Some girl friends and I were chuckling when we took our kids out for a beach day recently. Why? Well, Summer is the time for light, flowy dresses, sleeveless dresses, tank tops, shorts, sandals, pedicures, and gorgeous tresses that look fabulous cascading down your shoulders as you saunter along the beach. Am I right?
We giggled at the sometimes not so glamorous aspect of being busy working moms. Sure, we take the time to take care of ourselves. We go for our style and trims at the hairdresser’s. We keep active and eat healthy. If we’re lucky, there may be a trip to the spa once in a blue moon. However we try to look and feel our best, sometimes things may go awry…like those “Oh, no!” hair moments!
Every woman’s got an “Oh, no!” hair moment
You know what I’m talking about. Imagine being at the beach and noticing that spot on your leg you missed while shaving or *gasp* forgetting to shave *ahem* your bikini line! What about attending a beautiful Summer wedding and posing for a group photo with a picturesque background that screams “this is the perfect Summer wedding!”…and noticing your perfectly coiffed hair is uncooperative, droopy, limp or ruined from the humidity?
My friend and I have beach hair all Summer long, but one of my other friends has naturally wavy and extremely uncooperative hair when humidity hits. She tells me when there’s humidity, her hair has a mind and life of its own! There’s no taming those tresses! Then I had her try Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Enhancer Spray and Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Creme Pomade.
The 7-in-1 wave enhancer spray allows for maximum styling so you can achieve that tousled, beach hair look with ease! After a quick spray, just apply the crème pomade for genius curl control, leaving hair soft, touchable and beautifully defined for up to 24 hours.
After being put to the test, the wave enhancer and creme pomade were given the two thumbs up.
No more Summer hair woes
Back to the story my friends and I were laughing about on the beach. Don’t worry…I was granted permission to post this story, provided that I do not divulge my friend’s name. We were talking about how this particular day was the first time we had gone for an actual swim. It was an extremely long Winter (or so it seemed) and it took Summer a long time to warm up. One of my frienda said she hadn’t shaved her legs all Winter and joked that it was to keep her warm in the cold Winter months! When Summer rolled along and beach time hit, she forgot that she hadn’t shaved her legs, pits, etc. Once at the beach, she became aware of this and now the running joke is that in the Winter she’s a bear. It seemed funny at the time. At least it as just us and the kids. The kids were playing in the sand and it was just four of of us joking around.
This said, an item I think is handy is the Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace. Thinking about your silky smooth legs as you walk on the beach, only to notice you’ve missed a spot? Have no fear. The Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace comes ready to travel with its own portable compact case and Venus Embrace blade cartridge. This mini razor can be tossed in your beach bag, purse, gym bag or suitcase. Also, there’s no need for shave gel. Just a little water, and you’re good to go.
