mothers-day-with-cohenMy entire world changed when little Cohen came into our lives. It’s been such a sweet experience seeing him grow and develop, changing so fast! I sometimes wish there was a way to slow it all down but it only gets better and better with each passing day. I love being his mom, being his #1, day in and day out and I wouldn’t change it. me-and-cohen-new-orleans With that of course, some days getting ready means throwing on a favorite sweatshirt and brushing my teeth. Other days, it means letting him play in my makeup drawers to catch a few minutes to apply some makeup. Motherhood can be a unique personal transformation. Sometimes I feel like a complete baggy-eyed zombie and other times I feel unexpectedly more feminine and womanly than I ever have before. cohen-hat-hawaii Most of the time I would rather forego applying makeup and curling my hair in order to spend more time with Cohen. That being said, it’s still very important for us as mother’s to continue to take care of ourselves. I love doing everything with Cohen and that even means when I need to get ready for the day or take an evening bath. I love playing in the tub while washing away the day and he loves having all of my attention just to himself. cohen-me-hawaii-hotel Taking care of my hair is a vital component to one of my daily passions, creating and providing hair tutorials here on Missy Sue. Being a ‘hair blogger’ I am always on the hunt for that miracle product. Moisturizing, hydrating, invigorating, the holy grail of products. When I discovered Garnier® Whole Blends™ I was so pleased to discover how perfect it was for my beauty routine. It helps keep my hair in the best condition it can be so I feel confident knowing that I can help provide for my family and still feel beautiful everyday. how-to-curl-your-hairSince my hair has been so dry and frizzy lately, thanks to the weather here in Mississippi, I’ve started using the Garnier® Whole Blends™ Smoothing line with Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter extracts. I could immediately tell how much my hair had improved, it was hydrated and smelled so great. On days when I am too busy to style my hair I love letting it air dry. With these products I noticed that after using the shampoo and conditioner, my hair would dry in nice, soft waves because it was so hydrated. Exactly what I have been looking for! garnier-whole-blends

Whole Blends™ offers great haircare that is both gentle and nourishing and I am a big fan of the line from Garnier®. They design hair care, skincare, and even hair color that really works so I can focus more on time with Cohen and not have to worry about the little things when it comes to my daily beauty routine.

Being a new mom means I don’t get a lot of time to myself. With all the diaper changes, feedings, baths, and endless playing that comes with a baby, finding a few minutes to myself is always tricky. I love getting ready though and having my hair done so finding those few extra minutes to pamper myself is very important. My hair endures a lot with all of the curling, blow drying, and updos that I put it through so taking care of it is my number one priority. Because of that, I am always looking for that holy grail product that will keep my hair healthy, shiny, and strong.

hair-care-nexxus-costco-1When I discovered Nexxus Oil Infinite Shampoo and Conditioner I really noticed a difference in my hair. It felt stronger, less frizzy, and more vibrant in color. The shampoo is so moisturizing and great for cleaning out the daily products that I use while leaving it shiny and frizz-free.  With the look of a silky lotion, this shampoo doesn’t strip my hair of shine or softness. It’s perfect for my fine hair too because despite being so moisturizing it doesn’t weight it down or leave it feeling greasy.

hair-care-nexxus-costco-2I love the conditioner just as much because it’s infused with the necessary oils to make my hair luminous and healthy; two things I always look for in a great conditioner. It makes my hair so soft and shiny that it’s so much easier to style which is a definite must for me. Unlike a lot of conditioners that cover the hair with a heavy film, this one tames my frizz while boosting shine without leaving behind any gunky buildup.  hair-care-nexxus-costco-6

A shampoo and conditioner that doesn’t leave behind a greasy buildup means I can stretch my hair washings an extra day or two which of course means I can spend that extra time playing with Cohen. A beauty routine that is both efficient and quick is more important now than ever before with him here. He craves my constant attention and being able to be there for him everyday is my new number one priority. Nexxus from Costco gives me the chance to not only spend more time with my baby but still look fresh and fabulous every single day.  It’s easily become a necessary basic in my beauty repertoire.
