Try DIY dry shampoo
If you find yourself running tragically late one morning, and your munchkin is sporting some distressingly dirty locks, don't panic! Try this DIY dry shampoo recipe using baby powder. Make it ahead and keep it on hand for emergencies!
Chalk it up
When your daughter wants to try out colored hair strands, but you aren't ready for the commitment, try hair chalking, which creates a super fun, but temporary effect. It's fast and perfect if you have a few extra minutes one morning; you know, once you've gotten more accustomed to this back to school thing.
Detangle in two
Got a kiddo with a head full of tangles and nary a drop of detangler left? No worries; you can make a homemade version with just two, yes two, ingredients you already have in the house—hair conditioner and water. Better yet, it will take about two minutes or less to concoct.
Prompt the peewees in the house
You've got a million things going on in the morning. Wouldn't it be great if your kids could take care of a few things on their own, like brushing their hair? Try these printable flashcards that act as reminders for little ones getting acclimated to the a.m. back to school routine.
