Summer is finally here and we cannot wait for fun and frolics with the whole family. Lazy Sunday summer barbecues, days out exploring in the sunshine and heading off on holiday – we can’t wait! Whatever your plans this summer, Mini U offers a wide range of kids’ travel essentials that you won’t want to leave home without.
This is the first summer you’ll be able to pop the Mini U Miniatures Travel Kit into your bag when you head out on your adventures. We’ve taken three of our most popular products that customers love using on the go – Tropical Berries Hair & Body Wash, Honey Cream Shampoo and Honey Cream Conditioner – and shrunk them down to a travel-friendly size, conveniently stored in a re-useable wash bag. Our top tip is to pop these in your hand luggage along with a change of clothes for everyone, just in case your suitcases go AWOL! If you have a bigger family or a longer break planned, they’re all available in larger bottles for your suitcase.
If you have some water babies in your family, you’ll know that summer isn’t always kind to our hair. Swimming pool chlorine and salty sea water can leave hair dry and tangly, and children don’t fancy a lengthy hairdressing session when they get out of the water in the evening. Here are our top tips for skipping hairdressing headaches:
- Tie up long hair wherever possible!
- When you’re finished in the water, give hair a good rinse to leave any nasties behind.
- Use a wide-toothed comb for detangling, as brushes usually make things worse.
- Spritz Fresh Apple Detangling Spray evenly throughout damp hair and gently comb from the ends to the roots.
- For extra tough tangles, try applying Honey Cream Conditioner to wet hair before detangling.
- However tempting it is, don’t fall asleep on tangly wet hair – it’ll be a lot worse in the morning.
When the day comes to a close, persuading children to leave the pool or kid’s club and get ready for bedtime can be challenging. It’s a good idea to pack a few small treats for moments like these. We love the Crayons and Clouds gift set, which includes Mini U’s mess-free and plastic-free Bath Crayons, as well as enchanting Cloud Bath Bombs. They create a wonderfully vibrant bath time experience that is gentle on delicate young skin. Any of our other children’s bath bombs will be a hit as well!
