Kristen Bell Pleads For Fans' Help After Daughter 'Washed Her Hair With Vaseline'

Every mother runs into problems like these.

Usually, they go to other mothers for help, maybe their own mom, or other mom friends, or even neighborhood moms.

But the best thing about being a celebrity is that you can just tweet/put up an Instagram story and all of your mom fans will come to the rescue!

Kristen Bell is one of television's greatest personalities, and a beloved celebrity to all.

She's super real with her fans and just seems like a super relatable person.

That's what people look for in celebs!

She's also a super big hit with parents because of all her hilarious stories that she has about her children!

Between explaining Santa and death to them, it's a never-ending whirlwind of constant lessons in parenthood for her and husband Dax Shepard.

When explaining Santa to them, she took a very practical approach.

"I’m able to talk my daughters through who gave them each gift," she explained. "I try to reiterate that these presents don’t just fall from the sky; they came from a thoughtful individual whom we need to thank."

But Bell's daughter didn't believe in Santa at all.

"She said, ‘I’m just not buying this whole Santa Claus thing. There’s no way he would be able to make it to every single house. You said there’s billions of people on the planet,’” Bell said.

So she told her daughter the truth.

Bell said that the idea of Santa Claus is “an imaginary game we play because it’s really, really fun.”

Which, let's be honest, that's a great way to break it to your kids.

In fact, Bell was even able to turn a loved family member passing away into a teaching moment!

“Their grandfather was dying — and he’s already passed, but while he was dying, my little girl was in the back and said, ‘So when papa dies…Are we gonna come to Oregon with you?'” Bell said.

“And I was like, ‘Yeah, you’ll come.’"

“She was like, ‘Okay. Do I need to bring my shovel? Because I have a garden set.’"

"And I said, ‘Why would you pack your shovel, honey?’ She goes, ‘Well, I want to help bury him. Where do we do it? The side of the house? Or…’ Like, so practical and wanted to help."

“I had to explain to her that we, you know, we don’t bury him on the side of the house because it’s not legal,” Bell shared.

“She’s a younger member of the family contributing to an older member’s peaceful passing on,” she said.

“Some people could say she’s a sociopath but I’m not going down that route,” she added.

In fact, their daughter even asked if she would die one day too!

"And we just said, 'Yes, you're gonna die.' And she went, 'Ugh…' And then we said, 'And we really don't know what happens when you die. You may just become flowers,'" she continued.

Man, thats deep.

But it isn't always cute moments that she has with her children!

Just like every other parent on the planet, there are as many tough times with your children as there are cute times.

Recently, Bell ran into a little issue with her daughter.

One of her two daughters, Delta, 5, and Lincoln, 6, accidentally washed her hair with vaseline.

It was the nightmare, but luckily, chances were that she is not the only mom who had to deal with it.

She did what any good celebrity mom would do.

She took to Instagram, where she asked her followers to recommend some homemade remedies for getting vaseline out of hair.

“My daughter just washed her hair with Vaseline and I can’t get it out."

"Has this ever happened to anyone? Does anyone have any tips on how to get it out?”

She desperately asked, adding: “I washed it three times now but it’s not getting any better.”

After posting that one her Instagram story, the answers obviously came flooding in. Why pass up an opportunity to help Kristen Bell?

And the general answer she got was: dish soap!

She used that method and as you can see from the above picture, the situation was handled.

A resounding "well done" to the Instagram community! You've saved a little girl's hair!
