Baby powder (or cornstarch) gets rid of itchy post-haircut trimmings

Stacie’s tip for those summer buzz cut blues:

I searched your site and saw that the tip for using powder to remove beach sand or sandbox sand from skin was posted a couple of years ago. But I didn’t find any reference to using powder to help remove the bits of hair after a haircut. My three sons get their hair cut rather short in the summertime and they really appreciate getting those itchy hair trimmings off their necks as soon as possible. A little cornstarch does the trick, working on hair clippings almost as well as on sticking sand. I don’t buy baby powder, I just put cornstarch in a shaker jar – the kind used for Parmesan cheese at pizza parlors.
