Showgirl Beauty Tip: Powdering your Hair

Dry shampoo.  It’s a beautiful thing.  But what if you’re in a pinch and you don’t have any? 

Miscalculations in a hair-washing schedule can happen to anyone.  There are a couple of very reasonable alternatives to dry shampoo lying around in any dressing room, and they’re probably in your bathroom at home as well.

To remove grease from your hair, pour some baby powder into the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, and then run your fingers through your hair.  

The baby powder will soak up the grease.  If you can see white residue in your hair afterward, simply brush your hair and it will disappear.

Don’t have any baby powder?  Foot powder works just as well.  This summer I watched one of my friends rub foot powder into another girl’s hair before the shows and it worked like magic.  Her hair looked clean again.

This tip is obviously not an alternative to washing your hair and practicing good hygiene, but it sure works beautifully for the occasional “I mistakenly thought I could make that blowout last one more day” moment.

Happy powdering!


  1. Good tip! I don't usually have baby powder on hand, but I've used cornstarch in a pinch!

  2. I've also used cornstarch as dry shampoo, it's great to take camping also!

  3. I've heard that baby powder can be substituted for dry shampoo, though I have never tried either of them! I really should give it a go though because I'm trying to train my hair to go longer between washes!
