Mommy Monday

You guys. It snowed this weekend. It freaking snowed. Its not even December yet! What up with that?!

I guess that’s okay, though. Because now its cold enough so that I can legitimately wear one of the many super cute head wraps my mom made me without looking totally out of season. Now that I’m a mom, these things are a LIFESAVER! Why? Because now my hair will look a lot less ratchet than it normally does.

Before Huff the Babe entered our world in all her adorable glory, my hair was the one part of my body I was actually proud of.

Huff the Hubs LURVED my hair. He would always say (and still does) that he never wants me to cut it. Now, he never sees it because I’m “all about those hats, ’bout those hats”:

Hat=Please don't ask me the last time I washed my hair.

I typically get to shower everyday (spare me the gasps of judgement about hygiene; mom’s know that getting a shower everyday is a luxury long since passed) but I maybe get to wash my hair about 3 times a week. My showers are typically rushed because I have be somewhere/have a long list of things to accomplish in the short time before HtB wakes from her nap/I’m so tired I just don’t want to be in the shower longer than I have to.

Thankfully, two amazing products have found their way into my bathroom cabinet as well as heart. Dry shampoo and 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner.

Dry shampoo is seriously a busy mom/woman’s best friend! I didn’t think I would like it; I equated it to putting baby powder in your hair. But this stuff is #legit.

My bestie for the restie.

After I learned how to do it the right way, dry shampoo and I started a glorious friendship. (Do your homework before you purchase, though. You don’t want to waste ca$h where its not necessary!)


I used to be one of those people that thought, “I’ll never use that.” I didn’t think it was natural. After all, shampoo and conditioner come in two separate bottles. They’re supposed to be separate. Oh, how disillusioned was I. Because now? I. LOVE. 2-in-1.

Ohhhhh yeaaahhh….

It seriously cuts down on my shower time (especially in the winter because, let’s face it, I’m not wasting time shaving my legs) and the fact that it conditions my hair helps with the whole “winter-has-made-my-hair-super-staticky-and-I-want-to-shave-my-head-because-its-so-frustrating” fiasco we all know and despise.


For reals, though. These products have saved me from just throwing in the towel and getting a “mom ‘do”…like the “Kate Gosselin”:
