I dont often write reviews but felt the need to give my experience of using this product.
I have a 4 year old who has severe eczema and sensitive skin. As a result of this I try to steer clear of any parabens, fragrance, SLS, artificial additive and preservatives. I picked up a small bottle of this product at my local health food store after doing extensive research into a product that contains nothing but natural ingredients. We have been using it for 10 days to wash her hair and she has had a severe allergic skin reaction to the product. She is covered from the waist up to and covering her face in a bad breakout of allergic urticaria/hives. I'm now having trouble controlling it with antihistamine and its driving her insane. I'm unsure what ingredient in the product has caused it, its not the coconut as we use organic unrefined virgin coconut oil on her skin and its never affected her as this has. I have a feeling it may be the Jojoba.
Before picking up this product we were using Naty eco shampoo and actually I think I will stick to that, whilst I am concerned about some ingredients it has never caused a allergic reaction with her skin.
I just wanted to advise that if you notice a rash appear when starting to use this product it may be cautious to discontinue use. It's very distressing to see someone go through such a bad reaction, let alone a young child. I wont be using this product again I'm afraid.
