How to Use Baby Powder as Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoos are not a new discovery.They have been around for many years now. Who would have thought of using baby powder to get rid of grease and oil from hair? Well, it can help prevent the hair from becoming too clogged with styling products.

The question is how to use baby powder as a dry shampoo alternative? They are handy items to have in your purse or travel bag, however, when it’s not available, there can be times when you run out and need a replacement in a hurry. When this happens, use baby powder instead!

Having coarse, curly hair means you wash likely on a daily basis. However, this will dry the hair out completely robbing it of its natural oils, and this is not good. Even if your hair is fine, it will easily attract dirt and pollutants. No matter what type hair anyone has, washing it every day is not healthy!

To help keep the hair clean in between washing, some people rely on a particular dry shampoo for black hair or dry shampoo for colored hair.

Besides washing too often, it is not good for the hair. So, when you can’t wash, use this alternative.
