Having oily hair may be a part of life, but knowing how to deal with it doesn't have to be one of its great mysteries. These three products, and ways to use them, will kick a greasy 'do to the curb.
Originally, it was created in order to cut down on the amount of time it took to wash models' hair before fashion shows. Now you too can be runway ready with Ojon's Rub-Out Dry Cleanser's simple formula. Apply to hair from root to tip, like you would a gel. Then rub in at the scalp so it absorbs where hair is oiliest. Brush through to disperse any clumps and voilà, you're ready for the catwalk.
If spending the money for this fashion-show favorite isn't in your budget right now, NYC stylist James Corbett of the James Corbett Studio recommends baby powder as an alternative. "Opt for a cornstarch baby powder," Corbett suggests, as opposed to talc, since cornstarch is a bigger powder. It will actually give your hair a bit of lift as it absorbs. "You can make your own by mixing it with your favorite body shimmer and give yourself a sparkle as you absorb," he says.
And while the drugstore favorite works well, it's important to remember it won't get you through for days on end. It's a great quick fix but eventually, you will have to wash your hair.
Ojon Rub-Out Dry Cleanser To Go, $10 for 2 oz.
