One thing that I never expected was to be the mother of one, much less two girls. For those who know me, I am not the girly girl.
Through high school, I wore shorts and sweats, only beat out by the occasional bathing suit, as I was on the swim team. One year, in middle school, I wore shorts and a t-shirt every.single.day. Rain or shine. Fashionable for the times, I sported the loud color blocking style of hip hop 1990s cross colors, not the girls version, it was boys all.the.way.
I didn’t even start to do my own hair until 13, when my mother bluntly told me that I had to figure it out for myself. Until recently, like within the last year, my standard hair style was a ponytail.
But my girls are the girliest of them all. The daily clothing request is “Can I wear a dress please?” My yesses are only mitigated by park play.
Oh, The Hair
With the clothes come the hair. There’s a lot of it between the three of us. I know that natural is the way to go for them. I’ve been “natural” since 2004, but only in the past few years, I’ve noticed products on the market that will protect and help grow my hair. The little that I’ve learned about my hair is that chemicals are the worst thing for them.
Cantu Beauty is available at places I shop normally like Sally’s Beauty Supply, Target and Wal-Mart but they’re free of all the harsh chemicals and parabens that weigh down my hair and just damage it in general. Not to mention, the products smell so good.
This Mother’s Day, take advantage of this amazing #MommyAndMe Cantu Beauty prize pack valued at more than $100 with plenty of hair products to keep you and your little mini-me looking picture perfect. This prize pack has full-size bottles of the new Cantu Care for Kids product line and Cantu for Natural Hair products.
With the Cantu Care for Kids line, each product has a blend of shea butter, coconut oil and honey without mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, silicones, phthalates, gluten, paraffin, PABA or DEA. One of my fellow Mochas told me without asking that she loves the Conditioning Detangler for tenderheaded 4 year old. The prize pack will include the Tear-Free Nourishing Shampoo, Nourishing Conditioner, Conditioning Detangler, Curling Cream, Styling Custard and Leave-In Conditioner.
The prize from the adult line are just as nice. They include the Cantu for Natural Hair Sulfate-Free Cleaning Cream Shampoo, Sulfate-Free Hydrating Cream Conditioner, Coil Calm Detangler, Coconut Curling Cream, Define & Shine Custard and Leave-In Conditioning Cream.
