Hair Gel… for babies!

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 14 - 2010

Leila has my mother’s hair.  It’s blonde, fine and very very floaty.  It kinda skims the top of her head, resting about an inch above the scalp in thick swathes of unstylable defiance.  If I brush it around the shape of her crown, it springs back…. floating, floating… always floating.

Of course, it’s beautiful… and I love it.  It’s getting long now and I lie with her twirling it gently around my fingers whilst she simultaneously grabs handfuls of mine, a look of frantic curiosity on her face.

I could deploy the old tried and tested method of spitting on my hands before swiping my palms over her barnet… but really… that’s just disgusting isn’t it?  She may be small and kinda stupid but that’s no justification for styling her with gob.

Enter Original Sprout, who make an entire line of Children’s styling saviours from Curl Calmer to Styling Balm.  I’ve got my eye on the Children’s Hair Gel.

They say:

Loved by Babies & Up, our Ultra Clean & Light Baby Hair Gel is made of nourishing emollients & gentle botanicals, smoothing frizzies, taming flyaways & supporting curls softly. Thermal Protectants keeps hair safe from styling & enviromental aggressors.

There’ll be no “styling aggressors” in this nursery *puts the straighteners down* but this has gotta be better than spit right?

And just ’cause this is about the only day in the year I can like TOTALLY get away with it:

    First of all, your baby is kinda awesome as are you. First she is so gorgeous and so cute and smiley!

    Second, you had me at small and kinda stupid. I think I might just want to procreate this very second to have my own small and kinda stupid person to style with this hairgel.

    That was the cutest video ever! she kept wanting to give you kisses!

    i would make sure that none of the ingredients are harmful before using it on your daughter, i can just imagine a child putting there hands in there hair while the gel is still wet and than eating the gel

    Russel Bran,d, Jennifer? You’ve got some stylish baby there ;)

    The video is so cute, Charlotte. And I, too, loved the “small and kinda stupid” remark. Love it when parents aren’t so bloody precious about their children. Top marks ;)

    Aaaw, she’s gorgeous! :) Her hair is just fine, I love baby hair, it’s so cute. Mine are now 3, 5 and 8 and don’t have baby hair anymore, so I’d just enjoy it while it lasts. ;)
