I discovered the Naked bodycare website the other day, and decided to order a batch of products as I'm really trying to use natural, paraben free products on my children. The website itself was really easy to use, offered free delivery over 10 pounds and had a lot of online offers like showergel for 1 pound, so ordering and delivery was hassle free and a positive experience.
The toffee apple shampoo costs 3.99 for 250ml and contains 97% natural products, so I feel that it's money well spent, as I would rather spend a little bit extra and have peace of mind that it's not doing the kids any huge harm.
The first thing that you notice about the product is the smell...it's gorgeous! I love apple scented shampoo, but this is one better, it's apple mixed with caramel and when I've washed the kids hair with it I just want to keep smelling it, much to their annoyance!
The pale green shampoo comes out of a tiny slit in the top, which means that the product trickles out slowly but I find this an advantage, as my oldest boy who's 4 can even get the shampoo out himself on his hand without the whole bottle ending up in the shower. The shampoo is no tears, and this is definitely true, if the boys get it in their eyes they don't even complain...a miracle!
The shampoo also adds gloss and conditions slightly, more than enough for my boy with straight hair, but for my curly-haired boy I have to put a little bit of conditioner in or I still can't get the comb through.
Overall I would really recommend this product and would definitely buy it again.
I discovered the Naked For Kids shampoo range in Boots earlier this year while trying to find something that would make it easier to deal with my 2 year old daughter's tangle-prone hair. Up until this point, we had been using a traditional baby shampoo on both children, but as her hair was growing fast (and she hates having it brushed) i decided that a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner would be worth a try. Initially, we had the banana and custard version which both kids loved, but last time we needed to re-stock, my daughter insisted on the Toffee Apple version.
The shampoo comes in a 250ml plastic bottle with a lid which partially pushes down to reveal a small hole that the shampoo is dispensed from. This is easy to use, even with two wet, excitable children in the bath and allows you to control how much comes out - something I find important when the children are insisting on washing their own hair! The packaging is clearly designed to appeal to young children as it has a picture of an apple with a child-like drawing of a face on it. It is stated that this shampoo is 97% natural and does not contain parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals or silicone - as a Mum, this appealed to me as I prefer to use more natural products on my children.
When using, the shampoo creates a good lather and is easy to rub through the children's hair. It rinses off easily as well, and they don't seem too traumatised on the rare occasions that it gets in their eyes, so I am assuming that it is a relatively gentle product. It is a clear colour with a slight greenish tint. Texturally, it doesn't feel any different from other shampoos. I find that the results of using this shampoo and conditioner are very good. My daughter's hair is much more manageable after using this product and doesn't require too much brushing to get it looking smooth and shiny. My son's hair is softer than before we started using this, although still has a tendency to stick up in the mornings! My favourite element of this product, however, is the smell - it smells like warm toffee apples and reminds me of Bonfire Night! I just love snuggling up with my clean children, reading bedtime stories and inhaling that delicious scent.
The Naked for Kids Toffee Apple shampoo costs £2.99 in Boots. It is also available in two other flavours - Bananas and Custard (also smells great) and Jam Sandwiches which the kids like, but I am less keen on.
Overall, I think this a a great hair product for kids. It even inspired me to try out the Naked range of adult shampoos for myself (slightly less impressed by those but that is another review). It is natural, smells good and works effectively - you couldn't really ask for much more! We will definitely be buying it again in the future - the kids will demand it.
I have been using Halos and Horns for my daughter but on a recent trip to Boots I came across Naked for Kids. A bottle contains 250ml of shampoo and costs £3.05.
This product is a 2 in 1, so it also contains conditioner. The bottle is see through and inside you can see the greeny coloured shampoo. The lid corresponds with the colour of the shampoo. There is also a picture of an apple on the front with a smiley face. The bottle also states that the contents are 97% natural. The back of the bottle also states that there are no sulphates, parabens, petrochemicals or silicone.
The shampoo is also vegetarian and vegan friendly.
To use the shampoo you simply apply to wet hair and lather before rinsing well with clean water. You only need to use a small amount of this shampoo to get a really good lather. The shampoo has a lovely burnt toffee smell with a subtle hint of apples. It rinses out really easily without leaving any residue.
My daughter is only 5 1/2 months but when she was born she had an awful lot of hair. It has grown a lot since she was born too and has a tendency to get knotty at the back. After using this 2 in 1 my daughters hair was a lot easier to comb than when I have used previous shampoos. After drying her hair it looked shiny and clean.
I would definately buy this shampoo again, I have bought the other 2 in the range. I prefer to use products without chemicals.
