Hi All, thanks heaps for such quick and informative replies. Well, perhaps I'd been a little too "dramatic". Yes, I do have greasy hair (or scalp) problem but it's not perhaps as bad as how I might have portrayed it
Please don't avoid me if we happen to be at the same camp ground
It's a problem / characteristic but definitely manageable.
Looks like I will combine the approaches i.e.:
- much shorter hair during long trips
- will use those dry shampoo / powder (I'll try those early, well before the trip so I know how it impacts me)
- and definitely I won't be using hair gel (I only use it very sparingly anyway, but it helps with the hair as I work in a field requiring a reasonable presentation).
