I have no doubt it grosses out some people when I tell them I only wash my hair a couple of times a week. (Hey, if it works for the French…) Now, let me reassure you: I shower daily! However, the whole shampooing-conditioning-blowdrying thing is reserved for dirty days when my hair needs a rinse lest it run the risk of being declared a haz-mat site. Pourquoi do I do this? (Other than laziness, obvs.) Heat-styling and coloring take a massive toll on hair, so damaged strands like mine are further strained by the daily wash/dry routine. In between washes, I rely heavily on hair powders, which sop up oil, refresh a blowout, and give hair a cool Brigitte Bardot textured quality. (In a pinch, baby powder works, too, although this trick is better for the fair-haired.)
Two amazing new hair powder lines? Finley Hair Powder and The All Nighter. Both come in a myriad of colors to suit all hair shades (red! black! platinum!) and–bonus–both smell freaking fantastic. Finley’s powders have a flowery honeysuckle scent, whereas The All Nighter’s powders smell like clementines. Hair powder is an excellent addition to any lazy beauty gal’s arsenal, so I very enthusiastically recommend you check them out!
