Whether the mountain you’re tackling is made of laundry or earth, the reality for most moms is that it always feels like there's never enough time in the day to do it all. Yoga class, kids’ swimming lessons, date night, coffee with the girls...something eventually has to give. I think you'll agree that when you’re tight on time, the thing that sometimes gives is haircare because it can be tough to squeeze in a shampoo and blow dry. I think you would also agree that having great post-baby hair is also a challenge. Between postpartum hair loss and the elusiveness of showers, the plight of the ponytail is real...but it doesn’t have to be!
Fashion bloggers have their perks, Pantene sent me a variety of their products to test out on my dry, colour-treated hair.
Whether you’ve got long flowing tresses or a close-cropped ‘do, the simple fact is that beautiful hair is healthy hair, which is why I'm obsessed with moisturing products for my hair. Healthy hair starts in the shower. Here are my easy shampoo, conditioning, and styling tips (and a few products) that even the busiest mom can start using today:
Pantene also has a Style Series Dry Shampoo. Spritzing a bit of it before bed will help you avoid oily roots in the morning. Plus, dry shampoo helps add texture, allowing you to extend your style and go to new heights! I use dry shampoo after workouts and before bed — or after a day spent in the woods, on the beach or hitting the slopes. It helps rejuvenate my hair and provides a much needed little lift. Even helmet hair can be saved with a well aimed spray. My favorite thing about Pantene Dry Shampoo is there is no white residue thanks to tapioca in the formula.
When you have styling products that actually work, they can do all the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on having fun. For great style on-the-go, I like to braid or twist my damp hair to keep it out of my face while I’m active and then let it loose when it’s dry for a night out. The best part? I'm avoiding heat-styling tools that further damage my hair!
Styling Tip: Summer hair should be soft and flowy. Pantene Pro-V Style Series Airspray is super light for hold that moves. It keeps your hair in place but doesn't feel stiff. Also, it's alcohol free so it won't dry your hair out this summer and actually smells good. If you do have fly-away pieces, spritz a little hairspray on a toothbrush or your hand and smooth into place. Don’t let the wind or chasing the kids around wreck your style! Voila!
