Although some of us wash our hair everyday, others every other day and some only once or twice a week; we would all like to hold off on washing for at least an extra day.. Not only would this save time in getting ready but also helps in preserving color or any leave in treatments. The following tips and tricks help to hide and disguise oily, greasy looking hair so that you can go that one extra day without washing.
- Dry Shampoo: This quick fix is virtually effortless and actually works. Although it does not clean your hair, it certainly gives a freshly washed appearance. Applying dry shampoo to your roots will soak up oils and then brushing your hair will create a smoother, softer look with less separation.
- Baby Powder: Known for a few different uses, haircare is not one so commonly know. When used correctly this product is a great hair tool. Baby powder instantly soaks up hair oils. When using, gently sprinkle onto roots, the trick is a little at a time; more can always be added but it can not be taken away without washing. When using on dark hair, be careful to use only a small amount, you do not want to create a dull grey-ish look; sprinkle into your palms first, and then tap onto your roots.
- Headbands: Although head bands draw attention to the area we are trying to conceal; they will cover what we want to hide and show off the rest of your look and themselves. Decorative headbands with embellishments such as feathers, sequins and bows are the most affective; they add an exciting feature that will take any focus off of oily roots.
- Updo’s: Bringing your hair back tends to disguise an oily look; softer updo’s are more affective than a severe pony tail. Updo’s actually work best with slightly dirty hair as they hold better. Soft tousled slightly messy updo’s that require little effort disguise oily greasy looking hair.
These tricks will help to conceal dirty hair on your hair-washing off-days, but just remember these quick fixes should only be used for a day or two.
