I’ve always been told that it is good to give your hair a break and not wash it everyday. But as a blonde, sometimes I find it hard to do. Why? Because I feel my hair looks like a big ball o’ grease the next day! I get so jealous of my brunette coworkers who can go three or four days between washes (but they also have long hair where they can do braids, pony tails, etc.).
bumble and bumble made a hair powder back in the day that I loved. They discontinued it, I cried, and stocked up on a few bottles. When those ran out, I cried again. bumble and bumble tried to replace it with a spray powder which did NOT work as well AT ALL. But they came out with yet another replacement that is freakin’ fantastic. The Prêt-à-Powder!
At first, I didn’t know if I wanted to spend $26 on hair powder. I know the brand is great. But seriously? It’s powder. I’m so glad I did though because it works great for my blonde hair. And I’ve had my bottle for almost a year and it’s only 1/2 gone! How the top is designed, it doesn’t put a ton of product out at once, so you end up not wasting it. See (please don’t get grossed out by my grease!)…
Now, I’m a visual person, so I wanted to show you how well this product works. These are before and after pictures of using the Prêt-à-Powder. This was after not washing my hair for one day.
As you can see, it takes away the grease and oil. What it also does a great job of is giving the hair some volume. I shake it all over, but focus on my part and the hair around my face.
While I have done the Johnson & Johnson baby powder trick in the past, this powder 1. doesn’t make you smell like a baby’s bottom or 2. leave a white cast in your hair. Although it’s pricier, it does a much better job. And the scent is wonderful and not overpowering. After you put it on, you don’t even notice it.
You’ve got to try this powder!
