I like this brand a lot and I think it is a very good product to buy. Johnson's have been on the market for a very long time and are a gentle range. I bought this shampoo for washing my baby grandchildren's hair when they sleep over at my home regularly. The shampoo comes housed in a plastic bottle, the shampoo is a rich light mauve coloured liquid and not a runny consistency. It is really soft and has a very smooth texture to it. It has a really nice lavender smell and I can smell the lavender as soon as I flip the lid back. Very nice smell I must say. I like it a lot and it is a lot different to the normal shampoo from Johnson's range. The bottle is easy to hold to pour the amount needed onto the hand. Means you don't have to try and juggle the bottle in the hand. Only a very small amount creates lots of foam and bubbles on the hair, too much of the shampoo is not necessary with this one because too many bubbles on the hair takes a lot longer to rinse from the child's hair and then may cause them to cry etc. The smell remains on the child's hair for a very long time after it has dried. This one leaves my grandchildren's hair feeling really soft and easy to comb or brush without it being all tangled etc. It is a soothing smell and a nice shampoo to use for a night time to help relax the child. My baby grandchildren are tend to like this one used for their night time bath. It leaves their hair with a really nice shine to it and this shampoo lavender essence and also contains vitamin E and honey, nice natural ingredients for the younger members of the family and babies. It nourishes the hair and just leaves it manageable. I have even tried it on my hair and it has left it feeling in a good condition. I tried it because I liked the smell of it. It is a good quality shampoo and good value for the price at around £2.30 for a 500ml bottle. Because only a tiny amount is needed it means a little of the shampoo goes a very long way and so saves a lot of money in the long run. It is an extremely gentle shampoo and suitable for new born babies as well as older children in the household. It hasn't irritated the scalps of my grandchildren and I am happy to keep on buying it in the future. I highly recommend this one for anyone who has young children and are looking for a nice gentle shampoo. If you don't like the smell of lavender, this one may not be so suitable because the smell is noticeable as soon as the lid is flipped back but it is a subtle smell and not too strong. After using the shampoo, the bottle can be recycled. I rate it 5 stars.
It is recommended that you should change your shampoo from time to time as different shampoo has different ingredients and switching between brands will help you to clean the residue on your hair. Because of this reason, I have quite a few bottles of shampoo lying around in my bathroom and I keep trying out different brands. However, Johnson's Baby Shampoo Moisturizing Formula with Honey and Vitamin E is one of those few which I will repurchase from time to time. On a side track note, my hairdresser told me that there is no different in terms of power of cleansing between the expensive and inexpensive shampoos and the baby shampoo can do its cleaning job well. Packaging There is nothing special about the packaging. It is the typical Johnson's baby product type but its orange colour helps it to stand out on the shelves. The shampoo The shampoo is a bit thicker than the other Johnson's baby shampoo. It means that it is less easy for it to slip out of your hands while creating the lather. Personally I do not like shampoo which is too watery so this one suits me well. The shampoo smells a bit fruity and it will stay in your hair for some time after rinsing. I do think that the smell is a bit strong if it's for the babies but I am an adult so I don't really mind. Anyway, it smells good! As the product is designed for babies, it is very gentle. It will not hurt much even if the shampoo accidentally runs into your eyes. The result I have thick shoulder-length hair and I find that my hair a bit less frizzy after using the shampoo. I like to blow dry my hair so I usually use the hair conditioner after shampooing. Having said that, I do feel that my hair is a bit less frizzy and easier to manage after applying the shampoo.
My hairdresser told me, ever so kindly, that my hair was distressed (due to too much swimming and ten years of gunk for dancing exams and shows) and that I needed to change shampoo. This was nothing new. Almost every time I get my hair done, the person snipping away tells me this. First it was “don’t use Pantene as it coats your hair in plastic” then “never try Wella” (for some reason I’ve entirely forgotten) and most recently “Neutrogena Clean and Clear will ruin your hair for life”. As you can see hairdressers appointments are always fun occasions for me….. Still, last time, instead of telling me what not to use, Little Miss Hairdresser came up with the solution. – baby shampoo. It was, she said, the only thing soft enough for my hair to take. As I’m sure I’ve said before, I like brands. This means that although she said baby shampoo, this for me meant Johnson’s. Since I don’t have blond hair I didn’t need the Camomile version, and since I had the generic yellow stuff as a baby, I went for the Honey one. Facts: According to the website (johnsonsbaby.com) this is a Shampoo Moisturising Formula with Honey and Vitamin E enriched with natural honey and Vitamin E. Containing the NO MORE TEARS® formula it is extra mild and as gentle to the eyes as pure water, leaving hair soft, shiny and easy to comb. It will not irritate baby's delicate skin and eyes during normal use (hmm, while we’re on the subject, what is normal use? And would it irritate during none normal use whatever that might be?) and is clinically proven to be gentle and mild. Soap-free and alcohol-free, it is also allergy- and dermatologist-tested How to Use (as if you didn’t know) : Wet hair, apply shampoo, lather and rinse. Repeat. When to Use During bath time, use to clean baby's hair and scalp . (silly me, I never knew shampoo was for, well, cleaning hair) Ingredients : Water, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Glycerin, Disodium Lauroamphodiacetate, PEG-150 Distearate, Sodium Laureth-13 Carboxylate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Fragrance, Polyquaternium-10, Citric Acid, Honey, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Quaternium-15, D&C Brown No.1 and FD&C Yellow No. 6 Phew, well at least they are not doing the “aren’t we posh” aqua thing as so many firms are. Out of those I understood only a handful, namely “water, “citric acid” and “honey”. It sure takes a lot of ingredients to make something as mild as pure water….. My Experience I like this shampoo as it does leave my hair baby soft (and not as distressed as previously). It lathers well so you don’t need much and the honey means it smells great – the only big problem being that there are no accompanying products so the smell is often masked by whatever conditioner etc you do use. It’s nice and cheap, especially from Tesco who often have it on offer, and lasts for ages. It’s available in 250 ml and 500 ml bottles, from Boots, supermarkets, chemists etc. I think I’m OD-ing on Johnson’s at the moment – I have the wipes, the lotion, the oil and now the shampoo. Tesco even sent me extra vouchers in their last mailing, and instead of being for bread, chocolate o magazines as normal, they were for baby products. Am I on my way to becoming a 19 year old Johnson’s baby? Maybe, but who cares? I love the stuff :-)
