Oldie But Goodie: Psst Dry Shampoo

Last month I decided to try Psst Dry Shampoo an oldie but goodie and it’s absolutely amazing!!!  Because my hair is so long, thick and wavy, I tend to get a lot of questions about how I maintain it and which products I use.  One way I keep my hair under control is with tons of conditioners and serums (as mentioned here) but as you can imagine my hair gets oily in the process.  So, to soak up the excess oil, I use dry shampoo (and I’ve tested dozens of brands).
Not only does it smell great, but it also gave my hair the perfect amount of volume. A bit hard to find in drugstores but easily available online for about 7 bucks (I order three at a time!).

 This was taken after I used Psst and 4 days after my last hair wash.  It absorbs the oil that’s a given so I concentrated on the ends of my hair so you can see the amazing volume Psst gives.  Tip: Use hands instead of brush to distribute the product.

Fashiongrail’s Time Saving Tips With Samsung Stratosphere™

As a mom and a full time blogger, finding time for the things I’m really passionate about (like shopping!) is always a struggle.  I’ve picked up a few a corner cutting tricks that I shared below and would love to hear from everyone what they do to squeeze some time out of the clock!
I buy my kids their own colored or specific patterened socks (argyle and stripes are a fave!) so I can avoid the endless hassle of trying to match socks for four boys

While on the phone I usually try to find something to be organize, like shoes, jewelry or toys

Finding time to exercise unfortunately gets pushed to the side a lot. So when I’m out shopping I take the stairs up; when parking, I park far away and walk the extra distance. And don’t laugh…when I brush my teeth I do squats!

I take pictures of outfits and pin them on a board in my closet. When I can’t get my mind straight or in a hurry, this has been a life saver.

Take pictures of outfits and pin on a board in your closet.  When in a rut and you can’t find an outfit to wear this will be a life saver!

And of course, I would be lost without my gadgets (especially my phone!).

My Favorite Hair Products

Love having long thick wavy hair, but it can be a bit overwhelming during the summer.  The last thing I want to do on a long hot day is blow dry my hair for 30 minutes and then straighten for another 15!  After years of buying every frizz free product out there I’ve finally tamed my mane with four products. Now if I straighten my hair it last for about 5 days and when I’m to lazy to blowdry and want beachy waves I air dry and still NO FRIZZ! Below are my fave products that I swear by:

Enjoy Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner (I use this along with Enjoy’s conditioner once a week)

Hana Shine Shield Thermal Protectant

Biosilk Shine On Spray
