5 Hair Products Busy Moms Need

I love my hair. It's one of my favorite features. When it's freshly styled, I feel confident and ready to take on the world. BUT, I have a lot of hair, so styling it takes a long time and with my three boys at home right now, working from home, and a major renovation projected happening in my house: it's just not happening. I've learned to rely on my favorite styling tools to help me feel my best each day!

I used to spend forever blow drying and then either curling or flat ironing my hair. Washing my hair was at least an hour ordeal and nobody has that time these days. The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer gets my hair dry and styled within 20 minutes now.

Dry Shampoo

Even with the fantastic styler, I just don't have time to wash my hair every day-and my hairstylist tells me it's not that great to do anyway. This Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo helps keep volume and absorbs any oil keeping my hair looking fresh and clean.

Post Workout Refresh

These days, my workouts get squeezed in right before school starts or during lunch or even during school sometimes. There's not always time to wash again but I need a little more than a dry shampoo. This waterless foam shampoo does the trick! It absorbs dirt and oils and gives a fresh, clean feel to my hair. Bonus, it's quick drying so I'm ready to walk out the door in about 60 seconds!

Root Cover

I started getting gray hair when I was in my early 20s. Now, at 42, man, my roots are almost white. With the pandemic restricting my schedule, it is even harder for me to see my awesome hairstylist regularly. Man, what a blow to my self-esteem to see those roots grow out. I hate looking like a skunk so I enlist the help of L'Oreal Paris Magic Root Cover, and magic it is! With just a few taps of the spray button, it looks like I just came out of the salon. With it's narrow spray nozzle, the distribution is precise and the coverage is flawless. It doesn't leave residue or any crunchy feeling that other products I've tried can leave.

Best Brush Ever

Like I said earlier, I have a lot of hair. It's got some curl and natural wave to it and a whole new texture with so much gray. Add in winter weather, static and wearing sweaters, coats and scarfs, some days I end up with giant knots in the back fo my head. Wet Brushes get the knots out easily with less breakage then standard brushes. If you have little girls with tangly hair-you need these too!
