Hi my name is Heather and I have crazy hair issues. There I said it. It’s out there. Actually if you know me you know this isn’t breaking news at all. I have had crazy hair since I was a toddler.
Now I am all grown up and yes I am still trying to tame these curls. These days I bring out the big gun… oh yeah, the flat iron! I know, I know, you think I shouldn’t be doing that, I should be thankful for my beautiful curls ya-da-ya-da…. Uggghhh the things that people have been telling me for years! Sometimes I wonder if these same people really understand the drama that occurs every morning as I try and make myself presentable for the real world. The thing is straightening curls that like to be curly takes time, lots of time. Back in my couch potato days this really wasn’t a huge deal, but lately this has been a big problem. Now that I am working out daily and sweating more than I even knew was possible I have to battle the question of …. To Shampoo or Not To Shampoo? If I shampoo then I have to take the time to straighten my hair again. As if I have time for that, I barely have time for my workout.
I am not about to let my crazy hair issues keep me from getting fit though. Nope not today, not any day. Hair beware, I am on a mission!
Yesterday I took the kids shopping to one of our favorite stores (can you name the store this aisle belongs to?). We made a beeline to the shampoo aisle and began the big hunt, the hunt for dry shampoo. Oh yeah, that’s right I said dry shampoo. Have you heard of this stuff? I have only recently heard of it. I think it is like a fitness persons magic trick. You know one they must never reveal. Well I am the newbie and I don’t know all the rules, so I am about to reveal the magic of this shampoo in a can. Please don’t go telling on me.
EUREKA! We found a few. I would have held them all but I think I would have needed a few more arms. There were so many choices. Who knew? So how does one choose? Seriously I am calling on all of you who have dry shampoo knowledge. There are cans for $6 and there are cans for $25 with many priced in between. So are they all pretty much the same? Is it just the brand that you are paying for? Pretty sure I am going to be experimenting with several different brands to see if you get what you pay for or if it is just the fancy packaging and the brand that costs so much more. I will keep you all posted on my findings. (pssst…. I would still love to hear your opinions though)
I picked one at random and headed home. Of course that meant I had to try it out immediately. You totally saw that coming didn’t you? It really did take away that post workout feel (I showered but didn’t wash my hair after my workout). As an added bonus it smelled really good and had a nice shine when I finished.
Hip-Hip-Hooray! For the magical shampoo in a can! No longer will I have to stand for 45 min to an hour straightening my hair everyday. No longer will I have to sigh when I have no time for the flat iron and have to take my unruly and crazy hair issues out into public places. Life is good.
