Sometimes I need a filter between my brain and my mouth.
This is not the way to get one.

Hair Wars (Scunci Girl Giveaway)

Every parent has one task that they dread. And anyone who denies that fact, clearly has a nanny.

It could be cleaning poo-splosions, it could be cleaning vomit - hell, it could be the task of WEARING vomit that makes you want to claw your eyes out.

For me, it's hair.

Miss 4 is just as unimpressed as I am.

No amount of cajoling, bribery, soothing sounds of the blue whale will make her sit still. Or stop screaming. I've tried the flip side - saying that I'll shave her bald like her Uncle M, or I'll never brush her hair again and she'll get a giant knot and rats will move in.

Nope, nothing doing.

I used every detangling spray known to man, every detangling shampoo, conditioner, balm, witchdoctor potion and, while they make the process a little easier, it still isn't enough to stop the dramatics entirely.

The most successful combination I've found is a good quality shampoo and conditioner, a fantastic detangling comb, a sturdy paddle brush, and a quality detangling spray. To keep it all together, some tight braiding with snagless hair ties.

With the volume of hair ties that get lost along the way - and the number of hair ties that claimed they were snagless, but the fact that I had to cut them out of Miss 4's hair made me think they were lying - I'm never keen to spend a fortune on them. But at the same time, you want to know you're using something that won't snap at the first sign of some tension.

Enter the battle zone - Scunci Girl hair accessories!

I've used Scunci for quite some time now, and I've always been happy with the cost and the quality. Their snagless hair ties are exactly that - I've never had to carve a Scunci hair tie out of a screaming child's hair.
