There I was on a Friday night watching Shark Tank. Now that we have kiddos our Friday nights have seriously gotten out of control. It usually consists of Thai food delivery and a DVR’d Shark Tank episode. Every episode I either say “that is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard” or “WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?!” Well, this one night I thought “I NEED THAT!” Hot Tot – an organic, all natural salon quality hair product for kids. I needed this product. I am a conscious mama when it comes to buying hair and body products as well as food for my littles. I was absolutely horrified when I found out how much junk Johnson and Johnson crams into their baby products. I actually brought my own baby wash to the hospital for when they were born and asked for the nurse to not use Johnson and Johnson. I acted as if it was going to burn my babies skin! That’s the most extreme thing I’ve done with my kids. Shouldn’t we be using the best on our kids? Why are we (the U.S.) using ingredients that are banned in other countries? If J&J can make just as good a product for Europe, why can’t they do it here? I just don’t get it, but it does upset me.
Then, there was Megan Gage, founder of Hot Tot. Hot Tot is an organic and all natural baby hair and styling product line for kids THAT WORKS. My daughter has some serious hair that I wish I could cut and put on my head. The problem is that she wakes up and it is a tangled, curly mess. She has the most beautiful curls though so I try to embrace it. I have tried many different types of kids hair products; both natural and not. The problem with so many products is that the term “natural” is used loosely. There are usually a few hidden ingredients that actually don’t make the product as natural as you think. I want a product that uses safe ingredients for my children. I also want a product that will work on both of my kids hair. BG has curly, thick hair and BB has finer, flyaway baby hair. Could there actually be a product that works on both my kids?
Best Mom Products did a video interview with Megan. It’s long, but I think you’ll enjoy it if you truly are interested in how her product started. At about 24 minutes in she talks about the importance of natural and less harsh chemicals for our children. If that is important to you, scroll to the end. Otherwise, watch all of it if you have time. Click here if you want to see her Shark Tank debut.
Listening to Megan talk on Shark Tank made me excited and anxious to try her products. As soon as I received Spotless Tot I decided that my kids needed a bath even though it was 12:30 in the afternoon. The result? Phenomenal. Not only was BG’s hair easy to brush out, but it smelled amazing! When I talked to Megan about this product line she said that she had a Cabbage Patch doll in mind when she was formulating the scent. She nailed it. It seriously brought back childhood memories for me. Now I have my very own, life size Cabbage Patch doll! Too bad mine talks back. wah. The other thing I love is that BG’s curls always have so much BOING in them when I wash with Spotless Tot. The curls bounced right up once it dries. It is so dry here in Vegas that BG’s hair usually frizzes shortly after she leans back in her car seat, but her hair stays curly, soft and frizz free after using Hot Tot. Below are pictures of my daughter’s hair going from wet to dry. I didn’t even have to scrunch her wet hair to make it look like this. Just brushed it out without any crying and let it dry.
What about BB’s hair? Once it was dried I kept noticing that I wasn’t constantly brushing his alfalfa strand down and his pretty blonde hair was so shiny. I thought it was just a coincidence, but after washing his hair 3 times with Spotless Tot I noticed it every time. I switched one night to an old shampoo just to compare and once again, that alfalfa piece sprouted right back up. The wash is gentle and lightweight, so I don’t know how it manages to keep his hair down, but it does so I’ll take it! Shiny, manageable, smells delicious, and easy to brush out….that’s actually more than I could have asked for.
Brushing a child’s crazy, tangled mess can be a major chore. Hair products can get expensive, but once you try Hot Tot you will continue buying it. All of the products are made with formulas that are organic, natural, and made with your little one in mind. Hot Tot products contain antioxidants that protect your baby’s hair from harmful radicals and oxidation damage. I can’t find a single flaw in this product. The beauty in Hot Tot is that every product can be used on all your kids and you really will notice a difference. I actually noticed my kids hair looking better after multiple washes. I believe it’s because the shampoo was also working out residue from previous shampoos. Hot Tot products are a definite “must have” for making your baby’s hair soft, shiny, and manageable. I think I will be adding some shampoo into my baby swag bags for friends!
