Super easy mom hair

I recently got my hair cut and colored and I was asked how often I wash my hair.  My answer: every few days (which she was thrilled about).  I didn’t tell her that it’s only because I can’t find the time to do it more often with two little babies at home!

She was surprised to find out the secret to keeping my hair fresh which is…

argo+cornstarch

…corn starch!  Dry shampoo is wonderful but it’s expensive (this one’s my favorite) so when I run out or don’t feel like spending the money on a new bottle, I use corn starch.

Here’s what I do:

With my hair completely dry, I just dip my fingers in and coat them with corn starch and then massage my scalp where it looks greasy.  I let it sit for a few minutes and then brush it out.  Voila!  Fresh hair.  It actually makes it look voluminous and beachy.  Then I usually put it up in a messy ponytail or bun.

Another idea is to put it in at night and wake up with a deliciously messy ‘do.  I might give that a try next time just to see how it looks.

What about you?  Any secret tips to your hot mama hair?

  1. I use baby powder. I usual do this at night so I can sleep some of the power away. It’s tricky with my dark hair. Too much and it looks like grey hair.
