Reading the comments of Diana's recent haul post, I was quite tickled to find out that many ladies like to use the talcum powder from Snake Brand on their derrieres. I, on the other hand, prefer to use similar talcum powders on the opposite end of my body. ;)
Almost always, I'll take a bath right before leaving the house. However, I'll occasionally find that I'll have to dispense with doing so; be it because I've already taken a bath a few hours ago or there's simply not enough time. So, to keep the roots of my hair fresh, I spread a little talcum powder between my palms and distribute it evenly into the roots of my hair.
The talcum powder works exactly on the roots as it does anywhere else on the body - It removes the traces of sebum and sweat to keep the area fresh, dry and clean! :D
Please bear in mind to apply a small amount of powder to your hands first though; squeezing it directly onto the scalp will leave you looking 20 years older with all the grey streaked everywhere! In such a case, a blowdryer should solve the problem in a snap. :) After applying the powder, you may want to comb through your locks.
This little trick'll also work great if you're somewhere with a colder climate and don't want to keep bathing.
