Johnson’s Active Kids Soft & Smooth Shampoo Review & Swatch-
My hair has been more lifeless & drier than usual & nothing seems to work well on it (blame the last highlights I got done :-/). I thought I would try out the milder variant from the newer kids’ range from Johnson’s- the soft & smooth shampoo & ordered it online to see if it would help my hair out.

As a baby grows up, it becomes important for parents to find perfect, age-appropriate products for their kids. We at JOHNSON’S® have come up with an easy solution with the JOHNSON’S® Active Kids shampoo range, that tackle sweaty, smelly, rough & tangled hair at this stage!
JOHNSON’S® understands that as your child grows, their hair also changes and needs its very own special care. Even though your little one is active, her hair is still delicate and more prone to damage compared to an adult’s hair. It is likely to become sweaty, smelly, rough & tangled due to oil, dirt, & sweat, especially during play time.
JOHNSON’S® has created the Active Kids range of shampoos, a JOHNSON’S® hair care product range specifically for kids aged 2 years and above. This mild, irritation-free range of JOHNSON’S® Active Kids shampoo is made with a NO MORE TEARS™ formula to be as gentle to the eyes as pure water. It has an easy lather to make bathing hassle-free and is 100% clinically proven to be mild and gentle.
Price: 95/- INR for 100ml & 175/- INR for 200 ml.
My take on the Johnson’s Active Kids Soft & Smooth Shampoo-
This new shampoo comes in a cute transparent orange bottle with a flip-top cap which is both easy to use & travel with. The shape of the bottle is the typical tear shaped johnson’s bottle.
The shampoo is orange in color, with a runny, thin consistency & I needed quite a lot of shampoo for my scalp & hair to foam up the first time (I always oil my hair beforehand). I had to shampoo thoroughly twice to get rid of all the gunk & oil & my hair finally felt clean.
I did not use any separate conditioner the first time I tried this out and though my hair felt nice & soft, I had to tug a lot with my comb to get all the tangles out & my perpetually dry lengths & ends were not too pleased. My hair was a crow’s nest when it dried with all my frizz sticking out & I had to tame it finally with a dollop of serum. I always use it with my usual conditioner after that.
This shampoo is really too mild & I used up the entire bottle in 3-4 uses 😐 I don’t fully understand why as SLES is a prominent ingredient here which is supposed to clean thoroughly. Oh well, I suppose it is targeted for the less greasy scalp & more delicate hair of kids? 😛
The shampoo has a sweet, mild fragrance which I did like & it lingers for sometime after washing the hair.
Pros of the Johnson’s Active Kids Soft & Smooth Shampoo:
1> Lovely orange transparent bottle with a flip-top cap for easy usage & travelling.
2> Makes hair soft & sweet-smelling.
3> Mild on hair.
4> Has a lovely sweet & mild fragrance.
6> Does not sting eyes.
7> Paraben free.
Cons of the Johnson’s Active Kids Soft & Smooth Shampoo:
Did not serve my purpose of cleaning scalp & making hair soft & smooth 😐
Contains such a lot of chemicals!
Swatch of the Johnson’s Active Kids Soft & Smooth Shampoo-
My Rating: 3/5!
Do I recommend the Johnson’s Active Kids Soft & Smooth Shampoo?
Johnson’s Active Kids Soft & Smooth Shampoo is a very mild & sweet smelling shampoo but neither cleans my hair very well or smoothens it as per its claims. It might work better on kids’ delicate scalp & hair but personally speaking, I would never let my kid near a product loaded with so many chemicals!
