p>My genius, genius hair stylist always gives the best advice, and one of his all-time best words of wisdom is don’t wash your hair too often. I feel like he was telling me to skip a day between shampoos long before everyone who ever wielded a hairbrush started saying so in Allure. I do love the way my hair looks on it’s day off – tousled and sexy, but not so bombshell that I have to save it for my days off.
I did some detective work and found some stuff I love to keep tresses in tip-top shape between shampooings. If it’s just a little grease that’s bugging you, Cake Beauty’s Satin Sugar Hair and Body Refreshing Powder is the way to go – it’s brand new from them and super light, plus the scent (extra sweet with a hint of lemon) is sugary without being too overpowering. Find it at cakebeauty.com For hair that’s a little stinky – whether from sweat, city smog, or good ol’ dirt – or just needs a little refreshing, you can’t beat Clean Fresh Hair Fragrance. It’s got the same great, slightly soap-y scent as the eau de parfum, and it leaves your locks soft and gently scented. Find it at sephora.com. Lastly, for when it’s a desperate situation (think five minutes before a client meeting and it looks like the Exxon Valdez ran aground in your part), turn to Blue Q Dirty Girl Body Powder. Though it’s technically a talcum for your bod, a little bit rubbed into your roots soaks up grease like you wouldn’t believe. Find it at beautyofasite.com.
