I bought this prodcut for my daughters wavy/curly hair that gets SUPER tangly from all the playing she does. She's 3 years old, and sitting down and getting her hair brushed is not a favorite past time for her (or me)! However, this detangler makes the job much easier and cuts the time in half. Also, she has very sensitive skin and ezcema, so we have to be very careful what products we use on her. She hasn't had any reactions to CAbaby and we love that it's all natural with no parabens or other icky chemicals! With drugstore.com, it was 20% off, [...]. GREAT DEAL!!

We received the sample size of this product as a baby gift, and loved the smell and the de-tangling abilities for our daughter's very straight, fine hair, so we ordered the full-size. All the properties are the same, but the smell is terrible. I will be returning it. I think it is old.

      Comments about California Baby Calming Hair De-Tangler, 8.5 fl oz:

      Aside from getting hives from this, I feel like you need so much to attempt to get through the hair it creates an almost sticky, greasy residue. If I didn't take a second shower to wash it out before bed, my hair would be more tangled when I awoke, than had I not used it. Plus, the residue attracts every dust mote or lint in the house, even as a very clean, neat person.
      I tried using it on my toddlers hair, and just having it airborn near me caused hives. Also, when she awoke from a nap, it looked greasy, was tacky similar to glue stick feel.
      Perhaps our hair is too fine, or got a terrible batch. I can't be sure.
      If you are sensitive to Lavender Oil, be wary.

      Comments about California Baby Calming Hair De-Tangler, 8.5 fl oz:

      I use this on my three year old daughter who had curly but extremely fine hair. For the most part, it works to get the tangles out if you use enough. However, it also leaves a bit of residue on her hair, making it less shiny and a little sticky. It might work better on someone with thicker hair.

        An amazing product that does just what it promises it will do. Tears, whining, fits and anxiety are all gone as soon as this is applied. The tangles literally fall away with no pulling or pain. Kids who have never let you touch their hair before, relax and enjoy having their hair brushed again. No other product even comes close to this incredibly calming and soothing de-tangler. It's worth every penny!

            Comments about California Baby Calming Hair De-Tangler, 8.5 fl oz:

            I was anxious to try some California Baby products, so I picked this up (along with their sunsceen stick) and was very happy I made the purchase. I'm very conscious of what I use on my daughter, and am quite happy with the California Baby line. This product in particular seems to work very well for us. I didn't like the smell the first time we used it, but it has since grown on me. It smooths my daughter's hair, gets her tangles out, and the BEST PART I noticed is her hair doesn't tangle as easy anymore. If it does become tangled, it is easier to get them out now even if we haven't used the product that day! Not only that, but her hair is just overall more manageable now, and easier to style (when we do). I absolutely recommend this product to other chemical-conscious parents.

              My daughter is mixed and has very curly hair. Having straight hair myself I had to learn that care of curly hair is entirely different. I love this product because I don't have to pull her hair in order to brush them. It smells nice, it's not toxic an as I live in CA, it is a local product. Love, love, love.

                  I use this on both my 7 year old daughter and myself. Our hair tangles VERY easy. I use it after a shower on damp towel dried hair. If you spray it in the hair, work it through a little bit with your hands and wait a couple of minutes it works better than if you try to comb it immediately. I only wait about 3 minutes. I wash my daughters hair every other day and found with other hair detanglers the second day the hair would be much worse. I find this spray smells good and doesn't cause buildup, bad smell, or worse tangling on the second day.

                        My daughter said "It calms your kids down while you brush their hair". It's great to use because "we love it" and it simply works. I used to spend too much time with my daughter's long, curly hair flung over the side of the tub, scraping the brush through it so I wouldn't rip apart my wrist brushing her hair along my arm anymore. Now, I spray this on, brush through and move on with the rest of the bedtime routine. Wish there was a spray for that!

                        We received the sample size of this product as a baby gift, and loved the smell and the de-tangling abilities for our daughter's very straight, fine hair, so we ordered the full-size. All the properties are the same, but the smell is terrible. I will be returning it. I think it is old.
