There’s One Product You Always Can Count On When Dealing With A Teenage Boy’s Style Phases

This post is sponsored by Mirum, but all opinions expressed are my own.

As a mother, you probably have or are currently going through the confusion of “the teenage boy.”

It feels nearly impossible to keep up with what phase they are going through, because it changes practically everyday. What they were into yesterday, is considered “lame” today, and tomorrow it will be something completely new.

They grow up so fast, and it’s hard to keep up sometimes. Luckily there’s one product you know you can count on for any and every phase your son is going through.

Axe hair styling products can be used for any hairstyle your son is into, they’re easily adaptable and always reliable. You can find any of these products at your local CVS, and at an awesome price with their current promotional offers.

Here are some hairstyles your son can try out for any phase he may be going through:

They’ll most likely be at this phase in their late teens. When they start to wake up five minutes before they have to leave the house, they’ll want to try this style. This style will make them finally look good while lazy, instead of throwing on that disgusting baseball cap.

For this style, you’ll want to use the AXE Messy Look Matte Wax.  This wax is perfect for a laid back hair style because it gives them that perfect, “I didn’t try but I still look good,” look. This wax will also keep that look for them all day long but won’t stiffen their hair too much.

This look is probably the easiest, and should only take them a couple of minutes to do.

They should start with freshly washed hair to get the best results. The rest is easy, they should use a small dab of the wax and run their fingers through their hair, while also shaking their hair around a little bit. This will form the perfect messy hair look they are looking for.

If you haven’t seen this phase yet, trust me you will. For some reason, almost every teenage boy goes through this phase, even if it’s for a short while. This usually happens in their younger teen or preteen years and can last for a day or even years.

This style works best with the AXE Natural Look Softening Cream. This cream is incredibly easy to use, and it will create a textured hairstyle, that will stay in place all day.

To get this look, they should start with clean and dry hair. He should evenly distribute the cream on his hands, then he can then run his fingers through his hair towards the back of his head. This looks especially good if he angles his hair back and to one side.

Doing this will give him a clean, pulled back look that will be an easy way to look clean and put together. All he needs is his button up shirt and he will be ready to go.

This is probably everyone of our least favorite phases to have to watch, but it happens. This is probably that phase where you beg them to cut their over-gown, greasy hair, but they refuse.

They will want to use the AXE Natural Look Understated Cream for this look. This styling cream will tame their wild hair. It also has just enough hold to keep their hair in place, without having it look crunchy or over-styled.

This relaxed and “rocker” style, actually works best with longer and messy hair. They can either apply this cream to completely dry hair, or towel dried damp hair.

They should start with just a small dab and add more if they need to. For this style, they should rake their fingers all through their hair from root to tip. This looks best if they rake their hair upwards, to get a little volume. Using a small comb can also make this easier. When they’re done, they can throw on their jean jacket to complete the look.

9 Reasons Having A Son Is The Best Blessing You Could Ever Receive

Having kids is a true gift from God. They grace us with their smiles and laughter every day, and even when we’re upset or disappointed with them, nothing can replace the love they make us feel unconditionally.

Any mom of boys will understand just how much love there is between a mother and her sons. It’s a love unlike any other, and it reminds us constantly that having a son is the best blessing you could ever have in life. Here’s why:


This seems obvious, but the love a son has for his mother stands the test of time. They may try to rebel and be a “bad boy,” but they will always have a soft spot for their first caretaker. Even though girls are often seen as the emotional ones, sons will always love a hug from their mother, especially when they’re younger. They grow up loving cuddles and wanting to stay close, because of the connection between a son and his mother.


Some people may see this as a curse, but boys are young at heart for a lot longer. You can still help them grow and mature even while they’re in high school, and that’s something you can never replace. Being a mother to boys is so rewarding, and any mom will tell you they want to hold on to that nurturing relationship as long as they can.


Of course, there’s always the exception, but with boys it is so much easier to get them up and out the door. They don’t care what they’re wearing, they don’t need ponytails or braids or any other hairstyle that requires effort. Boys will go with whatever you lay out for them (for the most part) and won’t spend 20 minutes complaining that they want to wear the purple skirt with the green tank top!

Woman Diagnosed With Terminal Cancer Writes Powerful Letter To Sons, Then Faces Heartache Yet Again

After a terminal brain cancer diagnosis, a mother is facing the inevitable heartbreak of leaving her two sons to grow up without her.

When Sara Chivers, 34, found out her longtime battle with cancer had become terminal, she decided to write an emotional goodbye letter to her beloved children, The New Daily reports.

The Australian native was given the devastating news back in March, when doctors told her the three tumors in her brain were inoperable. She had previously beat the same disease in 2008.

In her letter, she touched upon many topics, sharing words of wisdom, giving sound advice, and speaking of her unconditional love for her sons, 3-year-old Hugh and Alfie,18 months.

“Be brave in your convictions and believe in yourself. Never tease or ridicule someone because they’re different to you. You will be a better person by surrounding yourself with people who will challenge your views and beliefs,” the letter said.

“Love hard. As they say, it is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all. That’s how I feel about you both,” she wrote. “Heartbroken doesn’t come close to describing the pain I feel at not being in your lives in the future, but I would never change or forego the time we have spent together and the immense joy you have brought me. You are without a doubt my proudest accomplishments.”

She also spoke of the strength of her husband: “Your Dad is the most admirable, courageous man I have ever known. He is my companion, my rock, my everything. He has shown true grit in the face of our adversities, and without him beside me I would have crumbled.”

However, in a devastating twist, the couple have recently found out their youngest son has also been diagnosed with brain cancer as well.
