Before I had the girls, when I only ever imagined my life with two boys, I never thought about the possibilities of buying pretty dresses, frilly ankle socks, cute little hair grips and styling their hair in a multitude of ways. And yet now, having two very girly girls, dressing them up to look equally gorgeous, and scouring You Tube for tutorials on the most intricate of braids, I can’t imagine a life without my daughters.
Everywhere we go, people always comment on the girls hair; so perfectly blonde, thick and shiny, reaching way down their back, leading both of the girls to truly believe that they are Rapunzel. And yet as beautiful as it is, it’s a nightmare to take care of, particularly on a Monday morning, when we have over slept, and have approximately fifteen minutes to get everybody up and dressed….and their hair is knotted with their morning Weetabix. In that way, I completely understand why parents of young girls opt for a very practical bob!
So anything that helps to make our life easier, and take care of the girls hair at the same time, is always welcomed. And through a combination of four products we have finally found the winning formula that means our little Rapunzel’s can keep their hair right down to their bottoms, until the dreaded day comes when they ask to have it all chopped off!
L’oreal Kids Extra Gentle 2 in 1
Of all the shampoos I have tried for the girls, this is our favourite. Neither of the girls enjoy having their hair washed, our next door neighbours must wonder what the hell we are doing to the children given the noise they make at bath time but, with this being a shampoo and conditioner in one, it halves the time it takes to wash their hair and leaves it beautifully soft and shiny afterwards.
Schwarzkopf Supersoft Kids Detangling Spray
At just £2 this detangling spray is a lifesaver! I spray it on while their hair is still damp just to give it some added softness and protection while blow-drying, and again in the morning to detangle if they’ve had a particularly restless night. Megan is ridiculously hair sore and this prevents many a melt down!
Tangle Angel Brush
I doubt that there is a hairbrush out there we haven’t tried over the last four years. We’ve been through every comb, soft bristled brush, hard toothed brush, and so many different tangle teasers I’ve lost count, and yet none have been as good as this one.
The Tangle Angel professional detangling brush is not only perfect for detangling both wet and dry hair, but also makes a great blow drying brush and is suitable for all hair types. Available in a range of gorgeous colours, it is anti-static, anti-bacterial, water resistant and, due to it’s ergonomic shape, it doesn’t slip out of your hand in the same way that other tangle teasers can. I can honestly say that it is the best £14.95 I’ve spent on a brush, anyone who has witnessed one of Megan’s meltdowns from having her hair brushed will completely understand when I say, I’d even pay double!!
Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Blow & Go Nuts Dryer
Not only is this hairdryer the most gorgeous colour of pink and rose gold (you can just imagine the girls faces when they saw it!), but it actually nourishes and repairs your hair while it dries.
Previously I would try to avoid blow drying the girls hair when possible as it has a tendency to dry out, but with the grille of this dryer infused with coconut oil, it promises to dry hair quicker, sleeker, softer and healthier, and we noticed a huge improvement on how shiny and sleek the girls hair was after blow drying.
With a powerful 2400W motor, we were able to dry the girls hair twice as fast, and finish with the cool shot function to lock in all of that shininess.
The dryer has two speeds and three heat settings to keep you in control, an air concentrator to help with precision styling, a removable rear grille for easy cleaning and maintenance and a risk free, 2 year guarantee. And with results like these, I would recommend it to anyone!
