Hey,I haven't been on here in like a year.
So, my hair tends to get greasy pretty fast, so i have to wash it about every other day. I heard that putting baby powder in your hair helps, and can prolong the time inbetween hair washes.
Is their anything in the powder that can harm your hair?
I haev some gold bond foot powder, would this work the same as baby powder.

Personally, what I would use is cornstarch, which has the same effects but without the parfume or other chemicals in the others, plus it's cheaper.  I've used cornstarch, and it works well, but I've learned to always start out with less than I need.

Oh, okay, thanks.
I have some cornstarch, so I will have to try that tomorrow.

You can also try flour, it works best for me.

Careful with the baby powder. Make sure is talk free. Talk is highly carcinogenic.

i wouldnt use any powder for your hair i think its gonna cause build up and just eventually make it mor egreasy and possibly an itchy scalp, are you useing products made for oily hair you need to look into that first shampoo, conditioner etc.. are you clarifying out the build up.
