There’s a huge rage right now called “dry shampoo”. Basically it’s stuff you put in your hair when you don’t have time to shower and it’s maybe a little oily. Welcome to my life. I haven’t had time to shower since 1999 but I try to do it daily anyway.
A search on the internet, thanks to Al Gore, revealed dry shampoo for sale with prices varying between $9 to $25 dollars for approximately 3 ounces. I don’t spend that much on my hair products. My hair is already gray and I’m
only 30 25 with no hope of having super model hair. I need spandex undergarments worse than I need $25 dollar dry shampoo.
So you know what my secret for oily hair is? Baby powder. Every single mom has a few jars of this stuff laying around especially since they now recommend you don’t use it on babies anymore but every single baby gift basket still comes with it inside. Plus if you don’t have any, you can find it at the dollar store. I don’t think you can find Bumble to Bumble dry shampoo at the dollar store.
So what do you do?
Pour a small amount into the palm of your hand. Start with a very small amount and just slowly add more as needed.
Rub your hands slowly together, spreading it all over your palms, until it looks like your hands have aged 20 years in the last ten seconds.
Every single line and wrinkle in your hands will be very prounounced. (You’re welcome).
Now take your hands and rub them, fingers spread, against your scalp. Rub lightly until all the white coloring is gone. I do this usually about three times in a row using small amounts each time depending on how oily and gross my hair was to begin with. I also used it today after swimming to break up some old product that was in my hair and give it some body.
If you use baby powder instead of dry shampoo you will save money, smell fantastic, and it gives your hair some great body. It is definately worth giving a try. After all, the worst thing that can happen is that you get granny hands for a few seconds.
Let me know if you try it and what you thought!
