As part of the Influenster program, I received a VoxBox from Johnson’s No More Tangles line for me to review. Within the package, I received 3 products: the Baby Shampoo & Conditioner for Thin/Straight Hair, Leave-in Conditioner, and Detangling Spray. Even though my daughter has curly hair, I still tested the products on her for three weeks to see how it would work on her tangles.
The Shampoo & Conditioner worked well enough to cleanse her hair, but I didn’t necessarily find that it helped eliminate tangles. I did like that it lathered up well and was gentle on her scalp. Because she has curly hair, I don’t know if I could technically construct a fair review of this product. However, I will say that it did not irritate her eczema, and that is a huge bonus to me since I just recently had to change all her skin care products for that exact reason.
The Leave-in Conditioner was a nice addition to her bath & beauty routine and I can definitely say that it helped tame her wild curls and made combing easier. I found her hair softer and more manageable on the nights that I included this into her bath routine. Ordinarily, we have to use a separate leave in conditioner anyway. The Johnson’s No More Tangles Leave-in Conditioner worked well enough that we will continue to use it.
The detangling spray was my favorite of all three products. Since we have been at the beach all Summer, we have been struggling with the salt, sand, wind and pool water tangles. The detangling spray has been a lifesaver. I have used it on Rosalyn’s hair almost every day and a couple times on my own. I use around 4-5 pumps on my curly headed toddler in the mornings to make her hair more manageable for styling and at night time, after using the Leave-in Conditioner, I will spritz 2-3 times. If she has several knots and tangles, like after a day at the beach, I will require 7-10 pumps to completely ease the combing process. Previously, I was using a spray bottle filled with water to aid with styling in the morning, but this detangling spray will replace it from now on.
Having previously discarded all my JOHNSON & JOHNSON baby products due to their ingredient list containing harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde and 1,4 dioxane, I was hesitant to use, let alone endorse, their products. However, I can, once again, use these products now knowing that in August 2012, Johnson & Johnson pledged to eliminate formaldehyde, parabens, triclosan, and phthalates from all their baby products, and in May 2013 announced that they had done so.
