My boys may still be quite young, but they both have a distinct fashion sense already. Benjamin insists on trying on new outfits as soon as he gets them and Zackary loves nothing better than picking out some of his favourite clothes, getting his hair spiked up and heading out the door in style.
When the time comes to slick up his hair, he used to use his dad’s hair gel but recently he got the chance to rock his style with his own special products thanks to a new line of hair care designed especially for boys. Monkey Brains hair care is a fun-loving line of hair gels, shampoos and other hair care products that will have any boy’s ‘do looking fabulous. I was thrilled when I got the chance to review a few of the products for myself.
I received the Crazy Sticky Hair Gel and the Psycho Sticky Hair Glue to review. The bottles are a large part of the appeal of the Monkey Brains products. They boast a fun, bright yellow colour and a banana shape as well as great colourful graphics. Zackary was delighted as soon as he saw the bottles and he couldn’t wait for the next day so that he could get his hair spiked for pre-Kindergarten.
The following morning, my husband took a dollop of Crazy Sticky Hair Gel and used it to create some fun spikes in my son’s hair. Zackary loved his new look and he got so many compliments from friends and teachers when he went to school that day!
The class ends just before lunch and by about mid-afternoon, Zackary’s hair had started to lose its hold a bit. If he was at school for the full day, I’m sure that his hair would have lasted through the school hours perfectly, making this gel great for everyday use that has long-lasting hold without going overboard.
For days when a style needs to last from early morning until late at night, however, the Psycho Sticky Hair Glue was definitely the way to go. When Zackary accepted the job of Ring Bearer at my brother’s wedding, I knew that I would need maximum hold to make sure his style lasted through the ceremony and the reception afterwards. So that morning, my husband styled Zackary’s hair with a generous amount of the “glue.”
Zackary’s hair looked great, but best of all, the style lasted all day long and when he finally fell asleep at about eleven that night, his hair still looked fabulous. Now that’s lasting power!
In addition to effective formulas, both of the hair gel products had a great smell and a flake-free formula that I really adored. And when the time came to wash the gel out of my son’s hair, one quick shampoo effectively dissolved the formula and left his hair squeaky-clean!
I really loved the Monkey Brains products we received and so did my son. He doesn’t worry about using his Dad’s gel anymore. Instead, he grabs his very own bottle of Monkey Brains! If you have a boy that loves getting creative with his hair, you’ll love Monkey Brains hair care. With kid-friendly appeal and fabulous effectiveness, your boys will be looking great in no time!
