Quick Fix Solution: How To Hide Dirty Hair

It's a lazy Saturday morning, and you've earned the luxury of sleeping in. You awaken from a fabulous dream about your sexy neighbor, turn around to look at the clock, and suddenly realize it's Friday morning, not Saturday, and your alarm didn't go off. You're late for work. In order to salvage what's left of the morning, you'll have to run in and out of the shower without washing your hair. But that will leave you with dirty locks all day, right? What's a poor, confused, tardy girl to do? There are a few home remedies you can try. Shaking some talcum powder on your scalp will help absorb excess oil, but for brunettes, the white residue can leave you looking worse off than before.

We suggest Shampowder by Buttercream Cosmetics ($15.99) as a quick fix for unwashed locks.  

Shampowder comes as a large makeup brush with the powder in the base. You apply the powder to your scalp, and it will absorb the dirt and oil. But unlike baby powder, these come in two shades for different hair colors – one for dark and red hair, and one for light. So next time you freak out about going to work with a nasty mane, opt for Shampowder before throwing on that knit beret you know you can't really pull off.
