Safe Kid Hair Care with SoCozy

When Raymond turned two and we(he) started wanting to “style”his hair we tried to find an option available that would be safe, gentle, and allergy-free. Until Raymond was diagnosed with food allergies at Age One, I never knew how many products out there contained triggers like gluten, tree-nuts, and peanuts. You would be quite alarmed to find out how many things peanuts are in… seriously, my jaw DROPPED wide open when I realized our entire pantry, skincare routine, bath routine, AND sunscreen needed to be thrown out and replaced.

Peanuts are even in dish soap and laundry detergent.

SoCozy is a line of salon formulas for the unique hair needs of kids between the ages of 2 and 12 years old.

NO NASTIES

SoCozy products are non-toxic and made without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, propylene

glycol, gluten, wheat or nuts.

That’s right. My little worrying heart no longer has anything to fear. Raymond gets to style his hair. “All by myself!” as he likes to say every morning.

Up first on the styling challenge was the SoCozy behave styling cream-with a soft hold in pear-fection. After climbing up on the stool I showed Raymond just how much he should use of the cream. Raymond has really nice, thick hair thanks to his dad… oh how I do wish I had some of that extra volume.

Learning How Much Product to Use

He quickly got the hang of doing it, “All by himself,” and loved the extra independence. After about two minutes of smoothing the cream over his locks-he is patient and thorough-I used my fingers to gently brush through his hair.

The behave styling cream ended up being my favorite. I loved the soft hold and how shiny it looked in his hair. The style held throughout the day. Color me impressed.

The next product we used was the behave styling gel with a medium hold in trop-o-fish. Soccer Camp is this week and we figured trying out his crazy soccer hair style would be a perfect match with the styling gel.

We were right.

Raymond took his sweet time making a Mohawk. And yes the behave gel even conquered his thick, thick hair and landed him with a team full of high-fives at camp! Crazy Hair and Soccer go hand and hand, if you didn’t know.

I see many crazy hairstyles in our future with Mr. Independent. Fostering creativity for the win!

SoCozy-Styling-Mousse

The behave styling mousse with a medium hold in peachy-keen was our last styling tool we tried. Raymond loved learning how to correctly pump the mousse out and the smell was divine. His hair was shinier and firmer than with the other two options and perfect for a quick no mess or fuss style.

Emma Marie has long hair, five times the length that Raymond had at this age. So the learning curve has been mighty fierce with figuring out just how to treat those lovely tangles. She gets tangles after a shower, before her hair is dried AND wakes up with knotted-tresses from a night full of curling her hair around her fingers.

Like mother, like daughter apparently.

Morning Hair Routine

Every morning I now can count on the cinch detangler to make our day start off tear free. It’s kind of a big deal. I know you other parent’s know what I’m talking about. Starting out our day in a fight with the brush makes for a rough morning.

I simply apply two squirts into her hair and comb through with my fingers.

Tear Free Mornings

Now Emma Marie doesn’t run and hide when I tell her we have to get ready in the morning.

PLUS we end our days easily with the added benefit that the cinch detangler in fruity-tutti is also a leave-in conditioner that makes for a smooth transition from shower to bed.

Now that preschool is upon us it will be nice to have a little preparation AND prevention on our side.  Hopefully I don’t need to use these-BUT I am glad that I have a safe option should a kid at preschool become infected with the nasty guys.

Our bathrooms smell incdreibly sweet now that SoCozy has entered our life.  Emma Marie’s favorite scent of the squeaky clean line is the guav-o-rama, while Raymond likes the mango-go.  I love how healthy their hair feels and that they can get squeaky clean after a day full of messy memories.  Check out SoCozy’s Values and then grab a coupon(or two) and head to Target!  SoCozy is now at our FAVORITE store.  Mom WIN!

The coupon can be used TWICE… so grab two SoCozy Products on your trip to Target… not like you need a reason to go to Target… OR maybe that’s just me. Thankful that my favorite place to shop now has options for my growing family. It’s hard to find products that are truly good for our kids, especially when you consider food-allergies.
