Hair. Probably something I either over obsess with till I get every one of my curls perfect, or I literally end up sticking it into a greasy topknot on top of my head haha!! The topknot look unfortunately is normally the more regular “do” because mum life can get way too busy... so you gotta cut back somewhere right?! ;)
Either way, greasy or not, our hair is part of our identity and it’s a way of expressing ourselves, through colour, style and length. So it’s really important we treat and condition it the best we can to keep it healthy and strong no matter what crazy styles or colours we put it through! Being a super girly girl and having grown up dancing, it’s meant I’ve learnt a fair few hairstyles over the years. Of which, I cannot wait to try out on Maddie (once her hair’s grown a bit more obviously!) For now the most I can do is a rather adorable pigtail, which on a bad day sometimes make her look like she has a little antennae poking up on the top of her head... still cute though!! But I cannot wait till I’m able to braid her hair! I absolutely love doing French plaits!
At our last Johnson’s Baby Ambassadors day, we looked a little closer at the different types of hair we all have, hairstyles we can try on our kids and the various Johnson’s Baby haircare ranges. I was actually shocked at how many different ranges of baby shampoos they have and after trying them out, I’ve definitely discovered a few new favourites!!

Washing little ones hair can sometimes be a bit of a battle, and I will admit I do end up having to wash Maddie’s hair most nights because she ALWAYS seems to get food in her hair despite being as careful as possible!
Both of the 3-step routine ranges include a shampoo, conditioner and then a detangling/leave in conditioning spray. It sounds stupid, but I never even thought to condition Maddie’s little head of hair already? I don’t know why, but it just never crossed my mind! Making this change and including it in our routine is definitely the best decision I made though! I’ve been now conditioning Maddie’s hair for a month and I can absolutely tell the difference! Her hair is more shiny, super soft, glossy and most importantly it doesn’t tangle anywhere near as much as it used to! But it if does... a few sprays of Johnson’s Baby No More Tangles spray and we are good to go! Now I condition Maddie’s hair properly
there’s way less pulling which makes it a much more pleasant experience for Maddie AND myself when brushing her hair!

Luckily for me, Maddie seems to be a natural water baby and absolutely LOVES bath time or going swimming. So washing her hair has never really been too difficult. But I can tell as she’s getting more independent and wanting to try to do more things on her own, this might become more of a challenge and she’ll probably want to try and take over from me!! I’ve always found the quickest and easiest way to wash her hair is by distracting her with lots of bath toys!! Maddie’s favourites are definitely any squirty toys! I think this is what I might have to do going forward and use the art of distraction through toys & music to make washing her hair a smooth operation!!
I hope you all found this post useful, and I would definitely recommend the Shiny Drops range! It has argan oil in it which I LOVE, I’ve even used it on my hair occasionally and it feels and smells amazing!!
Lots of love, Bethany x
