Got a hair emergency? There are two awesome drugstore products that will never let you down! PR samples
1. The Scunci Hair Emergency Kit ($7) has saved me many times over. The cute little zippered gray bag holds so much it’s almost like a magic trick. The kit includes bobby pins, elastics, headwraps, a jaw clip and polybands. Pretty much everything you need for any hair emergency you might encounter, including oversleeping, a sudden rainstorm, and that horrible moment when you discover the back of your hair (which you forgot to check before you left that morning) is an embarrassing disaster.
2. Let’s put this one into the ‘I never knew I needed this, but now I will never be without it’ file – the Conair Dry Shampoo Brush ($7).
I use dry shampoo all the time. I have long, color-treated hair that can’t take being washed every day…but second and third day hair is not kind to my bangs. They go all limp and look greasy. So I use dry shampoo to spruce them up – I spray along my hair-line all the way around as well as on my part. Sometimes I will use dry shampoo on first day hair for a little more texture and volume. And sometimes I use it because I am, as usual, running late and I just don’t have time for anything but hair triage.
Dry shampoo is awesome, but it has drawbacks if it’s not applied properly. Most dry shampoos have a white cast, which is not good for someone with dark hair who is always trying to hide those tell-tale grey roots as it is. That’s where the magic of the Conair Dry Shampoo Brush comes into play.
This brush has a combo of boar bristles and nylon bristles. The boar bristles are on the inside of the brush, and they distribute the dry shampoo into the hair while brushing out the dirt and oil. The nylon bristles on the outer portion lift up the hair and give it lots of volume. So hair is lifted while the dry shampoo is evenly distributed, making those tell-tale white patches a thing of the past.
The Conair Dry Shampoo Brush is a nifty invention that is absolutely worth the extremely affordable price tag. Pick up one of these babies for the best dry shampoo results possible.
Hair emergencies are going to happen, so you might as well remember the Girl Scout motto and be prepared – and these two drugstore finds are just what you need. – Lisa
