We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier?

Kimberley said: "It makes my life easier, I feel at reassured knowing the products are gentle and suitable as well as practical and great for curly hair. The amazing smell is an added glorious bonus and one that you keep smelling off your children for hours after. Not to mention the bathroom smells lovely and I can use it as well so if we are away I don’t need to take several products."

Gabriella said: "Both of our children have beautiful blonde curls, but they also both have very dry hair and it is very difficult to brush due to their curls knotting up. The shampoo and conditioner gave them both very sleek soft curls, which lasted about 48 hours before another wash with the shampoo and conditioner was required. We have found their hair has lasted longer before requiring washing again with my little coco."

Nicola said: "After every use, I found the products left both my newborn and toddler’s hair feeling very clean, soft to touch and smelling amazing between washes. The products left both my daughters’ hair tangle-free, and notably, my toddler’s dry and curly hair was visibly less frizzy after one use. All the products were easy to apply/use, though as expected I found the conditioner required slightly more rinses (to ensure it was fully washed out) due to its thickness. My toddler also suffers from eczema but I found that none of the products caused her (or my newborn) any irritation or adverse reaction."

Would you recommend this to other parents?

Nicola said: "The most exciting part of this product is that it noticeably improves the appearance of my daughter's hair after each wash. My toddler's hair not only looks and feels clean, but her otherwise dry and curly hair is visibly smoother and less frizzy. The tropical coconut fragrance smells divine and lasts in-between washes."

Kimberley said: "The smell is a really big draw in for me, and it does add moisture to dry and curly hair, making it more manageable at a price that's affordable for regular use. It's suitable for the whole family; I will definitely be buying this going forward. I love that there is a whole range, with the three products so I can look after my children's hair and make my life easier by using all three."

Gabriella said: "The size of the bottles is great and easy to travel with vs other brands where the ml’s are higher. You only need a small amount for the shampoo to lather up brilliantly, but we found we needed quite a bit of conditioner as it was so thick on the children’s hair."

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Kimberley said: "The brand is lovely for both children and adults - with the various characters on the bottles, it brings the range to life. The packaging is also really simple to use but very clear who the product is suitable for. It has a beautiful smell without feeling over fragranced, so you are not compromising or potentially causing any irritation to your child's skin. I love the size of the product, and my children find it instantly recognisable, so they know when I use it, it isn't going to sting their eyes."

Gabriella said: "I am a big fan of Child's Farm, but I'm not sure it is completely different to anything else on the market. It does have competition with my little coco shampoo and conditioner and Asda little angels for the hair detangler. We have tried all three brands and will likely stick to Asda little angels detangler at a fraction of the price with the same results as the Child's Farm detangler. Unfortunately for us, we found the Child's Farm detangler had an odd medical smell to it and didn't leave a nice fragrance behind after using it. It did help massively with our children's dry curly hair, and the comb went through no problem, but the fragrance just puts us off."

Nicola said: "Designed to nurture and nourish curly and dry hair, I found these products did exactly as described. The products are made with ethically sourced natural and naturally derived ingredients and did not cause any irritation/ reaction to my toddler's sensitive skin. Unlike other products I have used, I found the products worked well with my toddler's dry and curly hair and left her hair feeling clean, soft and frizz-free. The products also left both my toddler and newborn's hair smelling amazing in-between uses."

What changes would you make to this product?

Gabriella said: "It would be great to see a runnier consistency to the conditioner as mentioned above - it was thick and hard to get a good cover for the children. We also stopped using the detangler spray as we just didn't like the fragrance it left behind after using it, that might just be us and that we have used a different brand of detangler for so long that we are too accustomed to that one, but I don't think we will make the switch on it."

Kimberley said: "I'd really struggle to find something to change, the packaging is really easy to use, appealing and self-explanatory, and I know I can get all the product out of the bottle, so there's no wastage. I like the product, both the smell and as a hair cleaning product. So at an absolute push, it would be to make it slightly cheaper, but I wouldn't want to compromise the product, so I'd be more than happy to pay the price it is."

Nicola said: "There is nothing I would change about this product. The design, smell and, most importantly, the end results were fantastic. It worked well with both my newborn and toddler's hair and my toddler did not experience any irritation or reaction to her skin/ scalp despite her sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
