You overslept and your mop looks like a haystack in a huricane. Or your busy schedule leaves no time for a daily shampoo and style. Or you’re under the weather and still want your hair to look reasonably presentable. Yes, there is a quick fix for dirty hair!
Remember dry shampoo? Spray it on, brush it through, and go one more day without washing-at least in theory. Well, Psssssst Instant Spray Shampoo is back on the market and being discovered by a whole new generation of busy women.
But beauty experts say baby powder, talcum and corn starch work too, especially on greasy hair. Sprinkle a light dusting of powder on your roots, rub gently, style with fingertips and go. Or, for a quick volume boost, lift sections of powdered hair while blow-drying.
If your hair is dry to normal, here’s another quick styling trick that works: dampen the trouble spots with a mist bottle filled with water, then spot-style with a brush and blow-dryer. You’ll be on your way in a flash.
If worse comes to worst, there’s always the old faithful fixes – throw your hair in a bun, braid or ponytail for the day. Or for maximum coverage, wear a hat.
