Kids Hairstyles: Mousse Vs Gel?

Posted by Matthew S on Thu, Apr 16, 2015 @ 11:04 AM

gelmousse
Mousse or Gel? Our kids hair products are pH-balanced just for children, so baby hair mousse really is for babies, and hair Spiker really can fix a toddler’s Faux Hawk - all without finding the two of you in tears! Nevertheless, there are products that promote promising effects, but can unfortunately leave users wanting more. As an example, Mousse is an expanding product by definition, which can sometimes damage a child's hair. And while Shear Madness does carry an all-natural foaming mousse that is ideal for course curls and has a fantastic fruity frangrance - we've found that bounce creme works with all hair types, so we recommend it above all others! Meanwhile, gels are too difficult to properly proportion when hair is fine or thin (or both), and tend to leave locks laden with layers of lackluster goop!

hair2For this reason, we urge against hair gels or mousses for your little ones. Even our educated child cosmetologists can sometimes get crumby results when creating curl concoctions with chalky gels and goopy mousses. Which is just one more reason to bump up your bounciness with our curl boost cream! Sure, the Eighties were great, and perms were perfectly punk – but in this century, kids’ hairstyles are darling (and daring) enough without that dusting of white residue or wet-looking ringlets.

Whether you are naturally wavy or bottled to bounce, tousles all across time have asked the same tress question: Which is best for curly hair? Bouncy Créme! As a children's hair salon, we have put the testimonials of tons of tremendous hair products to the test and one result reigned supreme:

bouncy creme

Our Bouncy Créme!

This light cream instantly rejuvenates curly, wavy or textured hair by separating and defining--everything you want and need in a curl-whirling product--while leaving hair full of shine without the flaking and stiffness! The easy-to-pump bottle dispenses a silky smooth serum to be worked through clean, damp hair.

The different looks of styling cream hairstyles

When added to wet hair, a cream conditions and strengthens hair by adding an extra layer of protection from the elements. However, this kid-friendly, mother-approved hair-tonic defines curls and controls frizz. It is great for blow drying for volume, but has been used most by scrunching for definition.

Why use styling cream?

Like all our favorite products, there are natural ingredients making them just right for your little one - and the Bouncy Créme is no exception. This texture energizer contains emollients to soften hair, retain moisture, prevent frizz and flyaways, all while providing a smooth feel and adding shine. There is also a "Bounce-Back" polymer that protects the hair against thermal damage, as well as conditions and defrizzes curls. Possibly the most recognizable are its humectants that moisturize hair without weighing it down, all while controlling frizz for smooth curls. These special ingredients replenish moisture for body and luster! To complete your look, after scrunching this product through the hair, simply spritz your loved one with Vanilla Freeze Hairspray for a finished look and Voila! Your MADtastic ‘DO is MADsmermizing!

Makeover Spa Parties for Girls

Glamour and glitz is what you'll get when you plan a party at Shear Madness!  The party concept by Shear Madness involves a stage, a runway, lots of awesome costumes, and primping and pampering by our own darling Pink Starlets. Girls get a “Backstage Pass”, which gives them full access to our behind-the-scenes wardrobe department where they will create the perfect sartorial ensemble. Next, the up-and-comers will sit back and relax while the Pink Starlets hover over them, creating fabulous up-doo’s, applying glamorous make-up, and polishing fingernails. After a few more finishing touches, VOILA!  The girls hit the stage for a funky, fun fashion show and whatever else they might be inspired to do during their shot at fame and glory! Dancing, singing, or just struttin’ their stuff, the girls are sure to have an awesome experience they will remember long after the party is over.

In addition to haircuts and parties we offer a babys first haircut package, fantastic girl updos, mini manicures and pedicures for your little darlings and a retail boutique that can't be beat!
