I have always battled tremendously with my 2 daughters' fine hair. It seems to mat into clumps overnight like wet Saint Bernard fur and no amount of brushing seems to keep it looking good. We have resorted to once-a-week marathon brushing sessions which literally take 1½ hours to get both girls' hair under control, while they watch a movie and my arm breaks off!

I bought a hair bean which has helped with the screaming of  "ow ow OWWW"  every morning but eventually I found Eco.Kid Daily Tonic.

It is in a great easy-to-use spray and doesn't work like other leave-in conditioners which make their hair dull and oily. It has a bit of a weird smell which the kids don't seem to mind but apparently a nifty side-effect is that lice don't like the smell, so the little pests tend not to attach to hair smelling like this product (told you it smelled weird!)

It is organic and has green-friendly, organic certificates to their credit.  Their website states that it is 82% organic which seems a bit weird - what is the other 18%?

Unfortunately I paid the hefty fee of R230 for this product at the kiddy hairdresser that we go to. I have priced it elsewhere and the pricing seems to be the same wherever I look, so shopping around doesn't seem to help.

It is imported from Australia along with a range of other hair care and body products, bubble baths etc I get really grumpy that we have to pay more to reduce the chemicals we ingest through our skin, what about people who can't afford to make these changes?
