Review of "Johnsons No More Tears Baby Shampoo"
Now the burning question for me is not “What is the meaning of life?”, nor is it “Why are 3 for 2 offers always on products you take ages to use anyway?” but, “What does ‘no more tears’ really mean?”I have been using Johnsons baby shampoo for 15 months now for washing my daughters hair. Now, she’s always been a grumpy little baby in the bath, and especially when I wash her hair, when the tears would flow readily. I just put this down to the fact that she doesn’t like her hair being washed, and nothing to do with anything else. I have now discovered the real reason for her tears and it is this - after her hair has been washed – it looks c**p and SHE knows it!
I discovered this astonishing revelation a couple of weeks ago when we all went on holiday. To save space in the suitcase, I just took one of everything that we could all use, ie. soap, shampoo, and so the Johnsons baby shampoo was packed for us all.Whenever I have washed her hair before, when it has dried, it always looks – well, not quite clean. I, again put this down to her being a very warm baby, and her head, more often that not is, well, sweaty. So I think you know the look I mean (rat’s tail effect, for those of you who don’t). When I came to wash my own hair on holiday, it just didn’t feel right on the first rinse – it still felt ‘acky’. So I gave it a second go. At this point I would also like to mention that it did not lather up particularly much. I could have accepted this to a degree for the first application, but not for the second. I rinsed the shampoo off, and again it felt there was something missing. Now all this could have been due to a couple of contributory factors. Namely:
We were at the seaside – the sun, sand and sea air does strange things to the hair.
We were in a slightly hard water area – back home, we aren’t.
Not willing to ‘dis’ the shampoo however, because of the contributory factors I mentioned earlier, I thought I would give it one last try when I got home. I am familiar with my own water, and how my hair should looked when it is new washed, so I tried the shampoo in a proper investigative way – I washed my hair on 2 separate occasions once with and once without conditioner. The results? Well for the time I washed it with, my hair again was brittle, but not strawlike this time. No, it was more dried grass like! The second experimental wash – my hair clung to my head and refused to budge!So in conclusion, my little girl cries every time I use this shampoo on her. This is not because it stings or irritates her eyes (the plus side which I assume is the flaky reasoning behind their ‘no more tears’ claim) but because she knows that she is going to be out and about with rubbish hair! Anyway, we’re gonna have ‘lots more tears’ for a while yet, because I’ve still got buckets of the stuff left to get through! Oh and one more positive aspect to this product – it does smell nice and lemony fresh!
Now for the technical stuff or in layman’s terms, the ingredients:Aqua, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, PEG 150 Dsitearate, Laurel Betaine, Polyquaternium-10, Quaternium-15, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Parfum, C.I. 47005, C.I. 15985.
I have had to check up on the price of this product, as I have never bought it (and never will). There must have been a 2 for 1 offer on at Boots or wherever, when my daughter was born. My friends, and many of my relatives, all saw fit to buy us gifts consisting of 2 bottles of the shampoo, along with 2 tubs of talc, a flannel, and so on. So the price at Asda (this morning) for a 300ml bottle is £1.89.
