Coddle Your 'Do For Just One More Day

Coddle Your 'Do For Just One More Day

Who do you think you're kidding when asked about the ol' powder in the hair trick? We are all guilty of the one, two, three — and yeah, I'll even say it — four-day stretch of not washing our hair after we get a wicked blowout. And you know the only thing stopping you from washing your perfect, frizz free hair is that it's gettin' pretty gross and greasy looking.

These genius powders are the answer! For all the dirty birdies out there, you can now just sprinkle some absorbent powder in your dewy 'do to prolong washing. For the rest of you who do like to keep your hair clean but know that it's best to create an up-do with day old hair, these powders are great for you too! Enjoy.

Cake Satin Sugar Hair & Body Refreshing Powder, $18, is a talc-free colored powder ideal for those of us who want to refresh our hair without having to wash it. This is the must-have product to keep in your bathroom.

Simply sprinkle some powder into your hands and run them through your hair between washings. You can also use it on your body by sprinkling a little bit in the areas that need a quick freshening up! It smells oh so sweet and is available in two hues: one for light hair and one for dark hair.

For two more dry shampoos,

Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo $19, is another fab way to give back some life to your day old 'do. This amazing dry shampoo actually cleans your hair without the mess of water and the fuss of styling!

It contains natural ingredients such as: rice, oat, and tapioca starches to absorb oils and increase the volume of your hair at the roots. The lemony scent also makes your hair smell fresh and clean too - this stuff rocks!

Lastly, you remember my post about the Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder from Red Week right? If not, check it out here. This stuff is awesome too.

i've used Psssst in the past and it can be found at any local drug store for around $5. It's a white powder in an aerosol can so I'd try not to use it if you have dark hair. Bumble and Bumble has colored dry shampoo but they're pretty pricey.

Oooh, I'll have to check these out! And, I hate when I cook something with a strong smell, and I *swear* the smell gets in my hair. This would probably help with that, too!!

I think I'll try the cornstarch trick and save the other $17 for something else! Thanks for the tip, goils!:)

I have super pale blonde hair, so I have always just used cornstarch. Everyone used to think it was weird, but now dry shampoos/hair powders are everywhere. It really keeps greasy roots away and give me awesome texture and volume. If anyone has used any of the products mentioned, please comment. I wonder if they are any different than the cornstarch method.

I am SO guilty of going a leetle too long between washes. :oops: It takes forever to blow my hair out so I prefer to wait a day (or two or three) before washing it. Plus, my hair is SO MUCH HEALTHIER now that I don't wash it and dry it ever day. But my roots get greasy as hell. I'm intrigued by the Cake Beauty powder.

I've done this with loose face powder and it even helped. :makeup: I'm sure this stuff would be great!

For lighter hair, you can always opt for baby powder or cornstarch for a buck!
