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.
