Thank you to SoCozy for sending us these children’s haircare products for review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own, based on personal experiences with the product. #SoCozyBTS
It’s no secret that I can’t do hair. I’ve had the same bob-style haircut for over a decade because it is simple to do and I can’t mess it up. When it comes to my daughter’s “do” – it really is a hair-raising experience.
It’s taken a lot of time and a lot of practice, but I have gotten better with my daughter’s hair. At least I can tame her locks enough that she doesn’t look like she’s got a rat’s nest on top of her head!
I’m also working on stepping up my very limited styling game, especially now that school has started again. All the rage in my daughter’s preschool class is to have braids like Anna and Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen” and she constantly begs me to do her hair that way. I always try my best, but my braids usually turn out lopsided with lots of wisps of hair that just don’t seem to make it into the braid while I’m plaiting.
But I’m not giving up!
I’ve quickly learned that a key element to styling my daughter’s hair – and for that matter my son’s – is that it all starts in the bath, with their haircare products.
We just started using SoCozy products and I have to say, I’m impressed. SoCozy is a salon level quality of hair care products that don’t contain any “nasties,”– you know harmful chemicals, toxins and parabens. Their products are made using extracts and natural ingredients such as hops, rosemary, arnica flower and aloe. They’re also gluten, wheat and nut free – which is super important to many families with sensitive skin or food allergies.
SoCozy comes in fun, bright and multi-colored packaging and feature sweet-smelling scents that my kidlets love. Here are some of our favorites:
- Cinch 2 in 1 Shampoo + Body Wash in Guav-o-rama ($11.95 for 8oz.) – Any product that does double duty – part shampoo/part body wash – and makes things easy peasy for me is total a win! It lathers nicely for both hair and body and is tear-free.
- Cinch Super Hydrating Conditioner in Berry Whip ($11.95 for 8 oz.) – This conditioner is super-luxe. It’s thick and creamy yet somehow incredibly lightweight, so it doesn’t weigh hair down. This conditioner not only hydrates, but also helps to detangle hair.
- Behave Styling Mousse Medium Hold in Peachy-keen ($11.95 for 6 oz.) – I don’t usually use mousse in my daughter’s hair, because it tends to weigh down her pin-straight, super-fine hair. However, this mousse is a featherweight foam that boosts fine hair or defines curls. Perfect to tame fly-aways and unwanted frizz. My son uses this mousse too, to spike up the front of his hair.
- Cinch Detangler + Leave In Conditioner in Fruity-tutti ($11.95 for 8 oz.) – This by far is my favorite SoCozy product. It’s made drying and styling my daughter’s hair soooo much easier. I just spray some of this leave in conditioner on her hair and I can run a comb or a brush effortlessly through her hair. There’s no tugging and no pulling of tangles which means no tears!
You can find SoCozy products at beauty and personal care emporiums like C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries, Soap.com and Follica.com as well as go-to children’s shopping destinations including giggle and many more. You can also buy their products directly from their own website at www.socozy.com.
So all these great haircare products gave me the confidence to try braiding my daughter’s hair again. With guidance from Cozy’s Compete Guide to Girls’ Hair – which is filled with great tips for styling girl’s hair from the best cuts for different face shapes, to instant fixes for bad hair days and five-minute styles.
It’s chock-full of color photographs and step-by-step directions that even I could understand and follow.
I used the Cinch Detangler + Leave In Conditioner, two tiny elastic bands, some combs and instead of making one braid, I made two. Here’s how it went:
Not too bad, right? My daughter liked them so much that she wore them to school. Yay for I might just get the hang of this hair thing after all!
Now it’s your turn to share. Tell me about a “hair emergency” that either you or your child had.
