I’m gonna be honest: Between the kids being home all day, every day and hearing “I’m bored” at least 500 times a day, I’ve already had it with summer break. Mentioning this to a group of friends lead to a conversation about different things all moms experience at some point during the motherhood journey. Things like hearing “I’m hungry” every day of summer break or daydreaming about having more “me time.” Mom stress, y’all
When you bring home your first bundle of joy, your idea of motherhood is picture perfect, though that idea is quickly crushed as you realize that motherhood is nothing like what you thought it would be. It’s wonderful, absolutely. But it’s also messy and a ton of work and frustrating and often takes every bit of of patience that you have.
So I thought it’d be fun to share some things that lots of moms I know stress out about on a daily basis.
Being Tired. Beyond Belief. New moms quickly learn that what they thought “tired” was before kids is nowhere near what tired really is. Oh, and say goodbye to sleeping peacefully throughout the night, like ever again.
Going To The Bathroom Alone Actually Is Me Time. Kids will follow you everywhere, even into the bathroom. So if you want to poop alone, you gotta shut (and lock) the bathroom door. I’ve got an 8 year old and two 6 year olds and this still holds true. Shutting and locking the door when I use the bathroom or take a shower is sometimes the only time during the day that I get a few minutes alone.
You Will Ignore Your Kids. When you hear “Mom” a million times a day, you start to tune it out. The funny thing about this is that if your kids say it, you’ll ignore them. If someone else’s kids say it, you’ll respond.
You Have To Let Go, And It’s Scary. Kids want independence. They want to do things on their own, without your help. They want to pick out their own outfits and do their own hair (and sometimes in doing so they’ll end up looking ridiculous, but you’ve got to let them do it anyways.) They want to get on the computer without you standing over them watching what they’re doing. They want to walk down the street to a friend’s house, alone. It’s hard to give them independence, but it’s something we have to do.
Some Days, They’ll Make You Want To Pull Your Hair Out. We all have those days! And guess what? After having kids, some moms like me literally start losing their hair. It thins out and becomes hard to manage. After brushing your hair, you’ll be surprised you have any hair left in your head and wonder if you may be going bald.
Thinning hair affects men and women of all ages. Sometimes the cause is genetic, but it can also be triggered by certain life stages, like after having a baby (or in my case getting older.) But there is a solution…NIOXIN.
NIOXIN uses advanced technologies to deliver thicker, fuller, denser-looking hair. NIOXIN provides a real solution for making the most of the hair you have, and they help make it even better. There are 6 different systems to chose from, depending on your hair type and the condition it’s in. Each 3-part System Kit includes Shampoo, Conditioner & Treatment. Each kit includes an easy to use daily regimen consisting of just three steps. Use the kit for 30 days and you’ll get thicker, denser-looking hair, guaranteed.
I put NIOXIN to the test by taking the 30 Day Challenge. For the last month, I’ve been using the #5 System for normal to thin looking chemically treated hair. I also used the Night Density Rescue as well as the Bodifying Foam.
To find which System Kit would best fit my needs, I used the NIOXIN Consultation Tool. Then, I started using the products daily. I love the smell and tingle of the shampoo and conditioner. After my first use, my hair felt softer and I noticed less frizz.
And after just 30 days, WOW! What a difference! I have a head of full, frizz-free hair. Check out this before and after pic of how much hair used to come out of my head when I brushed my hair versus the amount I’m losing now.
Barely any hair comes out now! And the best part about NIOXIN’s 30 day money back guarantee challenge was that I can now hop out of the shower, put in some bodifying foam, and let my hair air dry. I would never be able to leave the house without blow drying or straightening my hair before, but now I can!
No frizz, no fuss, and it has body that it’s never had before! I’m hooked on NIOXIN!
I encourage you to give it a try for yourself – you’ve got nothing to lose because if it doesn’t make you happy, you can get your money back. So take the Challenge! Don’t forget to share your results with #NIOXINChallenge on NIOXIN’s Facebook and Twitter.
