Shaklee's Basic H2 is the most incredible product I have ever come across! It is sold as a cleaning product but it can do just about anything...from clean to be used as a hair detangler. And it's safe, green and concentrated so you only use drops at a time. It is safe enough to use not only around your children but on them too. I have bathed my kids in it!
