I just stumbled across this range of hair care products for kids. Eco.Kid’s key points are that…

“Kids’ skin is not Adult skin, most importantly a kid produces around 6 times less oil than that of Adult skin! It is young and sensitive to synthetic perfumes, colours, preservatives, heavy film-forming conditioners and commercially used surfactants.

Prevention is better than cure™ – prevent split ends and tangles – prevent dry scalp and cradle cap – make hair unattractive to head lice – prevent dry skin, skin irritation, skin flaking and sensitivity – prevent pollution of our waterways and planet…”

If your kids are in school by now these ORGANIC & Biodegradable products could be just the thing for preventing head lice ( my cousins seemed to have nits for most of their primary school years!), or if you are having troubles with a toddler who HATES having her hair washed like me, you may be on the lookout for something like this…



Eco.Kid Daily Tonic Leave in Conditioner spray.

>3% pure essential oils.
Synthetic and paraben free formula
>97% wild harvested/certified organic/pure plant essences

No synthetics
No sulphates
No artificial preservatives
No parabens
No silicone
No anchovies


What it is:

Daily Tonic is enriched with naturally derived moisturisers and bio-polymers that add strength and shine to young hair. It contains a rich ultramarine polysaccharide called “chitosan”, which creates effortless combing and gentle hold. Daily Tonic helps promote a healthy scalp and has natural anti-dandruff capability.

Daily Tonic is an all-in-one product for shape, protection and care. It separates into two distinct layers when not in use because we refuse to use synthetic chemicals in our formulation to get the two components to stay fused. All that is needed is to shake well before use. Daily Tonic contains no artificial preservative, colouring or fragrance, is proudly readily biodegradable and waterway friendly.

What it does:

Daily Tonic is rich in plant-derived moisturisers that naturally bind and sustain moisture to nourish away knots and tangles. It is incredibly effective as a detangler and promotes a healthy shine.

eco.kid’s Daily Tonic contains 3% pure essential oils. These plant essences contain natural phyto-chemicals which assist against head lice in two ways:

The natural marine bio-polymer contained in Daily Tonic has excellent film-forming properties.

It gives hair the additional strength it needs, coating individual strands with a flexible, homogenous, non-flaking film for perfect styling and protection from external influences.

Our research proves it gives increased bending strength of between 5-12.5%, reduced combing damage and substantial cuticle protection against moisture loss and environmental damage.³ The results are excellent in terms of appearance and feel: shiny hair, healthy ends, excellent shape and hold.

The bio-polymer used in Daily Tonic also has anti-dandruff effects due to its ability to inhibit the growth of “Malazessia furfur”, which is the naturally occurring dandruff causing fungus found on the skin.

Daily Tonic envelopes the hair shaft in a protective film, which helps hold fly-away hair down that lice love to use for transfer. It is totally water soluble, however it has exceptional binding properties to the hair which helps make hair unattractive to head lice.

Prevents fly-away and fluffy hair. Head lice use these loose hairs as a primary source of transferring from one head to another without the need for the two heads to ever come into physical contact. ³ Source Cognis International.”


Gotta get my crazy haired Eva-girl some of this good gear!
