Summer Ponytail Styles Call for Goody Ouchless

This has been a ponytail summer.

Between swim team, camp, and the urge to grow their hair really, really long, this has been the summer of the ponytail.

Keeping hair tied up has been essential for so many reasons:

It's soooo much easier to get those swim caps on when hair is tied up

Hair is a little less knotty after swimming in the pool with a ponytail

Putting hair up and under a cap can help keep ticks off kids

It keeps the girls cooler during hot summer days spent outside

The only issue with having to do so many pony tails is the 'ouch' factor.

I hear "OUCH" when I brush their hair. I hear "OUCH" when I'm putting the elastics in, and I hear it when I'm taking them out...especially when their hair is wet.

Thankfully Goody approached me and offered to let me test drive their newest line of 'ouchless' hair bands and brush!

Keep in mind - just like the TwoferMom logo shows, I have one with curly hair, and one with curly hair and one with straight hair so we are giving the Goody products a good all-around test. With BOTH hair types I noticed less snagging, less wincing, and yes, less "OUCH!" with the Goody Ouchless brush.

We were swimming yesterday so the real test was taking the Goody Ouchless elastics out of wet, knotted hair. This usually has El in tears. As she was getting ready to shower I heard her say, "These really are ouchless mom!" as she pulled the elastic out of her hair.

Where to find Goody Ouchless

Be sure to follow @GoodyHair on Twitter, and take part in their styling discussion on the Goody Facebook page August 23-25th.

You can purchase Goody Ouchless on Amazon , at Walmart and Target stores, and through other major online retailers.

WIN a Goody Ouchless Brush and 2 packs of Ouchless Elastics right here!

  • Simply leave me a comment telling me how your beaut routine needs less "ouch".
  • For an extra entry, post a link to this blog entry on Facebook or Twitter (then leave a separate comment with a link to your post).

I'll run this giveaway for 2 weeks (ends August 29th) and winner will be notified via email. Open to all US and Canada residents 18 and over. Product provided by Goody.

Power to the ponytail!

My daughter hates having her hair brushed because it is often very tangled. This Ouchless brand would be perfect for her!

August 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

I can feel my hair thinning out a bit, I definitely don't want anymore ouches!

Here's the link to my Twitter post (I think)!/tfcoronado.

I tend to use scrunches to reduce ouchies....LOL

August 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMia

I would love less ouch when I brush my hair. My hair right now is way too long and gets tangled all the time.

My daughter is growing her hair out to donate to locks-for-love, so we're trying to be very gentle with it and keep it in good condition. Playing outside, swimming in the pool, and driving around with the top down reeks havoc on her hair, making it a tangled mess. Combing through that every day definitely brings out the ‘Ouch!’ . Love the ouchless hair bands but haven't seen the brush. I'll look for it. Thanks!

August 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

If this ouchless brush can help me get a comb thru my daughter's rats nest...I'll be a believer! Plus, my other daughter's brush broke and she won't let me replace it. It's fun finding teeth combs all through the house and in her hair. I could really use a new brush. :)

August 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMonica

My grandaughter could sure use this...................she is a big crybaby when it comes to brushing her hair

August 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercarole

Hello, four girls - I could really use this!

August 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarmen

I definitely need to work on getting better with curly hair

i could definitely use ouchless elastics for while my hair is pulled back at the gym. it gets sweaty and messy and generally finds a way to tangle around my elastic by the time i hit the showers.

August 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen P

I would love to win this! My hair gets so tangled and being a busy mommy this would help me!

August 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBree
