My 11-year-old daughter has some unique hair care needs. She has thick, wavy hair that can be hard to tame — especially with traditional hair care products made for kids. In the past I let her use my shampoo, conditioner and styling products because they produced better results, but I secretly cringed at the thought of the parabens and other chemical found inside. I know that sounds a little crazy, as I use products with harsh chemicals, but, in my opinion, a growing child shouldn't be exposed to them. And for the record, I'm still searching for a good, chemical-free option for my own hair.
All of this leads to a non-toxic hair care company that I was recently introduced to called SoCozy, which can be found at Target.com and SoCozy.com.
SoCozy is the first ever salon-quality children's hair care line, designed by Cozy Freidman, to help parents effortlessly manage their children's hair. The full line of style and care products contain no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, propylene glycol, gluten, wheat or nuts. SoCozy is tailored to both the needs of moms and kids, and the brand encourages kids to express themselves through their own personal style, advocating that "being you is our idea of cool."
I received a variety of SoCozy products for my daughter to review, as well as compensation for this post (though our opinion is my our and not edited by SoCozy, please read my Disclosure Policy). When the SoCozy hair care line arrived, my daughter was really excited because she loved the styling of the bottles — basically she didn't feel like these were products for "little kids", though SoCozy is ideal for kids between 2 and 12 years old. Shhh.. I won't tell!
The scents were another feature she was happy about, with mango-go and berry-whip being two of her faves. The Cinch line includes two-in-one and three-in-one Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash to save time in the bath or shower. To keep tangles at bay, cult favorite Fruity-tutti scented Detangler + Leave in Conditioner makes brushing a "cinch." — it's one of her favorite products in the entire line and she now uses it on a daily basis.
Kids can express individuality through style with the delectably-fragranced Behave line of Styling Mousse, Cream, and Gel to define curls, create volume, and calm frizz.
And to prevent and treat the most dreaded children's hair issue—lice—the Boo! collection harnesses a proprietary natural formula including Tea Tree Oil as an effective lice repellant, in a fresh peppermint, lavender scented Lice Prevention Shampoo and Spray. We have yet to use these products, but I'm keeping them on hand for when the new school year arrives. We've unfortunately had lice on two separate occasions and I would do anything to prevent the nasty bugs from returning.
