Most people are aware that I have a 14 year old, almost 15 year old son. My first born and my oldest child, he’s the one responsible for teaching me how to be a mother and raising him has been a pleasure, but now that he’s a teenager, in high school, I’m finding that I don’t always know what to expect because news flash: I was never a teenage boy! Evidently at this age hair is kind of a big deal so we’ve learned a few tips to make everyone’s life easier.
Hats. Now I wouldn’t say this is the only hair care tool a teen boy needs in his life, but on those days that catching the bus on time just doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen, there is a place for hats. Some days he’s at school 12 or 13 hours because of the activities he’s in so throwing on a hat is just easier, and that’s okay sometimes. And yes, this is my son’s normal, less than excited to head out in the mornings look – this was not special for this post.
Regular hair cuts or trims. Just as the same is true for ladies, regular trims helps keeps a boys luxurious locks healthy and maintained as well. Also, as we all know, puberty is insane and it can cause your hair to do some weird stuff. Keeping it trimmed can also give your hair dresser a chance to address any teenage issues he or she notices before your hair gets a mind of its own.
GRIT. Since hats aren’t always an option, not are they always desired, we keep GRIT on hand. I mean that great hair you’ve been working on has to be shown off sometimes right?! GRIT is an entire line of mens professional hair-care products that won’t break the bank and allows that grumpy teen to
walk run out the door in the morning looking and feeling like a million bucks. Let’s face it, in the 13-18 age range, good hair really can make all the difference in the world.
The best part is that GRIT doesn’t stop at just hair, it’s truly an entire line of products so the shampoo/body wash was a big hit in our house because it’s soooo much more work to open two bottles in the shower than just one. As the mother of a teenage boy, I’m a big fan of the body spray…because teenage boys – enough said. They smell awesome – pleasant and not overwhelming, yet masculine enough the boys and men will appreciate it.
