cornmeal.

There have been tons of tutorials and positive reviews for this cheap hack – but is it really good? Does it even compare to the store bought twin?

A beauty enthusiast, Alyssa Marie Pena (@alyssamariepenaa), from the United States, decided to see for herself and shared her thoughts on the popular social media platform.

“My hair is getting super greasy, probably like the third day I haven’t washed it,” Alyssa shared in her video, before dabbing a brush in the homemade mixture.

As the TikTok user has dark hair, she also added cocoa powder to make it a bit darker.

For a more even application without a ton of residue, Alyssa parted her hair into several sections and covered them with the fluffy brush.

She then waited around five minutes before gently brushing her locks – and it’s safe to say that Alyssa was stunned by the results.

Not only did the DIY dry shampoo soak up all the oils, but the inexpensive trick gave her hair tons of volume.

Although she admitted that she overdid it with the top part, Alyssa gave the hack a very positive review, giving it a “10/10” rating.

But while she praised the cornmeal mix, social media users were less than impressed – many thought she should have just jumped in the shower.

One commented, “Girls day 3, just wash it off. »

A professional in the field advised: “As a hairdresser, the best trick is to use dry shampoo at night before bed so that it soaks in while you sleep.

“Just use baby powder, don’t put food on your hair,” is another recommendation.

“See, but I don’t know how I feel when my hair smells like coconut powder,” one TikTok was unsure.

If you’re a dry shampoo stalwart, though, read on as a beauty fan recently revealed the right way to spray — and it makes all the difference.

Nicole, who is known to her 54,000 TikTok fans for her hair tutorials, took to social media, where she shared the trick in a video titled “One of my dry shampoo secrets best guarded”.

Most of us tend to spray product directly onto the top layer of our hair — and if that’s you, Nicole urged us to stop making that mistake.

Instead, she demonstrated, start with one part and take a small section in the middle.

Holding it and aiming it to the other side, take your favorite dry shampoo and spray directly on the roots.

“You will continue to cut your head off.

“When you go down, it doesn’t matter how thick or how big the sections are.

“And when you flip your hair, it gives you so much volume,” she said before running her fingers through it.

Sharing the hack, Nichole claimed it would make mixing the powder “much easier” and you wouldn’t get any white marks on your head.

“Next time you use dry shampoo, try this trick!”
