L’Oreal for Kids Shampoo ***********************
My Daughter was born with a head-full of hair. She lost it a wee bit but now at 18 months old and looking like a three year old with her longer than shoulder length, curly hair, kids shampoo is very high on the shopping list. I’ve tried more than a few products and being honest all work more or less exactly the same because, not being anywhere near her teenage years, having greasy or dry hair is a low priority next to “mummy, what will I wear to nursery!!”. What I’m trying to say is she doesn’t care. So what sets L’Oreal for kids apart of the other competitors, for me? It’s smell. Every bottle and “flavour” I have tried smell absolutely scrumptious! They come in-
Fast dry Cool Melon and Pineapple Flash Shampoo 2-in-1; Orange Mango Blueberry Strawberry Swim Shampoo in Orange Extra Manageability Tropical Punch Banana Melon for fine hair Watermelon for thick, curly or wavy hair And……. Cherry Almond for extra conditioning.
What L’Oreal says ***************
“As a world leader in the beauty industry, L'Oréal Paris has an unparalleled commitment to technology, research and innovation. L'Oréal's continued dedication to developing future landmark products has placed them far ahead of the competition in beauty-related patent registrations.” (www.lorealparisusa.com)
Reading on in the L’Oreal for kid’s part of the website, it actually states that these are made for “young adults”.
The shampoo ************
Currently I’m using extra gentle so strawberry 2-in-1 shampoo on Eabha. It’s a very thick, pink coloured shampoo. As I’ve said it smells just gorgeous. It’s very sweet, very much like a strawberry sweetie, entirely synthetic however, looking at the ingredients; no strawberry has been harmed in the making of this shampoo. The problem that arises in my mind of this is that a wee one may be tempted to take a slurp, I know I have, and hiccup bubbles for the rest of the night.
It claims that it leaves the hair with no knots, is very gentle and kind to the eyes. I can back up these claims as Eabha’s hair does not knot, even the morning after using it. And after the way this baby can move around the cot and mess up her hair, it’s nothing short of remarkable. I’ve also never experienced her having sore eyes after getting this diluted stuff in them. Obviously I have never poured the shampoo straight into her eyes from the bottle (I’m committed to the research for my reviews but I’m thinking that would have went a bit far!!) but when rinsing her hair it’s inevitable that some will get in there and she’s been totally fine. As for the claim that you’ll say “bye-bye to split ends”, I can’t comment as she has none (but then maybe that’s because of the shampoo!!)
The packaging *************
It shape is very “user friendly”. It’s specifically made to look attractive to the child’s eye and also kind of shaped like a fish, continuing the nautical theme of being in water. There is a wee fish eye on the front and wee pink scales as well. Each bottle is co-ordinated colour to the “flavour” of the shampoo. The so strawberry is pink with a red lid, the cherry is red with an orange lid, orange is obviously orange but with a green lid and so on and so forth.
It costs £1.69 for 250ml which is 67.6p per 100ml. So it's not too hard on the pocket.
I would highly recommend this shampoo for babies and young people. I have tried this myself but it weighed my hair down and left it feeling very greasy. It isn’t designed for adults so this is no slight on the product. There are no real drawbacks to this shampoo, but I took one star away because wee ones might eat it, maybe.
