It's 10-to-school-run time. I have already spent half and hour
And so it begins...The histrionics from hair brushing are worthy of an Oscar each morning - or at least loud enough to alert Social Services. We finally leave the house late for nursery, red-faced, angry and sweaty - that's both of us. Again.
Seriously, I have no idea what she does at night to wake up with matted dreadlocks. I've tried plaiting it at night, but apparently it's uncomfortable and she can't lie on it. We've tried so many different products and sprays but my daughter can find a fatal flaw in each and every one of them: smells funny/don't like the colour of the bottle/makes her cough/doesn't work/doesn't like the picture on the label...Jeez!
Finally, we may have hit upon the solution. DGJ Organics kids range seems to tick all the boxes for her, and from my point of view is great because they use certified organic ingredients and no harmful parabens or SLS.
The Wild n' Crazy Watermelon Shampoo is my favourite - it smells delicious and has a detangling effect. This makes life so so much easier. For days when we're not washing her hair, we use a spritz of the Watermelon Detangling spray to lessen the screams.
The DGJ Organics Wild 'n' Crazy hair range is available from Waitrose but I have a set of 3 products to give away. The lucky winner will get the 2 products shown above, plus the delicious smelling banana and berry shampoo.
