When I was little, I had stick straight, thick hair that hung down my back. My mom would brush it in the morning and I remember crying, the brushing hurt so badly. Fast forward to today, and I find myself making my own daughter cry as I brush her hair. She has craaazy hair which is half curly, half straight and a whole lotta frizz. Taming the hair monster is no easy feat, but these products
have made it a wee bit easier. (Psst–added bonus–all are paraben free and don’t contain harsh chemicals.)
Don’t let the color protecting part fool ya–this product is great for anyone. After my daughter showers and washes her hair, we put a bit of this on the bottom half (not near the scalp) and the ends and then brush it through. It has such a silky feeling, and leaves her hair so soft. I put it in a loose braid, and when she wakes up in the morning, her hair falls nicely and combs through oh-so-easily.

If I’m feeling lazy and we forgoe the aforementioned process, my daughter wakes up with a lions mane. I spray this solution all over, brush it bit by bit with a Wet Brush, and the tangles come out. The spray has a delicious smell, which makes the entire process that much enjoyable.

I received this beauty as a Birchbox sample one month, and it’s one of the full size products that I’ll actually end up buying. It adds shine and protects from the sun. After brushing in the morning, if my girl still has frizz (which is always), I put a teeny bit of this on her ends. Not only does it take away the unrulyness, but it smells divine, and I love rubbing any excess into my hands as lotion.
