I tried the viral TikTok hack for greasy hair – I really wasn’t expecting much and here’s what actually 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 doesn’t work anymore and you’re craving something more natural? Well, the TikTok beauty community has been raving about a DIY dry shampoo made from cornmeal.

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

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

“My hair gets super greasy, probably like the third day I didn’t wash it,” Alyssa explained in her video, before dabbing a brush into the homemade mixture.

Since the TikTok user has dark hair, she also added some cocoa powder to make it a little darker.

For a more seamless application without a ton of residue, Alyssa parted her hair into several sections and went over it with the fluffy brush.

She then waited about five minutes before gently brushing her locks — and it’s safe to say 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 she overdid it with the top part, Alyssa gave the hack a very positive review, rating it a “10/10”.

But while she praised the cornmeal mix, social media users were less than impressed — many felt she should have just hopped in the shower.

One commented: “Girls day 3 just wash it.”

One professional in the field advised, “As a hairstylist, the best trick is to actually use dry shampoo at night before bed so it soaks up as you sleep.”

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

“See, but idk how I feel when my hair smells like coconut powder,” one TikTok was unsure.

If you’re a dry shampoo loyalist, however, read on because one 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 Best Kept Dry Shampoo Secrets.”

Most of us tend to just spritz product right 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 a part and take a small section down the middle.

Holding it and directing it to the other side, grab your favorite dry shampoo and spray straight onto the roots.

“You will continue to take cuts through your head.

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

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

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

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