i used burts bees for awhile, and my kids had hair like straw!!! so I went back to the cheap crap i buy at walmart. their hair is soft again, but I hate the thought of all the chemical crap I am using on them!!<br><br>
What else can i use, any suggestions? I have heard of california baby, but are those really natural?<br><br>

<a href="http://www.terressentials.com" target="_blank">www.terressentials.com</a> click on baby. Great stuff, though pricey it is completely natural and for me that makes it worth the money. Plus a little goes a long way.<br><br>

I won't buy california baby again because it has methyl/propylparaben. It says a very small amount but when there are options without it, I'll go with those more natural options instead. I don't like the paraben family of chemicals. Can read about parabens here:<br><br><a href="http://www.terressentials.com/truthaboutparabens.html" target="_blank">http://www.terressentials.com/truthaboutparabens.html</a><br><br>
What you can do if you want to buy an expensive one like terressentials but have a hard time thinking of spending the cash to buy it like you do your current soap, you can make it go further and get yourself a good foamer like this:<br><br><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-LIQUID-SOAP-FOAM-DISPENSER-SUDS-PUMP-FOAMER_W0QQitemZ4413229753QQcategoryZ25451QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-LIQUID-SOAP-...QQcmdZViewItem</a><br><br><br>
I have the foamer above and absolutely love it. It's pretty and works well. And it pays for itself bigtime.<br><br>
The soap lasts a LONGGGGGG time and makes it rather cheap to use expensive safer soaps <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> .<br><br>
I love this website: <a href="http://www.ewg.org/reports/skindeep2/index.php" target="_blank">http://www.ewg.org/reports/skindeep2/index.php</a><br><br>
you can look up the toxicity of the products. I keep getting pulled to weleda whenever I research a good non toxic baby product but all they have is a soap bar which I'm not into soap bars right now. I may go to terressentials next.

"Nettle Shampoo<br><br>
This shampoo cleans your hair without stripping all of the natural oils, because it has none of the harsh detergents of shampoos you are used to. All natural ingredients! No artificial thickeners, so it is thinner than you've experienced before. I just squeeze a little directly onto my scalp. My hair feels thicker and stronger since I started using this nourishment for the hair! Distilled water, saponified Coconut and Olive oils with retained glycerine, nettles, horsetail, comfrey, calendula, irish moss, lavender, rosemary, clary sage, jojoba oil, aloe vera and shea butter. 8 oz cobalt squeeze bottle."<br><br>
it's made by sarah at herbsfromthelabyrinth.com i love it and think it's worth the extra cost to buy it. if you do get it realize that it's very diffeent than commercial shampoo, you need to pour it into something to get it to you hair (the cap works fine for me) and you have to resist the desire to "wash it all out" as it does leave the hair feeling very different than regular shampoo. but i LOVE the results. (she can also make you something custom, if you are sensative to anything in her formula)<br><br><a href="http://www.herbsfromthelabyrinth.com" target="_blank">http://www.herbsfromthelabyrinth.com</a><br><br>
if you do get some from sarah, tell her i sent you....<br><br>

miessence desert flower shampoo. all natural ingredients and they are 100% certified organic to food standards.<br><br>
i really hate it when you buy an "all natural" product and you find ingredients that you can't even pronounce! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Druide's line. Especially on my little one. We've been using the same bottle of shampoo on her since she was born almost 8 months ago now, that's how concentrated it is. And they smell amazing!!
