Tresemme' Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TRESemmé for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. 

Being a mom of 2 young kids (3 and under) leaves me little time for showering and washing my hair!  Keeping busy hands out of trouble and spending time with my little cuties trumps being clean any day! So, I wear A LOT or pony tails and braids.   Did you know that you are not supposed to wash your hair everyday anyway?!  I just found that out!  Your hair will be LESS greasy if you don't wash your hair as often!  It is true! 

But there is a new way to wash your hair... with NO WATER! TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo lets you rock your hair without the time it takes to wash it with traditional shampoo and water.
Julia Allison is giving away a $500 gift card to target so check out the video and enter to win!

Here are some quick tips on how to use TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo and get the best results:
1. Shake the can vigorously before use and in between spray bursts for best results.
2. Lift sections of dry hair and spray lightly at roots.  Make sure you spray in short bursts, holding 8-12 inches from head. Don’t spray it like hair spray (all over and continuously)
3.  Leave in for 1-2 minutes.  Then use your fingertips or a brush to distribute product evenly
***If clogging occurs, remove nozzle and rinse the nozzle under warm water, then reattach. ***

Here is a little more information about the TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo:
It includes complete line of dry shampoos that revive your style’s look and feel on days you skip a shampoo (just what a mom needs!).  It is uniquely formulated to absorb excess oil and remove odor, the full line of dry shampoos rejuvenates hair without a drop of water.
