12+ Useful Life Hacks People Taught Us In Social Media

Social media has come a long way from the days when it was only used to share pictures and selfies with your friends and family. While the majority of us still only use social media exclusively for that, others have turned it into a whole new platform, even as a business endeavor.

Some used it as a place to share and sell their handmade arts and crafts, some as a beauty tips channel, some as a place to share their fitness journey, and others use it to share useful life hacks we never knew we needed. Like the people in the posts below:

 

1. Baby powder works as a DIY dry shampoo

If you don’t have dry shampoo at hand, then sprinkling some baby powder on the roots and then blending it on your hair will reduce their greasy appearance. It also works if you apply the baby powder at night before you go to bed, and your hair will absorb it overnight, giving you oil-free har in the morning.

2. There’s a Starbucks secret menu

Starbucks, just like many other food chains like Wendy’s, Subway, or Chipotle, has secret items that don’t appear on the regular menus. Things like a  Cotton Candy Frappuccino, Double Dirty Iced Chai, or an Iced Raspberry Latte. You can find them all here.
