When it comes to hair care, most of us want the absolute best products with quality ingredients that will not only help us style our curls and tresses, but also keep our hair healthy. Most moms want even better for their children, so double that sentiment when it comes to taking care of your kids curls, kinks and coils!
While I don’t have children of my own yet, I have done my fair share of heads – little cousins, nieces, nephew and even some of my friends’ kids! It is always challenging to find products that are not full of icky chemicals and that are gentle enough not only to use on the fresh springy curls kids’ possess, but also that don’t contain any potential irritants for those with sensitive skin or allergies. Add in products lines that offer tearless shampoos and the search can get pretty exhausting! Fret no more my friends – here are five great companies that offer tear free products for your mini-queens and kings’ natural hair!
Mixed Chicks Kids
Mixed Chicks Kids – just like the adult counterpart – can be used on non-mixed children of course, and includes a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in and detangler. The good thing about their products is they offer different sizes so if you have a few heads to wash you can grab the large value sizes. As you can see from the photo above, this is the preferred shampoo (and conditioner) of my sister in law for my nephew so it gets the official L4L stamp of approval! Scroll to the end of this post to see the amazing results on my nephew’s hair!
As I Am Born Curly
Certified organic, As I Am Born Curly has a full line of gentle, natural hair products that includes a tear-free aloe shampoo and wash, avocado shea co-wash, argan leave-in conditioner and detangler, argan curl defining jelly, rosemary vanilla twist defining smoothie, nourishing hair & body oil and shea & cocoa butter balm. With all of that I’m pretty sure your babies’ hair will be well taken care of!
Curls Curly Qs
I absolutely love Curls products; my favorite is the Botanical Curls Gelee. So I have no doubt Curls Curly Qs line, is just as awesome for kid’s natural hair! For starters it is silicone, paraben, protein, glycerin and cruelty free. Of course the cleansing cream is free of sulfates and is a moisturizing cleanser. Other products in the line include the Curly Qs Coconut Dream Moisturizing Conditioner, Moist Curls Moisturizers and Curly Q Milkshake.
It’s a Curl!
It’s a Curl! is the first curly hair care line developed specifically for the needs of baby curls. They have also been opthamologist tested and are pediatrician recommended. Can’t go wrong when you get a stamp of approval from the experts! This line comes with four products: Peek-a-Boo Tearless Shampoo, Patty Cake Conditioner, Itsy Bitsy Spiral Baby Curl Moisturizer, Ring Around the Curlies Leave-In. I also give them an A for creativity with the nursery rhyme names!
MopTop Hair Fuzzy Duck
Free of sulfates, parabens and silicones but filled with aloe, honey and sea botanicals, the FuzzyDuck line has a tearless shampoo, conditioner anti-frizz gel and detangler/refresher spray. I’m not too familiar with the brand, but they claim to give manageability without weighing hair down.
