Take the scare out of Halloween Costume Clean Up

It’s the scariest time of the year! The kids have their eye (and their heart) set on a costume and you’re left to deliver. Picking out the costume may be half the battle, but the other half is nailing the perfect Halloween hairstyle – And undoing it at the end of trick or treating. Panic sets in:
·         How do I give my daughter’s straight hair Little Mermaid-worthy waves?
·         What does she mean she wants an Elsa braid!?
·         There is no way I can wash this hair color out before school on Monday!
If you’ve ever been frightened by similar thoughts, know that Fairy Tales Hair Care is here to save you and your readers (so jump into that superwoman suit, Mom!). Fairy Tales founder Risa Barash has put together a hair tutorial and pro-tips for the costume clean-up – including easy detanglers and natural color-removing shampoos. See below and please let me know if you’re interested in featuring these tips, tricks or treats – I would love to send over a package of products for you.

Step 1: Prepare For Hair Greatness: Before she puts on her costume, wash with Super-Charge Detangling Shampoo to prep the hair and start with a smooth foundation (you’ll want to keep it handy to wash out temporary hair color later, too!). Hair is actually easier to style with after it’s been brushed and is still slightly damp. Get the hair tie handy, and begin your style (for Elsa, follow these 8 easy steps and bravely braid away!).

Step 2: Make It Stay: Ensure her style survives the mad dash from door to door. Once styled, spray strands all over with Rosemary Repel Hair Spray. This all natural formula is lightweight and works to keep the bugs (like lice) away. Make sure there will be no tricks, only treats, when the kids return home – teach them the importance of not swapping hats and crowns with other kids.

Step 3: Costume Clean Up: Wash out the wacky colors and knots with Super-Charge Detangling Conditioner. Work it through the hair using a wide tooth comb to ensure strands are saturated with the gentle cleanser and let it sit for a few minutes before you rinse with cool water. Formulated with natural Keratin extracts to strengthen, smooth and detangle all hair types, wash and repeat as often as needed until hair is calm, frizz-free and moisturized.

My Thoughts

Bathtime is becoming more and more of a struggle. My toddler's hair is getting long, and its thin and fine just like mine. And that means tangles. Lots and lots of tangles. Every time I brush her hair, its a struggle. She screams and cries, and practically throws herself off the changing table. But this isn't going to be a problem anymore thanks to the wonderful hair care products designed especially for winter from Fairy Tales Hair Care. They have shampoo, conditioner, and more that not only leaves hair soft and shiny, they also stop tangles in their tracks and some that help to prevent lice. Plus its made with only all natural ingredients.

We got to try the three products mentioned above and they were all awesome. There were no tangles at all after using the detangling shampoo and the spray hold their hair perfctly. My older kids aren't nearly as worried about getting tangles, but they are particular about their shampoo. If it doesn't have a nice smell, they aren't going to touch it. Luckily, the sweet organic Rosemary and cherry bark, and chamomile is pleasant and relazing. And the combination of these products left my children's hair looking shiny and healthy. The detangler worked wonders on my daughter's fine hair and we have been tangle free since we started using these fantastic products.

You can order the products I reviewed or any of the wonderful products from Fairy Tales Haircare including their lice prevention products, on their website. You can also find great tips and info on head lice prevention. You can also follow them on twitter or become their fan on face book.
