Disclosure: I was provided Hot Tot Shampoo, Conditioner, Curl Serum and Detangler to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
If you had asked me three years ago what I thought about hair care products for toddlers, I probably would have laughed and said that aside from shampoo, a toddler didn’t need any special hair care products. Then my daughter was born with a glorious head of curly hair, and as she got older the need for special products quickly became apparent.
Over the last few months, we (yes, WE) have been using Hot Tot hair products. Hot Tot is a mom-invented line of hair products designed with a toddler’s needs in mind. Made in the USA with natural ingredients, Hot Tot is a home run when it comes to salon-quality haircare that is 100% safe for children. Not only do the products work, but they smell SO GOOD.
Because the products all smelled soooo amazing, I decided to try them out along with my daughter. I adored Hot Tot Shampoo’s rich lather, and the sleek shine and softness the conditioner gave our hair. Ingredients like rice extract, green tea extract, lavender, sea kelp and aloe vera give children’s often fine hair fullness and volume while taming frizz and promoting manageability.
While the conditioner definitely helps in the detangling department, my daughter’s curly hair sometimes needs some extra help. The Hot Tot Conditioning Detangler is made with green tea and Vitamin B-5 and has the most amazing, fresh powder scent. It works wonders on wet or dry hair to detangle even the most stubborn tangles and knots. I know the spray is meant for my daughter, but I use it every single morning! The smell is incredible, and I love how well it conditions and detangles my hair without weighing it down.
My absolute favorite Hot Tot product was the Sweet Pea Curl Serum. It is a lightweight curl-defining cream (with yet another yummy scent) made with white tea and jojoba oil that can be used on either damp or dry hair. It also doubles as a phenomenal frizz-buster. I use the serum on my daughter’s hair to give her curls some extra love and a little oompf between shampoos. I also use it on my own damp hair, and let me tell you….it’s a dream come true. I’ve spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars over the years searching for products to give me gorgeous ‘beach waves’. I never in a million years would have thought that my 2 year-old’s curl cream would turn out to be ‘the one’. Now I can’t imagine styling my hair without it!
Hot Tot has quickly become a regular part of our hair care regimen. I love that my daughter and I can share products, thus cutting both costs and clutter! Hot Tot products are definitely on my list of mommy must-haves!
