Popular baby hair care myths debunked

Your little angel’s requirements keep changing as they enter different phases of their life. One such changing part is your baby’s scalp. Haircare for babies is a lot more special than hair care for adults due to the delicate and sensitive nature of their scalp. Mothers often come across certain hair care tips and tricks but it becomes difficult to distinguish the myths from reality. It’s thus important to know what exactly your child’s delicate locks need and to give them just that.

Here we are to debunk the top myths that exist regarding your baby’s hair care.

  1. Shampoo your baby’s hair until it's squeaky clean

This is a common myth amongst mothers that washing your baby’s hair until it's squeaky clean is important. This can strip the delicate strands out of the natural oils produced by the scalp to keep the hair moisturised. Use a mild and natural baby shampoo like Maaté’s Baby Hair Cleanser. The gentle soap-free formula of MAATÉ newborn baby Shampoo conditions the baby’s scalp and cleanses the hair without stripping the scalp’s natural oils. Buy here

  1. Toddlers with oily hair shouldn’t be given hair massages

Mothers believe it isn’t a good idea to put oil on their toddler’s oily hair. Hair massages are always useful, regardless of the hair or scalp type. Still, you can use a light yet nutritious oil for your child like Maaté’s Baby Hair Massage Oil for added benefits of the natural ingredients. Check it out here

  1. Baby hair fall is always a serious problem

If your baby experiences hair fall, it isn’t always a reason to worry about it. Newborns shed hair after 2-3 months of birth to get rid of the hair grown during the gestation period. If your child experiences abnormal or very frequent hair fall, you might want to consult a doctor. Always use natural baby shampoo to curb hair fall and other problems. Buy Maaté’s Baby Hair Cleanser to experience the goodness of natural ingredients.
