Earlier today I was happily asleep but got an urgent wake up from Tessa. She reminded me that I promised her to make scrambled eggs for breakfast last night and to fix her hair with her bangs swept to the side. It occurred to me that I have trained her well and she has become a fashionista or as she likes to call herself “style lady.’ (Her made up super hero who wears sparkly shoes and big accessories.) Last week it was a blue fur vest and a pink flower ring. This week the winner is two little green bows and her hello kitty necklace. She always keeps me wondering what’s next.
Here she is with her favorite sparkly boots and ballet flats with a few of her favorite accessories.
I get asked frequently about what I used on her for hair and bath products since I lean toward eco-friendly and organic ingredients when it comes to my personal care so I thought I would mention 3 products that she and I both love on the daily.
- Bayberry Organic Leave-In Detangler: Although Tessa was blessed with my fine hair it can get a bit knotted and tangled overnight during sleep. I’m not a fan of strong smelling hair products or alcohol heavy ingredient lists especially for my daughter. This spray Detangler is perfect for a quick morning when there’s minimal time to get out the door; it’s made without Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Artificial Fragrances or Artificial Dyes which gives it my personal mommy stamp of approval. There’s a lovely blend of organic oils and plant based ingredients that I feel confident in using on my little girl.
- J R Watkins Body Butter: This time of year especially, dry patches and itchy skin happen on repeat which means her regular lotion doesn’t cut it for the coming months. This body butter comes in many scents (the current one she’s using is Coconut Milk & Honey) that are not too strong. Since this is a rich creamy texture, a very small amount is needed to work its magic and its made with 98.9% natural ingredients including cocoa butter, coconut oil, Shea butter and aloe.
- Burt’s Bee’s Baby Bee Shampoo and Wash: I usually pick up the fragrance free version of this mild bath product. Instead of moisture stripping sulfates that can be very irritating on little bodies, this is made with gentle plant based foaming agents that leave her skin feeling soft. It’s sold in different sizes from travel to the jumbo size with a pump making it a pretty convenient choice for mom’s looking for a versatile bath care option.
