Use Baby Powder As Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is great if you have oily hair and you'll be out late or won't have access to a shower. Commercial dry shampoos work great but most of them are just talc or baby powder combined with a fragrance — you can use regular or unscented baby powder for the same effect.

Real Simple magazine's weblog gives this tip as well as how to use the baby powder. Sprinkle a light dusting of powder on your hair and comb it in through to your roots. Keep combing until you can't see the powder anymore.

    As a general health warning, try not to use baby powders containing talc for this. Talcom-powder can cause talcosis and is particurly a problem if inhaled. Something definitely possible if you are putting it in your hair. E.g. http://err.ersjournals.com/content/19/116/165.full or http://www.livestrong.com/article/234299-talc-powder-dangers/.

    Or you can go to target and buy Girlz Only dry shampoo (stupid brand name, good product) for $2 for a big can. And not awkwardly try to rub a loose powder into your hair.
