Ways to keep your baby’s hair moisturised during the cold and dry months

The cold months of the winter season bring endless moments of tucking oneself in cozy blankets with your baby. You can cuddle with your bundle of joy, keep him nice and warm, moisturise the skin, but you may miss out on caring for your child’s hair. 

Your baby’s hair is delicate and very sensitive to weather changes. It can cause it to become severely dry, frizzy, and brittle.

We bring to you some tips on how mothers can keep the little one’s tresses soft and moisturised even during the dry and cold months.

  • Do not wash your baby’s hair frequently

Giving your baby a hair wash frequently is not advisable, especially during the winters. Shampoos can give the hair a hard time retaining moisture as hair washes can strip down the natural oils secreted by the scalp and hair, resulting in more dry and frizzy hair. Limit your baby’s head wash only once a week. Use the Baby Hair Cleanser by Maaté’ for adding benefits to every shower session of your child.

  • Hair massage to the rescue

Warm oil hair massages can be a treat to the baby’s hair and scalp. It has numerous benefits and helps keep the strands moisturised and nourished. Choose a nutritious hair massage oil for your baby like the Maaté’s Baby Hair Massage Oil which is the perfect blend of precious oils chosen from the lap of nature. Take a few drops and rub it between your palms to warm it up a bit, and give your baby a gentle hair massage that he needs. Check it out here.


  • Taming frizzy hair and knots

Frizz is common during the cold months as the hair loses its shine and moisture due to the dry weather. When a baby’s hair gets frizzier, it becomes prone to tangles and knots which could sometimes be difficult to deal with. You can take a few drops of a baby hair massage oil and apply it on the hair strands, while gently separating them with your fingers. Do not use a comb or brush to tug at the hair as it can cause breakage and hair fall.

  • Don’t forget the scalp

The baby’s scalp needs as much care and attention as the hair strands. If you see your child scratching their head, or notice white flakes on the hair, this could mean the scalp needs moisturization too. Hair massages can help treat a dry and irritated scalp as the oils can penetrate deep into, leaving it nourished. Use Maaté’s Baby Hair Massage Oil by clicking here.
