Shampowder


It's probably not my best kept dirty secret (since it would be pretty visible to anyone looking at me) but I am not good about washing my hair on a daily basis. Don't get me wrong - I'm not a stinky person. I just have two young children and a hectic life. I have a hard time finding time to devote to grooming on many a day. This is why my hair & my husband are really lucky I stumbled upon Shampowder!

Shampowder comes in a convenient blush applicator and that makes it possible to apply it wherever you are. It lives in my purse and on the really hectic mornings I can relax knowing I can use it to save my hair while I'm waiting in the carpool lane. It's also great to have after a sweaty workout. Shampowder is lightly pigmented in several colors to help it blend well with your hair - you wouldn't want to use baby powder and look prematurely gray. Fortunately, Shampowder will not age you. The revitalizing powder absorbs your hairs oils and even gives your hair a little extra body. The subtle vanilla scent is great for deodorizing your hair too!

This week you can WIN a Shampowder to one of my fellow moms in a rush. To enter to win simply comment on this post with why you need a Shampowder - be creative (don't just say I don't have time to shower - we want to know why?) Also please let me know what shade you need (the dark hair/red hair or the light hair). The deadline to enter is October 21st at midnight EST. Winners have 72 hours to claim their prize before a replacement winner is chosen. You can double your chances to win by subscribing to Now What Baby's newsletter. If you are already a subscriber remind me in your comment. Best of luck and I can't wait to read your comments!Best Blogger Tips

Okay, I don't have a baby...yet. I'm 34 weeks pregnant, I have a full time job, and a small business on the side...so I definitely don't wash my hair every day! When I'm short on time, it's one of the first things I cut out of my routine. (I have very frequent pony tail days.) I have actually looked for a product like this! Is it really possible that I will be busier once the baby arrives?!?! I was hoping things will slow down. ;) I think I really need the shampowder...
Thanks! (I'm a subscriber)

Katie said...

Oh, I forgot...the dark hair colored one would be great.

I need the dark haired shampowder because right now we don't have hot water. I HATE cold showers, I don't want to be in there long enough to wash my hair.Maybe I'm a wuss, but shampowder sounds soooo much better than washing my hair in cold water.

Melanie said...

I work about 6 different jobs as well as try and keep a husband in line and I'm 30 something weeks pregnant. This would be perfect...maybe my husband wouldn't come home and ask did you wash your hair today :) I need the light hair color.

I need this because I have a 16 year old who is in football (which takes OVER your life), a 16 month old and well, I am due to deliver again in 2 weeks. I am not sure if I can find time to shower, sleep or survive... Help! Just putting that down freaks me out!!

Wehaf said...

I need this because I have skin problems; my dermatologist has recommended showering or bathing no more than every other day. My skin looks and feels much better (and no, I don't stink!) but my hair doesn't do so well!

I would need the powder for red hair. :)

mom2boys said...

I would really like to have some Shampowder. I have two boys a 4 year old and a 14 month old. They keep me busy and I work part time. I also have aa at home business that I take care of mostly on my own. Let's just say I don't always get around to a shower everyday. I often end up wearing a ponytail to hide this fact. Please count me in for the Shampowder for red hair. ( I also subscribed.) Thanks!

I need this for camping in the summer so I don't feel so gnarly!

blueviolet said...

Are you kidding me? They actually make something like this? Whoa! Brilliant idea. It's not too great to wash colored hair every day my stylist tells me so this would be a great way to freshen it up on those between days! I would love to try the dark hair version!

A 2 month old and a 14 month old...nuff said! When I get a free second, I choose things like eating before shampooing my hair - haha! I'd love the light Shampowder for the rare few minutes....what a lifesaver that would be!

Mommyhood is Thankless said...

When my daughter hears the tub running she thinks it is time to take bath, if she gets in with me she takes up the whole bath so I can't rinse out my hair :( Our shower is broken. So I either have to saty up late or wake up early to wash my hair, when I am too tired to do either most of the time.

seriously I have been looking for this and the fact I can keep it in the purse is handy- on days where I end up at the hospital because of things at 3 am and end up being there days with family and not being able to wash, would be nice instead of feeling like I want to dunk my hair in the sink and wash it- yes I have- its a mess. On those days where you feel good and think oh hair looks fine but by midday oh crap I should have washed it last night. On those days when you are on your third day in the same home clothes because life( and admit it ladies- there are some that may wear the same clothes for a couple days in a row if they are home- my personal philosphy its my home- I am not out to impress anyone- its my life)- well back to you think I am not going anywhere and you have to run to do an emergency call and no time for a shower. This would also be great when you are on a trip and don't want to wash your hair and all that schmele but need a pick me up for the hair. Iwent looking for this last year and only found expensive items- and see there is a demand for it...about time! and the fact they have the color BRAVO! subscriber

I need this! I have always had very oily hair that has to be washed every day. And now that I have a four month old I don't get to wash it that often, so this would be great. I need the dark hair colored one.

