Hi Blissful and Domestic readers! My name is Jenny and I blog over at Modern Modest Beauty. You can usually find me writing about fashion, beauty, travel and my life in general. When Danielle asked me if I would like to be a fashion/beauty contributor here on her amazing blog, I couldn't say no to such a great opportunity! So, a little about me...I'm a wife and mom of two, a part-time flight attendant and a blogger on the side. In my precious free time I love to travel, shop (on a budget), craft (even if I'm not great at it), watch movies and spend time with my family.
Being a mother is the best thing to ever happen to me, but it definitely came with some lifestyle changes. One of the biggest changes has been the amount of time I have each day to spend getting ready. So today I want to share my favorite time-saving trick...DRY SHAMPOO.
This little bottle will become your new best friend. Note: I have no affiliation with Suave, this is just the cheapest dry shampoo product I have been able to find.
Step One: Apply dry shampoo to the roots of your hair. This should be the only part of your hair that is greasy. If your ends are greasy, that is a whole different problem that I don't have answers for!
Make sure to get the roots toward the back of your head too. I think it works best to spray from about one foot away. If you hold the spray can too close, bad things happen.
That is, unless your goal is to have gray hair. I prefer to dye my pesky gray hairs that are starting to pop up, not add more! Spray from a foot away and don't apply too much.
Wait about 30 seconds to let the dry shampoo soak up the oil in your hair. Then, brush through your hair and tease it just a little bit to give it some volume.
Now you can style it however you would like. I put it up in a side ponytail, because like I said before, with kids I just don't have time to do much else! Dry shampoo is probably my favorite product and if you haven't used it, I hope you will try it out and see how much time it can save you in the morning. It's also healthier for your hair to not wash it every day. Note: you will still want to shower/bathe...if you have long hair like me you can put it up in a shower cap, or just pin it up off of your shoulders!
