I woke up late this morning.
My alarm went off. I turned it off. I went back to sleep. It happens. Thankfully I only slept an extra 10 minutes before my internal Big Ben went off.
As we all know, there are certain sacrifices we ladies have to make when over snoozing gets the best of us. For me this means brushing my teeth in the shower with one hand while Venus'ing my legs with the other, simplifying my makeup routine to mascara, blush and lipgloss, and skipping my daily shampoo. Normally on days like this, I would arrive at work making the walk of shame to my desk with bloody legs and flat/lifeless/greasy hair...but today I look fab, because Venus razors have protective cushions surrounding the blades, and because I had Batiste on my side.
Batiste is a little spray of heaven in a can that I discovered while vacationing in England last Spring Break. I remember it like it was yesterday, I witnessed two fashionable Brits on two separate occasions [one at Topshop, one strolling down the streets of Piccadilly Circus] pull colorful cans out of their Burberry bags that they proceeded to blast their scalps with. They sprayed it in, combed it out, and that was that. Their heads looked cleaner and actually smelled delicious (at least the Topshop chick's head did...I got a whiff while waiting behind her for the dressing room).
We've all been turned on to the new dry shampoo revolution that has blown up in recent years, but here's the thing - Batiste has been around for 30 years. A little secret that Brits have tucked away along with their great grandmums' bangers and mash recipes, Batiste has been eliminating bad hair days for decades without water, absorbing dirt, oil and product buildup, leaving your hair feeling clean, fresh and texturized with just a few simple spritzes.
Batiste’s new FRESH Dry Shampoo is the latest addition to the Batiste family, and I'm proud to report that it is now available in the states. Inspired by the rainforest, FRESH features lush green notes, a fruity twist of pear and citrus accents, invigorating floral scents and base notes of woody musk and sandalwood. Best of all, it's unisex, so your boyfriend can use it too... I mean, without smelling like a petunia.
Now you can skip a day or two between washes and/or hit happy hour with stylish, sweet smelling tresses. I especially love it as an instant fix right after a workout. Score your own cans of Batiste at Ulta stores and at folica online for a mere $7.99 a can.
Then sleep in late tomorrow, because you can.
