I was in search for organic shampoo for my daughter since long. I wanted something that should be natural and organic for her hair as well as body. I found this Organic Care Kids 3 in 1 conditioning shampoo & body wash.
Company claims this shampoo is Grey water safe, SLS free, Vegan. This is Australian made & owned shampoo. So here I would like to talk about this shampoo.
Before starting I want to explain about Grey water and SLS . Grey water in simplest word it’s a re-usable water that is treated to use again from domestic waste water. This treated water is reused for non-drinking purposes in toilets, bathroom etc. This is a great way of saving water. I don’t want to go in more details about this as there any many theories on use of grey water. That’s all different discussion to do.
Coming to SLS in shampoos, SLS stands for Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. Simply s it’s a type of detergent that is used in shampoos. Now think about detergents, what comes in your mind? That’s scary!!! Isn’t it? How can we use detergent for hair? So Organic Care claims that their shampoo is free from SLS, but still there are other chemicals in this.
For vegans, this means that there’s no ingredients from animals in this shampoo. That is very important for me. Now let’s talk about experience using Organic Care Kids 3 in 1 shampoo.
Since I have started using this shampoo, I feel my daughter’s hair has started improving. I wash her hair once in a week and this shampoo removes all the dust in one wash. It smells good too. It smells like a raspberry fruit. kids love this fragrance of course.
My daughter has very dense hair and at the end of the week her hair becomes worse and tangled. They sweat a lot too. And because of sweating hair catch lots of dust and smell as well. Earlier I always had issues after washing her hair. But since I have started using Organic Care Kids 3 in 1 shampoo, I can see lots of improvement in her hair. Hair becomes silky and smooth after wash.
I apply very small amount of shampoo on her hair and massage very well all around her head. Then I wash it off with warm water. Make sure you remove all the shampoo very well. Again, I do another round of shampoo, this time I just massage a little bit because this time I want this to work as a conditioner. After a second massage I rinse it off with warm water. Do not remove all the shampoo because we want to let it work like a conditioner. Just rinse with water.After towel dry her hair, I let her hair open to let them dry naturally. Never use a dryer for kids hair.
I would also like to mention that I use same shampoo sometimes, for her body too. As this shampoo claims its conditioner and shampoo as well as a body wash. I do use this shampoo as a body wash but not every time. For body wash I use another Organic Care kids body wash. I will write a different article on kids body wash by Organic Care.
We all know that nothing is pure and natural in today’s world. If you talk about natural and organic products, they still have some chemicals that can’t be avoid. But still if something comes with less chemicals, I would prefer to use that. Its all personal choices.
