Spritz on dry shampoo
Matthew Cohen/rd.com When you don’t have time to wash or blow-dry your hair, dry shampoo is your new best friend. One quick spritz is a shortcut to volume and oil-free hair. Simply spray the dry shampoo directly at the roots and massage in for a clean, tousled look. Jeanette Zinno, beauty expert and blogger, shares her special trick: “Use a dry shampoo at night to wake up with fresh textured hair. It has all night to work and absorb.” If you’re in a pinch and don’t have any dry shampoo on hand, run a dryer sheet across your hair, suggests Rochelle Maribojoc from Spa Pechanga. Though it sounds strange, it effectively picks up static, dirt, and oil; even if you plan on throwing your hair into a ponytail or messy bun, it’ll look leagues better. Find out the nine things you don’t know about dry shampoo.
Stock up on travel-size products
Matthew Cohen/rd.com If you’re constantly running late (hey—no judgments!), having a to-go makeup bag full of mini hair and makeup products at the ready is a lifesaver. On those harried mornings, simply grab this trusty tote and do your beauty routine on the fly (on the subway or when you get to your office). Sam & Nic Chapman, makeup artists from Real Techniques, share, “Travel-ready products are fantastic in a bind. If you haven’t had enough time to perfect your look in the morning, you’ll have the tools to freshen it up throughout the day.” (If you are planning to travel, this is the best way to pack makeup.)
