Halloween is a blur to me. No, I didn’t eat too much candy. Nor did I drink too much. I slept. I’m that lame, yes.
I had a procedure done on my neck Halloween morning that unbeknownst to me beforehand, would knock me out the remainder of the day. I wouldn’t have minded if it was any ordinary Thursday.. but to knock me off my feet and out of this world on Halloween. Boo hoo. Luckily, my husband photographed the kids in their costumes. Otherwise there would be no proof in my mind that Halloween even happened. I wish I had more photos of the kids in their Halloween costumes but my husband doesn’t use his phone or camera as a 3rd hand like I do and didn’t take as many photographs as I would have.
Madelyn dressed up as a pirate girl. Not just any pirate girl. A sparkly pirate girl. The sparkles weren’t on her costume. They were in her hair and if you have ever experienced the fun that is sparkly hair spray, you know it ends up everywhere else including the face. 🙂 The funny thing is, she wore a bandana on her head so as far as I can tell, you couldn’t really tell she had sparkles in her hair. What little girl will pass up an occasion to spray glittery hair spray in her hair though? Halloween and school Fall Festivals are two such occasions.
Thank goodness Tim, my husband, is a pretty awesome cleaner-upper. He was patient enough to Madelyn her get the sparkles out of her hair after getting home from trick-or-treating.. first sorting the candy of course. There apparently was no way she could go to bed without washing her hair. She would have been inhaling glittery hair spray all night. It’s not too tough to get Madelyn in the shower. She’s a fan of 20 minute showers. You know.. the kind that leave your pores completely clean and detoxified and your fingers looking like raisins.
This might be because she feels like a pampered princess in the shower. I would too if I had such delicious smelling product to wash myself with.
Madelyn’s favorite shampoo and body wash are made by Suave®. She loves the smell.. so do I.. and the lather of Suave Kids 2 in 1 Smoothers Fairy Berry Strawberry Shampoo. Having a name like Fairy Berry Strawberry doesn’t hurt either. 🙂 The combination of this Suave® shampoo and Suave kids’ Soft & Smooth Detangler (twirlin’ Swirlberry scent) proved to be a sanity saver Halloween night. Tim doesn’t have the honor of maintaining Madelyn’s gorgeous blonde locks as often as I do 😉 so he was happy that she offered him tips that night such as “don’t use mom’s conditioner in my hair!” and “spray the purple hair softener stuff in my hair before blow drying it”. I’m glad she thought enough to tell him to use the detangler because I’m afraid she would have lost some hair or shed some tears if she didn’t suggest that he spray it on her hair before blow-drying it. We kid her about the ‘tangle fairies’ visiting her day and night. It seems like every 5 minutes she needs to brush her hair because it gets so tangled.
Suave saved Madelyn from having perma-sparkly hair by making it easy and fun to wash and detangle her hair after a long night out gathering candy. 🙂 Thanks Suave!
I am thankful that Tim and the kids pulled it together and were able to trick-or-treat without me this Halloween. Just kidding… and I’m thankful that Suave helped all of them cope when the fun night of tricks and treats was over and they were left with sticky hands, sparkly hair.. and yummy candy! I’d call that a success!
Madelyn has very fine hair and we have always been able to use and count on Suave Kids’ hair products for her hair. Suave® offers products for the entire family so everyone can look good and feel good everyday! The best part – Suave® products are available at Walmart so you can get the best value locally.