Caitlin said...

OOOOOOH! Pick me! I have a ten month old who is going through some "separation anxiety" which, essentially, means that he thinks that, unless he is plastered to my leg or gripping my shirt, I may bolt at any time. He is a chronic short-napper (Why God, Why????!!), and when he naps I need to eat, do dishes and....well....okay, BLOG! Sigh. I need this! It will put a little sparkle back in our love life if I am not weighted down by greasy locks.. ;)

I currently wash my hair every other day due to our schedule. I don't have to be at work until 0900 but my kids start waking up at 530-600am. I get up at 500 am if i want to wash my hair and get it dry before my kids start waking up. I would love to try this.

Leigh said...

Wow, this is genius. I also have naturally oily hair, and it's really fine, but thick. So when I don't shower often enough, I look like a drowned rat.

Like today. I don't remember the last time I had a shower two days in a row, do moms really get that luxury? Now, if only they could make a powder to deal with my legs not getting shaved often enough ;)

(I remember when my son was first born, and trying to shower with a slippery newborn in my arms because I was THAT desperate. And wanting to strangle my husband when he said "Well, why don't you just go take a shower." Oh yeah. A nice, relaxing, screaming baby shower. Thanks babe.)

As part of my attempt to go green I'm taking fewer and shorter showers. This product would help me when there isn't time or need for a full shower and shampoo.

PCasteen said...

WELL I AM NOT HAVING A BABY, BUT I DO HAVE A DARLING HUSBAND THAT I CALL BABY AND HE IS THE BIGGEST HELP TO ME RIGHT NOW ESPECIALLY. I WAS IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT A FEW WEEKS AGO AND BROKE MY RIGHT ARM, BROKE LEFT HAND, CRACKED RIB AND WHIPLASH. THE SHAMPOWDER WHEN CERTAINLY BE A LIFE-SAVER TO ME AND THEN I WOULDN'T HAVE TO ASK MY DH, REVIS FOR HELP EVERY SINGLE DAY WASHING MY HAIR. THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN REALLY NICE TO HAVE THOUGH WHEN I WAS PREGNANT MANY YEARS AGO. I ALWAYS LOVE VIEWING YOUR SITE.

dcala said...

With working full time with two kids my only time to shower is about 10 pm. I'm embarrased to admit it but there are nights when I am just too tired to shower. This Shampowder would come in handy on those days.

elaine said...

I would like to have my daughter try this product. She's 14 and has oily skin and oily hair-her haircolor is red.

Oh wow! What a great product! I'd love to use this as I don't like to wash my hair everyday although I feel like I should! Everyday washing isn't good for the hair, right? :) This would really help! I'd love the one for dark haired girls :) Thanks!

I haven't heard of this product before! That is one of the reasons I am a subscriber to your site. I learn a lot. I don't wash my hair every day and am guilty of using baby powder to make my hair fresher. I like that this product has color and a vanilla scent to it. Please enter me in your delightful drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

I do have time to shower at night, but by late afternoon I am greasy and too busy being a mom. I also have to say I am a fan of dry shampoos and have tried them all - but I hate the aerosol smell,that comes with them. This sounds great with the blush applicator, Light for me please. thank you much.

cathyhall said...

I subscribe, thanks.

Anne S said...

What a great invention! I can think of two reasons this would be helpful for me. First is that I try not to wash my hair every day, but I have baby fine hair and by day 2, it really needs a little help. Second is that I'm a frequent traveler and a product like this would be the perfect thing to take with for those days when the travel schedule is a little crazy or there just isn't a decent shower available. I'd need the dark/red.

Roberta said...

Well, there are just days that you don't wash your hair as too much is going on. I can be forgiven for the morning school run but when I've not got round to it by pick up time, I see those moms eyeing my greasy locks. - Maybe for onc, if I won this, they'd see I do care, its the time.

Okay I don't have time to wash my hair as i have a 31/2 yo and a newborn, i work part time and go to uni parttime too. Lets just say my hair (and my house) suffers!

kagey10 said...

it isn't that I don't have time so much, it is that my hair breaks when I wash it every day. But my scalp still gets oily sometimes...er most of the time. I have been looking for something like this. One crazy person told me to put cocoa powder in my hair instead of baby powder! what in the world!?

karissag at gmail.com

kagey10 said...

raych said...

