back to school hair

Part of our back to school hair prep is making sure our girls' bathroom is in great shape. That means it's got to have all the supplies the girls are going to need to start the year off right AND that it's organized. Getting organized and having the right supplies, like Vamousse, on hand make for smoother mornings before school.

First, let's talk about getting organized. Since reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, I have a system. My girls on the other hand, do not have a system. Here's how things look when they are left to manage themselves. Clearly we needed a little mom intervention.


How to organize a linen closet or bathroom vanity

  1. Take everything out of the cabinet or closet.
  2. Group items by category. For example, dental products all go together.
  3. Toss what's old and icky
  4. Organize by shelf. Keep things as vertical as possible.

Since we have two girls, each girl gets a shelf for her hair products PLUS a to-go caddy for styling in case she wants to style in her room. Keeping the bathroom organized will help the girls get ready in a flash and thus, get to school on time. I can't blame the girls for being late if I don't give them the ability to start the day off right.

Here’s a recent headline: “Parents warned of super lice as new school year begins.” Yikes. That’s scarier to most moms than a 3-foot spider.

This year, I’m working to stay lice-free by having the right products on-hand. Recently, I was introduced to Vamousse Daily Defense Shampoo. It’s gentle and non-toxic so my kids can use it every time they shampoo. You definitely want to be sure your bathroom is stocked with this. We started using this before camp this summer and will continue through the school year.

I prep lunches, I prep school supplies, and now I’m prepping hair.

If you do get the dreaded lice email, don’t panic. And definitely don’t feel judged. It happens and Vamousse can help. Since lice NEVER happens at a convenient time, prep your bathroom with Vamousse Lice Treatment. Like the shampoo it’s non-toxic, safe and pesticide-free so it works on super lice. And you can get it right at your drugstore.
