Like any other tween girl, my daughter is really starting to get excited about beauty products. Our collection of lotions, body sprays, perfumes and hair products has grown at astronomical proportions over the last year. I am always concerned about the types of products that she is using and try to guide her towards things with natural ingredients whenever possible. It is sometimes a bit of a struggle to find products that are natural but also geared towards kids her age. She isn’t a little kid anymore but she also isn’t a grownup. Well, I was recently sent some shampoo and conditioner for her to try from b-real and these products seem to be a great balance between her wants and mine. If you haven’t heard of B-Real, here is some information about them from their website:
b-real products is the leader in all natural personal care products especially formulated for young people. We know that being a teen is hard and you shouldn’t have to use harmful, nasty products to get clean and smell good. b-real is committed to using the highest quality ingredients that are nourishing and beneficial for great skin and healthy hair. We want you to be clean and be YOU.
b-real has quite a nice selection of products for your kids including shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion. They are all natural, 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Every product is manufactured in a carbon-neutral facility in the USA with recyclable packaging. They contain NO parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils, silicone, synthetic fragrances, dyes or GMO’s.
For my review, I was sent the Freakin’ Fruity Chick Shampoo and the Freakin’ Fruity Chick Conditioner. The shampoo is made with botanical essences of vitamin B, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit and sassafras. It is designed to add moisture, volume, and is color safe. The conditioner is made with a blend of vitamin E, coconut oil, shea butter and jojoba oil. It strengthens, de-tangles and controls frizz.

My opinion: My daughter instantly loved the b-real shampoo and conditioner just because of the name alone. She felt very hip and cool using hair products that had the word ‘Freakin’ in it. While I might not like my kids talking with attitude like that, the concept of her shampoo having attitude just grabbed her. She says the shampoo smells like Popsicles and absolutely loves it. I tried it out myself just to see and it really does smell yummy! The shampoo makes a nice light lather and the conditioner rinses cleanly away without requiring a ton of effort….which she isn’t going to put in to rinsing her hair. It was nice that she didn’t come out of the shower with her hair still slick from conditioner residue. There is a very light scent to her hair right after rinsing but it faded quickly. I got a comb through her hair easily so it works fairly well as a detangler and we have had no issues with frizziness at all.

Overall, my daughter and I have both been very happy with the products we were sent. I will say that my son tried it out too and was equally happy. He would, however, like to see the company come out with a product a little more manly looking.
