Kaia has entered the stage where she is up for almost anything. She loves exploring, adventuring, and generally anything that requires a bath afterwards. I wish she had the energy she did – she attacks every single day with the kind of enthusiastic energy that I would love to bottle, and her crazy, silly joy is seriously amazing to watch. I think this is my favorite stage of childhood, the in-between of baby and big kid, and even though she does throw a tantrum here and there, this girl is loving life. But, with that awesome activity and adventure comes a lot of mess. I’m talking skinned knees, ratty hair, dirt in the craziest places messes. The kind that comes from exploring and testing the limits of toddlerhood.
She has long hair which adds to the problem, because if I don’t do something with it or put it up in some way then by lunch time she looks a little like Pig-Pen from Charlie Brown. Needless to say I need a regimen to manage the issue before her adorable curls reach the tangled point of no return, and that’s where JOHNSON’S® comes in because baby hair is delicate and needs special care that adult products just can’t bring.
To keep her hair shiny and tangle free, I have a three step process that starts at bath time. First, I wash her hair with JOHNSON’S® shampoo & conditioner for thick/curly hair because not only is it gentle, but it unlocks even stubborn knots and tangles. Second, I nourish it with JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® leave-in conditioner which is a lightweight formula that leaves hair shiny and comb-friendly.
M third step is done between washes as a refresher when I can’t giver her a shampoo, and that is when I spritz on JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® detangling spray. It takes her hair from messy to super soft and shiny almost instantly. I love that I can use it on wet or dry hair too.
Since her hair is pretty long, I also like to pull it back into braids to save her from having a sticky, tangly mess. I can’t do anything too fancy because neither of us would have fun in the process, but she loves getting her hair braided as long as I do it quickly. She is a squirmer, so I usually let her play with my phone or a tablet while I’m doing anything to her hair.
And then when I’m done she has a set of adorable braids…which she messes up by the end of the day in true toddler fashion and we start the process all over again.
