Oh hey there, bedhead!
I have a little gal who isn’t as into styling her hair as I am. Ok, this is a major understatement. I actually chopped her hair into a chic bob because she refused to let me actually touch it.
Anyone else have a hairstyle-averse tot like mine? Who screams like you just threw her Bitty Baby in the trash when you try to brush their hair? Cue: blood-curdling screams, writhing on the floor and sonic boom-volume declarations of abuse. Yep, she’s all mine folks.
Well, the issue with this is that she wants to have her hair braided “just like Elsa” every darn day. Ok kid, let me get this straight- you don’t want me to brush your hair but you want me to magically transform you into a Disney princess? SURE! Let me bibbidi bobbidi boo you with my T3 magic wand and sprinkle some Melanie Mills Gleam Radiant Dust all over your little noggin.
I test out a lot of kids products in my line of work, and when I settle on one and spend my own hard earned cash to continue using it, you know it has my stamp of approval. I have been using SoCozy products since I tested them out almost a year ago and am amazed at what they do to my gal’s ‘do.
First of all, I went on the hunt for a 3-in-1 bath product that wouldn’t make my child break out in lizard-like scales (yes, they have sensitive skin, it has happened before and they thought it was kinda cool…until they realized how itchy that is). I honestly didn’t want to buy separate soap, shampoo and conditioner because I am lazy. There. I said it. Oh, and I didn’t want to have to explain to my husband “The blue bottle is for soap, but don’t put it in her hair! And make sure to follow with the pink bottle, but don’t use that on her bottom.” No nagging.
The SoCozy 3-in-1 Cinch is my clean kid unicorn. No nasty ingredients, it smells divine (and what is better in life than smelling your kid’s hair?), and it works.
And now we move on to the de-tangling portion of our adventure. Little Miss Charlotte is not a fan of brushes, but she loves spraying de-tangler on her hair. The Cinch Detangler is also a Leave-In Conditioner and I notice a huge difference in her hair both from a tangle-free perspective and a softness one. I also use the de-tangler when she wakes up in the morning because this girl tosses, turns, and transforms her head into a rat’s nest by the AM.
Oh the braids. I used to be on the pom pon squad from 6th grade up until my senior year of high school and we had to wear double french braids during performances. We all learned to braid each others hair on the squad, and I am proud to say it is like riding a bicycle. Except for the fact I am trying to braid a mini me who turns her head every 2 seconds. Yup, I end up with fly-aways every time. I used to use hairspray on it but hated the crunchy texture. I dabbed a little Styling Cream on and she looked like Queen Elsa.
I also use the Styling Cream on her brother who has an adorable cowlick. Seriously, people would pay big bucks for his natural style, and we jazz it up a little with the Cream.
I can’t say enough good things about SoCozy- I am thrilled to find a product line that works for my kiddos, smells great, is affordable, and is safe! You can find them online and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores and CVS. Check out the store finder here! Oh! And need a little vacation?
