Is it easy to use in long, thick hair?
I've tried several other natural brands of shampoo for my 3 year old and I find it's so hard to get a lather going and work it through since her hair is now so long and full. Regular shampoos are much easier to use but I'd still prefer to use a natural product if I can find a suitable one.
Also, is the conditioner good for getting out the tangles? We haven't had all that much success with the natural conditioners either since her hair has grown.

Unfortunately t wasn't any good for my hair- halfway down my back and very thick. You need heaps to get a good lather up. I didn't find it any better than other natural Sh and cond hair just got greasier and greasier until I gave in and bought some with SLS in. Tried Sukin, MooGoo and a woollies natural brand (made my scalp crawl). Aside from Evo (a hairdresser brand- still has heaps of ingredients but no parabens or SLS) that is $40 per bottle :/ I haven't had any success. Am back on the Herbal Essence... Wish there was a good one for us with lots of hair!!
i do use it on my kids tho (2.5 and 8mo). Neither of them have long hair but because theirs isn't oily it works really well.
A hairdresser friend of mine recommends Burts Bees though. I haven't tried it due to the cost :/ lol.

I use 'only organics' for my daughter, it comes in a bottle with what looks like a barbie on the front... It works well but my DD has thin short hair but it lathers like crazy!

My hair is really thick, it is now shoulder length but I was using my moogoo back when it was mid back length. I love it, my hair is always soft
and smooth when using it. I always comb through my conditioner to get rid of tangles and it works well. The shampoo doesn't lather up lots as it doesn't have a lot of the chemicals that normal shampoos have that do this, it does get a better lather if you're hair is really wet tho, so I put te shampoo in my hands and run together whilst hair is under shower then lean my head forward our of water and massage shampoo through straight away.
Another thing to help with detangling is coconut oil, I use about a tablespoon and massage through the ends of my hair before washing and it really helps keep it from getting too fly away and knotty
