Today's Tip: Baby Powder Your Hair

Today's Tip: Baby Powder Your Hair

If you are a blonde (whether natural or not) like me, you know that your roots can start to look a little greasy if you don't wash your hair every day. A cool tip that I learned that I wanted to pass along is that a little dash of Baby Powder can help absorb the oils.

So, the next time you don't have time to wash and dry your hair before running out the door, just sprinkle a little powder and you are good to go! Johnson's Baby Powder available here for $5.29.

Lol, it really does work, but I wouldn't reccommend it unless u were really desparate, like if a friend suddenly calls u up 2 go out & u haven't washed ur hair, but yeah always check in the mirror to make sure its not visable!

This seems too strange for me. I would think like EP that it would like white stuff in your hair or a build up of sticky stuff. I am not blonde so I could not even try this out.

I know Bumble & Bumble makes tinted powders for us brunettes - but I've yet to try it. What about dry shampoos? I've heard they're not worth it though.

They used to do this in hospitals. Nurses would powder the hair of patients who couldn't get out of bed to bathe. Not sure if they still do it, though. Yeah. Anyway...

Wow - I've never heard this! I have dark blonde hair and I try not to wash it every day but I feel like I have to bc it usually looks greasy if I don't. I bought a spray a few years back that was supposed to do the same thing but it dried my hair out so I tossed it. I'm so excited! Thanks for the tip!

Yes, just make sure to rub it in well.

I have dark hair and have used baby powder before. It doesn't make it white, it just absorbs the oil if you rub it in. However, it does leave my hair kind of staticky flat. It shouldn't be used as a substitute for washing your hair.

Translucent loose powder (the kind you use on your face) along the hairline works well too...and there's less of a chance of it looking too white!
