How Disney World switched to Original Sprout products that reduced Migraine triggers and headaches

*This post contains affiliate links. My referrals are my own opinion. I only recommend things I truly love and use for myself and family. I was given products as a review. See disclaimer for more

Recently, I went to Disney World with my family.  I love Disney World!  My family, the adventures, the magic and the fun.  It all was a dream come true.

After my last experience at the boutique that turns my daughter into a princess, I feared the hair spray smell. The last time we went, the lights were really bright.  Beyond the lights was the smell.  Oooooooooh the smell.  I had started my day with a migraine. Standing in air that was saturated with strong hair spray made me really sick!

This time, I was prepared.  I had my Axon Optics in my purse and wore a scarf that I sprayed with my favorite essential oil to cover my nose.  As we were called back and I entered the room, I was confused.  Where was the smell?

As we settled in, I asked our fair Godmother what was different. The air was breathable without trigger and I felt much more relaxed.  The answer was Original Sprout.  She then explained to me how their last hair spray was so stiff that it was giving little girls headaches.  My ears perked up when she said the word “headache” because I live to prevent headaches in my family.

Disney World switched to Original Sprout products to give the little girls a more natural and less stiff hairstyle.  I was so impressed with their response to give families a “soft, strong, healthy hold” that provides thicker luscious locks all day & night. The Natural Finishing Mist is “for all hair types & textures with organic extracts & plant proteins to help strengthen & smooth.”  The soothing organic extracts made a huge difference as a migraine trigger and breathable air.

The experience was so much more enjoyable with using Original Sprout products.  Thank you to Disney World for making the responsible switch to Original Sprout and thank you to Original Sprout for the products to try after falling in love with your line.
