If you maintain that you’ve NEVER let yourself go a couple of days without shampooing, then at least admit you’ve had oily hair as a result of too much anti-frizz serum. Thick and wavy-haired ladies, I think you know all too well what I’m talking about.
Because I am a naturally frizzy-haired lady myself, the latter situation happens quite often–weekly, if I’m being honest. And I’m all about honesty here.
For example, while I loveeeee me some Frizz-Ease, I take that love too far. I push it to a level that it’s clearly not ready for, and we have to take a long break until I can get my priorities in check. AS USUAL.
But that’s why I have baby powder to run to in the meantime, to help me patch up the mess I made. Baby powder is great because it acts as a sort of dry shampoo that absorbs excess oil or serum without leaving a trace of the powdery, dandruff-like specs that I can only assume you’re beginning to worry about. Unless you dump tablespoons of the stuff onto your scalp all at once, no one will see anything but fresh-out-the-shower hair.
BUT READ MY DIRECTIONS PRIOR TO “TESTING THE WATERS” YOURSELF. We don’t want you going to work/school/your cousin’s Bat Mitzvah with a head of hair that channels a colonial powdered wig.
Getting your hair from oily-point A to normal-point B is simple:
– Dependent upon your level of saturation, you’ll only need 1/2 or 1 teaspoon baby powder to get the job done. If you need a little more than that, no worries. I won’t tell anyone…
– I encourage you to only scrunch 1/2 teaspoon into your hair at a time. Having too little in your hair can be fixed with a little bit more. Having too much in your hair can’t be reversed, and then you’ll have to take that shower you worked so hard to avoid…defeating this entire post’s purpose!
– Massage that amount into your hair near the roots, and then brush your fingers outwards to distribute the rest.
The finished product looks much better:
