We didn’t realise that what we were putting on our kid’s skin went into their bodies
In 2015, and probably a little before that, Mr Hair Helper and I were looking at our eating habits, and what we were putting into our mouths (which in turn goes into our bodies). We’ve made some considerable changes to our diet cutting back on as many processed foods and high sugar foods as possible, and trying to increase our veggie intake.
In chatting to friends, and other Mummies on similar journey’s, I really wanted to take it a little further. In particular to things we were using for cleaning ourselves and our home. This is an area which we’ve probably still got a way to go, however, one product that has really made us feel like we are on the right track has been Child’s farm shampoo. Hair, and keeping it looking good is obviously very important in the Hair Helper household.
Natural ingredients to avoid irritation
We are fortunate enough that our children don’t suffer from eczema, but I was on the hunt for something without all the “nasties” in. Child’s Farm was highly recommended by a couple of Mums so we decided to give it a go. Child’s Farm has 98% natural ingredients, no parabens or SLS’s, and is fragranced with essential oils. My children’s hair smells just divine once they’ve had their hair washed. We’ve been using the Strawberry and Organic Mint shampoo for just under a year now, and I have to say that both my children’s hair is in great condition. Their hair looks clean and shiny once it’s all washed and dried, and I have the assurance of knowing that nothing harmful was put on to their hair or skin. We’ve also found that we don’t need to wash their hair often either, which is great as we know that we aren’t damaging their already lovely locks by over-washing and heat drying their hair.
A firm favourite in our bathroom
We like the Child’s Farm brand for lots of reasons, not only the above. We like that they have ethical practices and don’t test the products on harmless and vulnerable animals. We also like it, as it was started by a Mum with a goal in mind. A goal to look after her children’s skin and hair while having something that looked appealing…and from there she decided to share it with the world.
Thank you Child’s Farm for a great range of Child friendly products in every sense of the word.
We’ve yet to try some more of their other products, but I think the bubble bath is next on the list!
