As we progress through the tween years, H is becoming ever more independent and for a long time now he’s been showering or bathing on his own and being expected to shampoo his hair, etc. Increasingly there is a concern about how he looks whether it be what he’s wearing or his personal appearance. We haven’t got as far as hours in the bathroom yet as he still needs reminding to shower, but I don’t suppose it will be that far away. So I’ve been keeping an eye out for suitable products for him to use: something fun, not packed with chemicals, but which still does a good job.
Mazuri got in touch and sent us their Original Kids Haircare Range to try ou I love the fun packaging and H hasn’t objected yet to it being a bit pink, possibly because the contents aren’t pink (mostly). Developed by mums for kids, the Mazuri kids range is made with natural olive oil, coconut and honey and offers a gentle hair care solution for children aged 6 and above. This appeals to me as you often find baby products that are gentle, but often children’s products are full of the same chemicals as adult products.
Mazuri Kids Olive Oil Shampoosie Moisturizing Detangling Shampoo, RRP £2.97 was the first product we tried. It’s been developed to be a soft, mild and creamy detangling shampoo to gently wash hair and nourish scalp and it’s made with hydrating olive oil, honey and aloe vera extracts. For me it has a fresh, fruity scent and a nice, smooth consistency. It seems to have done a good job on H’s hair too as I think when his hair gets a bit longer, it can be a bit dry, but the shampoo seemed to help with that.
Next we tried Mazuri Kids Olive Oil Buttercup Conditioning Oil Moisturiser, £2.97 This aims to replenish lost moisture, strengthen and leave hair soft, shiny and manageable and it’s made with shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil. This had a similar fruity scent, but it was a little less intense. Again there was a nice consistency and it seemed to do a good job on dry hair.
Gel is quite a thing with H’s friends and cousins, so I wondered if he’d like to give Mazuri Kids Olive Oil Cutie Patootie Styling Gel, £2.97 a go. It’s formulated to lock and hold your hair in place with a blend of hydrating olive oil, coconut and vitamin E. It has a lovely fresh, clean scent that you don’t always get with gels and a hold factor of 8.
