This mom hair gets a good washing once a week. And I cannot tell you how many mouths drop when I say that! But here’s a [not so secret] secret that even your hair stylist will agree with- washing your hair every day is not as healthy as you’d think for those locks of yours.
Que relief!! That’s right friend. You just got a free pass to forego the wash, dry, style, repeat EVERY.DAY.

I’m not going to lie, I’ve bounced around to so many different products. There are some great ones out there. Some I’ve paid dearly for from salons and cosmetic super stores, and some I’ve scrimped on as I’m making my mad dash through the grocery store with all three kids [check out my top picks below]. Lucky for you, I have my own concoction to share with ya! Now, keep in mind friend, this is a training process!! Literally you are about to train your hair. So be patient, tough through it, and I promise you will be happy you did!

Let’s start with the obvious, WASH + DRAY. Now, let’s think about things first. If you’re only doing this mundane ritual once a week now, we just cut vital minutes out of your morning routine, so take a tad bit longer here and actually style your hair for best results. I use a large round brush + the cool setting on my drier to set things in place.
This next step may shock you a bit. DRY SHAMPOO. That’s right! I know, I know. But even though your hair is the cleanest it will be all weak, the dry shampoo will create volume and is our front line defender against oils. The key to this step is to part, lift, and spritz the roots.
Now I know… you may not be the pageant queen and teasing may be a little foreign to you. Just trust me on this one. Grab a comb and just tease the roots.
Spritz with your favorite hair spray and you’re good to go. [see my pick below]
Day two through six – R E P E A T steps 2-4. If you’re feeling a little flat through out the week, you may want to snag a plumping powder to!
There ya go sister! Your morning just got a whole lot easier + you may just be able to snag a few extra minutes of sleep!
……. who am I kidding… extra Z’s?! Nah… you, mama, you get to start an extra load of laundry in the mornings now!
