eek! left my kiddos' hair like *straw* -- the boy now has locks that won't lie down and feel brittle, and the girl needs serious oil treatment. i've tried many supposedly gentle, natural shampoos for them, and this one unfortunately will be used up only as a bodywash. really, really terrible on their hair (which is thick, wavy, and blonder-than-blond).
as a bodywash, it's gentle, basic, doesn't seem to aggravate the eczema too much.
glad that burt's has a fragrance-free option: i don't understand the point of the fragrance loading in their other products (buttermilk lotion!).
Finding affordable shampoo that isn't full of chemicals is a real challenge.
I use this on myself, though I think it would be suitable for kids. It leaves the hair feeling nice and it foams nicely without containing anything harsh.
It is a perfect two in one for my gym bag. I like it better than the Weleda shampoo & wash, which contains fragrance.
*** Update: I found that when citric acid and sodium benzoate are put together, they can form benzene, which is carcinogenic. This still gets a good rating on EWG though...
