In a nutshell, yes an adult can use Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo, or any baby shampoo for that matter. However, you should not replace your shampoo with baby shampoo because the "tear-free formula” that has made Johnson and Johnson famous can make this claim because it does not contain soap. Rather, the "formula” contains ingredients known as surfactants. Surfactants help remove grease and clean your hair. These "wetting agents” also act like detergents by helping to reduce the surface tension in the water, which promotes the smooth spreading of the shampoo.

Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo contains several mild surfactants, which work together to clean your hair.

Baby shampoo also lacks foaming agents like those in the Laurel-sulfate / laureth-sulfate family. Obviously, the foaming capabilities are what creates the "lather” in adult shampoo, but it is this lather that can get into a child’s eyes and irritate them.

Now, this shampoo works for infants and toddlers because their hair does not get especially dirty; at least not in the way that the hair of adults does. First of all, small children do not have much hair, so baby shampoo is designed to simply help clean the scalp. Secondly, small children do not generally get a lot of soil and dirt in their hair. Third, small children do not use any chemicals to treat or style their hair. This is the reason why you should only use baby shampoo sparingly as an adult - because your hair needs stronger soap or cleaning agents, particularly if you use styling products or you treat your hair.

Baby shampoo is really good for your hair. If you use styling products on a daily basis or use them at all the baby shampoo will strip all of the residue of the products making your hair more healthy. It is also extremely good for sensitive skin.

It will be better for your hair, I think, because baby shampoo does not have the sodium/ ammonium laurel sulfates in it that most everything else you get at the drugstore has. You may need to use a greater amount than usual, though - those chemicals are foaming agents, and so baby shampoo will not lather very well in thick or longer hair.

You can, but remember they may not cleanse as well as other products...after all, they are made for a baby's skin, and they are not adults out in the world all day!!!!!!

Yes they can it won't hurt to use once in awhile!!!! But as an adult I wouldn't use it all the time because the hair follicles are different and and need that chemical to keep it from getting dry.

Yes it is actually very good for fine hair esp. Use the conditioner too since the shampoo doesn't have any in it.

If you have used the soap for awhile and show no sign of being allergic to the soap, I see no reason that you can not use it for you personal grooming.  If it is good enough for the delicate skin of a baby, it should be good enough for a 20 year old to use.  I've used baby lotion for my dry skin for some time now and find it very good.

Nothing wrong with Johnson's Baby Soap.....but look at the ingredients and youll see it's just castile, or olive oil based, so is very mild.....if you have oily skin, I'd try something else!! It's too much of an emollient for oily skin...if you have dry or normal skin, then it's ok...

Hmmm well it all depends on if you tried it yet, if theres anything problems with it...if the babys skin can handle it... My son did all right.... He was just tiny than, but it should be just as good. If they make it for babies. Than bammm should be no problem. If not than use some common sense,. Don't use it..:)
