Listen guys, I can’t keep this to myself any longer.
There’s really not a nice way to tell someone they need this, but I hope that the fact that I’m confessing that I use it helps you understand that I can relate. I confess this out of love, and in everyone’s best interest. Because of this product, none of us mommies should be running around with greasy hair. Trust me, I have been there. I have, in a rush, looked in the mirror and known that the right thing to do is shower immediately. Then I would calculate how long showering and blowdrying would take. Sometimes I would add in the time it would take to clean up whatever Blake destroyed while he knew I was too occupied to watch him. So I would try to get my hair into a “cute” ponytail and hope that nobody could tell I didn’t wash it today. Or worse, in order to fulfill the stay-at-home-mom cliche, grab a baseball cap to go with my awesome yoga pants. I really do understand. I’m not judging you. Our demanding jobs require sacrifices; sometimes it’s a shower.
And here’s the thing about the ponytail. We can tell. Although we are still not judging, we can look at a woman and know that she had a rough morning, even if the ponytail is cute.
Don’t misunderstand, you can read here that I am a shower advocate. But when you can’t, you really shouldn’t hang a greasy sign on your head announcing that you missed one.
So, please, go out and buy yourself some of this:
It’s dry shampoo. You apply the powder all over your roots and run it through your hair with fingers or a brush. The powder absorbs the oil in your hair and voila! Good as new. Well, not quite as good as new, but good in a pinch. It’s about $19, but has lasted me 8 months so far.
Now, if you ever notice that I smell extra citrus-y, you’ve caught me. 🙂
