The other day i was asked by a friend if i wanted to try out a new shampoo. As someone who loves to try different products i quickly said yes and snatched the bottle out of his hands (figuratively speaking, of course!)
The shampoo of by a brand called eco.kid. Their target market is, as you would expect, children, and their aim of the shampoo is to get rid of "the baddies" in your (or your childs) hair.
I was given the "prevent" shampoo, but after researching, they do a fairly big range of products. Their uniqueness is that its organic, contains no sulphate and is said to help get rid of lice.
They also do ranges in body, protection and face.
They Say: "prevent is an eco-balanced cleansing system that is idea for everyday use. It is specifically formulated with pure botanical oils to help prevent head lice"
it states on their website, that although they are aimed at children, the shampoo is suitable for the whole family.
I'm not a massive fan of the packaging, and the smell is extremely sweet and smells very much like lemon sherbet, so if you don't like sweet things this won't be for you.
How important is it that you're getting organic ingredients?
Downsides? One or two..
Firstly, ive not seen it in the local chemist or supermarket, and most of the places i've found it online aren't all that cheap. The bottle i have is 250ml, if i were to buy it from their website, (after a small conversion) it would work out to be about £9.30 + P&P. The cheapest place i've seen it is on feelunique where it retails for about £8.50 with free P&P.
So, is it worth it? I'll let you know..
