Many of us women, no matter whether we are relaxed or natural, have babies and toddlers who are natural. For relaxed women, some of us have been relaxed for so long that we often question what we should do with our kids' hair. I personally have two boys with very thick, curly hair and like most of all the other women I know, I love how my kids' hair looks when it is wet. When it is wet, it looks perfect! But then it completely dries and we have a completely different situation on our hands.
After having my second son (the one featured on this post), I noticed that every time I would shampoo his hair he would get the worst dandruff and severe cradle cap. I could literally see him beginning to break out. This lead me to actually turn the bottle around and read the ingredients. Until this point I simply trusted the brand's name and never questioned them. However, once I began to research the ingredients in them, what I found shocked me! I found sodium hydroxide which is used in relaxers to the hair straight, sulfates which are extremely harsh and irritating to the scalp, and quaterium 15 which is also know as FORMALDEHYDE which is used to embalm dead bodies! Really?? I could not believe companies were putting this stuff in products that were targeted to babies. No wonder my baby was experiencing so many issues with is scalp. After literally going to the store and looking at every baby product's list of ingredients and not finding ONE that did not have harsh ingredients in them, I decided to make my own. This is what lead me to create the Baby Collection of by L. Jones.
