I have two concurrent hair problems happening right now.

The first is that I am fairly clueless about hair and beauty in general. I love shopping for makeup and watching tutorials, but when it comes to actually enacting said beauty and hair lessons on my own head, I end up looking like my kid's Barbie doll that got partially sucked down the bathtub drain one too many times.

The second is that my pandemic hair situation is, well… a situation. I haven't had a haircut since February and let's just say that I am not as "ungray" as I thought I was prior to Covid.

I am pretty low-maintenance, so overall I am okay with my hair problems—but I can't help but want to feel put together and pretty at least sometimes. That's why I am completely obsessed with my hairdryer—The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumizer Hot Air Brush—and it's on sale right now.

This hair dryer is a big oval brush that dries as you brush it through your hair—this means I don't have the fumble with a hairdryer in one hand and a brush in the other, meaning I have way more control with the Hot Air Brush.

It smoothes hair as it dries, so my hair is shiny and sleek in a matter of minutes (I'm also obsessed with Verb Ghost Oil for its hair-smoothing magic). And, the shape makes it super easy to add volume as I go. For reference, I have a lot of fairly thin, shoulder-length hair, and my hair goes from towel-dry to completely dry in under 10 minutes with this dryer.

One more thing: I often use this on two-or-three day hair. I splash a little of water on my hair, run the hair dryer through it, and then add some dry shampoo, and I have almost instant volumized, fresh-looking hair.

I am not a beauty editor by any stretch of the imagination. But waxing poetic about this hair dryer is easy-peasy. I really am in love with it and can't recommend it more highly as the ultimate mama hair-hack.

Verb Ghost Oil

ghost hair oil

A few drops of this oil make hair instantly healthier-looking and oh-so-shiny. It's free of parabens, sulfates and cruelty so I feel good about using it as often as I do. It smells divine and totally elevates my hair-look with ease.




Batiste dry shampoo

This is my go-to dry shampoo. It's inexpensive (which is good because I use it, um, a lot) but super effective. My hair is left clean and volumized, and smelling pretty awesome, as well.
