The Trick: How to Get Rid of Greasy Hair in 10 Seconds When You’re Running Late.

Show me a man who has never woke up at the time he was supposed to be walking out the door and I’ll show you a liar. No time to shower? Fix that greasy bed head hair with this last minute defense.

I picked up this slick trick from my better half, and it should come in handy for all of us.  We’ve all had our cell phone alarm clocks fail to go off because of a dead battery or have found ourselves rushing out the door because of a forgotten early morning dentist appointment.

The next time you wake up already late, don’t show up with hair so greasy you’d make even Don Draper cringe, rub some baby powder in your hair and style as normal. The powder, usually reserved for diapers and your nether region, will soak up the grease and give your hair a cleaner matte finish.

Don’t be fooled though, this should only be used in emergencies. The grease is still there, and by day’s end it may start to overtake the baby powder again. (Not to mention your hair will smell like baby powder.)

And of course, a man should strive to wake up early; at least early enough to wash his hair.
