Zippity Doo’s Hair Care Review and Giveaway!



Zippity header


Have you heard of this new shampoo?? I hadn’t until recently. They are genius! Zippity Doo’s came up with a way to help prevent lice from getting in your child’s hair. Which is huge, with the rate schools are getting it and spreading it. It is completely pediatrician approved.

You can use the Shampoo/Conditioner daily to help prevent, as well as the Detangler spray and Styling gel. Then when you feel that your child might be at a higher risk, such as sharing a baseball helmet, or combs, hair accessories, etc. You can spray them with the Shield Spray.  All products are:

  • Mild enough to use on a daily basis
  • Natural and not harsh treatments

So if you are thinking of sending your child off to summer camp this year… Think about using these products before hand. Did you know that 24% of Summer Camps had Lice outbreaks last year??

My kids have been using it for a couple weeks. They love the smell.. its not to strong or stinky. It works good in their hair, and still leaves it manageable and easy to care for.

Right now you can buy Zippity Doo’s at a few stores in New York. For the complete list go here. Or you can order it online at

We don't really do anything to prevent it because I don't really know how to but if our kids mention itch or we see them doing it we make sure to check them right away.

I make sure to style my children's hair personally each day to ensure I can keep an eye on their scalps.

Well, we don't do anything to prevent it yet - but that may be changing after reading this! I didn't even think about my son sharing a batting helmet with several other boys! Yuck!

I was intrigued and somewhat alarmed when I came across a press release issued by Zippity Doo's, a line of lice prevention products created by Laurus Enterprises which are now being carried by Target Stores. The release states, among other things, that "Zippity Doos products are paraben/sulfate free and that they do not use alcohol in their products, an important feature for concerned mothers."

I run a head lice removal business. As you may be aware, there are a lot of damaging products out there, especially when used on children (the most frequent consumers of lice related products). It is important that more natural products be mainstreamed for the safety of our children. I was excited to read this announcement and so I immediately went to the company's website to learn more about the products. When I pulled up a list of ingredients in the products, you can imagine my surprise when on the Zippity Doo's shampoo the first ingredient is Sodium Laureth Sulfate. This product also contains methylparabens as do all of the other hair products produced by Zippity Doo's. The Zippity Doo's Conditioner and Spray Shield all contain Alcohol. How can they claim to be “paraben/sulfate free” or that they do not use alcohol? This is extremely misleading for consumers.

There are many other ingredients in these products that are not particularly natural, but I have a big problem with the company's claim that their products do not contain certain ingredients when they actually do. How does a major corporation like Target overlook something like this? Did anyone read the list of ingredients and/or did someone fail to do their due diligence when researching this product? This is blatant misrepresentation. At the very least, please be honest about the products you are choosing to carry.

Parents care about their children and these are issues that are very important when making choices about lice removal and prevention. Parents are willing to invest in products that they believe are safe for their children. This type of marketing is preying on that known fact. Consumers want products that are safe and effective. As a major national retailer, it is important that Target not knowingly market false claims to American consumers.
