Another use for baby powder

Okay all you moms out there, I know that I am not the only one who finds it difficult to shower everyday and gets the greasy hair blues. Well I found a trick that I thought I'd share.....and it's not wearing a hat!

Step 1 - get a small amount of baby powder in between fingertips (you may have to experiment to get the right amount for your hair, if you get too much your hair may stay white)

Step 2 - With fingertips rub the baby powder at roots of hair. This can be done all over roots or in specific places where grease has built up.

Step 3- Blow dry hair (yes you blow dry your dry hair) and run a circle brush under top sections like you are styling it. You can tease the hair too if you like to do that.

Step 4 - admire the added volume and less grease

In the summer I actually do this to my hair everyday, even if I had showered, just to help my hair have more volume and look better by the end of the day.

Let me know if any of you try this and if it works for you :)

LOVED the tip...thank u. I'm always looking for ways to add volume to my this dry climate it really gets too "straight" for my taste. I'll try it this week and see how it goes...u could do a video of it!!! Have u thought about it??
Aline, loved your last post, I was actually thinking along the same lines you mentioned in your post and I will talk about why on my breastfeeding section this week...

I actually saw this post a few days ago and when I decided to give it a try I couldn't find to make sure I was doing it right...but I tried anyways one day just to see (and I didn't really have time to wash my hair that day so I thought it was the perfect time!) did help a lot, not so sure about the volume but I had straightened the day before so it probably didn't help. But it's definitely an option for those days we're totally out of time! THanks!

I don't like a lot of volume on my hair because I already have plenty. But I'm so trying this because sometimes you just need to leave the house in a rush and don't have time to wash your hair in the shower. And I absolutely hate it when my hair looks greasy! So thanks for the tip Liesl. =)
