What is it with California stylists/barbers? Why do they hate baby/talc powder? Until I moved to California, the barber almost always applied a dab of baby powder to the back of my neck to prevent post-haircut itchiness. But, not in California. Whenever I ask for it, the stylist looks at me like I’m crazy.
Perhaps, I am.
Any other folks familiar with the practice of applying a bit of baby or talcum powder to the back of the neck to prevent the annoying itchiness that can accompany a haircut?
I grew up in the South so maybe it’s a regional thing (like when I traveled to West Virginia to help open a new Dairy Queen and discovered that a “chili dog with everything” better come topped with cole slaw or a customer will throw the dog back at you)?
