Monkey Brains Review & Giveaway (4/28)

There seems to be hair care lines geared toward babies and toddlers. There is also an over abundance of adult hair care lines. What about the tweens in the middle? Too often they "tweens", ages 8-14, seem to be left out of the hair care market. No tween wants to use baby products, and no parent wants their child using adult "sex in a bottle" hair products. Now there is Monkey Brains, a swinging new collection that allows kids to be kids!

So many kids rock the cool faux hawks, spikes, controlled messiness, and the "Bieber" type flow. Monkey Brains offers a shampoo, conditioner, 2 gels, 2 glues, a pomade, and a hair refresher, all of which allows kids to express themselves and have the hairstyle they want while having fun doing it.

I also have to mention that Monkey Brains recently sponsored a suite at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. For every celeb that walked through their suite and took a whack at a monkey pinata, they donated $100 toward pediatric cancer! I love a company that gives back and I know you all do too!

We were sent some Monkey Brains products to review. Although my kids are a bit younger than the typical "tween" age, they watch many tween aged shows on TV and already want to imitate the hairstyles they see. My kids & I loved the fact that the bottles are fun and banana shaped complete with the monkey. The names of the Monkey Brains line are awesome too, like Grease Monkey Hair Pomade and Goop Out Shampoo.

I loved how the pomade we received wasn't sticky on my daughter's hair, brought a great shine to it and although it lasted throughout the day, it washed out completely in the shower that evening. The hair gel we received will be used more when Bub finally sits for the spiky haircut I have been dreaming of him to have. I am hoping by this summer he will be able to rock that style for years to come.
