Running late? You can still get great hair with ColorProof!

This morning I woke up late. I don’t mean 10 minutes late. I don’t mean one too many taps on the snooze button late. I mean an entire 45 minutes LATE. You know how it goes – getting sleepy kids up and ready, then stepping in who knows what…something that one of the pets threw up (you hope it’s vomit because any alternative you can conjure up is waaay worse), forgetting your phone and having to run back inside, all while knowing there is a meeting starting without you and YOUR BOSS IS THERE WONDERING WHERE YOU ARE. I am almost breaking into a rash just thinking about it.                                                                                                                            samples

ColorProof DrySpell and PowderFix So unfortunately, since my alarm clock is about 20 years old, this hectic morning thing happens more often than I want to admit. I have actually developed a routine for this just in case. I have an ’emergency’ outfit in the event I have no time to root around in my closet. I have a makeup bag filled with what I need to either A) apply a reasonable look in about three minutes and/or B) take it to work so I can put my makeup on there. I always have a supply of awesome body wipes in case there is truly no time to shower, and I am never, ever, ever without dry shampoo.
ColorProof Epic Hold HairsprayA line that never lets me down is ColorProof.  They carry my most favorite hairspray of all time, the HardCore Epic Hold Color Protect Hairspray (I buy them five cans at a time from Amazon).  Two other products that I always have on hand, especially for those ‘running so late I’m out of breath’ days, are The ColorProof DrySpell Color Protect Dry Shampoo and PowderFix Texturing Powder.
ColorProof DrySpellI try to get four days out of a good shampoo.  However, because I am also committed to breaking a sweat every day (hopefully from working out and not from running late), I need a dry shampoo and I need a styling product that puts some texture and volume back into my hair.
ColorProof DrySpellColorProof DrySpell Color Protect Dry Shampoo is a godsend. The superfine powder shampoo is a mixture of cornstarch, rice and clay that absorbs oil and gives hair a light clean scent. The mist is so fine it doesn’t ever build up and look chalky or flaky. An added bonus: it provides color and heat protection. Here’s how I use it: I quickly section my hair into about six sections, then spray the dry shampoo a good 5 inches away from my scalp. Any closer doesn’t give me as great of a result. After spraying, I put all my hair up in a big clip and run around doing whatever else needs to be done. Finally, I unclip my now completely dry hair and quickly run my fingers through, fluffing it up and fully distributing the dry shampoo.
ColorProof PowderFixColorProof PowderFixAfter that, I will add in some of the PowderFix Texturing Powder on my crown, part and bangs. This extremely fine and wonderfully silky powder gives my hair tremendous lift, volume, and texture. It feels almost wet in my hands. I just pour a bit into my palm, rub it together, then flip my hair over and apply along my part and crown. I like this method better than sprinkling it on, although you may prefer that application technique. The powder goes matte and sinks right in, giving my hair the most wonderful boost of body and texture. It’s fantastic.
I usually get my ColorProof products from Amazon, but you can find this extraordinary line at many salons throughout the country. When you put together your emergency beauty kit, be sure to include these items for an awesome hair day no matter how stressful it started that morning.  – Lisa
