Okay, we all know dry shampoo is one of the best inventions (in a long time) to be introduced to the beauty world. We are now free to accept last minute invitations and social events without fear of having unwashed hair! Of course it's a fake hair "washing," but nonetheless a social beauty lifesaver! Not to mention the jump start of volume it gives you, pumping our day-at-the-beach hair from flat to sexy in seconds! As it has been increasingly popular, we are now given a choice of powder or aerosol spray. So, what is the difference?

Not Your Mothers Girl Powder 7.25.13

If your hair is more on the thin side you'd benefit most with the powder option because it is applied right to your roots and gives instant volume as it immediately absorbs the oil at the root of the hair. Not Your Mother's: Girl Powder is a perfect option to achieve high volume hair quickly and effectively! The scent is amazing and your greaser hair look will vanish in seconds making you look like you just stepped out of the salon when you really were cleaning the house all day. Try and find any traces of oil after applying won't find any! Oily hair people will want to be all over this one! I have come to find out that it is the best product for my short hair, as it gives me a chance to give my look a more "bed-head" / "wash & go" type of careless look. The effortless posh look as I like to call it :) This is also the better option for hot climates / summer travel as it is smaller and isn't in an air compressed can that can explode if exposed to high heat! 

To use a powder product, it's always best to start with less and build as you need more. You can't take away powder from your hair and you can easily make yourself look dusty and aged if you over do it! I recommend you take a few shakes into the palm of your hands and rub your hands together then rub into the roots. If I'm lazy about it I will shake the powder direct into my roots and massage in...make sure you have used the product a few times before attempting a pro move like that though.

What seems to be trendy now-a-days is quick beauty. People are trying to make beauty faster and easier...just like everything else with this ever evolving world. This is changing more and more as woman are working full time careers and adding families on top of it! Not only are woman suppose to succeed in their careers but also in their roles as mothers, which is basically working two full time jobs. I personally do not have kids, but I know a career alone wipes me out and I find excuses to avoid the gym on a regular basis...I can't image another full time job added to that! Makeup for me is something I love to take my time on and experiment with it, so I use 95% of my "getting ready in the morning" routine on figuring out what to wear and applying makeup.

That being said, apart from hair care in the shower, I rarely do much of anything to my hair during the work week...but there are times where my hair needs to at least be calmed down from the frizzy mess that sleeping on wet hair created! I have two of the best hair solutions for a 60 second morning routine. Beauty in a can is not as lame as it sounds, there are actually many products going into cans to give you beauty in one spray! Unconventional beauty in a can is becoming more common as more and more brands strive to find ways to make beauty products fast fixes that are also easy to travel with. Foundation, hair color, tanning...the most well-know beautifying fixes from a can are typically with hair products. My two faves keep my hair fresh and revived in a rush!

 03272013 Biotera Dry Shampoo PRMy 60-second hair pick-me-up product is Biotera: Invisible Dry Shampoo instantly refreshes and revitalizes hair between regular washes with no residue. This product is my hero! If my hair looks a little limp or flat I will add this in for volume. It also is the best invention to use in between regular shampoo washes, because as I have said before, it's not ideal to wash your hair everyday unless you have a crazy oily scalp/hair follicle. I try to keep my hair unwashed for 2-3 days since it's more on the dry end and won't get majorly oily or dirty feeling until the 3rd day. This is especially wise to do if you color your hair or use heating tools often. It flawlessly eliminates excess oil to boost volume and leave hair feeling clean and refreshed. Use in place of regular shampoo to keep color vibrant longer. The scent is SO amazing people will think your hair is freshly washed! HA! Oh the beauty secrets we keep :)

03272013 Hairspray Addict Color Bright

My 60-second hair tamer is the Hairspray Addict: Color Bright Hairspray with a level 5 max hold....and it does give a max hold! I love using this in the morning when I need to tame my hair. My hair is wavy so it helps to mold my waves better and keeps frizz at bay! It incredibly enhances my hair color too, which is an add bonus! My hair is shiny and the color is more radiant, glowing and overall more healthy looking! This is also a great product to keep hair in total place! I love using this when I want to spend more time on my hair for an event or special occasion, it holds my style if I have lots of curls or a sleek flat, slicked look. Packed with serious benefits to perfect hair, it also holds frizz away for up to 72 hours while radianting the amazing scent of Sparkling Citrus! This hairspray can do it all!
