School starts this week!! For my four sweet children, like many of yours, returning to school means we all must be out the door at 8 a.m. sharp with backpacks and lunches packed, teeth brushed, and presentable clothes and for my only daughter, presentable hair.
However, this summer the sun and chlorine have taken a toll on her hair to the point where she insisted she liked how it looked “curly” when she didn’t brush it. We twirled buns and twisted ponytails out of the tangled mess, plopped a headband on top and kept moving through our busy summer days. I knew this was not going to fly for school mornings but milked summer for all it was worth.
This lovely package came not a moment too soon and I was so excited to open it!!
But I did not, because Little Miss Sunshine could do that herself too. This was 100% all hers, no mom needed and for this category that was a welcome change of pace.
Even the packaging is kid friendly. Two pieces, no staples nor fused seams, no sharp edges, just cardboard backing with plastic cover that slides off.
I received this product for free to review and I was both excited and nervous, this is my first review and I was hoping I would only have good things to say but concerned this adorable brush was up against one tough test subject.
A few weeks prior, Messy Mama Amy had brushed and braided my daughter’s hair at her house with her Smoobee without so much as a peep of complaint but she also had some fancy oil to smooth the tangles. Plus kids are always nicer to adults that are not their parents. Now it was just me, the brush and Little Miss Sunshine with her freshly chlorinated tangled mane after yet another afternoon of swimming, flipping, jumping without a care in the world.
I had a feeling the maker of this product must be a pretty smart lady and likely a mother of daughters. For about $3 an irresistible bag of “bling” can personalize this amazing tool. Little Miss Sunshine has never met a craft she doesn’t love, particularly ones that involve pink and sparkles.
I forgot to get a before photo to show just how crazy her hair started, but I figured I could just give this a shot first and then if it flopped I would level the playing field by at least washing her hair and give the poor Smoobee a fighting chance. Shower averted for yet another day because Little Miss Sunshine jumped right into using her personalized treasure and I still had not touched a bit of it!
Done! If I had more daughters I would have more Smoobees. I received this one free to review but I know what I am getting for the next little girl gift on my list. It is a gift to the whole family. We have no more tears, no more dreading when I can catch her still to make her hair presentable, I just remind her to grab her Smoobee to smooth out her hair and it looks great, I am just thrilled! It is made of solid wood and ceramic so it is high quality and durable, it feels like a special treasure and it showed in the princess like manner my daughter handles it, it is much more than just another hairbrush. School mornings just got a lot easier and with two weeks of summer left the timing was absolutely perfect. Thank you Smoobee!!
