A BEAUTY lover has taken the internet by storm after revealing the secret product she uses to conceal greasy hair – and it’s not dry shampoo.
In a short clip on TikTok, Eden, whose handle is @edenharvzofficial, shared the life-changing hack, which was liked by almost 670,000 people on social media.

”The girls that get it – get it, and the girls that don’t – don’t,” said the social media star, whose videos have amassed her a notable following of more than 2.9 million people on TikTok.
At the start of the viral video, Eden can be seen holding a bottle of baby powder – this, according to her, is the only product you need for this beauty hack.
The trick, she then went on to demonstrate, is simply pouring a small amount of the powder onto your palm and running your fingers through the hair afterwards.
”I do put it in all crevices aswell ladies don’t worry [sic],” she later added in the comments.
Unlike dry shampoo, which sometimes has harmful chemicals – and is also more costly – baby powder won’t break the bank and is just as effective.
With one of the key ingredients being talc, baby powder is the ultimate alternative for overpriced dry shampoo.
The experts at HairGuider explained that talc is used to absorb the excess oil and grease on your hair – which is exactly what we want to achieve.
For those who are scared of the white residue baby powder can leave, the article suggested various options.
”Brunettes, for example, can add some cocoa butter, while redheads can do with some cinnamon on their hair.”
However, despite the hack, some viewers were quite sceptical, pointing out to common myth that baby powder and talc are known to be linked with cancer.
A professional said: ”I use to use it to daily and loved it however I am a hair dresser as well and have found it causes baldness and hair loss, So I switched 2 dry shampoo [sic].”
Some took it to comments to share their recommendations, with one writing: ”baby powder = setting powder.”
Another person claimed corn starch performs just as well.
But it wasn’t all negative, as some supportive users defended Eden, like this person: ”I couldn’t live without this .. swear I’d be washing my hair every day.”
”It makes your hair look less greasy and covers dead ends,” added a second.
Another claimed: ”I did this before dry shampoo was the thing.”
For similar stories, this is how you should REALLY use dry shampoo… and there is a right amount to spray, according to an expert.
Plus, this TikTok hack shows how you can remove all the hair from your brush using a toothpick.
Meanwhile, one woman brilliantly uses a slice of toast to show why you REALLY need to use heat protectant on your hair.
