My mother use to say “Some day you’re going to have a daughter just like you and then you’ll understand!” Well she was right. I have a six year old daughter that, in many ways, is a lot like me. Although I’m pretty sure my mother was talking attitude (which yes my daughter did inherit from me so there you go mom) one of the things I definitely passed down is the hair. It’s not really red like mine but it is thick and coarse and a lot to handle. Which means a lot of “ouch!” and “that hurts!” when I’m trying to make her look less like a wild animal and more like a child actually raised by humans. It’s a challenge that I’m betting many of you are quite familiar with. So what’s a parent to do? You condition. You detangle. You seek out whatever tools you can find that are going to make this job easier on both of you. And every once in a while you actually find something that works.
Of course when you’re dealing with a little fashionista, you can’t completely neglect style for the sake of comfort. So thank goodness for Goody® Ouchless® Girls products. With style, comfort and a great selection of hair tool and accessories, the Goody® Ouchless® Girls line is a huge hit in our house.
If you have a little one with hard-to-tame hair then you have to get your hand on these brushes. Honestly, I’ve tried all the things. Every brush on the market that is supposed to help effortlessly get through tangles and knots. Most of them really don’t work. They either just plain hurt or they simply make the top of the hair look smooth but leave a rat’s nest underneath. I am genuinely impressed with how well these brushes work. And I know my daughter would agree. And the really great thing is not only can I can get them through her hair without any tears but when she brushes her own hair she actually does a great job now.
In case you haven’t heard, the Goody® Ouchless® Girls Brush is a recent PTPA (Parented Tested Parent Approved) winner! That means it’s put to the test by real life parents so you can be confident that this brush does exactly what it promises. You don’t have to take my word for it – read what other moms had to say about the Ouchless Brush.
Now let’s talk style. There are so many really cool products that I had a tough time picking which ones to feature here. So I let Molly take the lead. Her first pick was this pretty Goody® Simple Styles™ Gibson Roll Kit.
Looking at the picture on the box I wasn’t sure how easily I could pull this off. I’m great with a curling iron and can pull off a couple of decent braids but complex hair styles are not my strong suit. But I was promised I could accomplish this look in 3 easy steps…
Slip on the headband
Roll small sections of hair up and under the band
Secure ends with a bobby pin or two.
It really was that simple. I thought I might struggle a bit with her hair not quite being should length but I pulled it off without a hitch.
Next Molly decided she wanted to try this adorable Goody Girls Bun Maker. Her hair is too short to get it all into a pony tail so we decided to do a smaller bun just at the top and it turned out really cute! Again it was accomplished in three easy steps as promised.
Next up we tried out the SlideProof Secure Fit Elastics. These are perfect for thick hair like Molly’s (and mine). There are definitely going to be in my arsenal come cheer competition season when I have to keep her hair in perfect pigtails!
And of course, it’s Molly so we had to dress up the look with a pretty Goody® Ouchless® Scrunchie and Bobby Slide with a bit of bling in it.
How cute is this reversible head band?
And how about a blast from the past? Somethings, like these awesome Goody® plastic barrettes are just timeless. I remember these fondly!
So, after Molly picked out some of her favorite Goody® products to try and feature for you she got her hair cut. Seriously cut. So we just had to show you at least one picture featuring her new look (along with a pretty stretchy headband). I wish I was even half as photogenic as this kid!
