Top-Rated Baby Shampoos
For new parents, your baby is one of the most important things in your life so you’ll be doing everything to keep them healthy. Once your little one has some hair, one of the most important things you can do for your child is to start shampooing their hair regularly to keep it clean, healthy and tangle free. The only problem is that there are quite a few options available on the market but not all of them will produce the same results. Some are much higher rated than others because they don’t contain chemicals, are safer or promise to be tear-free.
California Baby Shampoo & Bodywash
One of the top-rated products is also one that is very easy to find in stores: California Baby Shampoo & Bodywash. This is one of the many products available that is gentle enough to be used on both your newborn’s head and skin so you will not have to buy more than one product.
The shampoo and bodywash combination comes in two varieties, calming and sensitive, both of which contain no chemicals or added scents for your young one’s comfort. Some moms have reported that this shampoo and bodywash also helps eliminate dry skin.
BabyGanics Foamin’ Fun Body Wash & Shampoo
If you are looking for a fun way to get your child clean from head to toe that is also highly rated, this is the shampoo and bodywash combination for you. This shampoo is designed to let you and your baby play with the foam as long as you want; even allowing you to create fun hairdos out of foam. The great part is that even if you spend a lot of time in the bath with BabyGanics, your baby’s skin won’t dry out.
Sfree Emu Oil Cleanser Shampoo
has a complete line of sulfate free shampoos. Why is this important? Sulfates and parabens (preservatives) can be harsh and harmful to gentle baby skin.Sulfate-free shampoos are often your best choice for the first several years to avoid cradle cap, irritation and rashes that can be caused by shampoos with sulfates. As a note, sulfates are used as surfactants. Surfactants create the foaming and bubbling; but while fun and giving you the feeling and sensation of superior cleansing, they can be too harsh for baby's sensitive skin.
Another reason why we like Sfree Emu Oil Cleanser in particular is that its formulated with Emu Oil - a common ingredient in many skin healing products. While growing in popularity in the U.S., it is very popular in Australia for its natural moisturizing and skin-health properties.
Bella B Bee Gone Cradle Cap
Cradle cap can be a big problem for some babies and it can be hard to get rid of. If you are looking for a top-rated baby shampoo that will help get rid of your child’s cradle cap, this is a great option. It will get rid of the problem and keep it away, all without making your baby’s hair oily.
Another plus of this product is that like most baby shampoos, it can also be used as a bodywash to help keep your baby clean from head to toe.
Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash
Another great top-rated shampoo, whether or not your child has cradle cap, is Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash specifically designed for babies. Moms love the irresistible and all-natural scent that is combination of calendula flower and essential oils.
This product does not produce too many suds, so if you are a mom looking for minimal suds it’s a great option. It can also help with cradle cap and other skin irritations due to its naturalness. After using it, your newborn’s skin will feel silky smooth, clean, moisturized and be protected from any chance of drying out.
