Why I took a Dryer Sheet to my hair!

I woke up feeling slightly more rested and ran my fingers through my hair. Not too bad, I thought. With all my physical therapy I’ve been sweating a lot and showering way more frequently than I normally would. I had spent the previous morning blowing my hair out (something on pause because of all the sweating) and was pumped to see that it felt good. Finally, one morning where I could get up and go about my day without feeling totally gross from all my leg lifts and squats on the living room floor. – Sidebar, if you didn’t know you’re not supposed to wash your hair every day, we should talk.

Then I thought, I have some dry shampoo, I should just blow out the roots a little to get some extra volume. I have fine hair, it goes limp quickly and it takes a team of professionals to get a Kate Middleton style curl to stay in all day (if I had a team of professionals…). So there I was, drowning in a fog of dry shampoo, then rubbing my head like a balloon on the carpet.

Not only did I look like this:

But I felt less clean than before. Note to self: dry shampoo is maybe not for my hair.

So there I was, my head looking like I came out of a Bill Nye movie, trying everything to get my hair to settle down while Daphne yipped at my frizz. Thanks for the confidence puppy.

Enter the dryer sheet.

Score! Good to go. Grab puppy, try to get her to take a photo with my now smooth hair, photos get steadily more blurry.

Dryer sheets are definitely a handy tool to have around. They’re great for static electricity and you can use them to keep the bugs away in the summertime.

What items around the house have you used in a beauty emergency?
