Living in New York City offers tons of perks including specialized kids hair salons. My kids will only get their hair cut by Cathy at Cozy Cuts. We have been regular customers for over seven years.
I applaud Founder Cozy Friedman for creating such a successful business for kids hair (I may have an extra affinity for her since my maiden name was also Friedman). What started with an innovative idea to open a salon just for kids, has grown into the nationally-recognized SoCozy brand of salon-quality hair care products developed specifically for kids.
SoCozy’s latest collection HUSH is available in the baby aisle in participating Target stores which means you don’t have to be a city dweller to easily get your hands on this special line of hair products which has been dermatologist and allergy tested to treat sensitive scalp.
If my dad was still alive, he would say his granddaughter, Greenlee , (pictured below) is 12 bald men’s dream. She has been blessed with extra thick gorgeous locks which we affectionately refer to as “mermaid hair.” At three years old, she has already received five hair cuts and is overdue for another appointment with Cathy at Cozy Cuts.
I splurge on my kid’s hair products. While my husband uses Pantene and Head in Shoulders, it’s nothing but the top of the line salon products for my son, Ian and Greens. Ian’s hair has always been cut short and preppy and is extremely manageable. He just shampoos and towel dries.
Greenlee requires a serious shampoo and deep conditioner (no baby lines will do).
She also must use a strong detangler. Without the right detangler, Greenlee’s hair will turn into a “rat’s nest.” I will try anything and everything on her, including sharing my own expensive products, including Aveda brilliant (damage control) and Dry Bar’s Prep Rally (prime & prep detangler) and Mr. Incredible (leave-in conditioner)
The skin of infants and children is quite different from adult skin. Their skin is thinner and has less resistance to environmental irritants and pathogens. That’s why I’d much rather Greenlee use her own detangler. I know we have plenty of years ahead of us to share accessories and probably clothing. Then I can be less stingy using my own products on myself. I am so happy that SoCozy Sensitive Leave-In Ultra-Gentle Detangler Spray ($12.50) worked for Greenlee’s hair. It can even be sprayed when hair is dry to add moisture. It’s a win/win because now I can be less stingy using my own products on myself.
The Hush Sensitive 2in1 Soothing Shampoo and Conditioner ($14.50) comes with a soft massaging brush which is ideal for any babies battling cradle cap. I especially like that it’s fragrance free.
As posted on the product labels, there are “NO NASTIES. NO JOKE.” SoCozy never contains Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Synthetic Color, or Propylene Glycol. Plus they are free of Gluten, Wheat, Peanuts and Tree Nuts. SoCozy cares about kids and you can see and feel it when using their products.
So the next time you make a Target run, remember to pick up these products in the baby aisle. The full line will only cost you $44 which means you still have at $56 to spend on other items. (Because I don’t know anyone who can leave Target without spending at least $100)
