I love the caution about how messy this is; it's actually not so bad -- some additional tips: stand in the tub or shower or apply it just before you clean the bathroom! Lol! I think this worked quite well and uses ingredients you probably already have in the home, although I had to buy Borax. I also only used a little at first at the top of my scalp -- my bangs area -- just to make sure I don't get a reaction as I tend to be sensitive to a lot of products. I went in search of a dry shampoo after seeing a Dr. Oz episode recommending a dry shampoo over wet-washing your hair as that is very drying to the scalp. I will keep trying this. Thanks, Charishma_Ramchan! Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
