Killer H&B Products: What are you putting on your kids skin and hair?

Over and over we hear statistics about how children need to improve their eating habits, but they also need to be shown and taught that what we put on our body and hair is just as important as what we put in it.

Our bodies and hair absorb everything and for children the toxins can be even more harmful!

What are some of your natural hair products used for kids?

Do you feel the natural products work better or just as well as the main stream products?

i used to use shampoo and have relaxers but my hair would usually break off really bad. I then decided i would wear braids but they were often too un comfortable to wear and they always made my scalp itch and i would get those nasty bumps around the edges. I finally decided to go natural and not use any chemicals *harsh ones at least for the next year. it started with a hair cut and then i had to go natural, like afro natural. My hair dresser introduced me to a product called deva curl and i started seeing a big difference. It doesn't lather so there is nothing to strip the hair and it caused my hair to curl up. Now my hair is 3 times as long as it used to be in the back in just 6 months. I can be versitile with it but.... keeping my hair natural is the best decision i'd ever made.

The fact that an alternative remedy is classified as a natural substance does not suggest that the remedy should be considered safe for human use. There are many natural substances that are known to be dangerous and too toxic for human consumption or exposure. The well-known substance “strychnine” taken in its natural state as found in the Nux Vomica trees of Southeast Asia has been used in the past as a medicinal treatment. However, excessive human exposure to strychnine in most cases will be fatal. Humans are also known to exhibit very strong allergenic reactions when exposed to the natural oils found in the plant poison ivy. For obvious reasons it should be clear that natural substances safety should be investigated before proceeding to develop such materials into products for health related purposes. Of course, this is not to say that natural remedies may not be effective alternatives to treat many health related afflictions as opposed to conventional drug regimes since much is known nowadays about the biological affect that many plant and fruit extracts have in enhancing the human immune response. Much reliable scientific data in the literature strongly suggest that the use of standardized green tea extract shows promise in the prevention and onset of many cancers, and the use of saw palmetto berry extract has been used clinically for many years in Europe to help in the control of "Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia" (BPH).

FYI, not sure what "PETROLATUM" you are referring to but Petroleum jelly is not flammables as listed on MSDS.

Natural products all the way. Our babies skin is delicate and new. Don't ruin perfection with chemicals.

Rule of thumb....if you can't put it in your body, you shouldn't put it on your body!

Have y'all read some of the ingredients that are in some of these products? My wife has a hair cream that has petrolatum in it. PETROLATUM, a flammable ingredient. I avoid any product with it. Waterfall, I agree with you; olive oil, coconut oil, and shea butter are so good to my skin. I have a product that has olive oil, shea butter, and almond oil in it and is wonderful.

I used what I thought ws a mild perm in my daughter's hair called Just For Me. It had a child on the box, it's a popular perm and do to the fac that I've been doing hair and getting paid to do so for several years I felt comfortable puting it in. This perm broke my babies hair off so bad and so fast that it shocked me! My neighbor purchased one and used it in her daughters hair and it did the same to her. It left me wondering justwho was it for ?

By far, natural products work better because they don't contain the toxinx, additivies, alcohol or peroxides that most products contain. I use a wellness company called Melaleuca, most of the products contain tea tree oil which has 7 natural properties, natural fungicide, germicide, insecticide, kills staph, e-coli, candida, samonella. Store bought products have to have the additive to preserve shelf life, which in return destroys our lives slowly when we use them :-)
