Despite the numerous beauty benefits of being pregnant (think thicker, shinier tresses!), there’s also the disadvantages. You can’t dye your hair (at least not during your first trimester anyway), and there seems to never be enough time in the day to style it. So what’s a pregnant gal to do then? Check out these four amazing hair care products that will not only simplify your morning routine but are safe for your baby as well.
1. Cricket Ultra Smooth Conditioning Comb, $5.99
Summer heat have your hair totally wigging out? Fight frizz and freshen up on the run with the help of Cricket’s new Ultra Smooth Conditioning Comb. Infused with keratin protein and olive & argan oils, this miracle hair tool works on all hair types and smoothes tresses in no time flat. It’s so great in fact, it just won an Essence “Best of Black Beauty Award” and was recognized as a sanity and money saving beauty tool by Real Simple.
2. Generation Klean Gray Disappear, $15.99
Banish those pesky grays that pop up during pregnancy with Generation Klean’s new Gray Disappear. A hair mascara wand that temporarily disguises roots, Gray Disappear allows you to keep your mane in check until you can actually visit the salon again. Not to mention, it’s paraben, sulfate and PG free and also contains panthenol, Vitamin E and other natural waxes that are great for your hair. Available in four gorgeous shades (black, brown, red and blonde), there’s a perfect fit for everyone!
3. DANU Mother Fluffer Volumizing Shampoo, $22.00
Created by two salon-owning moms, DANU’s line of organic hair products is safe for both you and your baby. Right now, we’re really loving their Mother Fluffer Volumizing Shampoo. It’s formulated without all the toxic chemicals found in other leading brands and it naturally fluffs your hair, giving it bounce and shine.
If you’re a mom to be suffering from dry, distressed hair, grab Louise Galvin’s Sacred Locks Treatment Masque and give it a try. Made especially for pregnant women, it nourishes the scalp and hair while also aiding in calcium retention, which is extremely important during pregnancy. Shine on, ladies.
