Hair Care for Babies and Toddlers

Hair Care for Babies and Toddlers

As babies grow, they develop in many new ways.  They become more active and grow their personalities. Everything from dirt to dinner will get its way onto his face and into her hair, which means you will need to become a pro at baby hair care, especially the cleaning part. Use these tactics to keep the method simple, quick, and whine-free. With this new exploration comes the need for a smooth hair care routine to manage the tangles and knots.

Here are some ways to do it:

Repeat the Cycle

Being careful to shield those eyes and give the head a thorough rinse. Leaving shampoo deposit behind actually makes hair dirtier, giving dirt more of a chance to stick there.

Guard his Eyes

No baby likes to get anything in their eyes, so put a visor on their forehead or rinse her hair while he is leaning back towards you so that you can avoid getting water in his face.

Shampoo and Deep Conditioning

There is no getting away from shampooing your child’s scalp and hair. If his hair is not too dirty, it is ok to wash it once a week or once every two weeks. You can alternate deep conditioning with a regular conditioner, preferably once a month. You can also apply baby hair oil to deeply nourish your baby’s hair. MAATE baby hair oil is natural and pure, just like your love for your little one.

Prevent Tangling by Brushing

Tangles in babies' hair are a problem. However, it is much easier to eliminate tangles when hair is dry, so detangle with a brush or wide-toothed comb before you place your little one in the tub for bath-time fun, and you will not have to tangle with tangles as much after.

Try to Make it Seem Fun and Happy

While most children will never love having their hair washed, so you should do your best to make it as painless and fun as possible. Sing a song together while you are doing it. Tell your little one that you are giving her a scalp massage as you lather the baby shampoo.

Styling the hair

Styling will be another crucial matter in the growth of your child’s natural hair. You will want to use protective styling to prevent harm to your child’s hair from harsh ingredients and breakage in between washes. The valid styling options for kids are twists, braids, puffs, and ponytails.

Baby and toddler hair is different from adult hair, and it needs very different products to keep it clean and healthy. It is important to use gentle products with gentle ingredients formulated especially for them. Try to use a shampoo that is enriched with conditioners for the delicate quality of your baby's hair. Compliment your toddler on his appearance and use positive reinforcement to encourage and promote grooming routines. With proper hair care, you can further eliminate tangles and make combing easier for both of you.
