Hair Essentials

These are 2 hair essentials that I love using on my 2nd or 3rd day hair.

I can’t wash my hair every day.   I just can’t.

If I do, my ends get dried out and my roots get greasy fast (It would be great if those 2 flip flopped).  By not washing every day, it saves my hair some damage, and I think it’s helped with the grease problem too.

I have a few tools, to help me get through 2nd day hair, that I always have on standby > > > Dove dry shampoo and spin pins.

Dry Shampoo & Spin Pins

Let’s start with the dry shampoo:

I’m not talking about any dry shampoo (because there are about a billion posts out there on it), but more specifically Dove’s dry shampoo.  I’ve been using dry shampoo for about 8 years now.  I started with Pssssst! and it changed my world.  I actually love the Psssst! brand that you can find at the drugstore.   It comes in 2nd place for me.  But Dove is the best!  The spray is strong and really absorbs the oils, while giving great texture to my hair.  I will even use it on clean hair when I want to add some body.  And I love that the smell is not overpowering.

The strong scent of most dry shampoos is my main problem with them.  Especially that new paraben free Herbal Essences dry shampoo.  Gag!

The Dove has a fresh smell and the product works great.  It’s also the most budget friendly of all the dry shampoos.  So that’s an added bonus :)

Now for spin pins:

Spin pins are fantastic.  1 spin pin does the work of about 15 bobby pins.  You just throw your hair up and twist it into a bun and then you screw the pin in.  I will use 2 and cross them like a plus sign +

This is great for when it’s time for the messy bun or a ballerina bun.  Just throw a bun up on your head and spin those babies in.  I can put them in first thing in the morning and I won’t have to redo my hair all day.

I also love to use them to get my hair out of the way when I’m cooking or lounging on the couch.  They don’t do any damage to your hair (which most hair ties and bobby pins can do) and they hold everything in place.

Dry Shampoo and Spin Pins

You can find both of these products almost anywhere.  I’ve seen them at Walgreens, CVS, Target, the grocery store, and I’ve even seen spin pins at the Dollar Store < < If you find them there, I would recommend stocking up on them.

Do you have any hair products that you use every day that are ‘must-haves’??  I’ve already talked about my other hair essential, the Tangle Teezer, that I’m still passionately in love with it.
