3 Minutes trick for greasy hair

Today, I want to share with you a little trick. But first I want you to remember, this is not every day/week trick, this is allowed only in emergency cases, when you are really running out of time. We all know how important it is to wash your hair regularly, but few times per year there are situations that can make your hair greasy (stress, weather, sport activities,..), and you really don't have time to wash them properly, but still want look good.

I tested Balea's Trocken shampoo (small verison), and it worked well, but nothing special. It did add some volume also the greasy-shiny look disappeared, but my scalp was itchy. I didn't like the ingredients, they just irritated my scalp.

So, here is life (and time) saver trick. Most of us who use makeup everyday have powder for fixing your makeup at home. Just take your powder brush and powder your greasy area with that powder. You will notice instant matt effect. After application just brush your hair a little bit, to deploy all the powder and you're good to go.

It’s very important that the powder you are using contains "talc". This is key ingredient, because it absorbs oil. Currently I'm using Ben Nye's Luxury powder in shade "cameo", and it works great, but Alverde's Kompaktpuder works even better for this trick.

I don' know if this also works for black hair, but for my blonde hair, it works wonders. Don't forget to clean your brush after use, and of course to wash your hair as soon as possible. This will be affective for a few hours, maybe half a day.

That’s it, I hope I saved one of your last minute panic situation and have a great day!


  1. Meni je bil do zdaj še najboljši en od Schwarzkopfa, v taki belo-modri embalaži. V Londonu sem kupila enega od Batiste, z nekim cvetličnim vonjem, pa mi ni niti malo pomagal pri mastnih laseh, pa še vonj je bil tumač. :)

    Jaz še vedno nisem preizkusila dry shampooja :o! Ne vem, vedno si (če se le da) lase rajši operem. Ampak bom mogla tud ta trikec sprobat :)! Hvala za idejo + super opis :).


  3. @Nina Filipič ja teli od Batiste so res znani, sem pa do zdaj prebrala že tolko različnih mnenj da sploh nevem kaj naj si mislim, razn tega da imajo simpatično ambalažo. :) No tudi meni ni všeč če stvar preveč diši.
    @Gita Bončina čist nič ne zamujaš trust me :D Z veseljem!
