The 9 Best Shampoos for Kids

Safe ingredients, non-toxic recipes, and effective formulas. Sound good? Read on for our picks of the best shampoos for kids that reach these standards and more.

Options for Organic Kids Shampoo

Organic certifications are one of the highest standards for botanicals and many other natural ingredients. However, organic doesn’t always mean safe or effective. After all, many chemicals and toxins are still organic compounds. That’s why we’ve curated our own top picks for the best organic shampoo for kids. To these brands, organic means a high standard of safe and gentle ingredients.

For example, Vivaiodays features organic aloe juice and chamomile in a tear-free formula. It’s use of organic soapwort extract allows it to remain well-foaming, giving your child a fun cleansing experience. Second, Odylique provides another formula rich in organic aloe juice added to soothing calendula extract and housed in a recycled and recyclable bottle. Third, Hello Bello offers a hypoallergenic formula with nourishing marshmallow root and organic jojoba extracts. Lastly, Babo Botanicals Sensitive Baby Shampoo is hypoallergenic as well; made with oat proteins and shea and cocoa butters to ensure a gentle cleansing and effective moisturizing.

For another option, Weleda’s Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash uses the gentle cleansing properties of calendula oil to provide kids with a formula that’s effective and chemical-free. Also, Alaffia focuses on ethically sourcing ingredients for a fun coconut and strawberry scented wash. It’s also full of nourishing coconut oil, making it a great kids shampoo for curly hair.
