From the first days of her life, my Gracie Anna has hated having her hair washed. She doesn't even like to have her head wet.
It's like The Cat in the Hat, rewritten – not in the pool, not at the beach, not in the bath, not in the sink. She does not ever want her hair to be wet.
She loves taking a bath, as long as her hair stays dry.
You can imagine that shampoo time got pretty dicey. The bigger she's gotten, the harder it has become to wash her hair. She flips around and, more often than not, she ends up getting shampoo and water directly in her face. The bucket gets poured, and she jerks right into the stream. It's unfortunate (and the shampoo is gentle and tear-free), but it happens almost every time. Then the sputtering and screaming begin.
I feel really bad, because I know she's not just throwing a fit. She cries and says “All Done!” and signs and everything. It's stressful for all three of us.
So, you can imagine that I was delighted and optimistic when I was offered a Lil Rinser for review. We'd tried a lot of different products, but never one like this.
The day it arrived, Grace pulled it out of the box, said , “Oh, wow! Hat!” and put it on her head. I thought this was a good sign.
I put the Lil Rinser on her head during the bath, and she was still excited. She laughed and told me about her ornge hat and touched it.
Then I rinsed her hair, and she was no longer happy about the hat. There was no water in her face – not even a drop. The Lil Rinser channelled every bit of the water back, away from her face, to the back of her head. It worked perfectly.
These days, shampooing is still a struggle because Grace has started pulling away from the Lil Rinser. Water gets in her eyes. I hope, though, as she ages, that she'll eventually understand that it's helping her and she'll let us use it.
The Lil Rinser is inexpensive, and it works exactly as it's supposed to. I definitely recommend it, expecially if your child struggles with hair washing.
