A Mom's Morning Quickie

Sometimes all I feel like is a morning quickie.  I'm tired, I don't really have time or energy to put into the real thing, I'm in a rush but I still have a need.   The need is real and I can't leave home without taking care of it.  That's when I turn to the kitchen.  I know, crazy as it may seem, the kitchen holds the answer for me.  The kitchen you wonder?!?  Oh, I get where you think I was going with's my hair!  

Some mornings I wake up and my hair just looks a little too greasy for my liking.  It's not really dirty but just a little limp around the roots.  The ends definitely don't need another wash (yes, maybe a little over-processing there) but the roots are crying out for help.  I know there are a million dry shampoos on the market and I've tried a few but in all honesty, nothing has worked better for me, this solution is inexpensive and always on hand.  The key is cornstarch.

So, here's how it works.  
  1. I take my box of cornstarch, sprinkle a little on my brush.  
  2. Turn my head upside down so my hair is hanging towards the floor
  3. Start brusing from the back of my head forward* 
  4. Flip my head back up and brush into my hair into place
* That way if I have a little too much cornstarch on the brush it doesn't end up thick at my hairline or sprinkled on my face.  

The bonus for me is that I have pretty thin hair and this tends to give me a thicker look.  It also makes my hair much easier to style.

I've tried with baby powder too and while I love the smell, it tends to leave my hair full of electric static which is then a new problem I have to deal with.  Cornstarch is the secret recipe to my "quickie" morning hair routine for sure.  

Here's to great looking hair and a morning quickie!
