I’ve always had a ton of hair. I’ve managed to survive three post partum periods with massive hair loss. Aside from the spark plug situation going on around my hair line, I haven’t seen a major difference in my hair thickness or growth. But, on the flip side, I started getting grays early in my late twenties. The gray hairs only worsened with each pregnancy. And, my hair grows at a rapid speed; which means that my gray hairs grow out quickly between hair appointments.
If there’s anything I enjoy for me-time, it’s getting in with my stylist for a hair cut and color appointment. However, as a mom of three little boys, this is a quarterly event. As much as I’d like to get in at the sign of my grays growing out, it’s just not possible. Because mom life, am I right?!
So as I count down to the next time I’ll see my stylist, here’s a few ways for how to maintain your hair between color appointments:
- Don’t Shower Every Day: HAHAHAHAHA. I know, like you even have to try with this one! Over washing my hair dries it out and dulls the color very quickly. I try to wash my hair every other day (or sometimes even less frequently.) Thankfully, this step doesn’t take much effort. And my hair stays more vibrant and healthier for a longer period of time.
- Use Temporary Hair Care: When I found Gray Away Temporary Root Concealer Spray at my local Walgreen’s, I knew it was the product for me. If you’re looking for how to maintain your hair between color appointments, I highly recommend using Gray Away. I love using it when I need a quick fix to hide my grays. It’s the fastest and easiest way to temporarily touch-up and cover gray roots. Perfect for my on-the-go busy life as a mom of three!
Gray Away is super easy to use with its unique pinpoint applicator that provides targeted coverage for wherever you need it. The hair concealer is super light and I don’t even notice that there’s any product in my hair. The best part for me is that it is fast drying and sweat resistant. Because y’all know I’m a sweaty mess chasing after my three rambunctious little boys!
- Use Coconut Oil: A couple of times a week, I like to apply a little bit of coconut oil to the ends of my hair. It helps to keep the split ends at bay and, overall, provides a barrier that helps keep my hair moisturized.
- Take Prenatal Vitamins: I am currently nursing little B, so this is a regular part of my routine. For those of you who don’t need to take prenatal vitamins, you can take Vitamin E or biotin instead. I love that my daily vitamins helps to keep my hair healthy and vibrant.
In this chaotic phase of (mom) life, I need simple and easy ways to make sure that I am taking care of myself in the midst of caring for others. While I can’t get my hair done as frequently as I did before I had kids, I love that I can maintain my hair with quick and affordable ways. As you can see in the before and after pictures below, Gray Away is the perfect temporary solution to my gray roots.
