What with our holiday, illnesses galore and then Easter and more illness I’m not actually sure I got around to telling you about our new Ambassador role.
A while back the Tots100 teamed with H&A to search for their first brand Ambassadors, we wrote a post (you can read it here) to apply and a short while after heard that we were chosen to join the team. My two are water babies and love their baths – in fact for the past few days they have been asking for one in the morning and one at night, so were very pleased and happy to try out bath products.
I’m sure it was this picture which helped secure our place – how cute is Harry and don’t we all have picture’s like this?
Or perhaps it was this one – the team must really like a challenge!
Emmy was maybe not so keen when she found out she was testing shampoo as she currently hates having her hair washed however that soon changed when she saw the packaging – I mean is there a 4 year old out there who doesn’t like Ariel?
We were sent the Ariel Conditioning Shampoo and a Detangler for Emmy while Harry received a Ben10 Conditioning Shampoo – not that he would have minded Ariel as at 18 months he is far more interested in what toys are in the bath and playing with his toes.
These all retail at £2 and are available at Tesco and Wilkinson.
The nice thing about the shampoo’s is that they stand up on the squeezy end which means all the contents falls to the bottom so no struggling to get the last drops out of the bottom when you are near the end and they are actually a lot harder to squeeze than most shampoo’s. This means that you won’t accidently use too much by mistake.
The shampoo lathers well on the hair and is easy to rinse too.
As I said before Emmy hates having her hair washed so here are my top tips for hair washing:
Have a clean flannel to hand which your child can hold over their eyes
Have all shampoos, conditioners and towels ready and to hand
Have a wide toothed comb ready to help brush the shampoo and conditioner through the hair to the ends
Use clean warm water to rinse (using the bath water will leave their hair a little greesy and all shampoo won’t wash out properly
Teach your child to look up at the ceiling or in our case the patterned tiles on our wall when you are hair washing
Keep talking to them and keep it fun
Sing a song – we sing “It’s raining it’s pouring” when we hair wash
Rinse well – make sure all shampoo and conditioner is removed to avoid sore or itchy heads
Towel dry well when you get out of the bath
Once I have towel dried Emmy’s hair I use the spray conditioner to help leave it tangle free and it is great to spray on in the mornings to help loosen her bedtime tangles, and stops her moaning when I brush her hair.
Adding the conditioning spray helps to turn Emmy’s bird’s nest into something far more manageable.
