"i'm a picker,i'm a grinner,i'm a lover and i'm a sinner,i play my music in the sun..."



grease be gone!

don't let this happen to you
{don't be the girl who people think"is her hair wet, or greasy"}
it's a fact that your hair will be happier if you don't wash it every day.
the natural oils your hair gets from your scalp, keep it shiny and healthy.
although for some people, it's not always easy to get away with the luxury of not washing it every day.
you complain that your hair "just gets greasy so fast!"
and i still can't believe when i get a client that doesn't know the solution to the problem.

hair powder
otherwise known as "dry shampoo"
has been around since the beginning of time ladies! how do we all not know this already?
{okay, maybe not the beginning of time...but for a looong time}
and why/how does Brittany not know?

thanks to our ancestors, who used flours and fine grains to sprinkle into their hair,
we have perfected our little beauty secret, and mainstreamed it into some of our top product lines. bumble and bumble's is amazing because it comes tinted to match your color,
and has a nice scent to it.
of course now we have to pay a pretty penny for it.
gone are the days when you could sprinkle a little flour in your hair while baking some cookies
{well you could i guess}
but if your penny is pinched, like most people these days, and sprinkling flour in your hair
makes you feel like a peasant,
then you can do what i do and grab some baby powder!
sprinkle it in the palm of your hands and run it through the roots of your hair.
it not only takes the grease away, but adds a little volume.

now, don't get carried away ladies.
i know this can be exciting and i know what your thinking
"dry shampoo! now i can go weeks without washing!"
but don't let the "shampoo" part fool you...although it will mask the grease, and kill the odor
{i know, sick word, but true}
a good scrub with some good ol' fashioned soap and water is a must!
in fact if you do try to sneak by a week or so, use a good clarifying shampoo to give it a fresh start.

now this is not for everyone.
if you are an avid gym goer, your hair probably gets more than enough "natural oils"
so you will want to wash your hair.
or if your simply disgusted by that fact that we are even discussing this topic,
than you too may just want to stick with washing your hair everyday.

but just remember, if you do choose to try this
{if you already haven't}
as a rule of thumb
if you turn your head really fast, and you get a whiff of scalp mixed with powder...
it's time to wash it.
the real way.

the end
{sheesh that was long}

so on the days that you don't wash, do you just wear a shower cap? because you don't get your hair wet, right?

i put my hair up in a twisted bun. that way the moisture from the shower kind of sets it...then when i take it out, it's kind of wavey ;} or you could use a shower cap...if you have one.
