Default Does anybody use baby shampoo?

It seems like the ingredients in baby shampoo would be curl-friendly and similar to low poo.

I was just going to ask the same question! I keep seeing baby shampoo and am tempted but I remember reading or hearing that is was the wrong ph or something for adult hair. Is that true? or is it a hair urban legend. I have read reviews on Makeup Alley and some use it and love it. But I am not sure if they are curlies/wavies. Any help is very appreciated!

I don't know but my father used it to the day he died. Almost. Than again, he was pretty bald.

We were shocked when he started putting gel in his hair.

He was no metrosexual lemme tell ya, total nerd!

If the ingredients are the same, how can the pH be different? I always thought the problem was that they wouldn't cleanse the stronger gels, conditioners, etc., out of hair. The same would then be true of Low Poo, wouldn't it? I just would love to spend $3.99 for shampoo rather than $8 + shipping, or more. I know there's something in the CG book about baby shampoo...

I use diluted and love it. It really helps with greasy scalped people like me.

You have to look at the ingredients.

my doctor told me NOT to use any baby or adult shampoos with things like SLS or SLES or SMS.

So, it's really important to read the ingredients labels on your shampoos and conditioners as well as your stylers.

Great gentle shampoos & conditioners by Aubrey Organics are all natural and more importantly sulfate-free.

HTH!

I haven't seen any traditional sulfates (SLS, SLES) in the Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo. Have I missed something? It seems that there is a lot of misinformation out there on the internet in general, so I'm not sure where this anti-baby shampoo thing is coming from.

Nobody on this thread has been anti-baby shampoo...or said there were sulfates in Johnson's. The post about them is just to say to always check the labels of anything. Go for it!

There's a new Johnson's baby shampoo. It has lavender in it. Here are the ingredients:
Water (Eau); Cocamidopropyl Betaine; PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate; Sodium Trideceth Sulfate; PEG-150 Distearate; Fragrance; Polyquaternium-10; Tetrasodium EDTA; Quaternium-15; Citric Acid; Ext. Violet 2.

It seems to look okay. But what is the Sodium Tredeceth Sulfate? That is the only ingredient I am iffy about.
