We’ve been lucky enough to be road-testing Max & Nancy’s natural and organic dry shampoo for children for the last couple of weeks and are ready to share our experience with you, having put it through its’ paces!
Darcey has a very busy schedule both during the week and at the weekend so Hairydust particularly appealed to me as an on-the-go solution to some of our messier adventures. Darcey has a bath every night and we always wash her hair, but she’s a bit of a wriggler through the night and can wake up very sweaty. For the last couple of weeks I’ve been shaking a few sprinkles of Hairydust into her hair each morning and it has made a great improvement to the freshness of her hair each day. She finds it quite funny being ‘snowed’ on and I’ve been pretending to tickle her whilst ‘ruffling’ it in, as the box instructs! This went down especially well.
One of my favourite times for using Hairydust is in the afternoon, after our swimming lessons. Darcey swims on a Saturday morning and is always left with a chlorine smell in her hair. After her hair has dried out, I sprinkle Hairydust on and I’ve found that smell is eliminated. It’s really travel-sized too so doesn’t take up much room in the changing bag which is great.
She also goes to nursery from 7.30-6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Judging by the wide variety of artwork, baking and multiple changes of clothes I collect in her bag, I imagine her days at nursery are pretty jam-packed (sometimes literally, depending on what’s on the menu). Dropping Hairydust into the nursery bag has proved invaluable so that I can quickly freshen her up before bringing her home or going for tea at a friend’s. The convenience of the product is superb.
Darcey’s favourite thing about Hairydust is the packaging. I think it’s a perfect balance between boutique-elegance and being child-friendly. The outside is very classy, in muted tones but when you open the box the inside is filled with a colourful princess and knight and an even more enticing competition.
Unfortunately I ripped the box when dismantling it as the adhesive is so sticky but I imagine children slightly older than Darcey would absolutely love to engage with the product like this.
Hairydust has a lovely, gentle scent and I really liked that it was produced in the UK and is natural and organic. I spend a long time making sure Darcey’s diet is as healthy as possible so I like to keep other products we use in the same vein too. We’ll be continuing to pack Hairydust in our swim bag from now on, it’s fast become a staple of our routine!
