I dunno if everyone besides me already knows this, but I recently discovered a super awesome way to NOT have to wash my hair as often and I figured I'd share with you. Just in case you didn't already know (or do) this.
Oh but first, to prolong the suspense... LOOK! It snowed a lot in Rochester! We've been really lucky so far- I mean it's already almost mid-December and we really haven't gotten a big storm!
Thank goodness I work from home.
I finally cleaned my car off and discovered that it was under a FOOT (!!!) of snow. Thats crazy! And yes, I did use a ruler to get an accurate measurement.
Okay, back to what I was saying. Ready for the way to wash your hair less?
.......... second drumroll......
Sleep with your hair in a bun!!
Did you already know this? (tell me I'm not the last to know!)
I've started throwing my hair up in a bun before I go to bed (nothing fancy, just literally twist it up and secure with a bobby pin... you're gonna be sleeping so it can be messy, just as long as it's UP). It's usually all jacked up by the time I wake up but at least it's been kinda-semi-up the whole night, that's all that matters!
Normally, my hair gets gross and greasy within a DAY of washing it (tmi? eh, whatever) but sleeping with it up like this lets me go like 3 days between washing my hair instead of my usual 2*! It's glorious.
*PS any other girls out there get annoyed when you try to explain to your boyfriend that washing your hair every day actually isn't good for your hair? I tried to tell Mike this the other day and he just kept going "It's making your hair clean; it's not bad!" and I'm like "UGHHHHH I give up... I am never going to convince you"
In other news, Wednesday night I had a massive craving for chocolate chip cookies but didn't have chocolate chips. So I googled around for something chocolate and found this chocolate mug cake recipe. It's only 3 ingredients-- so easy!
Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake
- 1 egg
- 1/4 c. powdered sugar
- 2 T. cocoa powder
Mix it all up in a mug, microwave for 1 minute on high, done!
I topped mine with chocolate syrup and marshmallow ice cream topping. It was really good. I mean, no chocolate chip cookie... but a close second.
What's your go-to when you have a strong dessert craving?
Mine is usually chocolate chip cookies!! I really need to keep chocolate chips stocked in my pantry. But then again I'd probably just eat them by the handful. Perhaps that's why I'm currently all out...
