Here’s a confession, I don’t use baby shampoo on my kids hair. I’ve been to other people’s houses with my girls on playdates and while I’m using the bathroom I’ve noticed the container of baby shampoo sitting on the side of the tub, or the primary coloured bottle of “kids” shampoo with the cartoon characters dancing across the label. Even when the girls would visit their grandmother and stay for a bath she would break out special bubble bath stuff and shampoos just for them. Meanwhile at home my girls have been using various scents of Herbal Essences for a couple of years now. It left me feeling like the fact that my 3 or 4 year old was actually using “grown-up shampoo” was one of my dirty little secrets.
So here’s the truth, my admission, I use Herbal Essences shampoo on my daughters hair, and have been for a few years now. They love the fruity natural scents, and so do I. We’ve been alternating between using Long Term Relationship, which is supposed to help strengthen long hair against damage and breaks, and The Sleeker the Butter, which is meant for taming frizzy flyaway hair. Long Term Relationship smells like pomegranate and raspberries. According to the blurb on the bottle The Sleeker the Butter has the “soothing scent of cupuaçu butter”, which I find to be nutty and mellow.
