 Beyonce and Jay-Z aren’t the only ones On The Run you know…
Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo:
Whether I’m running late, or because I washed my hair the night before, dry shampoo is my savior. My hair is naturally oily so that means I have to wash my hair everyday. Unfortunately, my hair is also highlighted, therefore I have two different textures going on at the same time. My roots are oily, but the rest is normal/dry. It’s was a real dilemma, but then I gave dry shampoo a shot. It solved all my problems. It’s also great for refreshing, giving extra grip/hold to a hair do, and giving your hair a temporary fuller effect. Dry shampoo is proof you can have your cake, and eat it too.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray:
Right after I apply the dry shampoo, and brush it out, I lightly spray this all over the middle and lower half of my hair to give it a more natural look. Or, I use it it when I’ve styled my hair in waves/curls to give it that beach-y bed-head look. It also provides you a slight hold. Did I mention it also smells great?

Coconut oil:
We’ve all heard that coconut oil is amazing for about 15million things. Your skin, your hair, your health, it’s pretty much the gift that keeps on giving.  I use it for a myriad of things, but for my on the run hair care, I use it just on the ends. I grab about a pea sized about, and work it into my ends. It helps keep them moisturized, and adds shine. It’s the perfect leave-in-treatment.

 

 

Until next time…Love,

My little half-pony

One morning, I was rushing to get to work. As I looked in the mirror I thought to myself, “What am I going to do with my hair?”, I had fallen asleep with a braid, and it wasn’t exactly the #Iwokeuplikethis perfect hair that the beauty gurus on Refinery 29 said it would be. In all fairness, I probably didn’t do it right… Anyway, I was stuck with weird choppy waves. Naturally, picked up my hair in a ponytail, but it wasn’t quite right. Then in the midst of my frustration, I remembered that one time I was on pinterest for hours, and I came across this quick and cute way to use bobby pins.  I opted for simple, yet stylish triangle. I picked up my hair into a half-ponytail and began putting the bobby pins in their triangular place. The end result, was just what I was looking for. I received many compliments that day on my 2 minute hair do, and it’s now a favorite amongst my lazy girl hair repertoire.

I’ll be posting up my favorite on-the-go hair products very soon.

Until next time…