Ok, I hate showering and styling my hair to begin with (it's really curly, but not a nice-curly), so I put off showering until it's TOTally necessry. What with my husband and myself both being in school full-time right now, 'totally necessary' has taken on new meaning. Like, 'never.'

LadyBug-Kellie said...

I would love this product! And could really use it! I have a baby girl who i stay home with all day every day. Needelss to say I don't get much time to shower. Also my hair tends to look greasy the VERY NEXT DAY after showering & washing it. How is this fair? Exactly. It's not. I would love to win the dark powder - for my dark brown hair. thanks a ton!

Reeva said...

i need this because with a toddler and an infant I rarely have time to do the basics! This would make it a bit easier on me. Thanks for a great giveaway :)

Enjoying your blog

katyshops said...

I have just started working out on a regular basis...I am training for a Half Marathon with my mom. I often don't shower in the morning like I used to...I now wait until after my workout (which can be pretty late sometimes). My hair is very thin and fine and just does not feel clean until I have my shower. I would love to give this a try...it might be just the answer I neeed.

tia82 said...

Hi, I'm a mother of 17 month old twins (boy & girl) plus a 6 year old girl. By the time I get these kids to bed at night..I'm sometimes just too pooped to take a shower! I'd like to win the Shampowder for dark hair girlies!! Thanks :)

I actually went to her site and read her story. Its so inspiring how powerful a women is when she has as she said a necessity and a dream.
I would love the one for dirty blond as my sister would really benefit on those days she complains about it

- Marybeth I. said...

I need this for my daughter - she straightens her hair and hates to wash it but she is also in gymnastics and it gets stinky if she doesn't. SHe needs to wash it at least 3 times a week but this would take her between washings.

saraG said...

I'm due to have my first baby any day now, and once that happens I know showering will not be as easy as it has been in the past! If I win, I'd need the dark-hair color shampowder. Thanks :)

Lilith Silvermane said...

I work full time outside of the home. I work full time in the home. I am a single mom of six children. If I shower on a daily basis I'd be thrilled! This would be nice for those days that things go wrong, and I could use them to deodorize my hair (so my next date doesn't realize my mishap).

I would need the dark haired one

Monica said...

I currently use a powder my friend bought me in France. But, this one leaves my dark hair slightly grey. Unless I brush it our REAllY well. If I had the time to brush so much, I would have the time to lather and rinse!

I can't sit in the shower too long because my toddler twins always want to come in when I'm in there. And once they're in, they get in the shower, and then - fugghedaboutit - before you know it, it's time for naps and NOTHING got done.

The dark hair one for me, please.

Why I need Shampowder to absorb the oil in my hair...
to increase domestic oil supplies, just drill a well on my head.
My hair is light brown.

bison61 said...

dark haired shampowder for me. My hair is very oily so I wash it every day so it doesn't just hang there limp. Maybe this would help at the roots to give me some lift

tiramisu392 (at) yahoo.com

Jenny said...

I am 'poo free, meaning I NEVER shampoo. Shampoo really messes my hair up. Instead, I use baking soda and apple cider vinegar and it works great! I only do this every three days, so the third day is usually ponytail day, but it might not be if I could try some of this! And I have dark hair. Thanks!

The Lady Riposter said...

I would need the one for dark hair. I'm a full-time student and often have evening events but no time to shower and do my hair before I go.

daintythings said...

I could yes the shampowder becuase I never have enough time it the day. I make dream come true, I work for disney in the entertainment dept, while I love my job it doesn't leave much time to myself. It would really be helpful so I wouldnt have to wash my hair everyday and spend more time sleeping! I would need the dark/red color! Thanks for the giveaway!

I don't have time to shower everyday lol. I have a 4 month old son, a 7-year-old son who has autism, i'm closing on our first home together oct. 24th, so i'm packing and cleaning, and i'm getting married oct. 25th. SO, i'm very busy. Don't look great everyday, don't get out of my pj's a lot of days =) great giveaway!

I'd really love to win this for when I go camping. Sometimes when we camp, we get stuck with no showers. Last year, we went camping for 8 days, with no showers. Needless to say, I had to get creative. Thanks!

I need shampowder because I am trying not to wash my hair every day so it will be more healthy!

Julia said...

Well, as a mom of three kids 4 and under, one who has to run to preschool three days a week a, I can't always shower before people have to see me. This would be a fantastic help on those days when I can't shower or just can't wash my hair. Thanks so much! I guess I'd go with the dark hair formula.

Xenia S said...

