Baby Shampoo?

We've all heard about it, but how many adults have actually tried to baby shampoo? It's mild and tear-free...so if it's good enough for a baby then it should be good enough for us....right? I've been using CVS baby shampoo for a week or so and it's.......okay...that's it. It really gets my scalp clean, but I found the shampoo to be kinda stripping...It does have a sulfate in it, but sodium trideceth sulfate is said to be a mild detergent.
Here's the ingredients of CVS Baby Shampoo:
Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-8 Sorbitan Laurate, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, PEG-150 Distearate, Fragrance, Polyquaternium-10, Tetrasodium EDTA, Quaternium-15, Citric Acid, Yellow 1o, Orange 4.

I'm gonna use it a few more times before I give it a final verdict. Stay tuned.

Hey girl,

Thats an interesting post. I remember going to my dermatologist to consult for a bald spot I had back then. We were discussing the baby shampoo topic and he advised me that adults shouldn't be using it as they are stripping because it is made specifically for young babies to remove a film that can be found very often on a toddler's head.
