bronners makes a baby soap/shampoo. i put BS in the bath when washing my 2 yr old. its good for daiper rash and its cleansing.

Does she really need shampoo? I don't think small kids do unless they've actually got something nasty in their hair! My LOs, 8 and 5, don't use shampoo and haven't for years they just dunk their heads in the bathwater (no bubbles) and rinse well in the shower after the swimming pool. I stopped using shampoo and bath products on them because they were starting to get patches of eczema/dermatitis - which cleared up almost immediately and never returned.

hmm if dreads mature faster when clean, will the water itself suffice?

little kids hair really doesnt get that dirty unless its actually DIRTY lol. thats why i use baking soda in the bathwater and then wash her with that. only about 1/2 cup to a cup.

when my kids were little i rarely shampooed their hair. i think a good massaging on the scalp with water is just fine. if you really want to use a shampoo then california baby makes some good ones. they even have a tea tree lavendar one that would be good for lice prevention. they're a bit expensive but pretty concentrated so a bottle should last a while. oh and you can buy them at target.
