Have you ever ran to the bus stop with the kids, with a hat on your head so people didn’t see that you ran out of time for that shower this am? …. uh…. me either….
Another confession….I don’t shave during the winter. Something I regretted terribly just before Christmas when I put a broken wine bottle into my leg and had to call 9-1-1. The paramedics cut my pant leg off, and I embarrassingly started to say how I didn’t have time to shave….and then they had me laughing. They both said at the same time “Don’t worried. We are both married, and it’s winter. We get it.” hahahaha So now that the weather is heating up…. it’s time to pull out the dry shampoo and hair removal solutions:
Let’s start with your locks. A good hair day can make all the difference but spending time shampooing, conditioning and blow drying every morning can leave you frantic and frazzled. My new secret weapon for fabulous hair is Batiste Dry Shampoo. If you haven’t heard of dry shampoo, I suggest you run, not walk, to pick up a can of Batiste. It works to instantly revive oily hair, leaving it looking and smelling clean and fresh. No wet washing required and most importantly no blow drying. If I have a few extra minutes to spare, I sometimes re-style my hair but it’s not necessary. Batiste comes in a variety of fragrances – New Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry is perfect for summer with top notes of pear, melon, kiwi and wildberry!
If you’ve never used dry shampoo before, don’t worry. It’s easy to use. Simply shake can well. Hold 30 cm away from your hair, section & spray into roots. Massage thoroughly with fingertips then brush and style as desired.
Then there’s that hair that’s got to go. I’m talking about the stubble on your legs that leaves you cringing when you reach for that pair of shorts or even worse the bikini you’ve been hiding in the back of your closet all winter. I’m trading my razor this summer for the new Nair Nourish Crème for Legs & Body. A hair remover cream with Grape Seed Oil plus Antioxidant Rich Resveratrol, it removes hair in as little as three minutes (yes, three minutes) while moisturizing to restore skin’s youthful glow leaving you with smooth skin for days longer than shaving*. Did you read that? Days!
Tip: Stock up! Keep a tube of Nair in your bathroom at home, in the bathroom at the cottage/cabin/summer home and a third one in your gym bag. The minute you spot the stubble, you’ll have it on hand. All it takes is three minutes and a quick shower or damp cloth to rinse!
Am I your hair hero or what? This summer it’s all about getting your beauty rest, looking fabulous, feeling healthy and rocking those short shorts.
P.S. Between the summer heat and a jam-packed schedule, it’s easy to let healthy eating slip by the wayside. To ensure your body gets the nutrients it needs, try adding a multivitamin to your daily health and beauty routine. A complete multivitamin such as theVitafusion Women’s Complete Multivitamin is a great option. It’s specially formulated to meet our needs and comes in an easy-to-take, delicious gummy. It includes Biotin and helps maintain hair, skin and nail health – ensuring you glow from the inside out this summer!
