We’ve always known that mothers are resilient superheroes, but the last two years have multiplied and underscored this absolute fact. Between working, keeping up with the family, and becoming homeschool teachers virtually overnight, moms proved once and for all there is nothing they can’t do.
This spring, we’re hopeful as ever that we can resume our Mother’s Day brunches, dinners, and get-togethers, and we look forward to showering all of the moms in our lives with the love and appreciation they deserve. What better way to delight a hard-working mom on Mother’s Day than with a little self-care moment?

For the Mom Who Recently Reinvented Herself
As mothers, it can be easy to fall into a rut or a daily routine, and we’d be lying if we said we hadn’t made a rash decision to color our hair to spice things up! Whether you regret the move or absolutely love your new hair hue, keeping a good recovery system on hand is imperative to maintaining hair’s health after such a drastic change.
Redken Extreme Bleach Recovery
Give mom’s colored mane the R&R it needs with lamellar water, one of the hottest trends in hair care. This rinse-out conditioning treatment was formulated for bleach-damaged hair, but works on all types of hair damage (and all textures!) to help fill porosity while providing softness, smoothness, and shine.
For the Long-Distance Mom Who Wants a Little Quality Time Together
Regardless of whether you’re still social distancing due to health concerns or just live further away than you’d like to, it’s a good thing digital connection is always there to bring us together. If the mom in your life loves her quality time, send her a Mother’s Day Gift you can both enjoy from afar.

Hair is left seven times shinier and smoother in just three to five minutes, making it the perfect pregame to a tall glass of wine and a video meeting with her favorite child (or BFF!).
For the Mom Who Does Everything for Everyone

Hair color depth, tone, and shine stay vivid and bright until your next hair appointment.
For the Mom Who Has Blonde as Bright as the Sun

For the On-the-Go Mom Who Often Misses Her Scheduled Trims
If we could let anyone slide for flaking on a scheduled salon trim, it’s a busy mom.

Luckily, an at-home breakage mender can help keep strands appear smooth during these longer periods.

For the One Mom Who Can’t Seem to Win the Battle Against Frizz
