Keeping soapy suds at bay!
Dear mummy, you know how much I hate getting water in my eyes and ears, so we couldn’t believe our luck when we stumbled on this product on Amazon.
It’s by a company called Akord Technologies and classed as a shower cap. But it’s not really a shower cap as it allows you to wear it like a crown. It means you can wash a child’s hair without it dripping water onto their face and in their ears. Perfect for me!
It’s a really funny material and feels like sponge. It’s actually a soft super-elastic (EVA ROHS 2 Certified) material with 3-buttons to adjust the size to your babies and toddlers head. It’s non-toxic and comes in pink or blue.
Bath times can be really challenging for me, especially when it’s time to wash my mop. I hate putting my face and head in water and it makes me cry. So we decided to give this a try.
My folks have made hair washing a bit of a game now. I get to wear this hat and call myself the Mermaid Queen as it kinda looks like a giant seashell crown. So I pretend to be a mermaid in the bath, this eases my anxiety and distracts me while I play with Ariel the mermaid.
We’ve tested this waterproof ‘crown’ for weeks and it really does help. It’s made me much happier in the bath and keeps soapy suds and water off my face and down the sides. Instead of screaming the house down I now whimper a little and I’m not as scared.
It’s really light weight too and it buttons up with poppers on the side, it means we can adjust the positioning on my head. Some days I like it above my eyebrows other times right on the hairline. Because my scalp is exposed daddy can carry on washing my hair some days without me even noticing!!
It’s designed for a head circumference of 40cm or over. So I have it on the smallest setting still. It’s suitable from 1 month all the way up to 15 years. This makes it a great investment for bath times!
RRP is £19.99 but we’ve seen it cheaper on Amazon. It’s a perfect solution to a tricky problem, and it has helped me, but everything in baby steps…I’ve still got a long way to go before hair washing is enjoyable!
