Here are a few natural hair products for kids that are easy to find and even easier to use. You may need to experiment with different products at first to find what works best for your child, so here’s our secret: buy the travel-sized product to test these out before you commit!
This isn't specifically a children's line, but the Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk products are easy to apply, comb through and wash out.

Honey Baby Naturals is one of our absolute favorites for kids. This line includes a gentle Shampoo, Softening Conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and Shea butter styling cream.

If you’re a fan of the Kinky-Curly line, then take a look at their Tiny Twirls products for kids. Some stores even carry these with the adult products as well.

Their Detangling Conditioner is also safe, natural and great for kids with tangles, knots, and dry hair.
Pros: organic, fragrance free, cruelty free
Original Sprout Leave-In Conditioner is all-natural and helps strengthen your kiddo’s delicate strands while keeping them tangle-free.

After conditioning, use the Natural Styling Balm for all your child’s cute hairdos.

Lastly, try making a refreshing spray for your child with some distilled water and drops of lavender oil from your local health food store. This spray can be used to refresh curls and even keep frizz down. Plus, the pleasant fragrance is natural, light and calming for your child. When looking for natural hair products for kids, making your own can be a fun and easy option!
