Like any new mom pressed for time I appreciate anything that makes my life a little easier. What I appreciate even more? Products that actually DO what they say they can do! Dear marketing professionals: if you say that something is going to double the length of my lashes, call me crazy but yes I actually do expect my lashes to double in size.
So I saw the commercial for TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo last week and for someone with overzealous oil glands it immediately got my attention. Secret? I HATE washing my hair. Washing it makes my showers and getting ready twice as long and when you have a baby, this isn't a good thing. Shampoo, conditioner, blow-dry and since I HATE my hair pin-straight I usually run it through a curling iron for a little volume :) This is why I love the next day soooo much, no need to do all that. Sometimes OK most times I try and get a third day in there but sometimes it looks a little too oily and I just can't get away with it. WELL, this stuff somehow sucks up the oil and you can go for another day or two without washing your hair. (By the way just so we're clear, I do find the time to shower daily) YES!! OK so it's not anything a blush brush and good ol' baby powder can't fix but who needs to spend 5 extra seconds juggling the two when you can have a nice shiny aerosol bottle to fight against the evil oil glands?? OH what a walking contradiction I am. I preach about over abundance and excess and here I am touting yet another product to add to the top of your dresser or bathroom counter - yep the one that doesn't look anything like those magazine-esque clutter free homes with the all too perfect vignettes (antique hand mirror, glass carafe, granny's monogrammed hanky...) you see on blogs/pinterest. Who lives that way??
Anyway back to the overzealous oil glands... so yes, go, run to your nearest drug store or wherever you buy your necessities and give it a go!
PS. If you have black hair like me, take it easy with this stuff. Although it takes away the I have the flu and been in bed all day oily look, it can however add a few years (it turns your hair greyish white if you add too much) - so don't go to town! Oh and I'm taking a little break so I won't be posting here next week but I'll still be over at Nice Package! Happy early Thanksgiving!
