In all honestly, not only am I terrible at styling my hair, but I really hate having to do it. I find taking the time to blow dry, straighten, or curl my hair exhausting, and usually pointless since I normally hate the results. Now that I have a newborn, I really look for ways to cut time off my haircare whenever possible, or at least extend my style when I do take the time to do it. That means I usually grab a dry shampoo to help salvage a previous good hair day, or to help make a terrible hair day at least somewhat decent.

I decided to try a new product that isn’t really a dry shampoo, but a styling product that texturizes, amplifies, and refreshes. The Triple Sec 3-in-1 from Drybar claims to deliver these three benefits. This airy dry spray creates instant texture, volume, and body.

 I have very fine hair, so something that can help with texture, especially when it has just been washed is something I look for. Because it’s fine, I also love that this adds volume and body, but without weighing it down. This product claims to be perfect for refreshing limp locks, providing a soft, matte texture for a perfectly tousled look. It also claims to amplify flat hair for intense volume and fullness, and absorb oils, leaving hair feeling fresh and clean. I was skeptical at first of these claims because most styling products feel like they really weigh my hair down, and most dry shampoos leave my hair feeling crunchy or with a horrible white cast that never seems to disappear.

This product is incredibly light, yet really adds lots of texture and volume to my hair. I also love that is helps to absorb oil like a dry shampoo, since I have have pretty oily hair, especially during the warmer months. It is scented quite strongly, which I normally don’t care for, but it is a very pleasant scent, and doesn’t linger too much. 

Overall, I love the Triple Sec, and it has been a mainstay in helping my hair look somewhat decent during these first months with a baby, and I plan on keeping it in my haircare lineup for good!


For me, Cameron’s birth was a lesson in the futility of well made plans. From the beginning of this pregnancy, James and I had planned on having a natural home birth. I felt that I would be most comfortable that way, and barring any complications, there was no medical reason that prevented us from doing […]

The end of summer is fast approaching, but if your weather is anything like mine, you still have quite a while to appreciate these popsicles.  This is a very simple recipe that is easy to adapt to your flavor preferences- I chose to stick with a classic strawberry and cream combo, but go ahead and […]

We finally got Cameron’s nursery all set up, and I thought I would share it with everyone. It is pretty simple and very neutral, since we didn’t want to find out the gender of our baby, and we both aren’t big fans of bright colors and patterns. We also knew we would be moving during […]
