Mums Essentials Guide: Bad Hair Days

Mums Essentials

Bad Hair Days!

We’ve all been there before we go to bed look at our hair mirror and think urgh I’ll wash it in the morning, the kids are always up at 6 so that’s plenty of time before you have to be out the door at 8 for the school run.

Of corse next morning – the one morning you want to be up early the little sods sleep in till 7:30, I now 30 mins to get everyone washed fed and dressed that hair wash and blow-dry has gone right out the window so this is my mum’s essentials guide to a bad hair day. This happens to me at least once a week!

First I’m gonna want some dry shampoo in there I’ve been using the plump it up from Vo5 for a few weeks (it was on offer) pretty good helps disguise the greasy look (yuk!) and puts in some much needed volume! I spray it right on to the roots and leave it this is key brush it straight away and you’ll brush it all out and be back to square one. If you are out or dry shampoo then another good thing to use is talc, if you have dark hair though just go easy on it!


After its been in my hair for 5-10 mins Brush it all through I’ve been using the Satin-Hair 7 brush* recently which is a clever little thing the ion jet releases millions of active ions creating a halo around your hair, active ions work very much like a conditioner, they instantly tame frizz and fly away hair.



So now it’s looking clean(ish) and not so knotty so its time to try to do something with it, I never have time to straighten my hair nowadays so it tends to go up quick hair styles for me are a bun – I cheat and use a doughnut makes it a hell of a lot neater or I go for a french plait to the side think Elsa but not quite so princesse!
Quick bit of hair spray and I’m good to go!

If after the above you hairs still looking pants which can sometimes be the case I suggest a hat until you can rush home and wash it!

My shampoo and conditioner of choice at the minute is Creighton’s sunshine blonde range* and I really like it, it’s moisturising without weighing hair down, I often find that with some deeply moisturising conditioners they feel great right after washing but then just look dull and greasy within a day. The best bit is this award-winning stuff is actually available in the pound shop for (you guessed it) £1! Bargain.  53570cd852eca012518795_w330h270

So that is what I do on a bad hair day, what about you? do you have any tips and tricks? I’d love to hear them!

    We have been testing out the Satin Hair brush and it has been really good with all the different types of hair we have going on in our house. x

    That hair brush looks brilliant. I have very fly away hair so anything that prevents static and frizz is a winner. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
