Reagan has always been my little shadow; I really think that it has something to do with the fact that we spent so much quality time together her first year as I spent oodles of hours trying to soothe her and stop the screaming. Although the screaming never really stopped, we forged a solid bond. Since the arrival of Sarah, Reagan has stuck next to me even more. When I feed Sarah, she has to feed her baby. When I make dinner, she has to “make” her own special creation to share with our family. When I get ready in the morning, she wants to do everything exactly the way that I do. With the help of the Goody Quikstyle and TangleFix brushes, we’ve been able to create matching momma and daughter hairstyles without any of the typical tears. Holla!
If you’ve never heard of the Goody Quikstyle brush which helps dry your hair much faster than normal or the TangleFix brush which takes the pain of pesky knots away, you’re missing out! What was once a battle with Reagan to brush her hair is now a much anticipated event and both of us couldn’t be happier. I found ours at Walgreens where they’re Buy 1 Get 1 Free with your Walgreens Balance Rewards card. Sweet deal, right?! This deal only lasts through November 1st or while supplies last; go now so you don’t miss out!
Curious as to how to recreate Reagan’s adorable hairstyle? No worries! I’ll walk you through it.
1. Begin with clean hair. Use the Goody Quikstyle brush to help the hair dry more quickly.
2. Spray the front section of the hair with a water bottle. I’ve found this helps so much with the french braiding process.
3. Use the Goody TangleFix brush to create three sections of hair: a smaller section in front for the french braid and two larger sections in the back that will become the two pigtails.
4. Separate the front portion of hair in three sections and begin french braiding towards the ear for approximately 3 to 5 inches, or until you reach the temple area.
5. Once you reach the temple area, bring the braid away from the head and continue braiding the rest of the way down. Secure with an elastic. I used a pink elastic for these pictures but I typically use an elastic that is more Reagan’s hair color so that it blends in.
6. Double check that you’ve created two equal sections of hair in the back and that the line is straight before you move on. Trust me that it’s easier to fix these things now and not later. 😉
7. Take the section of hair that is closes to the front section braid and separate it into three even pieces. Just before you begin creating a standard braid, lay the front section braid on top of the furthermost right section of hair and begin braiding.
8. Continue the braid through to the end of the hair and secure with an elastic. Create a standard braid with the final section of hair.
This is what it should look like when all is said and done. Not bad, right?! Reagan has fallen in love with her special “Anna” hairstyle straight out of Frozen and requests that we make this happen at least once a week right now and when Reagan cooperates long enough for me to secure the hair away from her face for an entire day, who am I to refuse her?
How can I resist this cute face?
My coordinating look is remarkably similar to Reagan’s style, with a few tweaks that make it look more grown up rather than childish. I started by teasing the hair that I would be braiding to give it some volume. After years of trial and error, I’ve found momma’s hair don’t look good flat to her head. I french braided the hair until the temple area again and then continued with a standard braid from there. After securing the braid with an elastic, I pinned the braid underneath a large majority of my hair in the back. I know that some ladies can pull off the braided pigtail look, but I’m just not one of them. This is a nice compromise.
I am so in love with these new brushes and how easy they’ve made my life. The reduction in tears thanks to the TangleFix brush makes it worth its weight in gold to me. If you’d like to learn more about Goody or these awesome products, you can find them here:
