Zippity Doo Children's Hair Products Review

Growing up with 5 siblings we had our fair share of run in with the dreaded four letter word……LICE! Eww!!!
I worry about when my children get to be school age and I have to deal with the chance of Lice. So I was ecstatic when Zippity Doo invited me to try their line of children's hair care products that also prevents lice I was very interested!

Zippity Doo’s™ children’s hair care products are mild enough for daily use, provide health benefits to the hair and scalp while helping prevent lice infestation.

Zippity Doo sent me their entire line of hair products which included:
• Zippity Doo's Shampoo for children
• Zippity Doo's Conditioner for children
• Zippity Doo's Leave-in-Detangler for children (love this!)
• Zippity Doo's Styling Gel for children
• Zippity Doo's Shield Spray for children

Although my children don't go to school yet, it is still a great product to have on hand! Not only do these products come in fun colors and packaging, but they also smell good. They don't smell medicated at all! The shampoo and conditioner is great to use during his normal bath routine and the fact that it also prevents lice is a major added bonus!!! I also love the detangler! A must have in our home. I also shared this product with my sister who has two school aged sons and they gave the product 2 thumbs up!!

Here is the list of stores that carry Zippity Doo products. Crossing fingers that prevention is the key!

  1. I was intrigued and somewhat alarmed when I came across a press release issued by Zippity Doo's, a line of lice prevention products created by Laurus Enterprises which are now being carried by Target Stores. The release states, among other things, that "Zippity Doos products are paraben/sulfate free and that they do not use alcohol in their products, an important feature for concerned mothers."

    I run a head lice removal business. As you may be aware, there are a lot of damaging products out there, especially when used on children (the most frequent consumers of lice related products). It is important that more natural products be mainstreamed for the safety of our children. I was excited to read this announcement and so I immediately went to the company's website to learn more about the products. When I pulled up a list of ingredients in the products, you can imagine my surprise when on the Zippity Doo's shampoo the first ingredient is Sodium Laureth Sulfate. This product also contains methylparabens as do all of the other hair products produced by Zippity Doo's. The Zippity Doo's Conditioner and Spray Shield all contain Alcohol. How can they claim to be “paraben/sulfate free” or that they do not use alcohol? This is extremely misleading for consumers.

    There are many other ingredients in these products that are not particularly natural, but I have a big problem with the company's claim that their products do not contain certain ingredients when they actually do. How does a major corporation like Target overlook something like this? Did anyone read the list of ingredients and/or did someone fail to do their due diligence when researching this product? This is blatant misrepresentation. At the very least, please be honest about the products you are choosing to carry.

    Parents care about their children and these are issues that are very important when making choices about lice removal and prevention. Parents are willing to invest in products that they believe are safe for their children. This type of marketing is preying on that known fact. Consumers want products that are safe and effective. As a major national retailer, it is important that Target not knowingly market false claims to American consumers.
