Getting ready with GRIT: 2 boys. 2 very different hairstyles!

This post is sponsored by Great Clips but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I am surrounded by girl moms but I am a boy mom, through and through.  And when they tell me that I am lucky because I don't have to worry about hair in the morning, I can't help but laugh.  Every morning is all about the hair.  Yesterday, it was all over Anthony's favorite comb that Alex got stuck in his curls.   We have multiple combs but this one apparently lifts hair perfectly. It also grabs hair and refuses to let go.  I thought I was going to have to pull out the scissors and we hadn't even gotten to the gel yet.

Our prayers to the hair Gods were answered recently when we discovered GRIT, a new affordable line of hair and body products at Great Clips.  Lucky for us there is one less than 5 minutes away and now we can check in on the mobile app before we even leave the house!  That way we are already on the list when we get there!

Anthony has super thick and straight hair.  Its needs to be perfect and it needs to stay perfect all day.  He used to spend almost the whole morning in front of the mirror making sure that everything is where it's supposed to be and not one hair is out of line.

He prefers the Firm style gel but was quite impressed with the Flexible balm also.  The feel of the balm takes a little getting used to but if you just rub your hands together to get it warmed up first you will be OK! Just a little bit goes a long way.  A light spray of water kicks things off.  Then the gel.  Making sure that his cowlick on the back of his head is put in place with his comb. But getting what he calls his "wave" just right is what really matters.

Alex is the complete opposite. He has a head full of wild curls.  He loves his curls.  Mostly he loves that everyone else loves his curls.  Getting him to stay still long enough to tame them, was always a struggle. Sometimes he likes to skip his regular cuts and let things go crazy.  I don't mind but remind him that he at least has to keep his curls under control.  The easier the better.  Now all we have to do is spray a little water, detangle, work in some GRIT and go. In and out in under 5 minutes!

Boys curly hair style

The Natural style gel keeps his curls together and gathered right on the top of his head.  Its perfect for my laid back little one.  His hair is still touchable and not hard at all.  And when hes being super fancy, a little Firm Style gel on the sides.  I'm always surprised how many people feel the need to just pat his curls when he walks bye.

My favorite product in the new Grit Line are these two gems.  Lets face it.  Boys smell.

GRIT hair and body

The boys are super excited to have a something a little more "manly" smelling in the shower.  I love that it's an all in one. Nice and easy, plus it helps them get in, out and actually clean.  The body refresh is like man febreze!  No joke, it's not overpowering and doesn't create a dust cloud of body spray. One spray will do it!
