    Oscar Blandi dry shampoo (the actual powder, not the spray version) works well AND smells fantastic. Sephora carries it. There's even a small travel size you can buy to try it out.

    If you're in a pinch and/or on a budget, baking soda works well for freshening up the roots, but it doesn't add any scent.

    I've had better luck with both of these than I have with plain old cornstarch baby powder, but that can also be a good stand-in.

    Whatever you do, don't put baby powder in your hair then attempt to comb it out. Talk about static electricity!! I could HEAR my hair crackling!

    ive made a recipe that i use as a growth booster. it stimulates and clenses as well. i use argan oil, as a base, but if you dont use it any light oil will do, then i add a few drops of rosemary and peppermints oil, and my last batch i added evening primrose oil as well. i rubb this in my scalp every night before i go to bed. it leaves a nice tingling sensation and really feels fresh and clean after.

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
    :hello1:

    In regards to growth. Is there a significant increase in growth? And do you recommend tea tree oil in place of the peppermint . I'm looking for a mixture of oils that will help with the health of my scalp and promote growth. I'm currently using a mixtures of almond and jojoba oil

    tea tree is good as well, ive used it before. i think it really does help with my growth, i really notice that it shoots out. i use it at night cause hair grows slower at night. i really recemmend using rosemary oil, its a great stimulater, but only use a few drops cause its really strong.
