Monkey Brains - Review and Giveaway


Monkey Brains is a new collection of hair care that allows you to express yourself. To be fun, be cool and be yourself! With two Gels, two Glues, a Pomade, a Hair Refresher and a Shampoo and Conditioner you will be able to rock whatever hairstyle you're feelin' at that moment.One day you don't feel like getting in the shower and the next you're searching for the hair gel. But you're confident about how you want to look on any given day. Monkey Brains gives you the tools to look cool and have fun doing it.



I've got to say, I'm loving the overall package design of Monkey Brains products.  They appeal to children and have a unique look.  They're not something I could easily dismiss when I saw them on a store shelf.  My kids think the monkey and bright colors are super cool too.  But, as we all know, looks aren't everything.  It's the actual product that matters.  Me and my kiddos put some of the Monkey Brains products to the test. 


Although Monkey Brains hair care products are geared for kids under the age of 14, I have to admit that I tried the products on my own hair as well.  After all, mommy wanted to know exactly what she was putting on her kids' hair.  I have a little secret to tell, I'm more than double the age of 14 and I'd use Monkey Brains products on my own hair any day.



Of all the products I tried on my own hair, my favorite is the Grease Monkey Hair Pomade.  It's a pretty purple color with a grape scent that almost makes me crave some grape candy.  I've used pomades before that work, but require a thorough handwashing because they're so sticky.  This hair pomade isn't sticky and it's not even greasy.  I work it throughout my hair and I'm able to secure some of the curls in my hair.

My boys are particularly fond of the sticky hair glues and gels.  I have to remind them that a little can go a long way.  The gels and glues do a pretty good job of keeping hair in its desired style.  They have a long-lasting hold and I haven't seen any product build-up on any of the kids after using it.  The kids do have to wash their hands after applying the gels and glues because they can get a little sticky, and they need to wash their hair thoroughly to get it all out.

My oldest son, Logan, is in Track & Field after school and always comes home tired and sweaty.  He uses the Gone Bananas Hair Refresher after practices and track meets to keep his hair from stinking.  It has a pleasant scent and helps ward off the sweat smell  until  he's able to take a shower.

Monkey Brains has me and my kids impressed with their innovative packaging and super cool line of hair products.
