I don’t wash my hair everyday! And I’m sure you don’t like too either 🙂 The key to pulling this off?!?…hair powder! Hair powder smells great, cleans up day-old dirt, plus adds volume without additional residue.
If you’re blonde like me you can use good old-fashioned baby powder! Nothing says fresh and clean like a baby’s bottom and for $2 here it’s a life (and shower!) saver. I keep a large bottle under my sink and a small size for travel. Here’s how to powder…
Step 1…sprinkle powder onto fingertips
Step 2…rub powder directly into the first 1-2 inches of hair right off the scalp
Step 3…rub powder in well (or it will wind up looking greyish)
Step 4…use blow dryer to blow out excess powder
Step 5…style as usual
Bonus for blondes…baby powder helps hide roots too 😉
Another option…Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo found here or here for $19. This powder (below left) smells amazing and has an excellent mess-proof applicator enabling you to apply powder directly onto your part!
Now if you’re of a darker hair hue, Bumble and Bumble has created an incredible line of tinted hair powders (above right) to pull off this little trick. Four fabulous shades can be found here or here. For $35 these powders not only dry away dirt, but also add volume and help camouflage roots!
Go ahead girl…be dirty 😉
