*Mixed Chicks Kids Tangle Tamer
In the past we have reviewed Mixed Chicks products before, of which i purchased and if interested you can click here and here to reflect on our prior review of the Mixed Chicks Conditioner (adult one) and Mixed Chicks Hair Silk respectively. For a long time i had interest in reviewing this set here but have had no luck until now and during that time Ive stumbled upon lots of reviews on all sides of the spectrum so i was interested in how these would work for us.
I will begin with the Mixed Chicks Kids Shampoo
Finally, a tear free, gentle, natural, safe shampoo for our kids. Now you can wash tender scalps daily without fuss.
Water, Lauryl Glucoside, Disodium Cocoamphoacetate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Sodium PCA, Glycerin, Caprylyl Glyco, Caprylo Hydroxamic Acid, Citric Acid, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil
silicone free, sulfate free, paraben free, protein free
Scent: Slightly Citrus-y
Texture/Consistency: Light/Medium weight/Transparent
Cost: $13.00 per 8oz
-Slight mild fragrance
-Immediately strips my daughters hair of its nourishment
-Leaves my daughters hair coarse
-Must apply lots of conditioner/moisturizer after use immediately
I've been using this for weeks now and I believe that this shampoo has both good and not so good attributes... Id say that this is a kid friendly product which is a must when using products on children specifically. My daughter did not complain about it at all, It has a light and fresh scent which she did rave about. Its consistency was pleasing to us being on the lighter side. I feel that is a bonus because my daughter has thin and fine curls/waves which cant handle heavy products. On the other side of the coin i cant help but notice the immediate feel of my daughters hair after i apply the shampoo. Instead of feeling squeaky clean or even somewhat slick her hair felt so dry and brittle. I mean it was shocking, it seemed like i put in a chemical :( So upon repeated discovery of this result i tried to experiment with different methods/combinations and such and found out that it works best and is less harsh when i rinse immediately. The longer it sits on her hair the worse off it gets. My daughters hair is just not able to benefit from using this shampoo, so Ive since passed it on to a friend. I conclude that I'm not exactly satisfied with this shampoo for my daughters hair, it just doesn't do great by us.
Up next is the Mixed Chicks Kids Conditioner
A natural formula that leaves hair soft & manageable. Now mom and dad can comb though kids hair with ease.
Aqua/Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Glyceryl Stearate, glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba), Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius, Safflower Seed Oil, Panthenol, Capryly Glycol, Caprylohydroxamic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita, Matricaria Flower Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Prunus Serotina (Wild Cherry) Bark Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract
Apply to wet hair, comb through and rinse.
To style and tame frizz, follow with Mixed Chicks Kids Leave-in Conditioner.
-Texture has the right mix, being an in between a liquid and solid in nature
-No fragrance and i cant even smell a lotion-y smell that you'd usually get with a fragrance free product
-Smooth and applies generously with a little amount
-Produces a nice shine after use
-I can feel its immediate affect of softness
-The pump is defective and doesn't pump good
-The ingredients aren't great
-Not a natural product
-Its conditioning effect lasts for a short period
I believe that this conditioner is unique in comparison to many others we've tried and it can do a nice job on competing with a shampoo that is more harsh on the hair or maybe a clarifying shampoo at that. When i applied this conditioner i could immediately feel it softening my Divas hair and the longer i left it in the softer and bouncier her curls got. I used a curl cloth to soak up the excess moisture from the bath that is left on her curls and i would put her sleep cap on and her hair stayed light, flowing and curls bouncing with sheen for an few days with minimal frizzing or poof-ing. This was something that occurred over the use of the conditioner. The only thing that threw this off for me as being a super great conditioner was that isn't a completely natural product and i have to pump the bottle 15 times to get the amount i need to cover her hair. This product worked best for me when i used another shampoo before using it in place of the above mentioned shampoo. I cant complain about it not being suitable for children or harsh in any way because its passed the kid approved stage with my Diva and its eye friendly, scentless applies nicely. I will keep this one around for back up.
Designed for our little ones. This styling product is colorless...alcohol, fragrance and paraben free, with no harsh chemicals.
Last is the Mixed Chicks Kids Tangle Tamer
Worried about what to do the next day with your little one's nest? Our light, moisturizing formula revives bedhead and gives wild hair a fresh look.
You can use Mixed Chicks Tangle Tamer many ways
Aqua/Water, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Capryl Hydroxamic Acid, Fragrance
Here are two ideas:
1. Spray generous amount into hair, comb through tangles, then style...or even fashion hair into a pony tail. This works great with hair that already has our kids leave-in conditioner worked in.
2. For stubborn tangle-areas: While wet, spray a generous amount into hair along with Mixed Chicks kids conditioner, comb through, then rinse.
Scent: Alcohol-ish with a hint of citrus
Texture/Consistency: Slippery liquid
Cost: $13.00 per 8oz
-Good ingredients overall
-Non oily/non greasy
-Clear and not filled with gunk
-Generous plume type mist
-Non kid friendly scent (rubbing alcohol smell)
-Dissolves quick when sprayed
-Little steep in cost for the quantity that is sprayed each time/Contents of bottle
-More adult like in nature
I am surprised to note that after months of reviewing this product i am still at a loss for words when i am trying to describe it. I was happy initially that this product didn't have bad ingredients in it. I've never really had much luck with detanglers so i was hoping that i couldn't compare this one to the many bad aspects in others that I've tried before. I read that this tangle tamer is a versatile product and so of course i put it to many tests as i do with all products we test and i notices that this one doesn't leave an oily after effect and her hair doesn't feel greasy nor do my fingers after application so i could apply this root to tip easily with no worry. BUT just as quick as i applied it to her wet hair (since this is the only way that we could get it to soak in efficiently) it seemed like it just evaporated or absorbed and didn't feel/appear existent in her hair. No matter what i did whether in combination with the other Mixed Chicks products i just couldn't get this one to last... I'm thinking that the alcohol content in this is very high. I will be passing this one on as well. I'm not able to provide a good recommendation for this product.
**Overall i am very thankful for this opportunity to review this set as for some time i have wanted to review it. I didn't have much expectation as i try to go into every review with an open mind i also do not let what others say or think influence my reviewing. I review honestly from my heart and through my experiences and I'm glad at least one of the products from this set worked good for us. I never let products go to waste that do not work for us good :) I always find them a good home.**
