Each year we all become a little more ingredient-conscious. Buzz words like organic and all-natural trip off our tongues with greater ease and the hair care industry has taken notice. As Kids’ Hair Experts we’ve always been concerned about the products we’re using on your kiddos’ locks.
What’s inside our salon-quality, kid-friendly line of Snip-its haircare products? The same thing that’s always been there: Ingredients you can actually read!
We use a variety of extracts, oils and parts of plants as natural alternatives to harsher chemicals developed in labs to make sure our products work well and are safe and gentle for your little ones.