I have a 2-year-old daughter and am having our second baby in about two months and know that showering is going to fall way down on my list of priorities. I would love an alternative to putting a bandana or hat over my dirty hair, this sounds like a great product!

Thanks!

frugallm said...

Since my daughter started preschool, I have to stay at work an hour later in order to be able to drop her off in the morning. I have a 30 minute commute each day. By the time I get home and get dinner I'm a zombie! I am definately not a morning person either. This sounds like an awesome product! I would need the dark hair.

missdenise said...

I have naturally curly hair and go to great lenghts to straighten it. This would allow me an extra day or two in between washings and same me lots of time from the dreaded straightener.

Amanda said...

The light color would be perfect for me to use after the gym. It would be nice to run errands while I'm already out without looking like a complete disaster! Thanks

America said...

OMG, I have to have this, I have been looking for something just like this. In HS I had a spray shampoo once. Having a one year old and a three year old and a deployed husband and being closer to 40 than 30 I am worn out. I do not have the energy to get up before the kids to wash my hair every morning and most nights just crash, so I must try this product!!!

Rockin' Mama said...

I have curly hair and I like to straighten it with the flat iron. Unfortunately I spend all that time and I end up having to wash it after 2 days because I feel like it's dirty. I'd love to try this to extend the length of time between washings. I have dark hair

Sarah W. said...

I can definitely tell you why I need this product. I use baby powder and look gray many a days :).
I have a 2 year old and a 1 year old. There are many days that I need some help!!
This is so cool. I would go with the lighter hair. I have dark roots most of the time, but I do have highlights LOL!

Julie Bickford said...

As a very busy mom of a 27 month old and a 9 month old (and currently 7 months pregnant with my 3rd boy!) Showering is a luxury usually awarded in 3 minute intervals accompanied by a persistant little voice with such questions as "I come in?" or "you poopin?" Hair elastics have become my best friend and rarely am I seen with my hair down anymore due to my every second day 3 minute showers! This product sounds really neat and I would love to try it in the dark color. I am a subscriber :)

Lolly said...

I would LOVE to win the shampowder. My husband is away for seven months and I care for our 17 month old twins... so this would be wonderful and help me appear like I actually had time to groom :D!

Ames said...

I would need the dark/red color -

I could really use this as I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my first and I'm thinking that in the next couple weeks I may need a little hair help... Do they make a maid powder too?!

Marcia said...

I'd like to win because I work full time. When I come home, I wait for my daughter to nap or go to bed for the night before I can grab a shower. Sometimes I feel like passing out myself before she is even winding down. If I try to get a bath while she's awake, about 5 minutes into filling up the tub, she comes running in and takes her clothes off. She thinks all the baths in this house are hers!

Sarah said...

This week, at least, I need Shampowder because the heat is broken in my house. I took a shower yesterday, but when the inside temperature is 59, having wet hair makes for some very cold mornings.

PS said...

I have dark brown hair. Why do I need this, well to be honest, there are some nights when my husband and I are up "late" and because I am so worn out the next morning, I'll happily skip a shower to get an extra ten minutes of sleep before the kids get up.

Brooke said...

My stepdaughter needs this. She's a teenager and truly obsessed with her hygiene and looks. One of these in her bag and if she didn't have enough time for her hour long showers in the morning, she could still feel fresh.

Audra said...

Like all busy moms I could really use this product- My hair is quite long and it takes a good 45 minutes to wash dry and style. The reason that I REALLY REALLY need this products is to take camping when otherwise doing my hair is not even an option! Who want's to be a frump- even in the great outdoors?

My locks are a med brown so I would love the dark version. Thanks so much for the AWEsome Give-a-way!

Angelina said...

I have a little one and often do not have time for washing my hair. I would love to possess the dark hair colored one.

Megan said...

Oh I think I am in love! I am not a mom (yet) but work full time and go to school full time! Luckily I do both from the comfort of my own home. However, I am so busy that some days I don't feel like putting in the effort for washing my hair! (How horrible is that!)

Cherry_Blossom said...

We got into a car accident on 10/18, a drunk driver hit us, I would really need this seeing how I can't really move around (lots of cracked and bruised bones). I'm dark haired and this item seems really interesting. And the accident really did happen, the car looks horrible and we were very lucky!

lace said...

I don't have any time to wash my hair because my youngest niece (who I care for) is always into things. I turn my back and she's dumping stuff off the table. I'm sitting next to her on the floor and somehow manages to make every toy around her explode off of the shelves. I can't take my hands/eyes off of her to go wash my hair.

I'd like the dark hair powder.
