Best of Beauty: Save your Kids from Pool Hair

This summer, my kids are in swim camp every day. And their hair is quickly turning to straw.
Chlorine is murder on hair – my kids hair turns into a giant, dry, tangled mess. Enter Fairy Tales to save the day! I’ve been using Fairy Tales hair care products ever since we had a run-in with lice last fall. While they’ve are very well known for their gentle lice shampoos and repellants for kids, the rest of their line is awesome!

The Lifeguard Clarifying Shampoo and Lemon-Aid Conditioner are fantastic for summer, undoing days in the sun, dips in the salty ocean, and time in the chlorinated pool. I recommend leaving the conditioner on for a few minutes to let it soak in all that moisture. My children love the yummy, citrus-y scents and all the products are free of parabens and sulfates! (I highly recommend it for grown up hair too! I use it whenever we hit the pool at the Y!)

    Are these sold locally (that you know of) or do you order from their site? My girls have the tangly straw hair you speak of, 🙂

  2. We use this every day. It really works and saves the tangle battles at night.
