Every new mom has had one of those sleep-deprived, mombie days, where you just can’t muster the time or energy for a shower. And everyone has their tricks to hide those unwashed locks, from hats and headbands to the more recent invention of dry shampoo, but this new beauty product is by far the best.

If you love the idea of dry shampoo, but can’t stand the weird, powdery residue it leaves behind, then you’ll love these new blotting papers for your hair. The Swipe Up Charcoal Dry Shampoo Hair Blotting Tissues by IGK come wrapped in individual packets that are easy to slip in your diaper bag should that quick run to the store suddenly turn into a day-long outing. The sheets, as Bustle reports, resemble something between tissue paper and a dryer sheet. The best part is they leave absolutely no residue when you use them to blot away oil from your scalp.


The Swipe Up Charcoal Dry Shampoo Hair Blotting Tissue is available at Sephora for $18. The package comes with 16 one-time use wipes that are paragon, sulfate and pthalate-free.
