What it is and what it is for?


Children's hair requires rigorous care as it is more delicate than that of adults, requiring a lot of care and that is why we must always choose the shampoo and conditioner that we are going to use. Children's shampoos, in addition to having a wonderful smell, contain a fine texture and make a lot of foam, it serves to remove the chemical and dirt accumulated in the threads, leaving them clean and shiny. The shampoo interacts with the hair's oil ensuring its removal.


The conditioner helps to detangle the hair's knots, leaving it silkier and repairing the damage caused on a daily basis. It makes your child's hair much healthier. In case of curly hair, there are conditioners that help to define your child's curls.
We must always pay attention to the child's hair type when choosing the conditioner and shampoo, as it can cause scalp damage or unwanted irritation.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


There are several types of ingredients in these products, ingredients like ammonium chloride or sodium to make your child's shampoo or conditioner look creamier and feel more pleasant for the user. We can also find silicon-based oils such as dimethicone and cyclomethycaine to moisturize your child's hair, preventing irritation on the scalp after removing all the grease and dirt from the hair.


Ingredients such as DMDM hydantoin, sodium benzoate, isothiazolinone and methylparaben are the most used to keep the shampoo always valid.


Modifiers, ingredients that improve the appearance of the shampoo, that is, they offer color or texture to the product.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


Milky shampoos are the ones that provide a gentler cleaning. They are usually used in specific treatments, such as for dandruff or other scalp problems.


Pearl shampoos are recommended for daily use on most hair types, they can only be ineffective on very oily hair.


Clear shampoos are more effective than milky and pearlescent shampoos, but not as aggressive. Mainly indicated for oily hair, they are quite efficient without causing hair dryness.


The anti-residue shampoo, of all the above, is what promotes the deepest cleaning. As such, it is suitable for very oily hair. However, their use should be limited, as they can more easily cause the hair to dry out.


Common conditioners to moisturize hair, restoring lost oils and nutrients.
Finally, conditioners that do not require washing are fine and light and quickly hydrate and protect hair after washing. These products are usually sprayed after washing and do not require further washing.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


As a rule, children's shampoos and conditioners contain a package with some kind of design, in order to captivate children as well.
Shampoo and conditioner packaging suffer little variation, usually in a bar, bottle or dispenser, and there are also sprays.
Its most frequent amounts are 200ml/250ml, however, they can vary between 125ml or even larger formats such as 500ml.


What to take into account when choosing children hair products?


When choosing hair care products for children, we must take into account several aspects, because although most people think that as it is for children, they never make allergies, it is not quite like that.


We must pay attention to things such as: the composition of the product, the pH, the aromas and colorings, for what age it is indicated, among other things. This is all for your child to grow with hydrated and healthy hair, taking the chance of any damage to the hair or scalp and allergies. You should also take into account the child's hair type and whether the chosen product does not irritate the child's eyes.


It is a question of many why adults cannot use a children's shampoo or the other way around. They cannot use it because children's shampoos have a pH (potential of hydrogen) around 7.0, as the pH of children's scalp is also around 7,0 and 7,5.


The adult hair and scalp pH is around 4.5 and 5.5. That is, when adults use children's shampoos frequently, the hair becomes dry due to the fact that the hair cuticles are always too open.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


You should wet your child's hair well and then apply shampoo or conditioner. Gently massage from the scalp to the ends until it forms a lather. Rinse well and if necessary, repeat this operation.


As for conditioners, if they are sprays, spray onto wet hair and brush gently for best results. When applying the conditioner, do this only on the length and ends. This prevents the scalp from becoming oily. Take the time to untangle your hair.


Allow the conditioner to act for the time indicated on the product packaging and then rinse well, until the product is completely removed from the strands.


What are the pros and cons of using children hair products?


With the right use of shampoo and conditioner, hair care products for children will leave their hair healthy and look great, giving the necessary pH to the child's hair, which shampoo and conditioner for adults would not.


However, if the correct one is not used for its age or if some chemicals harm the main purpose of the product, it can trigger allergic reactions. In these cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful.
