My Delicious Secret

I'm not into dry shampoo. Yes, I know, I may be the only blogger on the planet who's not crazy in love with the stuff. I tried it. I hated it. Maybe it was the kind, or maybe I just don't like the stuff in general. I don't know. It just made my hair feel like when you use hairspray and by the end of the day its sort of gross, which is basically the complete opposite of what I wanted it to do. But I do like keeping my hair healthy, and healthy means not washing it every single day. So I started researching other things to use for a similar effect... or rather what the effect was supposed to be... and found out about baby powder. I tried it. And *drumroll please* I loved it.
And it's just so easy. When I read about it I thought "Maybe this'll work... but it's gonna be darn messy." But I tried it, and it's so fricken easy.
I just put some powder in my hand, and run it through my hair. At first it will look like you instantly gained about 40 years, but trust me. I'm not crazy. Either run your fingers through your hair till it's all blended in, or {Probably the better option} use a brush to brush it all through. It's seriously that simple. It soaks up the oil and now you'll smell like a delicious baby. Bam. Life is now complete.


  1. Huh, maybe I'll try that. I have to wash my hair every day because it gets so oily, but I wish I didn't. But baby powder isn't bad for it?

    1. I know what you mean! My hair is really fine and gets oily quickly, so I was washing it everyday. But in reality thats really bad for your hair as it dries out your scalp, then it makes your scalp work over time trying to produce more oil... so you then wash it the next day and start the process all over again. You can actually "train" your hair to need less washing. The first few days are really rough, but afterwards it's so worth it! All that baby powder {or dry shampoo} is doing is soaking up the extra oil, without drying it out. From all I can tell baby powder is actually a very good substitute to dry shampoo, especially seeing as dry shampoos have preservatives, aerosol propellants, and other things that aren't top notch. Baby powder just has talc and fragrance. Now that I've written a novel... I hope it helps!
