Goody hair products testing got us out of a tangle. Raise your hand if you'??ve ever tried to brush your daughter'??s hair and then afterward looked around to see if anyone caught her screams and tears long enough to question your parenting skills.
You would think I was ripping out my daughter'??s hair ever time I attack that big snarl that greets us every morning in the back of her head. Oh wait. I guess I sort of am ripping her hair out. By the looks of the brush afterwards, that might just be the case. My bad. Same goes for when I grab that hair tie from her ponytail and give it a good yank. It'??s not that I'??m uber-rough. It'??s just that beauty hurts, people. Looking good = paying a price.
So when I brush her hair now, it's "Oh goody" time. I mean it literally. Oh Goody'??s new Ouchless elastics and brushes. Sure, they'??ve been around forever. But these new elastics are made with Smart Stretch Core for longer life. This means no more elastics that stretch out to resemble bracelets. The brushes are sleeker and boast a tangle-free cushion, so you can glide it through your little one'??s hair without someone calling the authorities afterward.
The elastics even have fun colors (along with collection names like Rockstar for bright neons and My Skinny Jeans for denims), while the brushes come in different shapes and sizes.
So now beauty doesn'??t have to hurt. She can stay lovely and smiling. Until she discovers heels. Can'??t help you with that one, sweetheart.
Goody'??s Ouchless Brushes ($6.49-$8.29) and Elastics ($4.50-$7.99) are available at Target, Walgreens and CVS.
