Finding the right shampoo for your kids’ hair can be a bit of a challenge. Lots of adult shampoos contain lots of high strength chemicals or additives which aren’t great for young skin and hair.
And there’s always the risk of stingy eyes because even now I still spend most of my time when washing Caitlin’s and Ieuan’s hair shouting ‘tip your head back’ and grabbing their flannels when they do anything but.
Vosene is a brand I’ve known for many years and now they have a great range of kids’ shampoos. We have been using the Squeaky Clean range from Vosene Kids for a while now to repel those nasty nits who made their first appearance in the Hobbis household over Christmas. Great timing nits!
The products are modestly priced, readily available, smell nice and do the job. Just about all you can ask for really.
There are two ranges to choose from – Squeaky Clean and Fruity Goodness.
The Squeaky Clean range includes the 3 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioning Defence Spray to help you to achieve tangle-free, shiny hair, as well as offering advanced protection in the fight against head lice. Dermatologically tested and MIT-free.
3 in 1 Shampoo (RRP £2.54, 250ml) – Gently cleanses and conditions your child’s hair and scalp for naturally shiny, healthy-looking hair. The specially formulated shampoo also contains natural tea tree oil and lemon eucalyptus oil to help keep prevent head lice when used alongside the Conditioning Defence Spray (below).
Conditioning Defence Spray (RRP £2.54, 150ml) – This fantastic leave-in spray detangles and smooths your child’s hair. The clinically proven formula also helps to prevent head lice, using natural ingredients such as citronella oil. (Both suitable for kids age 3+)
Strawberry 2 in 1 Shampoo (RRP £1.99, 250ml) – The Strawberry 2 in 1 Shampoo will ensure your children’s locks smell as good as they look. With a fresh, fruity strawberry scent, the whole family will appreciate the burst of natural fruit extract which also helps to leave your children’s hair shiny, soft and tangle-free. We loved the smell of this one!
Melon 2 in 1 Shampoo (RRP £1.99, 250ml) – The fresh Melon 2 in 1 Shampoo adds a fruity twist to bath time, resulting in shiny, soft and great-smelling hair which is free from tangles and knots. Kids love the fresh, fruity melon smell of this mild and pH balanced 2 in 1 shampoo. This one was definitely Ieuan’s favourite.
