Have you ever used cocoa powder as a 'dry shampoo' between hair washing?

I have pretty long hair so no, I don't wash it every day. I find it dries out the ends WAY too bad to wash it more than every other day and I prefer every 3 days to keep it healthy. Anyway on that 3rd day I always where it pulled back just because it is starting to look 'not as fresh' (since my hair is used to this schedule it is not super greasy or smelly I swear- DH would tell me lol) Anyway I know some people use baby powder at this stage to help it through the day but my hair is darker. I just read cocoa powder (the baking kind) works the same for dark hair! I have GOT to try this! Have you done this?
