Babies, like teenagers and adults all have different kinds of hair. Whether hair is thin, thick, curly, or practically nonexistent, as parents, you will like to have a simple answer for all of your baby hair care. Is that correct? The health of infants hair is as important as other physical areas of their bodies.
Some of you might like to see the first hair of your child grow as long as possible, especially for girls, while other prefer their babies to have short hair, regardless of their gender. I have seen some mothers who think that a baby is a great fashion accessory and regularly change the child’s appearance to compliment their own outfits and hairstyles.
Unfortunately for some, humans are not dolls; so it really isn’t kind to use your little one as objects to do what you like. It’s good to understand that hair needs time to breathe so keeping your daughter’s hair up in a tight hairstyle constantly isn’t healthy for it; my daughters usually prefer to have no hair ties and have a little freedom with it. However when it gets in their face while they’re eating pinning up the front of their hair is a necessity!
As moms, we often like trying different hair care techniques. No matter what you do, make sure to take into consideration what special treatment is required for the hair type of your child.
Even if your loved one has no hair, their scalp will benefit from a shampoo. This helps to avoid other common potential head issues including cradle cap. Your child will benefit from a shampoo twice a week.
No only can it give your precious little one style, but wearing a cute baby hat can protect her head from the sun. If your child has wispy and thin hair, specialized care is required.
Shampoo twice every week, but don’t forget to comb the hair. Do it gently and avoid wisps falling into baby’s ears or eyes. However, your baby’s scalp is very sensitive, so you must be careful and gentle while combing their hair.
For babies with curly and thick hair, it will be better using conditioner after shampooing once a week if their hair is too dry. Use a quality conditioner dedicated to baby care, one that is made from ingredients which are safe for infants.
For a more traditional look, a boy most commonly has a short hair cut. On the other hand, for girls, it is often practical to section long hair into ponytails and plaits to keep it from tangling.
So, what do you do if your child’s hair is thick and straight? Some cultures believe that shaving thick hair makes hair healthier. You don’t have to go that far but with that in mind, a frequent haircut cannot hurt.
Using a smooth, natural baby hair brush will encourage their hair to stay smooth and shiny.
