It's Shampoo Time!

Any true beauty whore knows that washing your hair on a daily basis is actually bad for your hair. It strips the hair of natural oils that are used to conquer breakage and promote hair growth. Basically, if you're washing your hair every single day, you are doing it a huge injustice - stripping the natural sheen and volume of your precious mane!

Okay, so you don't wash your hair every day and the scalp gets super oily, right?

Well, here's a trick that the fashion world has been using for ages! BABY POWDER!!! Baby powder absorbs excess oil and offers a nice aroma for your hair!!!

Okay, so you have brown hair and the baby powder turns it grey (and you are so NOT into the premature aging look...)

Well, here's another trick that I've used for ages! Instead of pouring the powder directly onto your scalp, pour a good amount into your hands, press them together to get rid of any excess, then, starting at the roots, finger your hands through your scalp! Make sure to really get in there... don't be afraid to mock the scrubbing motion!

And if you're still a little skeptical about the baby powder, try Oscar Blondi's Pronto Dry Shampoo - available in a pour top powder or a spray! Not only does it decrease the oil, it also increases the volume!

So before you wash your hair, remember what you're taking away from the roots! Try Dry Shampooing - you'll be impressed, we promise!

Another plus with the baby powder is no stains. Some of the most fabulous powders tinted for dark hair can ruin clothing if you aren't careful. My favorite for day-two hair is Psst!, the spray talc once favored by older women who have their hair set twice a week. But I know plenty of twenty-somethings using it to absorb oil and add volume.
