Pigeon Baby Shampoo – 700 ml
Pigeon baby shampoo is a transparent very light yellow colored liquid.Â I like the fact that it has no added color or fragrance. It smells faintly of coconuts in a very nice way.Â It also contains some natural ingredients like Rosehip and Chamomile Extracts and Olive oil.
ItÂ cleanses babys hair well, without ripping off moisture from hair strands. It effectively cleans oiled hair and leaves my kids locks soft and shiny. It does not lather crazy like other shampoos.
Hair may not always feel very soft during the wash, but on drying, hair are soft, more aligned and almost tangle-free. So I found this shampoo gentler than the other Hair and Body washes we have used.
Coming to the “Gentle for daily use and Suitable from birth” claims, its a shame how baby brands make such claims. I mean who would shampoo their babys hair daily A babys skin is 6 times thinner than adults up to the age of 6 months and anyways kids and babys skin is able to easily absorb anything you apply. So who would like to subject their baby or kid to chemicals on a daily basis.
The “suitable from birth” claim is also rubbish. Pigeon baby shampoo contains preservatives in the form of parabens as well as phenoxyethanol and I personally would not consider that safe for an infant. To be honest, four and a half years ago, I have also used such bath products for my baby when he was born, as I was not aware of these chemicals then. But now I am aware and choose more carefully.
So parents, please be sensible when shampooing your babies and kids. I wont recommend this or any shampoo for daily use, but every parent knows whats best for their child. We use it once a week.
Apart from that, it is much milder as compared to other famous brands in the market like Mothercare etc which are full of far more shitty chemicals and preservatives.
We have used a few other brands after this shampoo and find that Pigeon Baby Shampoo is very good and mild. It keeps kids hair soft and shiny. We found it much better than some other shampoos and washes we have tried.
