The Time Saver

Many, many moons ago, my mother taught me about the wonderful world of baby powder. Well, what baby powder can do for greasy hair that is. Put a little in your hands, rub them together, glide your fingers through your hair and voila, you’re grease free another day!

Here’s the problem with baby powder though: 1. If you use too much, you get a white powdery residue in your hair and then your secret is out. 2. Baby powder won’t last you the whole day. It’s a quick fix, sure, but you’ll need a touch up before you go out for the night.

I used baby powder for years. It saved my life when I decided to cut bangs (I never knew how quickly hair got greasy until I had bangs). And I’ll tell you, it’s a great alternative to what I’m about to present you with. You can’t beat $1 for a bottle of baby powder in the Target sample section. That’s a fact.

However, for those of you willing to spend a few extra bucks, I introduce you to Frederic Fekkai Dry Shampoo.

I’ve tried out several different brands — sprays, powders, the works — and Fekkai is definitely the miracle worker. It has an easy applicator tip that is literally overdose proof. You don’t need very much to take care of the grease and Fekkai will last you all day (or all night). Apply the powder directly to your hair-line and then rub it in to make the grease disappear before your eyes. If you’re afraid of what this powerful product can do, pour a little in your hand first and apply it that way.

*Using too much will of course leave you looking a little lighter at the roots, so try it out, see what amount works for you. Overall, this product is a great day #2 (or #3) alternative to washing.
