Has anyone used Johnson & Johnson's baby shampoo on their own hair? I was reading about how there are 3 different types of surfactants in shampoo and the most gentle of which is called amphoteric shampoo. Johnson & Johnson's Baby shampoo is an amphoteric shampoo. So I went out and bought the 'No More Tangles for Curly Hair'. I used it this morning and, while it was very different, I really, really like it! It has a lovely, very light scent and my hair hasn't felt this soft in ages. My hair is baby fine and prone to oiliness. It's currently damaged by being lightened/bleached too much at the salon so I'm used to it feeling less than soft. Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with it themselves.

Hmmm... my experience was totally different to yours, Vannanners. I bought the tangle free version and thought if I use baby shampoo, it would be gentle to both my hair and scalp. But unfortunately, I was so wroonnngg!! It left my scalp itchy and made my hair very dry and dull looking. I couldn't believe baby shampoo could be so harsh as I have tried many shampoos before and none has left my hair so dull and lifeless. I guess some J&J shampoos are not all that mild and gentle after all. I find most drug store brands gentler to these. I now use my baby shampoo to clean my make-up brushes/sponges!

Yep tried it too- when I ran out of Tail n'Mane about a month ago, I don't know how they can label that stuff for babies, my scalp was so itchy.

I tried the Johnson's original formula and one with lavender. Both made my hair dull and and soft, but not in the silky soft way, more like after-bleaching structure-less soft. But it makes a very nice body wash.

LOL! I just bought some today! Mainly because I have thick hair and will be having oral surgery and do not want to deal too much with my hair in the healing days!

I did the same thing!! (we may have similar hair types I would describe mine the same) I think at first it works great to get out the extra oils and build up from whatever shampoo you had been previously been using.

After a while I did notice it wasn't as great as the first few washes. Find 2 or 3 shampoo/conditioner combos you like and alternate them, that way you continue to get that look & feel you love from the first washes and you dont ever have too much build up from one type!
